Got this pin as doa. Fixed some wiring and cleaned some coonections and got it to fire upand even start a game. Backbox and playfield lights were working for a couple minutes then dead. Games still plays. Checked fuses and they are good but of course the clips are horrific. I plan to put new ones in but I want to verify the wiring here is correct or not. Looks like I may be missing a wire but not sure. Also I'm reading 12v not 6 off the two 15a fuses. Believe itor not voltage is passing through each fuse.

Hi pinballjimmy Welcome to pinside.

The schematic doesn't specify the wire color for your Red&White wire, but other than that your fuse wiring looks correct.

Fuse holder wiring appears correct.

I'm pretty sure the lights are controled by the game over relay I have the same problem and have been reading a lot,i just haven't had time to go poke around.

I replaced all the fuse holders, cleaned the coin door jones plug and set it to free play. Fires right up. Now all i have to do is clean and wax, rebuild pops and flips, refurbish dt assembly, resleeve sling coils. Aside from cleaning and adjusting some switches that'sa wrap.
