Im posting this for a friend who bought a CC cinema. Apparently they brought it home played maybe 10-12 games and on completion of the last ball for the last player (3players i believe). The game has since been stone dead. I wasnt there but they said there was no sounds or smells(burning) from machine. EMs are not my forte so looking for advice as the where to begin. I have already checked all the fuses i could find for voltage and continuity. Thats it other than plug into other outlets etc
Thank you for any helpful ideas.

If the Lock relay doesn't activate when you push the Left flipper button, try activating it manually.

is it reset and dead, or still showing scores from last game?

Have you ruled out the line cord and plug? Voltage tests at the transformer would be next.

Do you own and know how to use a multimeter?

So after probing around i found it. Checked voltages on the fuses and the 10amp fuse that goes to the on /off switch had a wire that had fallen off. It hid itself very well as it is black and the bottom of the cab is nice and dirty. Also it tested straight across the fuse with voltage so Just assumed it was good. Sometimes its the simple stuff.
