Hi Pinsiders!

So I have a Cleopatra solid state machine and I recently had to replace one of the pop bumper coils (pic). After replacing the coil I tried playing the game and after about 20 seconds I noticed that all three of then pop bumpers would stop working. I lifted the playfield and noticed that the fuse (pictures) would keep blowing. I check all connections and cleaned the fuse mount and put in a brand new fuse but it's still blowing. I have a new Ni-Wumpf system 1 replacement CPU board installed and went through the coil tests but I'm not sure it's running correctly because the fuse is obviously blown. Everything was working prior to installing the new coil so I know that must be the problem but I'm stumped. Any and all help is much appreciated.

New coil good ? Diode good ? Coil wired right ?

Try removing the wires from the new coil. Tape them up so they are safe. Then try a new fuse. If it doesn't blow, at least you isolated the problem to the coil area.

Good idea LTG. I'll try taping them off, unfortunately it will have to be tomorrow. Stay tuned
