Hey folks,

Last week I did my first flipper rebuild on my DE Simpsons. I took lots of pics and made sure I soldered the wires to the new coil just as the old ones were done (keeping in mind the diode direction). When I turned on the game for the first time, I noticed that one of the lights on the speaker box was extremely bright. Specifically it was the "5X" light. The pop bumper lights were also VERY bright. I tried switching bulbs, but the problem persisted. Also, after I turned off the game the pop bumper lights glowed a good 3-5 seconds even with the power off. Any suggestions to fix this?

Measure the voltage at the lamp socket glowing so brightly. If it’s the same voltage as the solenoid circuit you must have a short somewhere.
