Just got a broken Firepower last week. When I got it all that it did was light up the GI.
In the last few days I have replace both male and female interconnects.
Replaced all caps on power board,.
Replaced lamp resistors.
Replaced most of the Scanbe sockets. Still have 4 left to go but none in stock locally at the moment.
Took the battery holder off the board.
After doing all that I put all the boards back in and powered it up.
Opened the coin door and turned the machine off and on quickly and the game boots into attract mode.
Used the coin switch to put credits on the game.
Pressed the Start button and got a ball served up and the game played great. Or so I thought. lol
After flipping the ball around a bit and everything working great the ball went into the kickback. The coil locked on and blew the solenoid fuse.
Replaced the fuse and started booted the game back into attract mode and now after taking credits the start button refuses to do anything. Just dead. Cleaned the contacts and still will not start the game anymore.
Any ideas are much appreciated.
