Hey PinHeads! I have a Williams Comet and the flippers aren't working. I checked all wire connections to the solinodes, the flipper buttons and the connections in the back-box, still no luck. The flippers were working before with out any problems. Any thoughts??

Comet flippers are identical in circuitry to any old EM flippers.
There will be a flipper power fuse somewhere in the game.
Remove it and buzz it.
That is the most likely candidate.

Small board in the head. Bridge rectifier on it and a fuse, not much more.

Red arrows point to board with fuse.

Read the fuse that was in the game and make sure it’s the same that the manual/schematics call for. Then buy that fuse.

But if I remember right is a 7amp slow blow.

Schematic in the manual calls for a 5 amp slow blow.
