Hi. I just joined PinSide after a friend told me about the site. I appreciate the service and help!
I have a 1993 Twilight Zone pinball. After I turn it on, everything starts to come up, the lights, etc like normal. And the front panel goes thru the test sequence but does not point out anything abnormal other than to check the flippers. Then, when I hit the start button, nothing else happens other than sometimes it may make a short sound... somewhat like a hi tone pitch. The normal music does not come on and the flippers do not work either.
I opened up the game and behind the back panel, I took my volt ohm meter and found one of the 250V fuses blown. It is located on the right lower quadrant and second one down. It looks like it is a 7amp. When I replaced it, and turned the machine back on, it seemed like it was going to come up all of the way but within a few seconds, I saw the same fuse blow again....
So, do you think there is a short somewhere? There are so many wires, that I just do not know where to look. Any suggestions are well appreciated.
