I’m Trying to get a Gottlieb Panthera working. I tracked the problem to there being no 12 VDC power. I changed the capacitor and the bridge rectifier For 12 VDC power on the bottom board and I’m still not getting 12 VDC power. I’m stumped. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated.

Where are you not getting 12v? Off the transformer or at the power supply board?

Did you pull and test the fuse?

Fuse was good, but it was making bad contact in the holder. Thanks for the help recaging me to it being so simple.

It was just a bad fuse holder?

Yup, I feel silly, but for the life of me I couldn’t figure it out. When I checked the fuse in the holder it was showing good continuity, cleaned the fuse holder and squeezed the tips contacts and it’s fine.

The bridge rectifier originally tested bad also, so it isn’t like I was just throwing parts at a problem.

Great! Glad you got it fixed and thank you for posting the solution you had.
