Greetings, I have a Q*Berts Quest which i am having issues with. Been having some odd issues on this table, which had "kinda" been resolved with some pins peing re-connected.

Last night i had an issue on another machine which led to a our power switch being triggered. I reset the switch and everything booted up again, however Q*Bert now boots up with no PF lights/lamps at all. The BG lights up, however TILT is being lit up to.

When the game boots up, the the all PF lights do light up for about 1 second, but do not stay on. So these lights do work, but just dont stay on.

All fuses have been checked and replaced, including the bumper ones. The manual suggest there should be 2 fuses in fusespot F9, however i cannot find any F9 around. The bottom fuses go up to 8 & then 10-13 are under the PF. Not f9 to be seen.

Game will start up, but no flipper again.

Boards are original - not Pascal Janin

Anyone know how i should look to resolve this - does this sound likely to be a board issue?

I think F9 is designated for your power line into the machine.
If it is in tilt that would turn off the the playfield lights. Check the Q relay function and all tilt/slam switches.
What are the displays doing during this..that also helps diagnose the machine.
