Working on a #JokerPoker restore and I'm about 98% done. Have one last issue that's driving me crazy.
What I have done....
-Have done all ground mods
-power supply tests perfect (original with upgraded 6800 ohm cap)
-fixed remote transistor problem (Kings bank)
-game powers up and plays
The Aces Drop Target bank coil is locked on and blows a fuse. I replaced the driver board transistors (both) and still have the issue. Removed the cable from the MPU board and still have 22V at the fuse (under playfield) so I know that the MPU isn't the issue. I checked for shorts, didn't see anything. Resistors check OK. Coil and diode check OK.
Could I just have a bad transistor(s)? Any other ideas?
Of course I could get a replacement board but not even sure that's the problem and didn't want to pay for that when the board seems ok except for the one issue.
Thanks in advance for any help.
