Not sure where to start. When I turn the game on the back glass lights up and then I hear a clicking noise and the right ramp right red (opto?) light turns on and off in sequence with the clicking. Nothing else lights up. The last time I turned the game on it played fine.

I would unplug- and visually inspect the fuses first.

Have you lifted the playfield for anyreason? or opened the backglass?

Any recent mods added?

Added color dmd.

Open the back box and look at all the leds by each fuse. Perhaps the Colordmd is just too much draw for your game.

F5 f7 f8 and f10 do not have red leds lit

Shutting the coin door should light the LEDs at some of those fuses. You may have blown the fuse to 5V (F10 I think) or shorted 5V to ground. Can you post photos showing how you have the ColorDMD connected?

Will do later when I get home.

All fuses good when door closed. Couldn't get pic in cab too dark but connected like the other color dmd I have (4 other sterns).

I hear a clicking noise in the head that doesn't stop until several seconds after the game is turned off

You tapped power off of the connector at the front right side of the machine?

Can you measure the 5v, 12v, and -12v at the top right of the board, just to the right of F13?

Take out the color dmd and see if you can get the machine to work again.

"It's dead Jim!!!" Sorry couldn't help myself-a little Star Trek humor there
Good luck with repair.

Just over 13v+ and - but nothing at 5v

Sounds like something is shorting out the 5V regulator.

Well it is fixed and working correctly. Color dmd was not the issue. Apparently when I set the game up I pinched the small ribbon cable that is just below the left side of the head. It is attached to a small board and has a white box. It was making the clicking noise. Slightly folded the head forward and pulled the ribbon cable loose and all good.
