Hey everyone. I’m a noob to repair and could use some help. I pulled my ramp to fix an issue with the divertor. It was sticking so I applied a little oil (zoom spout oiler) to the ends of the shafts with a Q-tip and it no longer sticks so I thought I was set.
I put the ramp back together and when I turn the game on, there’s a buzz, all the coils fire, and then the F5 fuse blows. The GI stays on.
I did put fuses on the bridge rectifiers since that had never been done.
Replacing F5 just causes it to blow again at powerup even with the coin door open (thought that might keep the coils from firing but I guess not).
I’ve looked to see if I pinched any wires but I don’t see anything. If I pull the 12 pin connector off the power board it doesn’t blow F5 but nothing works. I haven’t figured out which wire powers what in that connector.
Where’s a good place to start troubleshooting? I’ve tried a number of searches but haven’t been successful.
