Greetings! New High Speed owner.

We unfortunately had to remove the Head in order to get the machine down to my basement. Everything went swimmingly, EXCEPT in the process of getting everything set, the yellow wires soldered on the lower right corner of the Power Board snapped off. They were just severely weakened stranded wire. I have no issues resoldering them, I just wanted to verify the proper order of the wires.

The drawing in the manual makes it look like that pins 1->4 of connector 40 go: upper-left, lower left, lower right, upper right onto that corner of the power board. is that correct? Can someone with this pin give it a quick inspection to verify? I took tons of photos prior to the disassembly/reassembly, but unfortunately none of them clearly show the wire order.

Another schematic later on in the manual seems to indicate that this area of the Power Board is for "General Illumination". Based on that, I should be able to temporarily leave those wire off just to test the general function of the game (to verify proper reassembly), correct?

It will be fine to test without it.

Those connectors sometimes have yellow and white wires. The yellow take the 2 holes to the left and the white the 2 to the right.

If this doesn't sound right post a pic of what you have

Thanks, Cheddar.

In looking back at my photos, I do actually have a pretty clear photo of that connector. I believe this isn't the first time those wires have been re-attached; a prior repair looks like it involved some electrical tape.

But the photo was better than my eyesight last night - - you are correct, two wires are yellow, the others white. And it does appear that the yellows are on the left and the whites on the right. (On mine they had unusually soldered the right wires in from the back - perhaps due to space?).

I glean from your comment that is doesn't really matter which order the two yellows are on the left, or the whites are on the right.
