I was doing some work on my Jumping Jack and I lost all GI and some of the insert lights. After banging my head against the backbox for a while I found that the White wire with Black that comes out of the Jones Plug had become disconnected from what I believe is the first connection on the playfield.

I am trying to find the correct place to attach it. It seems to want to go somewhere close to the insert light by the far right drop target.

Where does this go? It doesn't seem to reach any obvious White/black connections.

Anyone know the answer?

just a guess, but does that switch lug below the wire "the one with the hole in it" look like a wire has come off?
can you see the relay description? can you follow the switch wire to the next place it goes? is it to a bulb?

Here's a pic from my JJ. I don't see that specific wire but I can try and help locate it on mine and tell you where it goes.

Hi, Thanks for that. I found a location that seems to be working fine though so I will call this problem solved!
