New to trying to fix Pinball machines. I replaced the boards with new boards from Flippp!

Everything was working fine, except the controlled lights. GI lamps all seemed fine.

I was trying to understand the voltage flowing through the Tilt switch and accidentally shorted the solenoid switch to the controlled lights and the bonus lights flashed on the board.

I was trying to check the voltage at the field lamps, but had the meter set to ohms. When I touched the probe to the field light they all went out. So now the GI lamps are out.

All fuses seem good. What would have burned out?

Where would I start with the controlled lights? May have damaged something else when I shorted the solenoid

Thanks

Did you check all your fuses? Sounds as though you may have shorted it out. BTW.....you should repost this in the solid state forums. There will be lots of knowledgeable folks there. You have this posted in the EM pinball section.

You'll get better replies on one of the Solid State forums. This is Electro Mechanical.
