    Learned via another tech over 30+ years ago:

    "Understand that EM pinball machines high voltage electrical power is ON at all times, unless modified for home use, regardless if there is a toggle style power switch. UNPLUG the machine and give a few minutes for dissipation or pay the price to yourself, machine, or both."

    - TBK

    (If you don't believe me get out a voltmeter, I have seen dozens of people get mildly electrocuted by being incredibly stupid)
