All at once, it seems, the following lights do not light: 1) Half the GI lights on the backbox, 2) All of column 2, and 3) All of row 2. Is this just bad luck, or something deeper? I have not had a chance to troubleshoot anything except the GI lights, except that it's not the fuses or anything in the wiring past the power board.

Try reseating the ribbon cable between MPU and driver.

This will sound crazy, but check it out ... I had a funhouse that was missing the plastic coating on the lockdown bar lever. When the coin door was closed, it shorted to the bulb behind the coin slot. Mine blew a fuse. Had to wrap the lever in electrical tape and solved the problem

zacaj, you just saved me a TON of work, because I never would have thought of that. It did solve the problem. THANKS!

I only knew that because three hours before you posted, I went to play my Funhouse and noticed about 15 lights were out, plus one string of GI in the backbox, and then I spent half an hour wiggling connectors before finding that ribbon cable.

I replaced mine with a new one. If it has problems once it'll probably have them again, and cables are cheap
