Hello to all!

I recently acquired a Mars Trek in beautiful condition but with the usual (or unusual) flaws, at first, the GI fuse is blown right after the machine is powered on. :/ Secondly, the score reels won't "score" anything.. but the score motor will work (spin when something is hit)... sigh... any ideas?

If you care, you can follow the progress of this machine on my Twitch channel:

I already cleaned the light sockets of the head and also cleaned up and adjusted the switches on the cabinet, my next step is to adjust and clean the switches from under the playfield but any lead on what is going on with the above issues will be great.

As usual,

Thanks to everybody!

Check shorts for the GI problem, and all scoring runs thru the Player Unit so check that out.

Awesome... I'll service the unit on my next round. I'll report my progress. Thanks! As for the GI, I'm hoping to find it.

Found the issue scoring issue! One stack of switches at one score reel wasn't properly adjusted...!

But back to the GI. I searched for the obvious and nothing out of place, but I noticed that if the fuse is on its place and if I turn on the machine, the fuse will blow... But if I place the fuse -after - the machine is on, the GI will be fine... Any ideas?

Thanks!
