Hi - first post here and a newbie at pinball and pinball repair. I purchased a Meteor machine about 5 years ago and have played it off and on with no issues. The other day though went I went to turn it on it was dead. I tested the outlet and I know that works. Any basic easy things I can check to see what the issue might be? Thank you in advance!

Do the lights under the plastics and behind the backglass still come on?

Check the fuses?

Check the plug , it may be just a wire has come undone , if not check main fuse , but turn game off at the wall .
If you have a meter check for power at the line filter . small chrome box , Again be carefull thats mains voltage .

Thanks. I'll open it up and see what I can find with the fuses. Never opened it up before so it's a learning opportunity for me.

The power comes in at J2 on the power supply , Try re seating that plug .
F6 is the main fuse , manual shows its 3amp slow blow .
