Good morning Pinside! I lost power to my Flippers on my Simpson's game yesterday while trying to troubleshoot a different issue and can't figure it out. A bare wire touched a connection and now I have nothing. The switches check out on the diagnostic tests, the board seems fine, and the fuses seem fine as well.

I am new to repairing pinball machines but am up for the challenge. Please help if you can.

I've posted a 1 minute video on YouTube showing the issue, but haven't been a member here long enough to post a direct link to it... here is the video ID, you can just search it on YouTube: TQ8ZY3BpnxQ

Thanks for any help!

Check the fuses on the board underneath the playfield on the left hand side. I don't have a Simpsons any longer but as I recall, that is where the board associated with the flippers is located.

Just did this and all 4 are testing out fine when pulled from the board.
