    Just joined today and have been reading the forums--love it. I just picked up a HiLo Ace but playfield lights keep blowing fuse. Even before it blows, I still have no lights nor do I have lights for the ball count. Any advice is greatly appreciated and I'll keep reading.

    Something likely going on with the Lock relay.

    Thanks for the help. Lock relay was sticking.

    So all set? If so, please check as 'resolved.'

    How does a "sticking" lock relay, which is designed in the first place to be energized for a long period of time, cause a fuse on the GI circuit to blow?
