on dr dude there are three colored lites on the top right of playfield--yellow, red and green

only the yellow one works...i changed the bulbs in the other two but it didn't help, they are still out and the bulbs are good...could this be a fuse problem? if so, which one? if not, what else could it be?

thank you

first check the sockets for good connection

Could also be bad diode, if the socket isnt the problem

Have a look at the lamp matrix and see if the non-working ones are in the same row or column.

Page 2-38 and 2-39 in the manual.

and if they are in same row?

Broken row wire. At one of those lamps or the one before in the daisy-chain.

Note they are not necessarily wired in the same order as shown on the matrix.

If it is a wire as Terry says, it will be obvious when you look at/pull the wires to those lamps.

Easy job if it is just re-soldering a wire.

If you are unsure where it attaches, just look at the other lamps in the string that are intact.
