You now own a pinball machine - get ready to solder

The wire is hanging off the flipper coil which that fuse doesn't "cover". Replace the fuse and see if it blows. If it does then you have a locked coil somewhere on the playfield.

I was wrong about the flipper coil wire - looks like it's hanging off the EOS switch.

Definitely get a Stern flipper setup in there if you can spring for it -

when those caps go bad, they can short ON causing a stuck switch, which can create all sorts of problems. In the mind of an op . . . "cut cap - problem solved! The switch still registers sometimes!"

pull fuse out of holder. Set meter to continuity and put the leads on either side. if it buzzes, you've got continuity. if not, the fuse is bad and you replace it. Visual inspection *can* mean nothing.
