So I have another post on this game trying to figure out why some lights under the playfield are not lit. Tested bulbs and not an issue. Don't think it's the sockets either, yet. Started this thread separately because I am concerned about what I found doing a test on continuity in the lower cabinet. Hoping I'm just not understanding something here.
Was doing a rudimentary test to see if I could figure out where the wires are going from a couple of the sockets where the light is not on when it should be. When trying to do this via a continuity test with my multimeter I couldn't find where the wires are running. The reason, maybe I'm dumb or something, but when I clamp or touch the wire at the socket and then to where I think the wire runs to it shows good continuity, but then I touched a couple of other switches and they also showed continuity with the lamp socket. Tried another multimeter and same thing. For fun, I tested a fuse installed in the lower cabinet fuse block. It shows continuity, which is good. Then I touch one end of the fuse with one probe and a couple of the other fuses with the other probe and they shows continuity as well. So, maybe I have found the other end of the wire coming from the lamp socket, but now I'm concerned. I can touch a blade on most switches with a probe and another blade on a switch on the other side of the cabinet with the other probe and same thing. Again, tried this with a different multimeter and same thing as well. Game is off during the test, unplugged too. No, not testing on the ground wires either, at lest I don't think I am.
Now I am a little tired and hoping I'm just being silly, but what the heck?? Is there something dangerous going on? The game actually works pretty well, save a number of lights and maybe the Advance Bonus. Maybe some other things too, but nothing seems REALLY wrong.
