    Hey all, just wondering where to start looking for the issue of playfield coils not operating, flippers are working but all others inc drop targets, pop bumpers, kickers etc not operating, fuse on rectifier board has checked ok....suggestions please, TIA

    Check the fuse under the pf, likely the culprit.

    Yep. You will need a 1ASB fuse, assuming the craptastic fuse holder isn’t at fault.

    Yep, that's the one guys, cheers - forgot all about that one - been a while since that needed replacing

    While we are still on this machine these couple of other issues I have learned to live with, but irk me still.

    1: I have had an inherent problem with the top pop bumper going off by itself sometimes randomly, or when the spinner is activated or sometimes when side kickers are activated, the lower 2 pops are fine.

    2: The credit counter just maxes out to 40 at times by itself regardless if at 1 or 39 - any ideas as to where to trace this matter to.

    Cheers

    Does the number increase sequentially to 40, or does it "jump" to 40?

    Check the top pop bumper spoon switch for proper clearance(s).
