I have a Atari Superman pin, I made a stupid mistake, fixing the lighting bulbs when the machine was on. Somehow some metalic when down and I shorted the machine.
Now only GI light is working, no other light or display or coindoor.
I have replaced all 7 fuses, but one of them had a metal wire connecting, so I gues it bypassed the fuse...
Where shall I begin???

There's a good chance that you sent high voltage to somewhere that it wasn't supposed to go.

Probably not an easy fix, unfortuantely.

Inspect the boards in the backbox for any signs of burn damage or blown components.

Worst case scenario, you may have to send out the boards for repair.

Does anybody knows who repair Atari Boards?

Quoted from United555:

Superman won't boot up.

Tell him he has to because they're part of the costume.
It just won't look the same if he's wearing slippers.

Can you post some pictures of the boards?

Did you measure all the voltages with a voltmeter?

One of the few places that work on Superman boards: https://www.flippers.com/service.html

You could also try asking here--I'm not sure if they repair those boards or not: https://ksarcade.net/board-repair.html
