I'm working on a Theater of Magic that had numerous issues and has probably been sitting in a warehouse for quite sometime. I'd gotten most issues resolved, including PCB work replacing BR2 due to no 5v, yet during a playthrough, all the backbox flashers locked on, where upon checking inside the backbox, I found C11 ruptured. I replaced C11 and also did BR4 just for good measure and everything began working again for a day. The next day, upon booting up a game, I noticed that the flashers were not working once again. I removed and checked the fuse in F11 and have continuity, but then I checked for voltage on F11 and have none. Checking J102, pins 1-4 and there's no AC here. I check the white/red line output from the transformer and no AC here. Does this sound like a transformer issue or is there somewhere else I should troubleshoot before doing a transformer swap?
