My Fish Tales game had a few lights out, so I replaced them. When I turned the game back on, about 5 of the lights I replaced were still out. I figured the problem is more complicated than just changing out the lights I want to try to fix this on my own, but I do have a pinball mechanic I can call if I have to.
I went through all of the tests. I also went through every page of the operations manual. Most of it was like reading a foreign language. Luckily I am pretty math-minded, so I think I was able to identify where the problem lies. However, fixing the problem is something I have no idea how to do.
Below are pictures I took of the problems I documented while going through the tests/manual. If someone can help me make sense of this situation I would really appreciate it! Thanks!!!
Locations not lit - 11, 21, 31, 41, 51, 58(not sure), 61, 71, 81, 88
Seems like the problem is isolated to 1 or 2 rows.
This is the board that matches the matrix I think Why are there no wires connected to J137 and J133? Should there be? Would that fix my problem?
Now here is what I documented during the switch test. I don't know which switches should be open or closed. The switches that are closed are: 16, 17, 18, 24 (always closed?), 38, and 48.
Switch Matrix: The problem looks like it is isolated to 1 column and 1 row.
CPU board J206 and J209: I'm thinking that I may be missing a piece that should be connected to J206?
Solenoid/Flasher Test: #13 not working, #19 and #23 not lit.
