Hi guys!
Can anyone snap a pic of which fuse controls the lower gi on whitewater and also which connector on the board controls those lowers?
My gi’s went out all together last night.

Thx guys

Connector is J120 and J 121. I'm pretty sure there are a couple of lines that run to the lower playfield on a WH20. If all your GI went out, it's probably a problem at the plug where the GI power comes in. That's J115.

Which fuse would be blown?

Not necessarily a fuse. Could be a burnt connection.

Understood but i first wanna change the fuse that the lower playfield uses, just to eliminate that option.
Any idea which fuse coorilates to it?
Thx!!

See those five fuses in the picture ? Three on the left side and two to the right of them ?

One of them. Pull and check each one with a meter. Or to narrow down further check your manual.

You have pins ? Get a cheap one.

Quoted from Dantesmark:

Youtube has lots of short how to videos. No one knew how until they learned.

Only 5 on that corner. With a meter you could have pulled and checked all in the time it took to post.

How do your connectors on that corner of the board look ?

Update...

Apparently one of my star post lights was touching a gi socket in my right slingshot.
I removed, added a new fuse, and boom im back in business!!

Thx so much guys, for helping troubleshoot! I really love this community and this hobby! Keep it up!!

Had the same issue with my White Water with GI, burnt connector. Nice job OP for finding the issue

so you don't know how to fix a game, but you're willing to add electrical mods to the game. This just shows the problem with this hobby.

Love the negativity Marvin!
Actually the game came with post lights when i bought it.

Most of us went in from the deep-end .... it’s admirable that OP clearly states he is fairly new.

Good job in finding the culprit, but like LTG says, go to your local hardware store and buy yourself a (cheap) multimeter, it’s always your startingpoint when encountering electrical difficulties. Make sure you buy one who can measure continuity (buzz-beep)

Got A multimeter last night, as well as some fuses!
Now im certified to add electrical mods to my game!!
