Always keep extra flipper opto-interrupters handy. Black ones are best.

Soldering a wire to the wrong side of a diode can yield some curious results.

Quoted from markp99:

Diode Corollary: A single $0.05 diode can knock out the entire HV leg of a power supply! ...and a 5 minute repair can bring it all back to life!

Sounds like I lucked out - no blown fuses or burnt transistors. After replacing a broken standup target on my TOTAN I found that hitting it during play activated the left ball save.

Today I also discovered that sometimes flippers buzz not because of bad links or old coils but because the springs are a little too tight.
