Quoted from Flynnyfalcon:

The problem has to lie in-between J6 and the transformer doesn't it. Possibly pin 3 of P3?

There was obviously a problem here before.. Do you have 6V AC on each of the 4 upper pins wrt each lower pins on J6? One of the yellow wires has been replaced with Orange and 1 of the Yel/Wh wire has been replaced with Violet. I assume they are connected somewhere between there and the transformer before P3. I would follow them back. Are all of these connections good under the tape (Circled)?

Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

The lower PF GI is not working on the Whirlwind I am working on getting back on its feet. From the schematics it looks like the lower PF GI is on a relay with the backbox GI? The connectors on the interconnect board don't look obviously burnt. Is this usually a interconnect board issue or a relay issue? I did find a relay under the PF but I'm not sure this is the "relay board" referenced in the manual?

Check this thread, may be useful.

Quoted from yzfguy:

It's the cool siren sound for the three way.....
One shot thru the pops, then around the orbit off the upper flipper, then the millions ramp off the upper flipper. It rocks!

Oh so that's how I got that had the game for about 5 years and first time I heard it was about a month ago, but didn't know what happened. Thanks, now I will be trying for it.....

Quoted from granolapunk:

Howdy, my spinner stopped rotating the Super Cellar Door Value. When I checked it out one of the wires had broken off. Can anyone tell me where this wire should go in the photo?[quoted image]

According to the switch matrix that should be the first switch in the green / blue column.

Quoted from granolapunk:

During game play it appears the two lights on the right function correctly and provide lightning at different times with the lower row of general illumination turning off and on. I dont believe any of the other three lights on the center and left ever light. I assume they should be lighting up when the other two are.

You should start at the light board, sometimes the sockets lose good contact with the board. Bend the little tabs up and swap the sockets from the left side to the right and test. Reflow the solder at the header pins and where the lamp sockets make contact with the board, and re-pin or replace the connector. Then start working back to the source which is the sound overlay board J4.

Thanks! What's my odd 6th short wire?

Can't really tell the colour from the photo but if it is Brn / Gry check this diagram.

Quoted from yaksplat:

Drop target decals at Marco are garbage.
For comparison, there's an older one from Marco on the right. Laminated, the right colors, right dimensions and good thickness.

Absolutely agree, got Taxi decals recently and they're terrible, I can make better ones with an ink jet printer and boxing tape.
