I'm working on my first pinball restauration, a simpsons pinball party. I've put the machine back together, and the flippercoils didn't work. Looked at the interlock switch in the coindoor, checked if the connectors were ok and got them working again, but then the coils right of the playfield (homers head, and the other coil surrounding it) and flashers didn't work anymore (and still don't). Noticed that on the cpu board the red light of the L200 is out, the other lights are on. I'm not an electricia and have little experience with this kind of stuf. Hopefully some one more expierenced can tell me what this could be and hopefully it's a minor thing! Could this have something to do with a burnt fuse? Or the interlock switch which is broken?

System boots up normaly, dmd works, al lightning (besides the flashers) work, sound is ok. Hopefully some one can help me. Thanks! Here are some pictures:

Check the fuses. I think it is the 20V fuse (possibly F23? not sure...don't have the manual handy)

Thanks for the quick help DCFAN! Will try that first, but need to order some fuses

While you are checking and waiting for fuses you can use your multimeter to check the amperage running through any blown fuse locations.
