The playfield lights are not coming on and I'm suspecting the fuse. I see in the schematic that it's a 15 amp fuse, but I'm not sure what type of fuse to get: regular, slow-blow, or something else. The fuses in the game now look to have a metal H shape within the tube? The sticker is gone from the fuse holder so looking for a little help. Thanks

according to the schematics, it is a standard 15 amp. Not a slo-blo.

When you say tech spec, is there a particular document you are referring to?

Out of curiosity for future knowledge, what would the call out be to indicate slow-blow?

I looked at my schematic. On the schematic, the fuse says 15 amp, another says 6 amp Slo-Blo. Some say 4A S.B. etc. Some might say 6a F.B. fast blow. etc. If you go to IPDB.org, they have the schematic in 3 parts you can look at. I bought one years ago from Pinball Resource.

Here is a pic of my fuse block, sorry can't really get a better picture right now, maybe this weekend i can try to clean it up and get a better one.

So does the 6v mean anything for the fuse or is it just a 15amp fuse?

Just go to the auto parts store and buy a 15 amp fuse.

On this vintage of machine you'll be using a 15 amp regular (normal) blowing fuse and NOT a slo-blo.

Could be the lock relay.

I'm pretty sure it's just the fuse. I was messing with someone's hack job on a lamp socket and the lights all dimmed and then went out. I think the lamp shorted
