Hello,

We have a Willy Wonka LE that currently won’t boot up. If we flip the power switch a little buzzing noise start going. Nothing more. We looked at the power box and upon powering on once more saw a bolt of electric come from the box. Now there is no small noise or anything when powering on. Would this just be replacing the power box? The fuse in the box is fine. Thanks a lot!

Plug something into the service outlet - that's always hot. Check the cord in the back of the machine. If you actually smoked the parts under the power box, unplug the game from the wall before you remove the screws and investigate. Re-seat the line fuse holder too.

Service plug works. We played w the fuse more and got the buzzing back. Maybe sounds like coming from the main battery but hard to say. Definitely more towards back. Thanks!
