Hello i hope someone can help and/or someone from JJP could help me to source any needed replacement parts.

Something strange and unwelcome happened while I was trying to unlock the middle left bumper ( it often get stuck Under the play field protector ) Somehow it must have touched the metallic bar that hold the play field in the same time and created a burst in the pinball.

Anyway, since then most of my switches are qualified as stuck closed ( red ) or just non responsible ( blue ) - see picture - the dedicated switches are working fine as well as the led or the computer, so it seems the issue may come from the switch board ( or one or more fuzzes ). Can I order a new board? What should I check? ( I tried the usual Unplugging an replugging of all the cables as well as reboot with little success.

Please help, cheers. √Čtienne from France

It certainly looks like something was shorted out.

Try contacting JJP support. They may be able to better guide you on a possible fix or what replacement parts/boards that you may need.

Will do thanks, you you advice emailing them directly and trying to contact someone from JJP directly through this forum?

First thing I would check are the fuses. The manual should detail where they are located.

Just for those who may have the same issue.

JJP came nicely to the rescue and suggested to check a list of connections in and out of the i/o board (#15-0001-00) J201 etc; a pinball repairman came at home, he went through the list without succes and came to the conclusion that the board needs to be changed as some of the components are burning hot and probably dead ( I posted a ticket on JJP site ).

What is still worrysome is that we don't know where the short circuit came from. We suspect that the wirring of the left top bumper or the skill target ( both are very close to the hedge of the playfield ) may have touch the mettalic bar that hold the playfield ( ground ) and burn everything. If anyone had a similar past experience with the LE 75th version that would be usefull.

Cheers, we will prevail

( sorry for the broken english )
