Hi Rec.pinball,That line that blows a GI fuse. I'd unwire the suspect socket, if fuse doesn't blow you have a bad socket, bad bulb, or bad fuse. Otherwise unwire all the sockets on that line and hook back up one at a time until you find the bad socket or bulb.
I could use some help, the upper G.I. is blowing a fuse in my AFM and I just can't find it. What I have done to date:
1. Lifted playfield and examined all wires about 2 dozen times.... nothing found....
2. Unscrewed each socket, examined, and tested each bulb (LED) outside of the machine. All LED bulbs were fine and worked. I only did this once....
3. I figured out that the pop bumper G.I is part of that circuit (that should have been obvious).... I pulled the cap on the one pup bumper I could easily get to and it looked ok, it has a normal bulb in it. I have not examined the other two....
4. I have looked at the pops a long time to see if anything is touching around there, thought there was one... shifted that, but that did not solve.
5. I have blown about half dozen fuses along the way... thinking it should work, but it does not.
is there some way to narrow this problem down ? Tell me if these are crazy:
1. Can I just cut the wires going to the pop bumper G.I. and by pass them. Take the lead going in and out of the pops and just connect them. If I did that and the G.I does not blow, I would know it is one of the pop bumpers.
2. A more thorough inspection of every G.I. socket.... what should I be looking for that I am missing ? How would I know if it shorting ?
3.. What else...seems like this should be an easy one to fix....
One last question for the group... if I decide to rebuild the pops...(if that turns out to be the G.I problem may as well). What do I have to take off of the upper playfield to get to them.... it did not look as easy as just pulling off the right ramp.
Hope everyone is doing well.
