Mr. Pinball Tip:

As a TV repairman for 23 years, I now repair pins as a hobby. I found that a blown fuse usually means a short somewhere. Pop in a new fuse and in a matter of seconds it is gone. Solution--locate some old circuit breakers used in TV's, etc., in the 60's & 70's. They come in many different amperes. Just attach a couple of clip leads to the proper size circuit breaker and then clip it to the blown fuse socket. The breaker will kick until the problem can be found. Then you can install a new fuse. These breakers can be found at older TV repair shops and some electronic parts stores.
