Once, I was trying to find an intermediate short on the 50 volt line feeding
the coils, not the flippers, I would be playing and all of a sudden a fuse
would blow, and you couldn't continue the game. I remembered a tip about
finding a short on a video monitor. It was to put a 40 watt light bulb in
series with the power in. When there was a short the light would be bright,
when the short was removed, the light when dim. So I made a ''string'' of
two small 25 volt bulbs in series and jumped them ''across'' the fuse
holder. They were bright and I started looking around the playfield for the
short. I finally found that the ''wire-gate'' piece for the ball return to
the shooter lane was hitting the coil for the kick-out coil! This tip sure
helps find shorts and saves a lot on fuses! The pin game was ''WHITEWATER''
