Fuse question for WPC-95
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:51:37 AM »
I have a junkyard and I had a power surge last night and it blow main fuse in the pin.
I have a power surge protector but for some reason it was the only game not plugged into it.

I know that the WPC-95 take the smaller fuses but can I put larger fuse into main fuse?

Larger size in diameter, no, length possibly, larger amps hell no. If it blows again, it was a heck of a surge, and your inside filters have shorted.

F103 solenoids 1 thru 8...     I'd say auto plunger took a hit, wires crossed or something like that happens when you lift the playfield up.

1  auto plunger
2  refrigerator popper
3  power crane
4  not used
5  scoop down
6  bus diverter
7  knocker
8  not used

So, you changed the fuse, right?  Then you started a game, correct?  Then it kicks the ball out, you hit the fire button and it tries to shoot the ball out, blows the fuse since the coil is shorted, and game stops???

Time to stop putting power to the game and do some checks. Can see what transistor failed? If not, do you know how to test them? Also what was "the loose wire that was touching something"?

Ok, so game is now not working?  We are not there, and your the eyes, and you need to be detailed in writing what's going on to fix it over the www.  Probably going to need pix of the back of the driver board.  Instead of the fuse blowing, probably blew a trace off the back next to the transistor driver.  Hope not, but that currently sounds what your posting back.

I guess you’re good to go cause you don’t say anything else is wrong with the pinball machine.  Let the good times roll.
