Thanks very much, that helps a lot, there were 3 fuse holders that I wasn't sure what amps were right, but it looks like 5amps would be correct. I have got the machine in a tv repair shop in Liverpool at the moment, the first shop that have said that they will take it on, I had rang 4 places previous, but as soon as you say arcade and electro mechanical they don't want to know. If it is a small machine you want repairing it is a good idea to tell them that, as I think they assume it is going to be a space invader type machine that will take up a lot of room in their shop, I would have liked to have made more progress in repairing the machine myself, especially as one company wanted £290 before they would even look at it ! I might have to take an electronics course at college ? the shop rang me on friday saying that they had made a fair amount of progress on it, cleaning contact points, repairing any faulty capacitors etc, it seems to be going through a reset mode and that they had got as far on it as they can, so I am picking it up on monday to check it out, they have had the machine for 4 days and the repair cost is £150. Although they say that they hadn't checked the coin mech, interestingly my machine seems to only accept the older two pence coin, I will see what happens when I try to register a credit.

Sounds about right. The older 2np coin has no steel in it, the newer ones have and get stuck in the mech.

First job is to remove the pcbs and replace all components, especially capacitors and resisters. You won't get exact parts but you will get equivalents. In the case of caps, always go higher, especially on voltage. It will work the same but last longer. Check for dry solder joints, clean all pcb connector pins. Then check your machines wiring with a diagram. Relays are very easy to get and alter, if needed, to how it needs to be wired.

Got the machine back from the tv repair shop and some progress has been made, as now some of the playing card lamps are illuminated, though keeping more than 10 lamps on causes one of the 3 fuses to blow, the machine did come with some information about this, which mentions the checking the bulbs, the 1 amp deck fuse would blow (not sure which fuse is the deck one )

I presume the machine needs to be reset somehow ? I might try turning on the game with one of the connectors disconnected.
