Baywatch (Sega 1995)
 
Hi everyone,

I'm a new member and have a question about my Sega Baywatch machine. Much of the machine was not working. I had a pinball maintenance man come and fix it up. He said it was working at about 30% and once he left it was operating at about 90%. The only major issues that I see right now are that the back panel lighting and some lighting on the game area is not working (the video screen is operating fine). I'm thinking this could be a loose or broken circuit. I do have the users manual. Can someone point me in the right direction as to what I should look for to fix this? Any information or help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

About the lights that are and aren't working...Are the game lights under playfield inserts working? They are controlled in a matrix. What about the playfield general illumination lamps? Do you have any overheating connections in your back box?

I don't believe there is any overheating. The general bulbs that provide most of the lighting on the game that should be on all of the time are not working. However, there are other lights that are working such as the special features lighting for multiball etc.

starting on page 40 is the lamp test area
go thru that see what if anything lights up
you can also go thru the solenoid testing there too if'n ya' want
then get back to us and we'll continue with testing other crap

OK, all of your game controlled lamp matrix lights are working. That is real good news! Your G.I. lamps being out ...I guess all fuses have checked good? I have download of your manual and will give it a look...C_S

Aren't they in series, where one takes them all out like Christmas lights? Because of this, I'm thinking broken wire.

You say thee G.I. lamps are on all the time. I see a relay that controls the G.I. circuit. So I guess they are only on during game play. ? . I see the usual 6 volt G.I. transformer tap and maybe two fuses. And I don't think any of these bulbs are in series. Could be some flash lamps in series cause it looks like 32V supply which seems high. Hope it's a fuse. Let us know what you find out...
