Unhappy 1980 gottlieb torch pinball machine

I recently bought a pinball machine and when I turn it on the lights on the game come on but the score board numbers do not come on and when I push the credit button nothing happens. Im new at this have had good luck repairing arcade games but new to the pinball machines. Any help appreciated! Thanks

Well, Gottlieb's legacy holders won't let us see any manuals. http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=25...o=38514&zoom=1
Have you checked fuses for continuity? Got "Match" or "Game Over" light? Can you add credits to the machine? Any signs of +5 V logic supply ?

Default 1980 torch gottlieb pinball problem

yes all the fuses are good also the game over light flashes like the game is over but none of the score lights are on. When I push the start button I get nothing. And nothing when I push the test button.

Default gottlieb system 1

the next thing to do is check dc output voltages on the power supply. the voltages are 4,5,8,-12,42, and 60. output voltages are found on top and right connectors. does your machine have the original cpu or the newer version?
