Spotlight bulb burning out?

Post by Eddie » Mon Jun 23, 2008 8:31 pm

Would anyone have ideas as to why the 555 bulb in the left upper playfield spotlight (Position 45-A, p2-38 in the service manual) keeps burning out? I have gone through 3 since I bought the machine 2 weeks ago. Thx

Could just be bad luck

or...

If someone hacked the spotlight and hooked it up to the wrong power source that would cause it to blow out too soon. When you put a new lamp in is it noticeably brighter than the others? If it is that's your problem.

The light emitted is the same as the others. I have not checked the voltage going to the socket as of yet. Maybe it is just bad luck.
