I have a 1980 midway pacman with a G07-CBO Electrohome monitor. The monitor wasnt working so I did a full cap kit, flyback, HOT, and regulator replacement. I also replaced the fuses. After I plugged everything in my 2amp slow blow fuse on the cabinet blew and all the power went out on the cabinet. I disconnected the monitor and replaced the fuses and the lights came back on. I rechecked all my soldering work and everything was fine. None of the caps were grounded bad and the HOT was in the correct position. Im not sure what else to do to get my machine running! PLEASE HELP!!!

fuse 902 on the chassis which is on the primary ac circuit is rated at 3 amp, the cabinet fuse being rated at 2 amp seems a bit low to me

although i just looked at the schems and seems to state mains fuse at 2a, just seems strange to me

in any case blown fuse you should check diodes in the primary ac circuit of the chassis if it indeed the chassis causing the fuse to blow
