    Distorted screen and smoke

    I have a Gottlieb low boy ???
    Moved it a couple of days ago . Turned it on today and see pic below , the screen is all haywire. Then the dreaded electrical smell and smoke coming from the area in pic 2. It has a 60in1 board and I know jack s__t about these things. Pinball yes arcade no. Any ideas ?

    Looks like the brown glue strikes again. It corrodes the copper windings. If u take the yoke off you'll probably see.
