"Lid" Error Message

Hey all,

I just got my machine running a few minutes ago after a minor circuit breaker repair. For some reason I keep getting the LID error after running the machine at 3200RPM for a couple minutes. The lid is well secured as far as I can tell. 

Any ideas what the reason might be for this message?

I'm sorry, the output is across pins 4 and 3, not 5 and 3. My mistake. Make all voltage measurements with the machine plugged in and powered on.

The output reading between pins 5 and 3 is 0.00vDC. I get some meter fluctuations when I take an AC reading. Meter jumps from 0.75vAC down to zero within a few seconds. 

The input reading between pins 1 and 3 is 1.38vDC with the machine unplugged and 18.5vDC with the machine plugged in (but powered off). 

The two capacitors, C17 & C18, look identical to your photo above.
