Restarting the Lift is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

Puzzle

US Version

The wires connecting the elevator to the button controlling it have somehow been severed. However, if you can connect the negative (-) and positive (+) wires on the top to the wires carrying the same charge below, you can fix the elevator. To do this, you need to draw lines between sets of X-shaped terminals. Draw two lines to connect each positive and negative terminal to its counterpart and get the elevator running again.

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

You need to connect wires with the same symbol together. So + goes with + and - with another -.

If you examine the tangle of wires, finding the solution should be simple enough.

US Version

To make things simpler, identify the wires that are connected to some other area offscreen, and eliminate them as possible answers.

In the top row of wires, the rightmost wire and the one third from the right run offscreen.

TO make things simpler, identify the wires that are connected to some other area off the screen and eliminate them as possible answers.

In the top row of wires, the rightmost wire and the one third from the right run off the screen.

US Version

The leftmost terminal in the upper set of four is connected to the wire carrying a negative (-) current.

Now it's up to you to figure out the other three terminals you need to use.

UK Version

The leftmost terminal in the top set of four is connected to the wire carrying a negative (-) current.

Now it's up to you to work out the other three terminals you need to use.


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!
