Is my Popeye Working correctly

Hi All,

I am new to Pinball and that's the first time I play Popeye that my daughter just bought.

I am wondering if it play as designed or if there is somme issues with the WPC/CPU/EPROM?

Here are a few things I have noticed:

_ Sometime a ball gets in the start lane while a ball is still running in the game. (Not the multi balls situation where it fires automatically)

_ Sometime the game ends while a ball is still running in the game.

_ Sometime the top flippers stop working while the ball is still in the to level.

There is so much going on that I can't say what are the status of all the lights when these "Issues" are happening".

_ ALL Light, Solenoids and Contacts are working correctly.

_ Once the game stopped, flippers not working anymore while the ball was going down the Animals ramp.

Please can some one tell me if I have a faulty game or if I don't know how to play it...

It looks like despite of checking that all Contacts were working, a dry joint solder on the 1st Trough contact (No 56) was causing this intermittent problem.
