Hello everyone,
Have a strange one at least for me. just powered up my Boogie and all the GI lights start flashing super fast the playfield lights relay is clicking in sync. I powered down and looked for shorted lights or wires also checked all the connectors all looked good. powered back up and worked for about 3 balls then back to flashing like crazy No lights are flashing on any circuit board matching the light and relay rhythm. I have removed all the boards 1 at a time and it dosen't change anything except for the driver board and the bonus board either removed will stop the flashing .
Has anyone seen this before ?
Any tips/ suggestions greatly appreciated.

Are the connector pins corroded? Corroded pins may lead to intermittent connectivity and could cause all sorts of issues.

Thanks for the reply,
All pins / connectors have been either cleaned or replaced has been working fine for quite a while since work was done .
No other issues or signs of problem this issue just popped up out of the blue

The next thing I might try is backtrace the logic for what controls that relay.

WIth a little back tracking and some luck its up and running again.
found that when it was flashing uncontrollably the 5 vdc regulated power was only 4.50 vdc changed regulator and got same result. Checked all wiring and then removed playfield and it still flashed. Checked all voltages form transformer and they all looked good with a little further investigation on the 5 vdc system i found that one of the wires coming off the 8000 uf cap was causing the issue if i barley touched the wire it would stop flashing. I cleaned the connection up and all is working now but plan on replacing the caps just to make sure i don't have issues later on .

Thanks
for the help .
