ok. all of "column 7" lights are stuck on at all times on my metallica pro.
even is attract mode or test mode. they are just solid lit.
all inserts with yellow/violet stripe wire. (left loop cross, rt ramp snake, upper left (skill shot lane), crank it led, etc.)
connector j13 pin 3 on power driver goes to this wire.
manual says they all go to "U11". but they actually go to "U10".
no U11 even exists on the power driver from what i see.

anyhow- according to the manual, any row or column that has an LED bulb should connect to a DTS before it goes to the led bulb. there are 7 "DTS" shown on a page in the manual. i see 6 of them under the playfield. I can not find the 7th one under the playfield. the one missing also has that yellow/violet wire. this is the one that SHOULD go to the "crank it" led above the scoop i beleive, which is on column 7.
is the DTS for mine missing? is that why they are all stuck on?

Isn't there some kind of warranty, etc?

Of course there is, front cover of the manual, first thing you see ... 1-800-kickers.

Then why try and fix yourself and void the warranty. I'd call Stern asap...

i called them friday, was thrown to voice mail, and got no call back. i really wanted to know an answer before the weekend was over so when i finally do speak to them on the phone i can point out things to them quicker. i need to know if its a code issue or board issue or if the dts is missing. i figured someone here who has one can just look under the playfield...so i can be a step ahead.

I have the Same Problem. Did anybody know what is the issue?

The yellow/violet wire does not go to a DOTS (diode on terminal strip) if that is what you are referring to. I found all 7 of these (DOTS) on my MET Pro. The Red-xxx return wire is the one that connects to the diode(s) as shown on page 17 of the manual. See attached photo for location of the 7 DOTS (circled in yellow). The top one is obscured by a white connector above it in the photo.

You don't void warranties by making your own repairs. Pinballs are meant to be serviced. They aren't TV sets.

Entire stuck on row or col is probably shorted transistor on the board.

Hey there! Got a moment?
