Hi there,

This may be a really basic question, but I have a Fish Tales that is having problems with all of the solenoids on the same wire (purple). I noticed some suspicious duct tape on said shooter coil and it looks a bit toasty. If the solenoid is out, would that cause all solenoids on this wire to not work? I know that the ball shooter is solenoid #1. Should I attempt to bypass the shooter and test the other solenoids? Just buy a new coil? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

It appears to be a fuse. For once, the issue described as "probably a fuse" was actually a fuse. Thanks for the guidance wellarmed and terryb. I'll let you know if I continue to have problems after replacing.
