Hi guys,

Picked up yesterday a Blackwater 100. Could not test a play; it was giving the "ball missing" error.
Came back home, tried and it worked.
Tried again this morning; "ball missing".

I reflowed all the soldering for the opto through boards, still having the same issue.

Any idea?
If it is realted to the optos as I fear; where can I find optos for a 6803? They seem quite specific.

Many thanks in advance!

Maybe one or more optos are bad, but there is also a known problem with Blackwater 100, light from RAIN lamps disturbs the trough optos. Try putting a piece of cardboard there to shield the lamps.

For anyone looking, this crazy game requires 4 balls in the trough even though it never uses more than 3
