I bought a Captain Fantastic with a known issue: The ball never gets ejected into the shooter lane, nor does it register an end of ball.
I got it setup and I'm checking it out. Here's what I've checked.
1)The switch is working, but when I check it open, I get some faint crackling across the terminals like there's a very slight short somewhere.
2) I checked switch stack 1 and 8, and confirmed that the switches that are supposed to be NC, are.
3) I manually played a 4 player game with the playfield up, scored some points on each player, then manually hit the bonus and outhole relay, and was able to step through a 5 ball 4 player game to game over, and everything worked and the outhole solenoid fired as expected between balls.
I just can't figure out why the switch doesn't seem to start the sequence as it is supposed to.
Any ideas what to check next? Thanks!
