Appreciate any guidance on getting this gremlin fixed. After complete refurbishment, removed and replaced all components on play-field for restore have one little problem can’t figure out.
The treasure chamber kick out isn’t working. Using the test mod the #3 solenoid pulls in (treasure chamber saucer), engaging the switch will make sound and add points, have Alltech Systems MPU board, recently refurbished solenoid driver board. All other solenoids work properly.
Any clues on what to look for.
My givens are solenoid is working per test, switch is working from sound and scoring – what am I missing, some weird MPU problem?
FYI want to sell this and move onto next project – seeking – Bally - multi ball - wide body.

So the coil pulls in self test but does not kick during gameplay even though points are scored? Sounds like the game is thinking a different switch. With the ball in the saucer and all the targets up put the game in switch test mode and check the number. It should be #31. If not check your wires to the saucer switch. The schematic says they should be 65 and 53.

This one got resolved in the original thread under EM (by mistake). Wires were crossed and the Advance Bonus button was actually triggering the treasure chamber award and kickout. He rewired the connector and all was good.
