Hi folks I am looking for the switch matrix for my Bally special force. I have the electronic manual but it does not show it. I'm having trouble with the rocket E target and the to rollover switches in the capture ball. Hope someone has a good photo. Thank you....

Hi. I posted some photos in this thread. One is pretty clear of the switch matrix. Not the first photo -- just scroll down a bit. Good luck.

Hi Nokoro great photo thanks. Im chasing a rocket E switch issue that does not work correctly and when i look 2 balls in the Bonus multiplayer is giving continuous points. And other weird stuff.

Could be the caps. Having a malfunctioning or missing cap can cause weird issues like awarding random points or targets not registering all the time. Also the switches might be gapped too close and fire randomly from the vibration caused by other things in the game. I would check those things first as they are common issues. If that isn't it, please describe the problem more specifically. There are a lot of switch matrix experts on pinside. As you can see from the other thread, I'm not one of them, but I'm learning.

Oh, and if closing two switches makes another switch fire, it could be a bad diode. Terry who chimed in in my other thread has a great video about chasing down a bad diode.

Awesome Nokoro Im going to pull the machine out of my line up so I can work on it tomorrow. I do no that its not the gaps creating the problem. I will report this issue back once I did into it more. Its the weekend time for outdoor fun lol or if it rains indoor hair pulling out!!!! lol
