The game loads 2 to 4 balls (it prefers 3) for each turn and won't stop unless 2 balls are removed then it plays normal (4 balls in a 6 ball game tho). I appreciate any help you can give. Thank you!

Sounds like a ball trough opto issue.

Have you done a switch test to see how many balls are recognized in the trough? You should do this with all the balls in and 0 balls in. Also check the shooter lane switch with a ball and without a ball.

The issue is usually the connectors, there is one on each side of the trough that powers the optos and returns the signal. Disconnect them and reseat.

That's awesome, thank you! I'm new at this and it might take a bit. I'll let you know how it goes! THANK YOU!!!!

I had the same issue. Stern sent me a new set of opto boards. You can play with connectors and it may help but the issue may return. That is what happened with mine.

The opto board was loose with one screw missing, also did the tests with and without, the locate feature plus adding them back must have helped because the multi ball launch is gone and I'm at single ball with no issues. I'm actually playing Batman... Thank you so much to both of you!!! All the best, Michael

figure out enough of these issues and you're going to be forced to change your username.
