Linked Games

#1 4 months ago

Purchased brand new just a couple months ago, and I'm getting weird random lighting every now and then. Most of the time, everything is fine. But now and then, seemingly at random times, the normal lighting sequence is replaced with strange lighting and colors that makes no sense. Even the BK toy is affected--his eyes will suddenly be a different color, like bright blue or green, or maybe he'll have just one eye lit red! Meanwhile, some of the lights that should be working are unlit (for example, the war lane indicators). While this is happening, the game play and scoring seems to continue normally, although sometimes you can't tell which shots to target during mode play. This goes on for maybe a minute, then suddenly all the lights return to working normally again.

I have reloaded fresh code a couple times, no help. No tech alerts are triggered.

I play this game a lot, and know exactly what lighting to expect. This weirdness just started in the last week. Any idea what is going on here?

Never mind--I was advised to unplug and reconnect the connectors to the node boards under the playfield. The problem is now gone.

Thank you for the update!

This appears to be a common problem/fix with spike 2 games.
