    I have several issues with my bop machine and time to investigate them now. Hopefully you can help!

    1- Heart shot/Unlimited millions will not advance to 100k/500k/million. I have tested switches 77 and 41 with no issues identified. Both switches make a wooshing sound when the ball goes through them. the first gate for 1000 pts and the second gate (41) 5000 pts. I have been told 41 should make a heartbeat sound to advance the multiplier.

    2 - The control gate switch 4 will not close. if it doesn't close then the ball never goes into the face/head. I have run the test and nothing comes up as an issue.

    3 - Each time I turn the machine off, it goes to factory reset. I have replaced the three batteries in the head unit and it continues to factory reset.

    Thank you for help

    the heart shot/unlimited millions has never worked correctly since I purchased the machine

    The factory reset is probably a corroded battery holder. If that is what it is, I recommend you cut the holder off the board and replace it with a remote battery holder or if you can de-solder the memory chip, then a NVRAM. How much corrosion is on the board? How does the solder mask look under the battery holder?

    What does the controlled gate, Solenoid 4 (you said switch 4) do when you test it? Can you hear it operate? Can you visually see it move? When down, can a ball get past it?

    I didn't see any corrosion on the battery holder when I changed them. I will check again.

    When I did the solenoid test on 4, the wire underneath attempted to move but the gate remains up. the metal gate does not come down so it allows the ball to go to the mini playfield every time. the metal gate is supposed to come down to block the ball from the mini playfield and allow the ball into the face. it previously worked correctly

    The gate attempts to move but it seems to be stuck in the up position

    i tried to move it with a screwdriver from the mini playfield. I have not taken it apart to get to the gate. its under plexiglass.

    Then you have to take things apart so you can see why the gate isn't working correctly. Could be a screw came loose or something else jammed it.

    ok

    The plexiglass is held on with 4 screws. Remove it.
