Hi all,

The relay on the solenoid board of my Elktra keeps buzzing.

I have tried two different solenoid boards keeps happening so it doesn't come from there.

I have tried to put an Alltek MPU board in my machine and then the problem disappeared.

Things is, my Elekra has been fully refurbished and is all original and I would like to keep it that way.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Not really sure what you are asking... did you solve the problem of the buzzing?

No, it is still buzzing... I assume it comes from the MPU but all the joint on it look good... what could be the problem?

So the buzz is definitely coming from the back box area? If you unplug everything(except the power board) and turn on the machine, does it still buzz?

The buzz come from the relay on the solenoid board. I had to change the relay itself one time because it made it melt.

So does it stop buzzing when the game is in attract and the relay is supposed to be off and deactivates the flippers?

Swap U10 and 11 on the MPU
