My centar suddenly beacame weak. The light (both gi and insert) is not as strong as before and the most noticeable is that the kickout for multiball does not kick with enough power. Seems like bumpers have good pwr also the flippers feels ok.
A few times the game has "lit up" while playing, and also made the kickout work as it should..
but thats only for a short time of play before it went back to the weak behavior.
Any suggestion?

Check your voltages on the rectifier.

Find any relays in the path of the power like any Game Over or Tilt relay. See if they are dirty or arcing. You can also try a jumper to bypass them to see it that makes a difference. If it does then they may need to be cleaned or replaced.

Also try cleaning and reseating the connector where that supply comes off the power board.
