My CV works OK but I noticed that some switches are registering 2 switches at the sametime in the Matrix.

It causes trouble ejecting balls from the trough when I lock ball 2 in Highwire multiball.

What can cause that? I did a full playfield swap and maybe I solder back something wrong?

Left Ramp is registering « ramp made(45) » but also « trough middle(47) »

Right ramp is registering « ramp made(65) » but also « ramp lock middle(67) »

Second switch of highwire MB is registering the samething has right ramp.

Thanks in advance

Quoted from ElectricLou:

Most likely yes. Especially if you did not have this issue before. Go back over your switch wiring very carefully making sure that you compare the wire colors to the corresponding switch (use the switch matrix table for the wire colors) . Also check the plugs at the Trough and the Opto board.

Perhaps you put a diode on backwards or shorted a diode. Are any other switches closed when this happens?

Check diodes at 35-37, 45-47, and 65-67.
