Correct

Great thread for SW DE. Picked up one myself along with a High speed not too long ago. Stripped the play field, new plastics, LEDs, had the ramp rewelded, fixed a few cooked molex connectors. Overall not in bad shape. Still need a better trans light but not too excited to pay $100. Also needs new coils as I cannot shoot the ramp with the right flipper.

Did run into one problem and I wanted to see if you guys have any thoughts.

Having trouble with the Star Wars letters and 3CPO mouth light. In demo mode the Star Wars letters light appropriately going back and forth but when playing the R always stays lit after I light a letter (see pic). Pulled the PCB were the lights are at, looks great, all the tracts intact, tried new bulbs, new sockets and no luck, even took the old wires out and re did them with new molex connector. Still the mouth won't light and R stays lit. Not sure next step but maybe something with the back box board where they connect? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You might check the lamp board and connector right below the Star Wars & mouth. Sounds like something is wired wrong there

The lamp board looks in great shape, tracts etc. I compared the wiring to another thread with pictures and mine looks exactly like that (i.e colored wires match up on the molex). I even refitted the wires in a new connector to see if that would help. Makes me think it is somewhere down the line.

Did you check the diodes on the lamp pcb?

Have not done this. Will take a look. Would that explain both problems?

what happens when you go into diagnostics and light each lamp individually?

Thought of pulling my translite to change to the mirrored back glass from classic playfeild but only have only so much stupid money to blow and have a few games that could use a playfeild so its going to have to wait. https://classicplayfields.com/shop/pinball-backglasses/starwars/

So in diagnostics the mouth lights up appropriately. The letters switch back and forth appropriately but unfortunately when playing the R is still dimly lit. Interestingly one of the 10 million arrows also is dimly lit. Maybe something to do with the LEDs?

Sounds like a ghosting LED. Try putting a regular incandescent bulb in that spot and see if it stops. Then you can order some non-ghosting LED's and that should do the trick.
