Hey friends! I was in the LW3 club, then had to leave as a nice Getaway came my way. However I love the game and I was happy to find a project LW3 to try and get working 100%. I'll describe current state, hopefully some of you fine folks can help me along my journey. I'm excited to get this game playing
Game boots to attract mode. Thanks cabuford
It will start a game - back in action!
Sound is bright and clear
DMD bright and clear
All switches seem to work as they should
Most coils work
Plunger coil doesn't fire
Flippers don't work
#2 hole VUK coil doesn't fire
When I start a game and hit the flipper buttons, the LEDs flicker on the flipper board under the playfield. However something interesting I noticed when I hit the flipper buttons, was that the fuses closest to the front of the cabinet glowed as I hit the button(corresponding to whichever flipper button I hit). Does this point to a particular problem area?
As far as the other coils not firing, seems like there are no loose wires etc going to those coils.
For what it's worth, the 5v and blanking LEDs on the CPU are solid lit as the repair manual says they should be.
