    Did it work before you moved it? If you're lucky the jones plugs and sockets between the alley and the backbox just need to be cleaned.

    It seems unlikely that 4 switches stopped working together. More likely something in common to the switches may not be working. How did you narrow in on the M, N, O and P switches? And do you mean switches or rollovers? The N and O rollovers for example activate at least two switches each.

    If the problem is that you can't score strikes, it would be helpful to see the circuit for the Strike relay coil.

    Looking at your schematic the M-P rollover switches all rely on the brown wire drawn across the lower part of the schematic. The brown wire in turn relies on a switch on the 1 Pin relay being closed because the 1 Pin relay has tripped. And the 1 Pin relay should trip if either the A or B rollover switch closes.

    It would help to understand which of the switches on the brown wire are working and which aren't so try the following tests. Reset the pins before each test so the tests don't interfere with each other. For each test start by closing the A or B rollover switch. You should hear the 1 Pin relay trip, and you should be able to see that is has tripped by looking in the back. Once the 1 Pin relay is tripped each of the switches (working from left to right along the brown wire in the schematic) should behave as described here:

    - closing the O rollover switches should trip the 2 Pin, 4 Pin and 6 Pin relays
    - closing the N rollover switches should trip the 4 Pin, 6 Pin and 3 Pin relays
    - closing the G rollover switches should trip the 7 Pin relay
    - closing the W rollover switch should only trip the 7 Pin if the 2 Pin relay has not already been tripped
    - closing the P rollover switch should only trip the 7 Pin relay if the Strike Zone Control adjustment is set to A/Easy Strike
    - closing the M rollover switch should only trip the 10 Pin relay if the Strike Zone Control adjustment is set to A/Easy Strike
    - closing the T rollover switch should only trip the 10 Pin relay if the 3 Pin relay has not already been tripped
    - closing the H rollover switch should trip the 10 Pin relay

    So are just the M-P switches not doing what is described above, or are other switches misbehaving too?
