So I just recently purchased my first pin. I've had it for a few days and I haven't experienced any issues with it until now. I noticed a few lamps were out so I lifted the playfield to get a closer look. I also unplugged and re-plugged a few connectors that appeared to be somewhat loose, I then lower the playfield back into its correct position. Now here is my issue. When I start a game everything works fine until a coil/solenoid is activated, then the game locks/freezes. All power to the playfield is lost and I have to turn the machine off. I ran the coil diagnostic test and a they all operated correctly. I am completely stumped on on why the game is locking/freezing when a coil is activated when a ball is in play. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
