I have a question: I have one of those alltek boards on an EBD LE. It is currently set to 5 ball and I want to change it to 3 ball. Having looked at settings in the manual, it says to change the 31 and32 switch to off. I have done this several times, but it never actually accepts the changes. It just stays on 5 ball. Any suggestions?

Quoted from BJM-Maxx:

Did you power cycle the game? It only reads the dip switches on start up.

Yes i did. Would there be a malfunction on the board that would cause the board not to be reading changes to settings?

Quoted from phillyfan64:

I had an instance with my Mata Hari where the Alltek board didn't recognize the dip switch change. I was advised by Quench to flip the dip switch back and forth several times to "clean" the dip switch. Then, after a power cycle the game recognized the change. In my case it was an older Alltek board but if the memory clear doesn't work, try the switch flipping trick.

You did this with the power off or on?

SO i did the memory clear, but now if i change the switch to try to set it to freeplay, the game doesn't launch into EBD. If i set the switches to EBD, it does come on, but now when i try to start a game, the callout don't occur and a ball doesn't launch in the shooter lane.

Maybe a fuse went when i swapped it?

Quoted from phillyfan64:

Confused here. If you set it to coin op, does it show credits? If you set it to free play did you turn off the credit display as described in the Alltek manual?

So I did the memory clear, and if it set it to free play and turn off credit display the way it recommends in the manual, the game doesn’t restart into EBD, it gets stuck and never fully restarts.

If I set the games selection just to EBD, the game feature switched does seem to be doing anything. It also now doesn’t seem to fire the ball into the shooter lane. Also, if I for the ball into play, there are no sounds and when the ball drains, the game resets. I have reserved audio and they seem to work in test. Not sure how to test the shooter lane coil.

Quoted from phillyfan64:

Sorry I’m not really sure what’s going on. Hopefully one of our Bally experts will chime in. If you haven’t already you should post the issue in the early solid state tech forum. You can also try sending an email to Alltek. The guy is very responsive to any issues.

Thank you. I was unaware of both of these options. Thank you for sharing them.
