    Sometimes it locks 2 balls, sometimes 3, 4.
    It's set on ex. Easy mode.
    Sometimes it releases 2 balls and is not in multi ball mode.
    I imagine it's a ghost that only a pro could track down.

    I did just get over 5 million.
    What a cool light show!

    Do a switch test.

    Hold a switch long enough, say 15 seconds and watch the display. Only the one switch that you are holding should show up. If there is a problem there maybe 2 or 3 switches popping up on the display. Note all errors and let us know.

    Went through all the switches.
    Everything worked.
    No doubles.
    Couple flashes are not working, but I don't see how that can be related.

    When you checked the ball lock switches, did you use a ball or your finger?

    Use ball

    The ball makes no difference.
    I tried.
    I think this is a case of operator error. I assumed that all balls would lock on ex. Easy when you light up Tom cat.
    Seems like it locks 2 then you need to light up tom cat again and lock another, then release.

    What are the changes in difficulty levels?

    In regular setup thats how it goes, after you get multiball once then it locks one ball at a time.
