I'm going to pin a gogo for the first time and have cash in hand and hopefully will be able to bring home a nice f14. Does anyone know someone wanting to sell one?

I picked up an F-14 tomcat recently. I actually traded a problematic LW3 for it. The tomcat worked completely, it did need some love just like they'll do but overall it was in good shape and even came with a brand-new set of plastics not put on yet. Since I got it a couple weeks ago I put on LEDs in the playfield and in the back box, rebuilt the flippers, shopped it out and also added a powered 8" sub woofer. Such an underrated system 11.

My trough switches stopped working so games won't start anymore. I've checked the switches in diagnostic mode and they aren't registering. All the coils are firing fine. I've traced and checked continuity on switches as well. The lower part of my display is out so I can't see the 3rd and fourth player on the there so I am at a disadvantage. I've seen this problem posted before but never saw what they found out. Has anyone encountered the trough switches not working all of a sudden? And what was your solution.
Thank you in advance.

The whole row isn't working at this point. The right flipper still flips though.

#2197 2 years ago

I've never manually tested switches before, but if for some reason they don't work at that point we know it's Q49 that is not working ? To test the switch manually do you just touch it to the pin and the ground with the connector off?

That would make sense about the right flipper EOS. So the right flipper EOS just controls the lighting when you press the flipper while you're waiting to shoot the ball, or entering initials if I understand what you're saying.

I disconnected cables and made a jumper to connect the green/reds to the various ones on J10. I am getting the same results as before. Since Q49 comes next is that the direction I should go?

Has anyone had this happen where all the eject solenoid keep firing like they are looking for a ball but all the balls are in the trough? mine just started doing this.
Thank you in advance for any help you could send me.

#2222 2 years ago

Thank you, Aerobert. I will check that out. So there's probably just a switch stuck that thinks the balls have not returned?

#2224 2 years ago

So the switch test will let me know if there is a stuck switch triggering those coils? I also will check the connector on the board, if a wire was broken though they wouldn't be triggering in the first place. I thank you again for steering me in the right direction.

I agree if the play field looks good and has no acid or crazy hacks on the board I would go with it.
