Firepower on free play, won't start a game. In switch test I can hit each trough switch and register. Same for tilt and playfield slam tilt. Start button also.

Any ideas?

Remove all the balls, go to switch test and see if there are any closed switches. Then slowly put in the balls and verify machine sees each switch is closed by the ball

Did that. Nothing stuck on, trough works as expected.

Did you verify it’s on free play? Drop a few quarters or simulate coin drops and then try.

Does the switch test show the start button being pushed?

Yes, 18 is 00. It was working before for years, just recently stopped. I tried coining up, nothing. Start button works in test.

Ok. I’m stumped. Someone else needs to chime in.

Verify the switches register with balls, not you manually doing it with your hand. Verify all three are engaged in switch test with All 3 balls.

The coils work normally?
Checa que todas las bobinas funcionen, igual con los transistores
