I picked up this absolute basket case of a Flight 2000 and I’m trying to work through some mechanical issues. I want to see if I can get it running to decide if I want to keep it or sell it to someone as a project. I’ve never played it before so I thought that would be a good place to start.

Boards look good. Someone actually installed a remote battery pack at some point.

I have two main issues.

1. The flippers work but no other coils will work. Their respective switches score points, but the coils don’t fire. The coil fuse (F-4) tests fine.

2. The two coin door buttons don’t work so I can even try to get into any type of test menus. Pressing them does nothing.

There's a fuse on the playfield for all the coils that aren't flippers. https://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=887&picno=49156&zoom=1

Make sure the cabinet switch connecter is well connected (lower right of MPU)

That was it! The coils pretty much work now. I didn’t have a 1.25A so I used a 1A. Haven’t messed with the coin door switches yet.

Now my issue is that the switch matrix is complete hosed. The left slingshot resets the drops and the right slingshot drops one of the drops. Spinner seem to end the game and it’s doing all sorts of other random stuff.

It played almost normal for 1 ball and then went bananas. Keep in mind this was sitting in someone’s basement for who knows how long broken.

Not sure where to start. The boards look really good though.
