When it rains it pours. After abra cadabra going south yesterday. I go to play flight today and it’s got issues out of nowhere.

All coils will fire in test, but the ball kickout coil can’t get a ball into the lane. I’ve tested all the trough switches. When a game starts, coil fires and then a few random points are awarded, then the game ends. I can’t find anything touching unde the playfield that shouldn’t. Spent 3 hours looking through it to no change. Ideas?

Don’t think it’s the trough. Found switch 15 locked on Broken cap. Resoldered cap. No reboot. 6 beeps. 43v fuse blown. ‘Midnight here and no fuses to swap in.

Replaced the fuse. Bottom thumper reported switch problem. Replaced diode on that. No more switch registration issues.
Ball still not kicking out properly.reinspected area, bent and warped spring. Replaced. Balls kick out and all is well.

Glad to hear you got it running. I was having a prob with the 3rd ball registering. Stayed in search mode looking for it. Simple adjustment to the contact for me luckily. Love flight 2000.
