I'm having an opto problem that I'm hoping someone can help with. I moved my Getaway from the garage to the house and now the optos are not working. I get an error that says that I need to check Opto1, Opto 2, Opto 3...basically all of the optos. I checked the opto board and see that none of the LED lights are on. Should they be? Any ideas on what to try next? As a side note, some of my GI is out now, too. A seemingly random string of GI lights, e.g. top left sling, bottom right sling, bottom pop bumper. Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes,the lights on the Opto boards must be on.
Check the connectors first-reseat these on the opto boards and these on the Power Driver board.
Check the fuses on Power Driver Board too.
Measure +12v on test point at Power Driver Board.

I wanted to make an update, I was able to fix the opto issue. When I put the head down to move the machine, it pulled on some wires, causing one of the wires on the main power board to pop out of the connector. I pushed it back down with a small screwdriver and was able to get power back to those boards which took care of the problem. Thanks for giving me a place to start.
