I was working on my drop targets today and inadvertently connected the power incorrectly to the coil (rookie mistake with diode). When I tried the table only my flippers fire…sounds and lights work but the other solenoids aren’t firing.

I tried another set of main driver boards I had and the same issue occurs.

Could this be the solenoid fuse? Would the flippers still work though??

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated…

Thank you

I found I blew my F5 fuse…so it has mostly come back to life.

The diagnostic shows a stuck switch on 19 which is the O in GOR…..and that drop bank is not resetting….

I ruled out the boards by swapping in my original playfield…That one works…

Upon closer inspection I notice the wire on the leaf switch was snipped.

Does anyone know what this leaf switch should be attached to? Can I attach to the green/orange wire on my drop target?

This should help, looks like it goes to the outside pad on the R target.

This machine has Old School Bob’s improved drop targets installed. Assuming they were installed correctly and working before the flipper issues, I don’t think the green wire is an issue.

That switch would have nothing to do with flippers.

Thanks Billc479 the solenoids are firing now for the most part. I had blown the F5 fuse. Thankfully that is all it was.

That leaf switch (I believe) is used in some part with the drop targets since it sits inside that assembly in the surface. I'm wondering if it being disconnected is affecting that bank of drops from resetting....

No it won’t have any effect. You need to make sure it’s wired correctly and the drop targets are making contact on the board. And make sure the boards aren’t dirty. I am only familiar with the old style boards and not the updated ones. But sounds like it’s not wired correctly. Or also a defective board. Has to be one of those things.
