I was just playing a few games and the bottom right flipper and two top flippers are out. Everything else on that node board work. All three went out at the same time. What seems weird is a few times the flippers seemed weak or once it was unresponsive, not long after they do not work in coil test or game mode. Bottom left flipper still works which is also on node board 8.

I did add a shaker motor to the game. I played about 20 games with out the shaker, installed the shaker and have about 6 more games on it since then and now I have a game playing with one flipper.

Any help is greatly appreciated, Come Monday I'll give Stern a call but maybe someone here has dealt with this before.

Check all of the wiring harness plugs. This happened on a friend's AC/DC & it was just a plug that came undone.
Simple things first!

I double checked the connectors on the node board related to the flipper, but should check the rest of the connectors on the game as well. Any where else to double check on the system? Do you happen to know what connectors he encountered the issues with?

Thanks

I already had the 8 driver node board replaced on my pro a few weeks ago. Another person just had a left flipper fail (see thread). Is the node board too close to the flippers and failing due to vibration?

Just read through. I hate to say it but I bet I'm stuck until I get a new node board. I don't think it's too close to the flippers, it's all pre drilled so I assume there isn't much variance as to where it would be mounted. When I flip the left flipper with my hand on the node board there isn't a ton of vibration there.

The plug I found on his game was in the wiring harness, way in the back of the cabinet.

Cool, I'm gonna try and comb the whole thing tonight.

Check to make sure the wire made it INTO the connector!
When I pulled KissLE out of the box everything was good, next morning switch was not reading.
Long story short, it took me WAY to long to find out the wire had fallen out of the conector...

I had a loose wire on one of the lugs I had to resolder. It worked intermittently.

Yea all set. Some of the molex connectors were damaged when assemble. Repinned a few wires and all set.
