    So I am working on a Powerplay 1970's Pinball machine. Replaced with all new boards from alltech. MPU, Light and solenoid. I know I have one bad solenoid from testing. For some reason I can't get the game going. I am pretty sure I have it set for free play. Bumpers test ok. Flippers never work. After boot up it almost seems as if. the game never starts. I tried taking it out of free play too and using the coin. I also pulled the two wires for the silver start button and tried touching them together. Any thoughts were I go from here would be appreciated to get this going. Pics attached.

    Try moving the mounting screw on the lower right corner of the mpu to the lower left side of the mpu so that it is grounded properly.

    When you start up the game, how many flashes on the green light on the mpu are you getting?

    Have you checked the connector on the mpu where the credit button wires would be?

    After properly connecting your boards to ground via the screws, take the ball out and then run a switch test. You should have zero switches closed.

    Report back. I’m away from my BOPP but can help.
