Just got a Roadshow and is restarting on me. I bought a board off of Kahr and it stills restarts. Light is showing green. I have narrowed it down to the blast zone targets and shaker motor. It will not restart during multi ball or when both flippers are pushed. It will only happen when the blast zone area lights up and you hit anyone of the blast zone targets. The thing is that it only happens when the game is a little warm and only when those targets are hit. It will not restart when the shaker motor goes off any other time. Just with targets and that is only when game is started for a little while but lately as soon as the starts and they are hit when lite. Trying to figure this out. I thought it might be a diode. If I am measuring right, two of them are getting .777 to .999 and one is getting 4.5. I am confused on this because I thought the ones with .777 were bad and changed them and the new ones change and give the same reading. I am very confused on this. Any help would be great. Thanks! T

The first thing to learn in pinball diagnosis is isolating the problem. Disconnect the blast zone targets and see if the problem goes away. If not disconnect the lights and see if anything changes.

If you disconnect the lights and everything plays fine, look for a socket that's touching metal or other issue in that area. Try the same with the targets and shaker.

Quoted from PinballT:

It sounds like a switch diode or connection since it only happens when you hit those switches, I would rule out the lights since it doesn't reset in attract mode. What does it do when you go into switch edge test and hit the switches?

I just took out lights and then disconnected targets. Same thing when lights were out and targets hooked up. Switch mode just showed that they were active when hit. I turned the shaker motor to off and hit targets and no reset. I put the shaker motor on soft and the same thing... hitting the blaster zone targets caused reset. It actually happens every time now that it is hit when lit for shaker motor. So I am down to the shaker motor and these targets. Again it does not happen anywhere else with shaker motor. Just the 3 blaster zone targets. Very confused.

My road show just started resetting this weekend. Haven't looked in to it yet.

check the wires at the shaker.Ive heard of a few getting worn and shorting out.

Would that happen when the shaker is activated at all times or is there certain wiring for that type of activation? Will check. Thanks!

Didn't happen to me personally but its an easy start.
Shaker does go when you hit the blast zone

I think the issue might be with the flashers going on at the same time with the shaker motor. I wonder what area or areas on the board that covers that power??? I wonder if it is the daughter board or the PDB? Need to narrow where those wires feed into to get power. Somehow a transistor or bridge rectifier must be bad. Thoughts??? Thanks! T.

Resurrecting this thread. My roadshow is doing the same thing. Only resets when blast zone is hit and shaker motor goes off. With the shaker disabled no reset. Did you ever find a solution?
