Stern Stars boots up good, chimes work, during attract mode, displays high score to date on displays, lights in head work in attract mode, BUT only limited inserts are lighting up (both double, triple) that is it.

when I start a game it starts like normal (minus issues listed above) chimes are working, score is going up, then if I hit random things, chime goes crazy (score does not go up for some hits, but chime plays), sometimes match light, player 2, 3 (in head) lights up, extra ball light turns on (playfield), credits are added magically and then game resets...

after testing for a bit, it all appears to be random things that set it to go crazy...

I unplugged all cables (one at a time) in head and re plugged them... other then that where to I start? it does not appear to be a bad connector...
