Quoted from LanceCT:
Thank you for the advice
I checked the fuse and it doesn't appear to be the problem, that would have been an easy fix
So I printed out the manual and ran the solenoid test but I don't understand where to find the results, it went through a bunch of things and went it got to the kickback nothing happened, am I supposed to do something else at that point
thank you for the link to the manual and I am blown away at all the different tweaks I could make to the game
What am I missing with the solenoid test
The Coil test triggers the solenoid at the board level and bypasses any physical switches.
You should hear each solenoid fire as it cycles through all the solenoids. There are flashers on the test too, you will SEE them light. The Kicker is #14. If the solenoid is not firing when the test gets to the Kicker then there is a problem with wiring to the Solenoid, or a transistor that controls the solenoid.
Coil and solenoid are the same thing.
Since you said it did nothing when it got to the kicker test #14 there are a few more things you can check.
This coil has a relay in the circuit. See picture. With the game turned on there should be about 65 Volts DC at the coil. The coil is under the apron but you can get at the coil wire under the playfield. If you have a Volt Meter measure the voltage at the relay terminal blue wire. see picture.
