Hello !

The past two days, I have noticed my IM ends some games while a ball still on playfield. Today when I drained a ball, the game did not recognize that and start to look for the ball, restarted but still the same.

It can be the a switch, I tried to go through diagnose but didn't find any option to check the those switches.

Sometime the game gives me two balls on one game, not really sure if it's something related.

Any advice ?

Thanks !

Definitely sounds like a switch in your ball trough.

The two opto boards at the end of the ball trough. Remove them. Then reflow the solder on the optos and the pins the connector plugs onto.

Put the boards back in your game. And you should be good to go.
