Need some help, trough 2 and 3 are stuck on. Tried to adjust the sensors but they didn't have any effect. The switches randomly switch on and off in switch test mode without me touching anything. So anytime there are 3 balls in the trough, it spits them all out into the shooter lane. I'm out of ideas, game is unplayable until I get this fixed. Appreciate the help.

Quoted from GnarLee:

I know you said you tried to adjust them but did you try to clean them with some alcohol and a q-tip. I had some issues with an opto and as soon as I cleaned it all the problems went away. Sounds like its getting a weak signal (dirty)

Thanks for the idea, I checked the opto board, everything was plugged in tight and messing with the connections didn't change anything. I did however start pushing on each of the optos individually and found that the opto for ball 2 would trigger the switch on and off. I basically pushed it into the board to try and make a better connection and this seemed to have done the trick. I played over a dozen games and didn't have anymore issues. I'll try the rubbing alcohol, what you said makes sense. Maybe it got really dirty, hopefully that's all it is. It's nice to play again without all 5 balls being on the playfield at all times haha.

Quoted from heni1977:

I would get a hold of JJP. Sound's like a bad solder joint. It could possibly be a dirty opto but would not put too much stock in that. Since you pushed it into board and now it works, would suggest soldering issue.

Roger that, I'll see what they say.
