My game was working fine until i lifted the playfield and replaced some lights with LED's. Now only 2 solenoids will fire. One in the back of the playfield, and the laser kick outlane.

What I have troubleshooted so far:

1- The 2 solenoids that do work share a common colored wire - purple. They show 70 volts on meter.
2 - the other solenoids , a few share a red power wire and a few share a brown wire.

The ones that are not working are only showing 1-4 volts each. So I figure thats my problem, as the power side should be 70 volts all the time, just like the 2 that are working.

I have spent a lot of time looking over where I installed the lights to make sure I haven't cut a wire or crossed something.

What Could I do next to further troubleshoot why I have no power going to these?

I assume you have checked all the fuses ?
