I have an original Medieval Madness that is beautiful and plays awesome, but there is one issue that is driving me crazy.

Every time I power on the game it will kick 1 ball into the shooter lane and launch it. Once the ball drains the game is good to go. Everything else works perfect. Anyone have any ideas why it does this and how to fix?

First thing to do if it hasn't been done already is resolder all the optos on the Ball Trough.
Pay attention the the Wiring at the same time
Then I would change C1 the 100 uf 35 volt cap on the 10 channel Opto Board

Thx, I will check the opto boards and wiring.
