Quick question about the diagnostics/self test....When you go to the lamp flashing test, do the skill shot (Gorgon) lamps flash in sequence with the other lamps? Mine are not flashing at all in self test and are not working in normal game play either (except the lower one). Trying to debug this.

Yes, those are feature lamps which are all switched on and off during lamp test mode.
Are the 20 rear playfield panel lamps all flashing? these plus the Gorgon lamps are driven by the auxiliary lamp driver board.

Yes, the rear panel lamps are flashing but not the skill shot ones. I did a playfield swap so I must have a wiring issue on these. Thank you.

Issue must be with the braid wire (that carries 6 volts DC) to the base of those Gorgon lamp sockets.

Turn game on today and left flippers are down. Have continuity back to the Alltek Solenoid Board and to PS board. All wires intact. Looking for next thing(s) to look for.

By know means am I proficient in electronics so if you can dummy it down for me I cam go from there. Thnx

Check EOS switch on bottom flippers.

Check EOS switch on bottom flippers.

I did visually check them and they appear to be good. Gapped properly, wires intact.

Test:
1) in game play mode if you press left flipper button.
aq) does left flipper activate?
a1) yes.
a2) no.
if No, then
b) manually raise bottom flipper in up position.
bq) does flipper stay activate in up position?
b1) yes.
b2) no.
if yes, then EOS is possible problem or associated coil windings.
if no, then coil has continuity problems, check pcb relay circuit...etc.

So I get to this point and the flipper did stay up but then I released the flipper button and it returned to the down position. Upon pressing the flipper but again it worked. So now the flipper is working.

Great that it now works but this is not normal???
