I have a good player's machine with an issue I can't figure out. Wonder if anyone can help. My GI and red lights on the back wall sometimes come in fully but are generally always at a low flicker (can't play with room lights off). My lights at the scoop come in and out. Wires look fine. Is there perhaps a poorly seated plug somewhere to explain this? I've looked all over and can't figure it out. Have not gotten out the multimeter...

It's happened on mine too. Reseat the plugs on the board under the playfield in front of the drops. For some reason they run the GI power thru it (Might be what controls the dimming).

Thanks! Would not have figured that out on my own...

Problem solved! Thanks! I wish I'd sorted this out months ago!
