Quick question, on the Night Moves cocktail pin, (has multi-ball fyi), there are two kickout holes, (left and right), on the unit I have the right kickout will receive and kick back a ball no issues. The Left unit, will catch, and register (switch works), but will NOT kick the ball back out. It looks like the solenoid is not working, however ohming fine and diode tests good. What is controlling that solenoid to fire, is that the driver board, or are the kickouts handled by the Kickout driver board? I can't see where exactly these holes are controlled through.

Thanks, transistor on the main driver board? Or the smaller secondary transistor board, A16? http://www.marcospecialties.com//images/products/MA-940/detail.JPG

To be honest i have never worked on one, but know it has gottlieb boards and thats what would drive them, if you dont have a manual you could always follow the wires to where the board then follow the trace to the transistor then test it, some people on this site have a pdf of the manual if you do a search on here or google.

Manual says it's these. How do I test?

I usually just test it with digital multimeter set to ohms and check it against a known working one (if the readings are similar it should be good) the screws are where it gets ground so try tightening them first. I had one that wasnt working and thats all it was, the screws were not tight. You can check that by setting meter to ohms and put one probe on base of transistor the the other on the board trace that is ground.
