    Ok guys, Going to need some help with this one.

    Got my first solid state game. Was told everything works great blah blah, and it seemed to play fine when I bought it (never thought to check error codes). Got it home, played a few rounds. Cool everything is working. Opened the coin door to check the testing and sure as **** got the following errors: Switch 45 Right Jam, Switch 46 right popper, Spin motor wires reversed, spin wheel motor bad. The spin motor seems to rotate left and right correctly. I ran a spin motor test and it lands on the correct one it should after calibration. When I rotate it counter-clock wise it reads the correct rotation. When I rotate it clockwise it seems to be incorrect. Bad opto board? Trying cleaning it? This thing is super dusty. I mean its got crap everywhere. I feel I should trying air compressing the crap out of it being dust can block the opto switches correct?

    Dust most certainly can mess up opto switches. While I would blow the machine out, I'd also take a q-tip with iso alcohol on it and clean the optos.

    So funny story, the wires for the spin motor were backwards? I reversed them and error gone! One down 2 to go.

    I was also getting a left spinner error, when to the underside and it was unplugged? Another issue fixed! Man im digging the easy ones
