Hey everyone,

Just bought a nice players Stars. Worked great, tore it apart and cleaned it up. Put resistors on all sockets for LEDs, rebuilt flippers and pop, then put back together.

Game boots fine starts a game. Then after that, no switches register.

Coil test all coils work.

When I do lamp test there are a handful that still flash so I guess I need to look at the resistors on those.

I’m thinking I messed something up with these resistors.

Where should I start the troubleshooting?
