I had something like this on my Mata Hari. Check for Voltage at the fuse. That factory fuse holder is janky as heck. On Mata Hari the power went from a flipper coil to that fuse. I had flipper power, but no playfield solenoids. My problem was the connection of that wire that went from flipper coil to the under playfield fuse holder.

Edit, did you say you have something wrong with your flippers too? It looks like power goes from the Left Flipper to Right Flipper To the Playfield Fuse. Look at the Switch Matrix Page in the Schematics. That fuse and the power to the solenoids is the top item in the middle of the page.

Quoted from zacaj:

As long as any wire that goes to one of the lugs, and then leaves it to go somewhere else, is attached together, then you're fine

So do you have left flippers? If so the problem is between the Left and Right Flippers, probably the wire between them.

Awesome! Right now a guy is totally belong me out with some ROMs. Feels good to pay some of the karma back to the community. Like I said, I had the same thing a few weeks ago.

Good luck with Paragon! It is an awesome pin and was my first machine I ever owned.

That wire is the power. It connects to the fuse under the playfield and then the playfield solenoids. That's why the knocker worked. It wasn't in the playfield. You should check out the shematics on IPDB for more info.
