Hello everyone. I bought a pretty clean paragon in non working condition and I'm trying to get it going again. The mpu was rebuilt by Barakandl and the solenoid driver. Oats and rectifier board are both brand new along with the female plugs on the rectifier board. We were able to get the game to boot up and go in attract mode and start a game but no solenoids work except for the coin lockout and knocker. Every switch scores points like they should but that's about it. I checked all my test pints for correct voltage and everything tests where they should. I also checked the fuse under the play field and it test ok out of the game, and I also tried a new one just for safe measures. Still nothing. The only issue I have not got around to doing is fixing the right side flippers. The solenoids are missing but I figured it would still allow everything else to work. Does this need to be a complete circuit for all the solenoids to work? What other things can I check?

Yes,the right side flippers are missing the solenoids completely. I wasn't sure if that would play a part in nothing working at all or not

Problem solved!!!! Not having anything connected to the right flippers caused none of the solenoids to work. It must require a complete circuit?

Everything is working great and playing like it should!!! Thanks for all the help!

I really appreciate it. I was completely stumped on this. It makes sense though after thinking about it.
