This is a new one for me with the stern games. Seams like everyhting on the same drive for the switches does not register. Green yellow stripe, ship switches, green stand ups, ship hit opto, jack are all not working. the other switch lines all seam to work. I did lose the coil on the sails and had to replace the coil and the trans on the driver board. put it back in the ship acted odd, checked and none of the switches register but all test fine on meter. any ideas what could be going on here?

Connector off of I/O board ? Broken wire between switch and I/O board ?

LTG : )

Go into switch test and let’s see if the row is ground shorted

could it be the transistor on that line? i have never had one fail before, and the game was working fine till the coil shorted out and wiped out the transistor on the driver board. just seams odd to me that i would lose the entire line on that one switch drive....not one switch works and none of them appear shorted to ground.
