    Hello and thanks for trying to help me with my problem. I own a Playboy 35th Anniversary pinball machine by Data East and got a lot of good info here recently. This problem just started. The P in the word pinball that's between the speakers is always lit from the time you put a quarter in or have the machine in the Free play mode and just turn it on. "P I N B A L L" lights up letter by letter when you supposedly shoot your ball up the ramp when multi ball function is activated. My machine has a new cpu by rottendog and all of the other boards have been rebuilt. UI set the machine back to factory thinking that maybe it was something I did. The initial test shows no bad switches or coils. Any help would sure be appreciated.

    After posting this I found a setting in the machine that is a PINBALL MEMORY. It was set to ON so after turning it off the light went off. So many settings this machine has

    Quoted from chad:

    That's not it because when he set the "pinball memory" setting to off, it went off.
