Last week the ship started registering random hits. I felt like it happened at times when the ball triggered the "skill shot made" (switch #60). The "ship made" opto switch is #61. They are the same opto board. In switch test I could not reliably produce any error, but occasionally when I triggered the "skill shot made" (#61) it would register as "ship made" (#60).
So I assumed it was that I opto board and replaced it today. I played about five games and everything seem to be fine. Left the machine on for a few hours and came back to play again, now both switches are acting crazy. In the test mode the switch for the ship made is not even registering about half the time, and when I trigger the skill shot made switch it either does not register, it registers correctly, or it registers for the other switch (ship made). And if I just let the machine sit in switch test mode about every 20 to 30 seconds one or the other switch will activate spontaneously.
Just in the time it took me to type this one or both the switches have gone off several times in switch test mode without me touching the machine.
While I wait for advice I'm going to reseat all the wiring in the one IDC plug that goes to that board and see if that makes any difference. What should I do next?
