During a game last night on TZ the slot machine stopped shooting out the balls. lifted up the playfield and saw this. looks like a wire has broken loose from the solder. never done any soldering so just wanted to make sure I am not making a mistake. Seems like the wire came loose from the coil and all that needs to be done is strip the wire to new and solder back on correct? Thanks as always!

Correct. The wire has broken loose from the coil and needs re-attachment.

I had the exact same thing happen recently. Easy fix.

If you have access to heat-shrink material it has been suggested to re-solder the wire and slide some heat shrink over the entire connection - coil lug and part of the insulated conductor -
This will aid in reducing mechanical stress on the connector.

Fanatic already answered.

If you are ever in doubt on a Williams DMD game. Go to tests-coils-stop on the coil in question. Hit the start button once, and then by hitting the + diagnostic button, this will step you through coil, fuse, transistor, and wire colors that go to each lug.
