So I went to play my RFM for the first time in a couple weeks and I have a few switch issues now. The left ramp scores and works fine until it starts a mode where it’s needed to progress the game. When that happens the right cellar hole doesn’t kick the ball out(not the open cellar hole on the right, the other one farther towards the back of the machine between it and the main ramp). Once it does it’s ball cycle it will kick the ball out and the game continues. What gives? The only thing I notice different is that when it boots it says everything is ok except some bad checksum in updater or something like that? It’s also reset the high scores as well. Thanks for any help, not sure where to turn?

Was it throwing the checksum error before your issues started?

I believe the bad checksum message means the latest game code that was uploaded to the game is corrupted.

Given that, the game can't run the updated code and has defaulted to running the default version of code on the PRISM. On my game, the default code was really old and was just functional enough to allow the game to be updated. It's been years since I actually played with it.

I would reload the latest RFM game code and see if that fixes your problem. Upadating requires a null modem serial cable and a PC with the P2K updater app.
