Hey all! Im having some difficulty resolving an issue with Scared Stiff. She started spitting multiple balls into play and when i reboot i get the “check opto trough, 12v and wiring” prompt

Here is what ive done so far:

ive reseated all connectors: nothing changed

ive had the mpu board and underplayfield opto board proffessionaly checked: no issue

ive replaced opto transmitter and reciever trough boards: problem persists

ive checked the wiring for breaks: i see nothing

More info:

all trough optos switches show filled in test with the exception of the ball jam opto

game will not start until i lift the playfield to trigger ball jam opto and then it proceeds to spit out all balls two or three times, subsides andthen a game begins. Typically first ball will run fine with no extra balls being thrown into play Ball two will start kicking balls out randomly.

I have the 12v daughter board installed to remedy the random shut down at stiff o meter completion. Led on board is showing a clean 12v

Am I missing something? This is driving me nuts.

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions!
