Well....trouble in paradise. Today I turned the machine on and only the right eye was working. I unscrewed the head and wiggled the left eye's connector and it came back on. About 10 minutes later, both eyes went dark. I inspected it again and the connectors aren't loose (tried unplugging and plugging them back in) but the power light on the controller board for the mod was out. I first checked to make sure that the connection underneath the playfield to the power source was good and it was. I then tried to wiggle some of the wires in the mod and can get the power light on the controller board to come on for about a second or two but no long enough to get the eyes to come on. I don't notice anything strange when I inspected the mod's boards, wiring, or connectors to include the solder joints. I messed with it for about 20 minutes and can't get the power to stay on long enough even for the eyes to come back on. I left the existing sockets for the eyes in but thoroughly wrapped the whole area in electrical tape and there's no metal exposed.

Not sure what's going on but I'm thinking something faulty in the mod's boards or wiring. I'm not super experienced with things like this and not sure how to fix it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Following up to say that F-2niro reached out and is a great guy. He helped me diagnose the issue and is sending out a replacement. This is a first class seller who makes some great stuff. Looking forward to bring the Boney Beast back to life soon.
