    I am trying to figure this out, when I get a high score - I am unable to enter my initials as the letters just scroll by. I believe there is a short on the flipper board but all the transistors all appear to meter correctly. Also in test you would normally push the flipper button to eject the balls, this games ejects all six every time you get to clear the balls out step. The cabinet flipper switches are adjusted correctly so I am fairly certain it is on the board. Also, the game plays and scores with no issues. All help is appreciated.

    Somehow, it sounds like the computer is not registering flipper button presses. Step one is to go into dedicated switch test mode, and make sure that when you push a flipper button, the flipper button switch itself lights up. My guess is that it won't. Sadly, I don't have that flipper setup in front of me right this moment, so I can't tell you if it's on your board or your switches. I don't think it's a short, as that would make the flippers be on all the time. It may be a failed component. The easiest way to tell would be to swap the current flipper board with a known good one, and see what happens.
