In desperate need of HALP. When the machine (Star Wars Comic Premium) is powered up the fork ramp goes to the up (or medium, I cannot tell) position and stays there. It is my understanding that it shouldn't even begin in this position.
In game when you shoot the left orbit the ball just sits behind the fork. It registers, and the fork moves maybe a quarter inch down, then back into the previous position. Eventually the game tries to find the ball and the fork budges again, but that's it.
Background: Brand new Comic Premium opened today. Issue was present with 1.04 (I think that was the original software). I updated and am currently running v 1.10 software with the same problem.
55: medium height (moves down a hair from 57)
56: cycles all the way down into the playfield and back to medium, but a bit lower than at 55
57: moves a bit higher from 56
(machine acts like all 3 pass)
64: Home, input 7 ground 10 white/blue
65: Mid, input 7 ground 10 white/violet (manual says should be pin eight)
66: Mid, input 7 ground 10 white/grey (manual says should be Up, pin 9)
The standouts for me are Mid registering for both 65 and 66, and input 7 showing up 3 times. But?
I don't know why the manuals fork microswitch numbers of 61 (home), 62 (middle), 63 (up) don't match with either of the values given by the machine.
What I've done:
Reseated all ethernet cables and harness cables from fork assembly to node board 9 (and all joints along the way).
Checked for continuity all along the harness between the white/violet and white/gray, as well as their corresponding input pins on node board 9, and have found no continuity.
unplugged the microswitch harness (results in the fork just going up and down the whole time, it's plugged back in now)
Adjusted microswitches so they all register in the fork diagnosis.
My other ideas:
Reinstall same software (don't know if this is possible)? Software update was previously installed before all the reseating and adjusting. Maybe installing the software with a few microswitches compressed at the same time created an issue?
Reseat everything on node board 9?
Check the back of node board 9 for solder blobs/shorts? I thought if this were the issue I might see continuity on the input pins though.
I have a Jurassic Park, Turtles, and Ghostbusters, so I may have a compatible node board I could swap in to test if needed? Not thrilled about monkeying around with other machines that work, but I will if needed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! I believe I have read the other threads on Fork issues, but didn't see one relevant here. Thanks!
