#1 4 days ago


I just bought a Star Wars Pro pinball and I discovered 2 issues :

1 : Death Star leds are always on, even in attract mode. I checked it in diagnostic menu led check (Death Star laser 1-4 & center) and leds were always on, no blinking).

2 : No leds from card Node 9b work (in attract mode and during the game). Even the flash linked to CN2 doesn't work. I checked all the connectors (disconnect and reconnect), check each led in diagnostic menu and all leds stay off.

I need your help.

Anybody got any ideas ?

I would like to test both node boards, 9b & 9c, but I don't know how to proceed.

I opened a ticket to Stern support.

Following their answer, I performed the following tests :

1 : All the leds on the board 9a work.

2 : I unplugged CN3 connector on 9b (serial link between 9b and 9c), no result, 9b leds don’t work. Green leds from Death Star were off (normal...).

3 : I replace the serial cable from 9a to 9b by the one (that works) from 8b and 8c and it changed nothing, leds from 9b don’t work...
