    I have very weird problem on T3, so when you start to play, it doing ok, all switches working fine, music ok, BUT

    ball save light keep blinking and never stop and when you get ball any hole, game will hold there. So example if you locked ball or drain it, game tells that ball locked but dont give new ball and dont start ball search.

    When you make factory reset, it works, hour, day..... and again same problem....

    I have cleaned and test ribbon cables, it have 4.00 software,
    what to do next?

    Go into the switch test menu. First make sure that all of the trough switches are registering. Second, make sure that the switch at the base of the shooter lane is working properly. The wireform on this switch gets bent out of shape easily and causes alot of issues down stream. Make sure it reads closed when the ball is resting against the plunger. Since the ball save light never turns off I would bet the game thinks that the ball has never left the trough or shooter lane and causes the problem

    I have checked switches, those works fine, I also change optoboards to ball through - Same problem

    THEN I swapped cpu from Lotr, It works (I played few games)

    I try this T3 cpu to Lotr and no sound???

    So I think problem is in cpu
