Hey everyone! Have a couple little bugs I am trying to sort out on a friend's Mystic, but this one has me stumped!

When I have the playfield in the upright position (service position) and shown below in the photo, all of my playfied solenoids work perfectly. However, when I set the playfield down to test the machine, everything is dead again! It's so strange and I just cannot seem to think where I should start looking to make the playfield work while sitting in it's normal position and not just when sitting upright!

On a side note, the right spinner seems to be registering the top left rollover on the playfield. Any quick things to check? Thanks!

Fuse holder and connectors would be my focus - does the game boot fully into attract mode when the playfield is lowered into the cabinet?

It does! Everything works as it should, just only when the games playfield is upright for some reason

Check the wiring on that left side drop target reset coil. Is that getting pinched when the PF is lowered? Looks suspect.

I see the original 40 year old playfield fuse holder. Those are usually deteriorated by now and no longer hold the fuse tight. You should replace it.
