    I got a strikes and spares solid state and everytime I hit the flippers it gives me points? When I play my friends strikes and spares it does not give me points when I hit the flippers. Where should I look to solve the problem?

    There's probably a switch somewhere that is making contact when the playfield vibrates.

    Go into switch test mode and shake the game a little bit to see if you can trigger the switch and see what the game identifies it as.

    How many points does it give you? Might help you narrow down which switch. There are a lot of switch capacitors on that game (on all the rollovers and on the right hand standups) - back EMF from the flipper coil field collapsing can be picked up by these and cause spurious hits. All vintage caps should be replaced on all those switches (they are essential on this title to get the star rollovers to consistently score).

    I will try that tonight and see if I can find the switch.
