I recently moved my STTNG (not sure if related) and decided to run thru the switch test to remove the Borg switch errors (error dot because I never seem to get the ship loaded).

When I open the coin door, i get the normal door open/power message. However, of the four buttons, only two seem to be working correctly. The left (back/exit) and volume up button (3rd from left) work all the time. The volume down button (2nd from left) doesn't do anything. When I first open the door, sometimes the right/enter button will act like volume down...otherwise it does nothing.

Any ideas?

Quoted from Skyemont:

This just happened to my TAFG today. First check your wiring to the buttons. I had a wire come loose which caused two not to work.

I pulled the bracket and looked over the wiring. All the wires looked attached and moving them around didn't show any as disconnected. I'll look at them again to see if any are almost disconnected.

It has a remote battery and no corrosion.

Was playing with it some between games. I'm not sure its the switches as I've (without cutting) shorted the (exposed) wires with the same results. One thing it did this time that it had done once before - as soon as I open the door, it went into a high score reset countdown. Fortunately it didn't take out my GC score. I'd think ground if all of them went out or were acting funny...but its just vol - and Enter.

In the meantime, is there a way to manually reduce the volume? Since the Vol + works but Vol - doesn't, I managed to increase the volume by accidentally hitting +.

No corrosion LTG.

Just to update the post. While it doesn't affect play except for bong sound while playing, it would reset scores if I open the coin door while its happening. I disconnected the coin door from the board. Interestingly it still happens. So now I need to track the issue upstream from there.
