Hi All!

I've been working through a Jokerz! machine with incessant issues and I'm getting all switches on Row 2 locked on, causing Solenoid 1 to fire constantly (but not locking on). I've been able to test all the switches individually and their diodes, aside from the A/C Switch Side C as I'm silly and can't seem to find it.

The A/C relay is switching along with Solenoid 1, so I'm fairly confident it's working as expected, but I'm at a bit of a loss. I thought the issue might be related to the Interconnect board as I can make it stop if I remove all switches from the MPU, but I tested U1, U2, U3 and I think they're working correctly, but I could be wrong.

I'm pretty stumped and would like to get this thing out of my life, any input or ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Is the resistor pak at SR11 cracked or shorted ?

LTG : )

Pretty heavy resistance across all legs of SR11, Sir. The board recently came back from Eugene MOSH, so I think the MPU might be okay.

If I remove all switch plugs from the MPU board I can short individual switches out and that feels like something
