Picked up a TAF that initially worked, pretty good. few lights and switches needed replacing. Then one day the cabinet switches didn't work (test, volume, start, basically all of J205 didn't work. Since I had a new power driver board and MPU board (Rottendog) I was going to put in sometime, I popped them in. Machine turns on and now I have all of J205 stuff working but no playfield general lights, flashers or solenoids work in test mode, just switches. Checked fuses, connections (as far as correct placement) and all seem ok. I'm guessing (or hoping) it's something stupid... Can anyone help?

Sounds like you missed a connector, check to see if its buried in the harness somewhere.

Do you think all that could be one connection? And, what is J210? The wired connection was just hanging mid air because J210 on the old board didn't have any male pins to connect too.

Manual has that information.

My bad, I said J210 but I meant J110

Ribbon cable between CPU and driver board on right. Not off by a row ?

I have checked each connection including ribbons at least 6 times. I have also checked every fuse. So I left the new CPU board in and pulled the new power driver board and reinstalled the old one. Now I have lights but still not solenoids.
