Balls aren't ejecting out of the attached image. Would this be the "Lockup Kickout" or "Swamp Release" solenoid that causes the balls to eject? Outside of an obvious disconnected wire, why else wouldn't a coil be firing? I don't have my multi-meter handy but will be able to check that at a later point.

Thanks in advance,

As far as I remember,
the Swamp Release coil pops a ball into the Lockup Kickout, which then ejects from that scoop there.
If either coil is bad, then you won't get anything out of there that's shot into the Vault, Thing, or Swamp.

Check the fuses. Might be something simple.

Thanks for the confirmation. When I did the solenoid test the "Lockup Kickout" wasn't going so I figured that was the issue but wanted confirmation that it should be firing. I'm not great at reading electronics diagrams. At any rate, with further digging I found at disconnected wire on "Lockup Kickout".

Thanks for the help.
