I've got an issue with a Gottlieb Genie. Every time the machine is powered on, three solenoids (that I know of) immediately lock on. The saucer outhole kicker, ball trough kickout and knocker solenoids are the three that are locked on (unless a relay coil or one that is not easily seen is also locked). All transistors tested good but I replaced them anyway. Also, the interconnect harness is new. If I disconnect it from the driver board, the coils do not lock or fire at all. The only other culprit that I can think it might be is one of the "spider chips" on the main MPU board. Is this a possible cause of this behavior or is there another possibility I should look into? This behavior was not happening but started all of a sudden while I was shopping it out and doing some restoring on the machine. That's why I was hoping it was something simple that happened and not the MPU board crapping out on me. Any suggestions or things to check would be greatly appreciated.
