Quoted from herg:
You can also disconnect the playfield wiring and measure the DC voltage on the column output connector. You should see something in the area of 3V. If it's 0V or 18V
I've measured all of the pins from J137 they all read like 2.7 V except for the pin where yellow gray is connected, I have no current there... So the predrivers for this particular transistor is an array "ULN2308", replaced that 1, no difference then replaced the 74ls374 8bit thingy... Still no difference. All of the other columns connected to these parts still work... I really, REALLY don't know what to do anymore...
Maybe it helps if I give you more insight...
The troubles on the board were:
-J115 GI was completely burnt so I jumped all connections. Works fine now.
-Transistor from the droptarget was broken, replaced the TIP 102 and the predriver and it works
-Transistor from flashers left poppers was broken.. removed screw that was screwed in next to the fittings (touching) and fixed the shortage and replaced the TIP102 and predriver. Works fine now
-Transistor Q91 TIP107 lamp column (present problem) was flashing out of control. In the single lamp test 1 of these lamps started to burn when I tested another single lamp from a different column. Very weird. So I tested the tip 107. Result: 0.00 Ohms. Broken right? So replaced everything up to the 8bit controller. Now the lamps don't flash at all. No power coming from the tip 107 on that particular yellow-gray pin. All of the other pins read fine.
I suspect shortage beneath the droptarget that is were the most yellow grey column lamps are wired and maybe touched the droptargets frame somewhere. (because the droptarget transistor was broken too). Also, The flashers that were broken too also resided in that area.
But I checked the wiring and voltage when operating these parts and no voltage on the yellow gray wiring.
Phew... That was all the info I have.. Any clues? Doesn't matter how trivial please give me some input! I know for sure it's something stupid I'm overlooking...

And, you have to LAND on the option in the database...

I am very disappointed
