I recently purchased a tom machine and decided to shop it out. After I put everything back together it looked great but now has an error "ground short rows 1 and 7". I figured that means there is a ground wire touching something it should'nt but I can't seem to find anything that looks like it could be the problem. I am relatively new to the hobby but am perfectly comfortable tearing things apart to try to find the problem. Could this be a board issue or is it most likely something with playfield wiring somewhere? I have never messed with the boards but not afraid to try..just not sure where to start, so any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.
Also, since I am kind of new to the hobby I'm assuming getting hooked on buying machines and fixing them up is normal. But how many machines can you buy with the excuse to friends and family that it's a "great investment" before they realise I have a problem? I have everyone fooled at the moment, lol!!
