Hi guys when I start a game and hit the ball the game says oh no then ball 1 locked and I haven't even locked the ball it's still playing on the playfield . Also when in an illusion sometimes the timer stops counting down . Any ideas

If I remember correctly, it says "Oh No!" and shows a guy falling down the stairs when you hit the center loop, but doesn't make it all the way around and falls into the backside of the trunk. If that's happening when the shot isn't made, it's probably the subway opto. Clean that with some rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and see if that resolves the issue. Go into the switch test and see if that switch is open (It's #36, and it's typically closed).
