Ok help is needed.

My TOM started acting up. Doing the weird guy falling. and weird sound issues. The main being that when Multiball is triggered there is no sound for the ramp up to Multiball. The guys saying Multiball is there just no sound leading up to it.

I've looked at the trunk opto. And sure enough found a cracked trunk opto and replaced it. cleaned all the optos I could reach. Checked for broken wires etc. Everything look ok. Still no sound. Checked all my eddy sensors, their good. Haven't went into back box yet. Thought Id ask you guys first.

Looks like I have ghosts in my machine.

Any ideas and help would be great.

Does it do this every time? Mine does this once in awhile. I thought it was just a issue with the DCS system and was common.

no it's a problem with the eddy sensor in front of the trunk, make it less sensitive, will solve that issue

Even if the mode is starting and the DMD shows the animations for Multiball?

Yep.

Yes.

When you hit the trunk to start multiball, music is supposed to start playing while the trunk turns, drops the ball, etc. But if something else is hit/triggered during this sequence, the music will cut out while the animation continues until the announcer says "Multiballllll!" Often times the eddy sensor is tripped by the trunk spinning with the ball. Only thing you can do to stop this is lower the sensitivity of the eddy sensor via the small potentiometer on the eddy board. Lowering the sensitivity too much will require more centered shots to the trunk/sensor.

I had the same issue I think. reset all your ribbon cables. I think that is what fixed my sound leading up to multi-ball.
