Quoted from tmfeuerh:
A new issue popped up today. I am seeing random colors throughout the playfield and the timer clocks are jumbled.
Also, all the ribbon cables underneath the playfield are hot glued to the boards. I dont know if that is stock or if a precious owner did that, but it complicates things. If I needed to remove the hot glue , how would I go about doing that without destroying every light board?
Also, I am on the lasted code 1.42.
I lifted the playfied and noticed all ribbon and molex connections have hot glue on them. I started the game back up again and it was back to normal, but before the end of my game, it was showing multiple colors and the timer was not showing real numbers on either timer. I am hoping this is something central and easy to fix considering it is impacting all of the lights. When I go into light test, it will not not show all green, blue, etc....it is all mixed.
I peeled the glue off of the ribbon cables between the bonus lamp board and the ball saver display and reseated those connections. This fixed the issue for half a game and it went back to the same issue. The bonus lights are all different colors and they stay solid and the clock is not readable. Is this likely a bad ribbon cable, another spot I need to reseat?

Contact Spooky, but I have seen this before and this can be caused from a flaky power connection on the first PD-LED board in your chain. You can find the first board buy following the gray serial cable. It is the LED board that is closest in the chain to the backbox. The 2 pin power connector is not making good contact or is falling out of the IDC connector.
