While playing my Harlem Globetrotters, the game powers up fine and everything works until some switches on the playfield are hit and then the displays and scoring go dead. What is the most common cause of this sort of issue?

First stop: Rectifier board connectors.

Second stop: Solenoid board connectors.

Third stop: MPU J4 connector.

The game will not be dependable until at least these are rebuilt, both sides, headers and pins.

Then the filter capacitor on the Solenoid board.

Then perform the self diagnostics, including switch tests to see if any problems need to be addressed...like all the rest of the connectors.

Did I mention connectors?

Thanks very much Cody! Could you guess that I did not do the pins...thought I could get away without it, I will be ordering the connector tomorrow.

I thought the thread was "weird behavior BY globe trotters" LOL!

And I'm thinking "that sounds normal" LOL!

Does the game reset? If so, possible short to the slam switch. (Bally games of this era would just reboot when slammed.)
