This sounds much like a problem I had two weeks ago, I disconnected and reconnected and nothing worked, switched the optos, checked boards, checked for bad wires, etc...

I wound up checking the transmitting opto after a friend recommended me to do so with a camera (iphone 4 will work) to see if infrared was passing through the diode, and when I did that for some odd reason or another things started to work. Not sure if that was exactly a fix though or if my machine was just messing with me however.

Curious to know, do you by chance have LEDs in your machine? I'm having the same issue as mentioned earlier and I did a little adjustment to my LEDs in that area and my problem seems to be solved.

I removed one damn 4-LED 44 from pinballlife.com back to an incandescent and shits suddenly back to normal. I think they might be called abl_fucking_bright_bayonet for a reason now...979592_10151952102278677_308841816_n.jpg
