Hi!

I have a lamp problem with my white water. The Hazards doesn't seem to light up when they should. Some other lamps lights up when they shouldn't. Also, some lights are lightning up at the same time (also in test mode, when only testing one lamp). This is a full Led, with "no ghosting leds".

grateful for some help! (Pinball beginner)

OK, let's find out which lamps are not working correctly, and then see if they are all on the same row/column. There could be a common wire running to each socket that is making is screw up.

Or other things like if they are all one the same PBC (green computer lamp socket bulb thinggy" under the PF. I know Wh20 has a mix of sockets and boards

I did the exact same thing with the disaster drop and left ramp switch. Glad you figured it out.

This is why we label the plugs with matching numbers when we break games down guys

I've heard the horror stories on the TZ upper playfield where there are two identical connectors for coils and switches. Get them mixed up and you blow the entire switch matrix system on the CPU.

Luckily I just bought this game so I was not guilty this time.
Two lamps was also in the wrong place. And I found another misplace switch.

Thanks guys
