Hi All,

Just trying to help a buddy out. I think he is afraid of Pinsiders. Not sure why. I think they are wonderful folks.

Anyway, he recently purchased a gorgeous Williams Lucky Seven. Unfortunately, the flippers tend to go out on it a lot, mid-game. When this happens, all playfield switches and other scoring elements still work, as well as GI, feature lighting and displays. Generally, he just starts looking around at the table and in a short period of time they come back on.

Using the schematic, I located the correct connector on the driver board and nothing looks amiss there. The connections between the playfield wires and head wires look ok as well. Both flippers have the diodes in place, and they appear to be wired in the correct direction.

Anyone have an idea or a direction to point me or him in? The table is GORGEOUS and I just want to try to get it up and running for him.

Flipper relay on the driver board probably has pitted contacts and it needs to be replaced.

Thanks! Will check on that.
