    Hi Friends,

    My GI (under playfield) lighting is going out, locking on, or ghosting and appears to be due to some interesting rewiring done to the connector in the head. If someone owns a Wipeout, would you please be kind enough to take a photo of the A6J2 connector in the head (lower left board)? It looks like the connector had a wire added, and several were wire nutted together (common ground or power?). Need to look at the schematics later before I attempt to replace the connector and wire it properly, but I would really love a visual aid.

    Adding a photo from my phone shortly so you can see my concern.

    Got the same in my Stargate and I think it is an original brand works...
    One time I got playfield lights ghosting so I unplug every playfield connector clean them and scratch them with sand paper and works well now...
    You also might shunt all ground white wires upper left of the transformator as it preconized on pinrepair.com
    I did it and never have any transistor burning on A3 driver board after that.

    Have fun
