Yesterday a screw fell into one of the pop bumpers areas and I didn't know it until I turned the game on. A pop bumper keep firing and then I discover the screw and got it out of the machine. Since then the winged monkey won't move especially to go back up to the castle. I assumed something shorted maybe a transistor. Any ideas where to start looking?

Check to make sure the monkey's wiring harness isn't getting hung up. It could have moved while you had the playfield up.

Just tried again today and after about 5-10 minutes it started working. Best I can tell the wiring harness much have got jammed just barely enough to foul things up. So thank you so much Steve_in_Escalon for the suggestion and nice it was a relatively easy fix!

Wish I just had walked away last night before I got so frustrated! I should know not ever work on my pins late at night and when tired. Just glad I didn't mess things up as I've so often done taking one minor problem and really screwing things up a ton!
