Hello friends. I purchased a Bally XENON pinball machine and am just getting around to working out the bugs. I bought a solenoid driver board for it which is a Rottendog board. It says that it's compatible with this game. The game powers up and the LED blinks 7 times on the main board. In the first test mode the score numbers all count up properly. When you hit the solenoid test the only solenoid that energizes is #2 which is I think the extra game knocker. No other solenoids energize although it does show the counting of them as it's going through the test. The test point voltages on the solenoid driver board all are within reason with the exception of one which says 300 volts which reads 240 volts. I'm not sure where to go from here and would appreciate any help that you smart folks can provide. Thanks in advance.

Check the fuse underneath the playfield down by the flippers.
