Hello, I have Xenon with a (green ?) wire that is not connected and I can’t figure out where goes. I am going blind from looking at the schematics. This wire is under the Capture Ball light (with 2 brown/white wires) and above the drop targets. Can someone take a picture of theirs for me. Thank you very much.

Do a lamp test to verify:

Is that green with a black tracer? color#48 on the schematic ... a5j1-5 "upper side target arrow"

Sorry my machine is in another location at the moment. dunno if I have any pics but will take a look

Thank you for your help! The green wire does not have a trace however, I think you might be referring to the opposite side of the playfield sine you mentioned the arrow. I attached another picture of the top side for more clarity of where the wire is located

The wire may be light blue. It is faded.

I don't have any good pics of the underside of my playfield.

the arrow I was thinking of is towards the drop targets but still a l~o~n~g way from that tube shot lamp

Does a lamp test indicate any feature lamps out ?

An image here but a bit obscured by the tube shot socket.

See if it has continuity with a blue wire on your rectifier board connector J1

The drawings kinda shows they used a blue wire in a lot of places ... but I suspect it's the feature lamp bus

That looks like what I am referring to. I will get the playfield back in the cabinet and check it out. I will post my findings so you know. Thank you for the picture and schematic.

If it's 18 gauge solid blue its the sw IL bus wire. Measure the voltage on it. If it's 6.3vDC it probably solders to the base of that switched lamp in the center of your circle that has a dab of solder with no wire on it.
