I have a Williams Fire and it says ball waiting. Switch edge test ok. Wires all look ok. Coil test shows several dont work. No stuck switches that I can see. Help?

Does the 'ball waiting' message remain after poking a few playfield targets ?

When powering up it lights up and makes sounds what appears to be normal. When there is a credit and you push start it fires the left trap coil? And says ball waiting. Nothing happens when targets are touched. I will have to see if the message is still there after tapping targets. Its not at my house so might take a few days.

If several coils are out it could be part of a/c alternating circuit. That would cause several flash lamps to fail too. Re-check the solenoid test and note which coils and flashlamps are out. Closely check fuses. No stuck switches...Why is a coil firing? Is the coil stuck on? Shorted driver transistor?. Are three balls in the trough? Use switch edges to test the three micro switches in trough that detect the balls. Game and schematics @ IPDB > http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=859&picno=26286
