Default f14 Tomcat game ends with 'c50j' ... more

Title says most. The c50j shows up in player 1. Could be related, sometimes after a side drain nothing happens for 30 or 40 seconds, then all the Solenoids eject which gives another game ball. Does not do this on last ball.

Thanks!

Default So IMA D.S.

the c50j is actually [50] which is the match number. Geesh, sometimes! This is still delaying after a drain once-in-a-while; and I noticed that when the ball goes into the upper right ball holder we delay again for 10ish seconds before anything happens. Sound works fine; it is not talking during this time. Ideas?

Do you have the correct # of balls loaded in the machine? When the machine goes into that looking for ball function it usually means that not enough balls are in the machine. It also could be a problem with the multiball trough or outhole trough switches or optos.

Yes sir - 4 balls and setup for 4 balls. May have fixed itself as the machine has been sitting for bout 3 years; maybe it needed loosened up. Both switches have passed 'switch edges' and DMM reports near zero when closed. Have another issue - when doing multi-ball in 3rd ball, machine fires all balls at ya, then goes to end of game; flippers die, no scores, nothing. Even if you have balls on the play field. I have set 'factory' on it and also have tested all switches and solenoids. What am I missing?

If itís been sitting for years the batteries should be changed.
