Just wondering if anyone can help me, the ball thrower solonoid is constantly on when I power up my machine. Obviously I can only turn the power on for a few seconds otherwise the solonoid will burn up. The pinball machine was working fine when I put it in storage for just over 12 months ago but now I have this issue. Any help would be much appreciated

The first thing to check is if the battery on the mpu board is leaking. The leaking battery acid can cause all kinds of problems. Second is if you have a DMM , check the solenoid driver transistors on the solenoid driver board. Do a resistance test from the metal tab to ground to check for a shorted driver transistor. Last is to check the diode resistance on the coil with the diode unsoldered.
