Did a pf swap on my I500. First driver board (A) worked fine except for
a GI prob and ugly looking hacks. So replaced w/ driver board (B) and
when coin door is closed trough popper energizes repeatedly. So
replaced w/ driver board (C) and now when coin door is closed upper
popper energizes repeatedly. What gives?

Connector turned wrong way, connector in wrong spot. Ribbon cable not
right - be sure red stripe pin one each end, and don't get it off a row
high, low, left or right.

If that is all good, then see if you lost opto power on the driver board.
LTG :)

As always - thank you Lloyd. It turned out to be an opto problem.
Everything working just fine now. Thanks again.

Boy I like that game!
