    Again, switch consolidated I/O board to see if the problem follows the board.
    If it does, change the TIP 120 for that particular solenoid.
    The triacs for the Consolidated Electronics I/O are

    Q2:Pin 1 solenoid
    Q3:Pin 2 solenoid
    Q4:Pin 3 solenoid
    Q14: Spotting tong solenoid
    All of them are protected by CB2.

    Q5:Pin 4 solenoid
    Q6:Pin 5 solenoid
    Q7:Pin 6 solenoid
    Q15: Sweep release solenoid
    All protected by CB3

    Q8:Pin 7 solenoid
    Q9:Pin 8 solenoid
    Q10:Pin 9 solenoid
    Q16: Stroke limiter solenoid
    All of them are protected by CB4

    Q11:Pin 10 solenoid
    Q12:Ball door solenoid
    Q17:Shark solenoid
    All of them are protected by CB5

    All motor contactors,pin light relay,masking lamp relays are controlled by U1
    (ULN 2803,This is 8 darlington transistors packed in a 18 pin DIP chip),protected by CB1.

    Those transistors are TIP120's which are available at Radio Shack. Be very careful.
    It's easy to booger up the board trying to un-solder those and get them off.
    Make sure you use caution and precision instruments.

    9times out of 10 it's the table cable. U can't go off just testing it because it might work in the position your testing it

    bad solenoid? maybe a pinch wire(check resistance)? pin holder?
