This is a machine I am resurrecting from the dead
I have gone thru every score reel and the player unit. machine is in free play. The whole head unit in my opinion seems
fully operational... cleaned and checked.
I have changed out the game over relay (burned) and reset and cleaned all the ax bx etc switches... I have tightened
all the switch screws properly... I have not touched the score motor!
HERE IS THE ISSUE THAT WAS HAPPENING AND IS STILL HAPPENING:
Machine fires up fine and goes throught the start cycle... reels reset etc etc
Within 1sec to 2 minutes the playfield stops working... doesn't say tilt doesn't say game over... nothing, the lights remain
on but the bumpers and flippers go dead?
I can hit the new game button and all resets...
I have done multiple test to try and find out if its a specific action kicks it off and it doesn't seen that way... sometime even just
activating the flippers will make it shut down... other times it scoring points.
I've looked allover inside for something tripping... even in the dark for a large blue spark to no avail...
Where should I begin?
Thanx in advance
