1000PointsWhenLit (resized).JPG

#1 6 months ago

The top four buttons on my Aladdin's Castle score 10 points when unlit. (Should it be 100?) When the ball goes through the A-B-C-D lanes below the buttons, it lights the buttons and advances the bonus as it should.

But when lit, the buttons only give 100 points instead of 1,000 points. I've looked at the schematic and can't even find where that part is. Any help? Obviously I'm not the best with schematics and fair at repairs when steps are pointed out. (Thank you MarkG! for guiding me through repairs.)

Here is a clean schematic posted by SLOCHAR https://images.pinside.com/a/8d/af/a8daf0d309cba859cc8feca114fb2158adb622fe.png

Whoa! Looking at the schematic really worked! 1000 points for lit button only when it's on 3-ball play. Tried it and it works!

What kinda crap is that?? Mine is set for 5 balls.......I'm getting ripped off!

Love my Alladin's Castle.

Crazy? I was just wondering if I could find the right wire at the 3/5 ball Jones plug if I could rig up hooking two to the 5 ball side and the 100/1000 wire to the to the three ball side and get 1000 points on the 5 ball game. Nothing permanent, just wrap spare wires around the Jones plug ends, then push the other ends of the wires into the sockets. I may do that just for fooling around.

The manual (p. 6) also says, “When lit on a 5 ball game the buttons score 100 points. When lit on a 3 ball game the buttons score 1000 points.” There’s nothing about this on the instructions card and so the statement on the playfield that buttons score 1000 when lit is deceiving if you’re playing a 5 ball game.

Good luck with your experiment!

But then the manual also says, “Rollover buttons score 100 points when not lit.” Based on game play and the schematic, only 10 points are awarded (or am I wrong?).

You are right and so is the schematic. Tried it both ways: 3 balls 10 & 1,000, 5 balls 10 & 100.

Bet the designer originally meant to have 100 unlit on 3 ball. Would make a better symmetry of scoring.
