    I have a bk2k that the attract mode is on but not working.
    Any advise would help.
    Thank you guys in advance.

    Do you mean it won't start a game? If it's not set for free play, make sure it has credits or it won't start.

    Quoted from ChiPinMovers:

    the attract mode is on but not working.

    How do you know the attract mode is on if it is not working? Do you mean attract sounds are not on? Attract mode is just a series of insert lamps that flash in different light shows to attract attention of a potential player once the game has booted and is ready to be played. The attract sounds can be turned on/off separately.

    Attract sounds on most all games are default off if the batteries die or you replace them when the game off or if you install NVRAM. It can be turned back on in the adjustment menu.

    To clarify the sounds are not working. To be honest I did not pay attention to see if the attract mode flashers are flashing. If I recall i went into settings and made sure attract mode is on. My apologies if im missing info or Is it possible the menu has an option for attract mode and attract sounds and maybe I have the sound off?

    The attract mode is only the insert lamps that are always cycling different patterns and are always on as long as the game boots and is not being played. This is to attract people to play the game.

    No flashers are on during attract mode to conserve power.

    Attract mode sounds are default off if the batteries die, change batteries while game is off, or install NVRAM.

    Turning on/off the attract sounds is the only adjustment that is available in the adjustment menu.

    Ok so I have verified the attract sounds are on. Batteries are new. Holds free play setting. Sound works fine during gameplay just no attract sounds..
    My fire pin (next to bk2k) attract sounds work as they should. I can turn them on and off in menu.
    Anything else I can do to trouble shoot?

    What version is the game and sound ROMs? I would press on all the socketed parts on the MPU and sound boards.

    Setting 48, attract mode sounds, needs to be on for it work.
    My bk2k will only play attract music/voice after a game has just been finished. It goes thru 5 attract modes w/sound, then reverts back to just the light show. No attract sounds played when powered up, or any other time. By design I assumed?
    See if you have sounds after you finish a game.
