As suggested above, have you tested the ball return (hole) switch? Remove the ball, lift the playfield up, start a game and activate the ball return switch with your finger. Does it activate the ball kickout relay?

Quoted from wesley:

I tried holding the kick out fingers together, it still won't activate the kick out coil. DaMoib, do you think I did something wrong with the switches on the bank reset relay. Since I got the bank to finally work, now the ball won't kick out.

When you start the game and then close the hole switch:

1) does the motor spin?
2) does the O relay activate?
3) did your targets and sequence bank reset?

How did you fix the bank reset? Did you ONLY clean and adjust some of the switches on the Q relay?

I'll post a schematic in a few mins... the AX relay is in the path, did one of your previous repairs involve AX?

One of your previous issues related to score reel reset ( https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/1976-volley#post-5479767 ), was this resolved? What fixed it?

Here's the path to activate the Ball Return Relay (O). This should be easily testable with a jumper wire. Note the AX make/break switch in the path.

Also, no I didn't resolve the issue with the score reels. I wish I could.

Wait... you never resolved the reset issue?

Is the motor spinning BEFORE you activate the outhole switch?

Quoted from wesley:

That's one of my problems, I can't fix that yet. Don't know how. It almost has the same problem like the O relay. I have to press the Ax relay to reset the score reels.

The score reel reset is your MAIN problem, until that is corrected you will not have power to the O relay - a switch on AX (and, possibly other switches) are blocking it *by design*. I'll post the Volley reset sequence back in the original repair topic linked above. The machine executes these steps *in order*, progressively powering up and getting ready for gameplay.

Also, at this point, you may want to consider some local help, do you know any pinball enthusiasts and/or techs in your area?

From a few of your statements above (motor turns briefly, score wheels reset when AX is activated by hand), sounds like the Start (S) Relay is not triggering AX.

When you press the start button, do AX and JX activate?
