Hi All,

Bikini setup for free play. I like the setup that uses the
toggle switch wired to the door plug 48-2 and 50-2 and replay register resetting to 0.

Has anyone had an issue with the replay register not resetting all the way back to 0 on a power up
with the game having replays already on the register.

Just a side note... if I undo the Free Play modification, I put 100 replays on the register then
powered up.... the register resets back to 0.

Another side note... I do like actually putting coins into the machine, so I won't lose any sleep over not having Free Play setup, just would be nice

besides the switch on the door plug, you permanently closed the SPST switch on the replay register ... the one on the right ... correct?

if you did something to the SPDT switch on the left, that could mess up replay reset.

what does "not resetting all the way back" mean? It started resetting then stopped?

Yes closed the SPST switch on the right.
I will trace the wires on the left.
Yes started resetting thrn stopped.

I will check back . Thank you!

Ok, Im gonna mark this one resolved.

I checked the wires to and from the left SPDT switch on the replay register, all appear good.

So, what I did next was I made the Free Play setup ... permanent (removing the temporary setup using alligator clips and leads), soldered the toggle switch in place and adjusted the right replay register switch SPST closed.

I played a few games (Free Play) and then setup a big winner (manually) with a Futurity Game... 300 replays. I turned the machine off, after a few minutes, turned the game back on... and the replay register reset all the way back to 0.

I then toggled the switch to accept coins and played a few more games and then setup a big winner (manually)... 96 replays. I turned the machine off, after a few minutes, turned the game back on... and the replay register reset all the way back to 0.

So, I marked this as resolved. My thought is the temporary setup was flakey somehow. Anyways back to more testing and cleanup. Wish it was warmer here in PA so I could keep the backglass in, im afraid of the temperature swings affecting the backglass. Oh well, spring will be here soon.

Thanks your your thoughts

huh. Replay reset only goes thru the left SPDT switch on the replay register and an anti-cheat relay switch. Once the replay reset relay powers, the anti-cheat relay switch is redundant.

nothing on the door plug or the SPST switch on the right of the replay register would affect replay reset.

if you have issues again, check the SPDT switch ... tho if that was flaky, you'd have issues with the buttons working when there's credits.

oh, unless the motors turned off during replay reset, then the problem is just a switch on the replay reset relay ... the one with plastic coated wires.

Ok, Thanks I'll keep this in mind

I thought all you had to do was keep the anti-cheat relay engaged
