I'm 99% finished working on my Bon Voyage. Damn those lamp holders. I have so many minor lamp issues...flickering or mechanically not staying seated. It is driving me nuts. I have two just below the score reels that I can not get to stop flickering. Any suggestions?
My credit lamp is working properly, but it is flickering a good bit. Meaning, without ball play, the bulb gets dim then brighter, then dim and then brighter. Yes, I tried new bulbs. I looked at the schematic and gently cleaned the contact on the credit wheel. Problem is still there. I looked deeper and I notice the wire colors indicated on the schematic are correct on the credit wheel, but not on the playfield. I looked at my Air Aces and the same thing has happened there. I'm not sure I want to track down this new wire pair after I finished working on the machine. But the flickering is driving me nuts. When I look at it with my meter, it is going between 6V and 5.5V. But it is not doing it at the credit wheel switch. I'm sure it is a dirty jones plug.
Anyone have any insight? See schematic with notes below.
