I done I think everything that a newbie should not do and made the pin worst than the way I got it. But after a few hard days of undoing what I done I am back to square one where I 1st started. Once the ball drains, the pin will not add the bonus points or advance the player, but will kick a ball out to play.
I thought that this might be a relay problem, and that is were I got into trouble filing the contacts. I since had to go back and adjust all the contacts to get everything working again.

I'm thinking now that I need to clean the player stepper unit, but thought that it would be best to get some advice first. I got a copy of the schematic and I'm trying to understand it.

manually operate the steppers to see if they are gummed up ,

some great info here http://www.pinrepair.com/em/index2.htm#steps

The steppers I am surprised to say, seem to move freely. I am able to adjust the steppers and reset the game only to have the steppers reset at the start of a game.

Well, I had a bit of luck last night. Not sure what I did, but I did get the player and ball to advance while I lost the ability to use the flippers or play field switches. Of course after turning on the pin this morning I'm right back to where I started.

Nip-it is a multi-ball game. This might seem obvious but... how many balls did you put in? It needs TWO.

Check your Bonus unit zero position switches. They determine whether or not a bonus has been counted down before ejecting the ball.

Thank you edednedy for your suggestion. I took a look at the bonus unit and didnt see anything wrong. So I decided to clean the rivets. Once I done that, the score motor would run none stop. Resetting the bonus unit stopped the score motor from running. After that the player and ball started advancing.
Thank you for your suggestion!
