Quoted from DeathHimself:
It does sound like the turn table cable wire issue, did you zip tie any wires underneath there at all? Semi lift the playfield and go into test function of the turn table let the motor rotate it and see if the wire tightens up like a guitar string.
Guys thanks so much for the help diagnosing so far.
Here is what I emailed Chas after he mentioned to do a turntable motor test. I’m still at a loss for what is going on. Any more help would be greatly appreciated.
“ Hi Chas - it appears both optos spin, until they lockup. “Too many consecutive errors” is the exact wording of the error message I receive during the turntable motor test.
I removed the ‘Driven Geneva Wheel, Mini-PF’ PN 545-9914-00 and was able to freely turn the turntable by hand. During the startup of the machine the turntable turns slightly left gets stuck then turns slightly right. When looking with the playfield lowered it gets stuck right between the bat phone and the bat mobile, with neither aligning properly towards the magnet for a target shot.
It doesn’t appear to be hanging up on any wires. My guess would be it’s either one of the three white plastic pieces coming from the bottom of the wooden circle rubbing against the circular metal bracket. Which would mean its possibly out of balance/miss aligned? Hard to tell when the playfield is life’s and all of the weight of the mech is on the back.
Or possibly the motor ‘Assembly, Motor & Caps, 24 VDC / 20 RPM’ PN 511-7886-00 is failing?
Having said all of the above, after removing the Driven Geneva Wheel, spinning the mini playfield by hand, and reassembling, I was able to get a few games in with the turntable functioning properly. However on my fourth game it locked up again.”
