    Having an issue with my Capt Fantastic. I have the game set to 'free play' but on occasion, when the button is pushed the game will repeatedly add credits. The only way to stop it is to power the game off. Just now I tried to add a credit with the coin mech and it did not add a credit just stepped to 'game over'. Tried the credit button and got the same result. I believe the stuck game over and repeated credits issue is somehow related. Can someone provide some advice?

    Guessing it could be the make/break on score motor 1E

    Hi in2kiss
    do You have paper-tags in Your Captn. Fantastic telling the names of the relays ? Danger - electricity can kill people - Your pin has 110VAC, 48VAC, 6VAC - always toggle-off and unplug the main power cord when You look, work in the pin - for testing You need electricity - then wear rubber gloves for insulation. Look here https://www.ipdb.org/files/438/Bally_1976_Capt_Fantastic_and_The_Brown_Dirt_Cowboy_English_Manual_no_schematics.pdf on page-15 - the almost horizontal armature is the Latch-armature of the Game-Over-Relay, the almost vertical armature is the Trip-armature of the Game-Over-Relay.
    Toggle-off, unplug the main power cord --- press the Latch-armature towards the Latch-Coil. Plug-in, watch the Game-Over-Relay and toggle-on - question: Does the Trip-armature moves ? (It must move means the Game-Over-Relay must trip (((in this situation))).
    If the Game-Over-Relay does not trip: Toggle-off, unplug the main power cord --- do manually trip the G.O.-Relay --- then plug-in and toggle-on.

    Wear rubber gloves - press the armature (manually actuate) of the Credit-Relay - question: Does the pin shows reaction - does the Start-Up procedure happens ?
    If "No": Manually actuate the armature of the Coin-Relay - question: Does the pin shows reaction - does the Start-Up procedure happens ?
    If "No": Manually actuate the armature of the Reset-Relay - question: Does the pin shows reaction - does the Start-Up procedure happens ? Greetings Rolf
