Hello to all!

I have a Captain Fantastic on which the lights from the "match" on the back box 10,20,30, 40... stopped being lit at the end of the game. Any ideas on what to check to get these lights back on?

PS. Extra game is awarded if a match occurs, the lights are the only issue.

Many thanks as usual!

Best,

Start by checking contacts on the 'Game Over' relay. Also check 'Match Adjust' is on.

Those crummy Bally head connectors are always a suspect when this kind of thing happens. I always "crimp" the female connectors in a little bit.

Found it... it was one of the Jones connector from the main cabinet to the head...!

But now another issue came up (this use to work before...sigh)

The 3 (or 6) lights from the top left and right rollovers don't lit now... I checked the "alternate-relay" under the playfield and the switches seemed fine but the lights won't come on even when I manually close (or open the leafs).

Any other places that I should check?

Many thanks again!

Use Alligator Clip jumper wires to check this circuit.
