Just got a Capt Fantastic to shop out and it is in a really bad state.

I managed to get it working after 7 hrs but occasionally a ball wont "End" in other words it goes into the out hole and doesnt register but a score reel will keep turning and the rest of the game is frozen. I found that if I TILT the game then the game will reset for the next ball.

If I turn the game off and power back on when I press the start button the game will reset and start new.

This can happen at anytime and with any player so I eliminated it being a lone score reel switch.

I cant read the PDF schematics on my computer as they are not clear.

The client does not have a manual and the the labels on all but two relays are gone. I have no idea which relay is the one to look for.

Can anyone give some advice and would anyone have a chart to reference the relay locations?

Your Bonus Unit is getting stuck as that drains at the end of the ball and adds points to the score. Rebuild it or clean it up to get it to move freely and consistently.

Best of luck.

(If that's not it then it's the bonus unit score motor switch but that is very unlikely - if you open the machine and see the unit "struggling" then it's not the score motor switch)

Wont have access to the machine until Fri but I will rebuild the bonus unit and see what happens.
