When I roll over a 500 switch or a Joker I get somewhere between 0 and 100 points. It was working perfectly until someone tilted it aggressively and now it does not work right. I noticed that the "C" relay does not stay energized like it's supposed to for the 500 points. I have a schematic and I thought I knew what to do but I guess I don't. What should I be looking at/for? I just want to go back to playing it!

Hi Eric,
These 3 switches are responsible for holding in the 500 Point (C) relay for a full motor cycle (1/3 of a revolution) which should be enough time to score the full 500 points. Look at them to make sure that on each switch the long blade moves the short blade a little. If you don't see anything obvious then diagnose them with Alligator clip jumper wires.

Oh! What is this?!? Unsurprisingly ANOTHER mystery solved by Howard! I owe you a couple of 6 packs by now. THANK YOU!
