I just acquired a Chicago Coin TV Baseball that has many problems.
The score motor and animation unit keeps running on power up.
I manually reset the top and bottom relay bank and the problem went away for a time
but of course, it’s happening again.
When I press the replay button Player 2 is immediately activated and the machine completely freaks out.
The 1, 2, 3 “Outs” keeps cycling non stop.
On the backglass a random number will show up for 0 - 9, this may be a match play number?
Maybe the “Player Control and Outs Unit” is not at zero position?
The Player Controls and Outs Unit seems like it wants to move but doesn’t. If engage the coil clockwise and turn on the machine it will advance seven rivets counter clockwise.
The bonus control unit moves on power up.
I’ve activated some relays and at times I’ll get some life in the machine.
I can occasionally pitch and bat and the men ran around the bases too but this lasted a minute.
I made a video (Youtube is still processing it) that'll I'll post later.
The Play Control moves about 4 rivets and the Animation Unit did not move as it did in another video I took.
So happy to finally have a pitch and bat.
This is my first Chicago Coin machine.
I’m waiting on the schematic I ordered although I’m not the best at reading it.
I’d appreciate any help to bring this machine back.
