Just bought a Cosmic Gunfight in pretty good shape. It has a black cabinet.
I got it on the cheap because it will not start game play. I am wondering if this thread is a place to seek help or if you all can suggest another for me to post to here at Pinside. After reading up on it and watching the youtube videos I can't wait to get it up and running again.
I have read through the operator's guide posted for this machine but can't seem to figure out how to solve the following issues:
Issue 1 - when powered up, top left display = "2502 1". From the manual it looks like this is the game identifier and it is in some kind of audit mode. Is this normal for power up? -- the only way I seem to get it to get to the point is should be ready to accept a coin is to run through all the audits pushing the advance button.
Issue 2 - Once I do get the game to the point of receiving coins (adding credits), then press the "game start" button on the upper left area of the front of the cabinet, with credits showing, nothing happens except the credits decrement as though I am adding players to multi-player mode. But no ball is put into the trough. Yes, there are two balls in the machine and down in the "drain area". Flippers work, but no ball getting kicked into the shooter lane.
Sound and System 7 board checkout so far.
Any tips, or direction you can provide is greatly appreciated.
