After putting CV back together I have one problem that I never did before, and I'm looking for suggestions.
When I power on the game, the ringmaster cycles for a few minutes and winds up erroring and saying no reverse direction. Once it errors the game actually plays OK, but it's still throwing the error.
I run through the ringmaster tests and it looks like top, middle, and down switches register when I manually run the head in both directions. Not sure what else to check.
It was working before I shopped the machine. I didn't break down the ringmaster assembly, so I don't think anything could have broken or gone missing.
