Hello,
I have Dirty Harry set to free play. All of the sudden, I get nothing when I hit the start button? Any suggestions? Thank all.

Maybe batteries are bad and game went back to factory settings.

Does it say free play still?
Try opening the door and putting credits on.
Try testing the start button in switch test mode
go grab a hotdog.

Tests - Switch Edge - does it register on the DMD when you hit the button ?

Drop a quarter in.

So the start button works, but when you start a game, it does not kick out a ball. Could the trough opto boards be bad or dirty?

Thsts what switch test mode is for. Take the balls out, test modes see if the trough is reading anything. Then put the correct number of balls in and see is all the switches activate

Before you press start I think you have to say “Do I feel lucky?? Well, do I???” Then press start and the game will go.

Sorry, had to do it.

Right number of balls in the ball trough and all accounted for ?

Shouldn't it be, "do you feel lucky punk ?"

Is fuse f104 good on the power driver board? Make sure to take it out to test it.
