What is the start up sequence for a 1962 Trade Winds? I have found one for the later EMs but nothing that fits for this title. Knowing this might help me fix the my machine. The problem I'm having is everything goes fine on start except the ball release coil stays stuck open and no flipper or playfield action. If I manually hit the game relay on the rest bank its all good from there. Got the schematic to work with, but I sure would like to know the start up sequence too. Any help is appreciated.

I got everything sorted except the ball release arm soleniod stays engaged. Can't figure how to get it to cycle off. Fun game to play.

can you take a few pictures of the offending part and post them so we can see what you are talking about?

I think I can. Before and stuck open. Thanks.2015_02100001.JPG2015_02100003.JPG

ok, it looks like it is trying to open at least...

have you checked real closely to ensure that the arm is not mechanically binding?

I've checked for mechanical binding and its free. If I press the "game " relay on the reset bank the solenoid will release. I tried the 9 volt battery test and the relay will activate.

Success! It is the 1 point relay that is the event that signals the game relay to activate and that signals the ball trough arm to close. The culprit in my case was the black white wire in the back box junction block had come undone. 2015_02120002.JPG
