I know these have kind of a bum wrap, but I have to say, it's one of the simplest and cleanest machines I've ever opened up!

That said, I've no clue where to start with this thing. It gets power, and you can actually shoot the ball and flip the flippers, but it doesn't actually start a game or anything. It's the strangest behavior. I haven't done any removal of boards or anything, but I just wanted to see if anyone with more experience than I know know what might even allow it to behave this way.

I'm hoping to get to it this week, so any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

When I had one,the research I did was the main mpu chip which is most likely the problem ,is impossible to get and no one at this time plans on making it.

Yes mine did all the same things yours is doing.

Mother of God!!

Looks like they have just the 40 pin chips, as well, so maybe I don’t need a whole board
