Its like it wants to play a game. Turned on yesterday, first time in a while, played a great 5 ball game, then couldn't make it through a second.
Foxy just keeps resetting, takes a minute to go thru cycle, looks like all is good, play one ball, resets again.
Beginning to think its the large silver capacitor in bottom of cabinet.
Any help on this older Game Plan cocktail appreciated. 1978

Is that an aftermarket MPU with battery removed? Often times issues like you're experiencing can be battery corrosion issues.

Great site for Gameplan troubleshooting if you have not yet found it:

The mpu isnt after market. But battery was always mounted to side of cabinet. Ill get more pictures later today. I did solder in remote battery because that 3.5 lithium was dead.
Thank you for the link! Ill check into it.

Have you checked voltage to the MPU? It must be at least 5 VDC. If it is out of spec, there might be a trim pot to adjust. At least my Night Moves has one. Not sure about Game Plan....
