I pick up a Gottlieb El Dorado yesterday.

The guy had everything gone through 10 years ago & then it sat for the last 5 years.

Only some light come on in backglass... tilt is lit. No pf lights.

Nothing happens when credit button is pressed.

When I tap start relay on bottom of cabinet... there is a loud buzz & it won't stop until I turn off power. All quiet when powers back on.

I've cleaned 3 Jones plugs in backbox.

Any help appreciated.

How is the A/X relay switches look? The first relay labled A in the bottom panel. Those switches have to be aligned right on.

PF lites likely this 10A fuse. And this is the start seq. for Target Alpha, but it's likely the same; follow it along.
