Should have added.
Fuses all checked and correct
Tried jumping some Playfield coils and nothing.

I would check tilt switches

If you look thru the relays in the manual - available here: https://www.ipdb.org/files/649/Williams_Dealer_s_Choice_manual.pdf - you'll see that some 'open circuits to playfield switches,' so check those. Also could be Jones plugs or the bridge rectifier (or its fuse).

Check these 3 switches on the Game Over, Reset, and Tilt relays.

Yup , check the game over and reset coil switch stack . Just had this exact issue on a Captain fantastic . Game would start normal but only the gi lights would work . Turned out a little hunk on one of the game over switch stacks . Clean up and manual triggered a few times and game came back to normal . Not saying that’s the issue but worth a shot

Ok, now have the game starting with the following Problems

Ball will not eject to shooter lane
Manually install 1st ball game places and scores correctly
Ball drains and does not eject or move to ball 2.

Thanks

What did you do?

Quoted from Kickout:

Ball drains and does not eject or move to ball 2.

Check score motor sw. 4D. The action of the ball moving across to the shooter lane will advance the ball count.

Re-cleaned and Re- checked all the Game Over switched and the game is now operating.
Thanks to everyone for their help

Have this same problem on a 60s Gottlieb. All GI works, ball serves up, score reels seem find BUT the bottom half of the playfield all coils dead.
Checked fuses and fuse holders.
Checked out the plugs extensively.
seems like Ive been through the game several times at least up to the point of feeling like the fuses, tilts, and plugs are not involved but is it possible Ive missed a tilt? If I did wouldn't all coils be quiet on the playfield?
Resistor and/or Bridge Rectifier bad?
Actually I forgot if its a resistor or a bridge Rectifier but I do have the top half of Playfield and head coils working.
oh and its a Hurdy Gurdy
Thanks in advance
