I'm going through with a good cleaning of my Gilligan's Island. I haven't played it since I got it and went straight into cleaning mode.
While cleaning I'm testing the different coils, motors etc. The previous owner had disconnected the island motor, unbeknownst to me until I was elbow deep in the game. I went into test mode and the island works fine for the first two or three steps (turns, stops, locks the island, moves on) until partway through the test the game just resets.
Another issue is that there's a credit dot that says the island opto's aren't working, yet the island starts and stops during test mode, so I'm not sure what that's about.
Any help with the resetting issue would be great.
