I've been searching websites, forums, etc. to figure out if my Bank Shot was scoring properly. All scoring including bonus on ball drain is working as it should. The one thing I did notice however: when you light the special by hitting all the targets/lanes (each target/lane lights up a pool ball number in the center of playfield, and when all 15 balls are lit, the special is achieved). The special does two things: it lights up the two kick-out holes and lights up the #1 lane at top of the playfield. Ball going over #1 lane or hitting either kick-out hole awards a ball as they should. They all stay lit until ball drains, then they should go out. Herein lies the problem. The two kick-out hole specials go out when the ball drains as they should. But, the #1 lane special stays lit, which it shouldn't.

So, I believe when the ball drains, and the "reset" occurs, it's not triggering the #1 lane special to "turn off". Any thoughts on where to start the trouble-shooting process?

chk the settings for conserv or liberal. find out what is supposed to happen.
chk schematic for the center lane light, follow it back to the relay/step that triggers it.
you may have a relay sticking, and not releasing.
if you power it off/on with the lite lit, will it reset and go out?

will check on that Dr. I haven't turned power on/off with WOW lit - so will give that a try and report back. Thanks.

in looking at schematic, the "U" relay was in the path for the #1 lane. Turns out that one of the switches in the stack was staying in closed position upon ball drain and during reset sequence. Opened it up a bit, and now after ball drains and reset occurs, the switch opens & the WOW light goes off as it should. Thanks all for the help!
