Working on fixing an issue with my Flying Chariots. If I turn the power on from the outlet strip and hit the Start button, the game will reset and play normally through all 5 balls and go into Game Over mode. At that point, the Start button will no longer do anything. Turn the power off and back on and the Start button will work and allow exactly one game to be played, then stop working again.

Anyone have any thoughts on where to look for this? I'm thinking it's a relay switch but where? It can't be the reset bank, since that doesn't get reset until late in the game start sequence and the Start button has already worked by then. The only things that could get dropped out by a power cycle would be a regular relay I'd think. I'll start plowing through the schematic but figured I'd toss it out there in case someone's already solved the same problem.

You'd have to look at the circuit that contains the start button on the schematic? Guessing there might be some dirty contacts on the game over relay, coin relay or tilt relay. If you tilt the machine during say ball 2, can you restart another game after the machine is tilted?
