Hi Folks,

The tens reel is not advancing on the 2nd player of my Pioneer game. If I hit something that is ten points I get a loud buzzing as the reel wont move and the buzzing stops when I hit the flipper button. Any suggestions for a starting point? I turned the game off and thought I'd wait for some ideas from more seasoned hands before I began. Thanks.

Scoring relays in the head, dirty contacts that drive the reels... know yer L M N relays, work them by hand...

Make sure the EOS switch on the reel is properly adjusted.

Check this switch going into the Ten's relay (N)

That's the EOS switch, right?

Yes, should have noted. I wanted to show wire colors.

Thanks guys. I'll start digging in first chance and start working my way through. I'll let you know how it goes.

Hi Guys. Problem solved. The switch turned out to be fine, but, there was something off in the reel. I took it apart and put it back together a couple of times. While I couldn't see anything out of place, it did the trick. It was already pretty clean as the reels got a cleaning about a year ago (first one ever, if my guess is right.)

I appreciate the input!
