Finally getting back to working on my Card Whiz. Work and family obligations come first.

I though I had my Card Whiz working 100% but, quickly discovered that the scoring for player 1 is not scoring collectedly. Player 2 is scoring collectedly. Below is a table of scoring results for player 1. Scores were generated by tripping a switch(s) several time and recording the results after each scoring.

First Scoring
Second Scoring
Third Scoring
Fourth Scoring
Pop Bumpers
First Scoring Second Scoring Third Scoring Fourth Scoring
100 1200 12300 12300

1000 11200 23000 34000

I gotten myself confused. Just when I think I have a handle on the schematic, they slap me back in place. I not sure what to investigate next. The pin resets, ball advances correctly for a 1 or 2 player game. Player 2 scores correctly, Bonus is collected correctly, and the match unit works. I have given looked at but, not yet checked with my DMM the following:
*Score Reels
*N, M, and L relays
*500 and 300 relays

I thought about poking around the score motor but, did not want to start blindly messing with it.

If someone could point me to the correct circuit/switch to investigate I will be very thankful.

It's the "9" switch on your hundreds, thousands, and ten thousands reels. The switch should only be closed when the reel is in the nine position, and that is what tells the next higher reel to turn over.

If P2 scoring is fine, check one of those score reels, and watch the switch positions at 0, 1-8, and 9. Adjust your P1 reels to match.

Hi CaffeineSlug, just had a chance to relook at the switch positions. You are correct. Adjusted the switch a bit and the pin is now scoring collector. Down side is my scores are a lot lower now

Thanks again for the speedy response!

Regards,
Phil
