Hello all, When I start a 1 player 3-ball or 5 ball game, the backbox indicates 3rd or 5th ball. When I drain 1st ball it stays on 3rd ball but now scores for player 4. It then switches back and forth scoring for player 1 then 4 and seemingly never ends. I do not have a schematic and this is a first time repair on EM. I've been through about 100 different titles of SS machines and think I can fix this with your help. Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond.

It sounds like the player unit is not in the correction position at the start of a game. Check the player unit and manually operate/rotate the player unit to make sure it rotates smoothly and "clicks" into each position.

You need to clean all the stepper units - if one is dirty, they are all dirty and sticky.
