Hi, I have acquired a surfer and upon start up...
Score reels reset to zero, target banks reset.
Ball ejects into launch lane.
Point are continuously added (seems like 500s)
and bonus is increased until the bonus unit reaches its end
points are still added. I checked everything I could think of
any suggestions,FYI I have no schematic,yet
Thanx

Check anything, such as your outlane switches, that score 500 to see if they're gapped correctly and not stuck.

Hi, Thanx I was thinking the same thing and I checked them all more than once they are all open and not stuck.
I check every switch that adds points

Upon further check...
One side lane (500) add bonus and extra bonus is constantly lit,
the scoremotor is running constantly while point are being added.
The score motor stops for a split second after its initial reset upon pressing the credit button.
I checked the switch many times there is no contact
Any ideas???
Thanx

Quoted from Jho928:

Check for a short, a solder drip, etc.

Some how I found it, I think a bunch of wires was pressissing on one of the top lane switches. I didnt see it cause I had to move wires to check.
but when I released the bunch they cause the switch to short.
