I just received my first pinball machine and it's a top score (1975) that's not currently in working condition
To give you a heads up I'm a novice but trying to learn. Trying to make this my hobbie project. I also do not
know much history of the machine. I'm pretty sure the playfield lights have been replaced though, as well as
the fuse hub (maybe fuses too).
Currently when I hit the power switch at the bottom of the machine all I get are most of the backbox lights
turning on as well as the coin lights (except player 2 lights). The tilt light is also on. I don't hear see/hear
any motors or steppers doing anything, just the typical electrical buzzing of electronics.
So far I have tested the fuses with a multimeter and they seem to be in fine. I think I found the bounce switch
and I did a continuity test on that and its closed which it should be according to the schematics (I think).
I'm new to reading schematics and may be getting a bit ahead of myself but it looks like the tilt issue needs to be
solved before I can get the playfield lights to turn on according to the schematics.
I was wondering if I should be getting any signs of life from the motors/steppers even though I have a tilt issue
somewhere? Or is the tilt light on because I likely have other problems that need to be solved first? Or perhaps
some power issue?
Any help with getting some more signs of life my pinball machine would be great! If I haven't given enough
information feel free to ask more questions. I've probably left some important things out since I'm still new
