Ok so as far as I can tell game goes through startup routine just fine. Resets 1p and 2p then 3p and 4p etc and kicks ball into shooter lane but playfield and flippers are dead. If I manually put points on score reels it will go through 5 balls and end the game normally too. It just seems to do everything it should but not energize the playfield and flippersl... Any ideas?

Inspect and diagnose this circuit with Alligator clip jumper wires

Thanks. Power is out tonight. I’ll check tomorrow and report back.

Electricity is back on and I checked the circuit. You were dead on. That red/black switch on AX was just not quite making contact. I had adjusted it prior but whoever owned this pin before me did have some leafs mangled a bit. It appeared to be making contact but wasn't. It took me three tries to get it right but I got it and it's now playing normally.

You guys are awesome! HowardR thank you so much!
