I recently acquired Guns N Roses and have a problem I’m having trouble figuring out. Any advice would be appreciated.
For those who aren’t familiar with this pin, one of the features on the field is a bank of individual 555 type bulbs which spell out the word R O S E S (there is also a G U N S above). These bulbs are lit in sequence by shooting the R ramp.
When I turn the pin on and we go through the attract lighting (pulsing, rotation of all bulbs on the field), the O bulb does not illuminate when all others do.
When I start a game, all the lights (including O, which is now working) will pulse on and off as the first ball is loaded for firing.
What is supposed to happen as we begin play is the first letter (R) starts flashing, pending being lit solid by hitting the ramp.
When you hit the ramp, that flashing letter will turn light solid, and the next letter in the sequence should begin to flash.
So we begin…
R flashes. Hit ramp. R lights.
O doesn’t start flashing as it should.
Hit ramp. O does not light.
S starts flashing - then O decides yes, I’ll wake up now, time to light up!
Hit ramp. S lights. E starts flashing - so back to regular service.
O will then behave normally until the game ends.
I changed the bulb. and switched out the connector/bulb with an adjacent one, same symptoms.
If anyone has any pointers I would be most grateful!
