It doesn't play harlem globetrotters tune . The dip switches are in the right position. Can someone guide me in the right direction.

I just went there. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/harleem-globetrotters-no-sound

Does it play any sounds?

Check voltages on sound board, redo capacitors, measure test points with logic probe....
Turned out to be a fairly frequent issue with one of the chips (U11) going south.

Report back with results/questions. Lots of helpful peeps here.

Do you remember specifically what you did to the dip switches to make it work?

Try putting dip switches 29 and 30 "on".

Thanks Quench - it's my brother-in-law's machine several states away, but I'll call him with that info and let you know what happens. Thanks!

Quench - thanks for the switch numbers; that worked. My brother-in-law is very happy to hear Sweet Georgia Brown again!
