    Bank A Ball SS relay (resized).jpg
    #1 1 year ago

    Had this thing in storage 12 years, used to power on and play but CANNOT get to power on when I hit start button

    We have been through EVERYTHING with multimeter, continuity everywhere, yes slam switches, power switch, start button, we scrubbed down the Jones connectors real good, but still NO dang power, all 5 balls in

    ANY ideas?

    ANY help most appreciated and thank you

    Does it fire up if you manually trip the SS/Start relay in the trip relay bank in the bottom of the cabinet? If so, almost any of the switches shown here could be at fault.

    Beware that the entire circuit runs at 120 volts AC so unplug the game before poking around the circuit.

    If you manually trip the SS relay, do you get 120 VAC between the red and white wires at the transformer?

    we do indeed, but will look again, thank you

    If you're getting 120VAC in, you should be getting 24VAC out and the R/120V Hold relay should fire. If not the 10A fuse on the 24V transformer output might be bad.

    At the risk of overstating the obvious, that doesn't mean anything unless you removed the fuse from the holder to measure it.

    With power off, I would locate all the bounce and slam switches at bottom of cabinet, under playfield, on coin door and double check they are all closed and making good contact not only by eye but with a meter. Has been the culprit for me more than once when machine doesn't power up.
