Restoring my Hollywood Heat machine, new rubber, lights and fixed a switch on my drop down targets that didn't score so it didn't reset (ground wire to 1 target fell off). Both banks had previously worked well with the exception of the one switch. I played 20 games (worked perfectly), then I replaced a light socket and lost both banks reset function.
- I have power to both coils
- Switches show closed when I close them during test mode
- it sounds like a relay activates when both sets are knocked down but coils to not fire.
- Coils do not fire during test mode - What coil number should I see when the test tries to fire the coil?

What 'tells' the banks to reset?

Thanks for any help, - just got word that my new Hot Wheels machine shipped tonight and I will have it tomorrow.

Also - Scoring works for initial sequence. 1,000 for each target and 10,000 bonus for all three, however it does not advance the progressive bonus. 10,000 for first all three down, 20,000 for 2nd time all three down, 30,000 for 3rd etc. I'm sure the progressive advancement is moved by whatever triggers the reset. just trying to figure what that is.
