Hello, I transported my SS Joker Poker, our the head back on and plugged all the connectors in. Now when you turn it on, only the backbox lights up and the scores all are zeros but nothing else happens, even if I press the start button. No sound or lights in Playfield. I’ve tried reconnecting connectors and still nothing. I’m not sure where to start? Any ideas. Thank you.

Do the zeros come on immediatly? If so.you have a slam tilt stuck

Yeah. The zeros just pop up and stay. How do you get out of a stuck slam tilt? Sorry, still kind of a newbie.

Well, from what I can test, it’s not the slam tilt? Any other suggestions out there??

So normal boot for sys 1 is a 5 second delay before the displays come on. If they show zeros immediately it is slammed tilted.

Look at this https://forums.arcade-museum.com/archive/index.php/t-234491.html

Okay, well, I guess I don’t know how to get it out of a stuck slam tilt. I made sure all the slam tilts are open but it does the same thing when I turn it on?

You can bypass the slam tilt but it's a little technical. How are you with a soldering iron?

Not too bad. Just not soldering on boards.

You don't necessarily have to solder anything if you're just doing the slam switch mod for diagnostic purposes.

How do you do a slam tilt mod?

Look for a wire disconnected on the roll tilt assembly. Closely check that the switches on it are properly adjusted.

Okay. I will try these things and check back. Thanks all.

So, being a newby in this hobby, I really have no clue how to do a test lead. I read the post, but am pretty clueless. I also looked for any loose wires. Also, I read that the tilt switch on the door and cabinet should be closed and the Playfield should be open on a system 1. I’ve tried turning the machine on with all different combinations of this. It all leads to the same result. Backbox lights on and scores are all zeros and machine does nothing. I’m guessing it’s an easy fix but my very limited knowledge makes it a challenge.

test leads like this: amazon.com link »

then clip one to each side of the capacitor in question

BTW - the slam tilts on a Sys 1 are normally closed. That could very well be your issue.

oops - guess I should have read more before responding.

Let's start at the beginning. Battery damage is a big issue on this platform. This affects the connectors, including the tilt circuit. You don't have any runaway battery corrosion, do you? Don't still have the "Data Sentry" battery on the board?
