    Hi everyone. Again in my 76 Gottlieb Volley, the match lights won't light up at end of game. I checked all the bulbs and they aren't burned out. Match system does work because I can here the knocker hit at end of game ( when it does match ). Any ideas sure can help...thanks

    Hi. Do you mean schematics?

    #5 2 years ago

    Where is the game over relay?

    #8 2 years ago

    Good choice on both of you. I'll get back.

    #9 2 years ago

    Yes, the game over light comes on.

    #11 2 years ago

    Great pic of the schematics.

    #12 2 years ago

    Got the match light to "light", but it always reads 00. Doesn't change.

    #15 2 years ago

    Thanks. I will take look. I might get back to you pin guys in case I can't find the FS stepper. Were would it be?

    #17 2 years ago

    Thanks everyone. The match system works because when it matches I can hear the knocker hit meaning free game, but the matching lights just won't come on.

    DeMoib, the FS stepper won't move when I hit the middle bumper. Seems to be gummed up. What's the best way to clean it?

    #22 2 years ago

    Thanks. Will let you know.

    I tightened the spring, but I mostly have to push into place the plastic arm that turns the plastic wheel or axle.

    #25 2 years ago

    I have the FS relay pulled out and the tension bars aren't applying too much pressure on the discs.

    #26 2 years ago

    Also when I force the plastic arm back in to its proper position there is a click from one of the relays in the cabinet.

    #28 2 years ago

    Sure. I'll take a picture and try to post it.

    Did you get it ?

    Also, here is that coil that won't fire and reset the bank.

    Is the A relay suppose to move everytime the middle bumper is struck? Because the lever with the spring on is sometimes still touching the white coil, therefore not putting the plastic arm back in position.

    Got the sandpaper.

    #36 2 years ago

    Never solved it. Trying to do too much. But you're correct, the match can wait. I checked the fuses, all are good. What was the switches again for that bank relay?

    #39 2 years ago

    For the sequence bank reset,I can't find a1amp fuse anywhere.

    #40 2 years ago

    I found it, but it looks okay. It has a wire coming from each end of the fuse.

    #42 2 years ago

    fuse is good, arm is attached to the plunger or coil. all moves freely. what else should I do?

    #43 2 years ago

    i'm at work so I have to be careful. don't want the boss to catch me.

    I tinkered last night "with the pinball" and the problem is as you said with the Q relay. When I triggered it the bank reset coil wouldn't work. I tested the copper fingers and when I push a certain one it fired the reset target coils and the main bank coil.

    #48 2 years ago

    Thanks, I've been shocked before. I had quite a few EM'S before. Problem is with the Q relay if I push on one of the points it will fire both the target banks and the main reset bank. But if I hit the game play button it won't trigger the main reset coil. Once again, thanks about my safety.

    #49 2 years ago

    Any ideas about the Q coil. Where the positions of the points should be? Thanks.

    #54 2 years ago

    Thanks.do you about the Q relay?

    #57 2 years ago

    I'm trying to get any help. I know the main bank reset coil works. If I push on one of the contacts on the Q relay, the main bank coil fires. Could it be one of the points are not properly set? What positions should they be in.?
