    If you name your Bingo and give a brief account of what exactly happen, there are many guys here
    who will attempt to help you.
    I would check all your fuses first, then verify you have all your voltages.
    If you don't have a schematic....... buy one, so you learn as you go.

    ok..It's a Bally Cypress Gardens Bingo pinball 1958 ....Everything was working fine....Ran out of games, opened the door and pressed down on the tiny lever many times where the coin drops thru to get more games....The balls dropped down but no games registered.....Everything lights up but start button does nothing...Fuses are good and I have a schematic but I it's Greek to me....Any ideas? Thanks..

    Hi Jim."Putting" a coin in the machine will not
    advance your game counter.
    When you put a coin in, the balls should drop(no buttons
    to press). Make sure that the "Extra Ball" button (Yellow)
    is not pressed,if it is, you would see the "Extra Ball" lite.
    If the balls drop, and one ball is lifted up to be "shot", it
    should be game on.
    If you had games built up on you game counter and you
    could play your game(s), all should be good.
    Putting a a coin in "should" have accomplished
    the same thing.

    Is a ball lifted to the playfield when you strum the coin switch for the first time? If one is, the game behavior you described is normal. Inserting another coin (or strumming the coin switch as you are doing) should result in the backglass flashing and the occasional advance of odds and other features. Basically, the game is allowing you to insert more coins in return for a bigger payoff if you have a winning game. If a ball is in the ball lane, shoot it. If no ball was ever lifted to the playfield, you do have a real problem that folks here will help you with.

    Just for the record.........I never use the Coin Slot. They are usually a source of trouble.
    I just put Games on the Counter manually by actuating the lever.
    **** It sounds like you just ran out of Games.
