Game goes though the ball count just fine, but the numbers do not come up on the backglass. I was thinking that it had to do with the Q relay but no luck. What else should I be looking at? I included a pic of the wiper in the back because I have a feeling it has to do with the issue... Thanks for any help!

With game on pull up on the spring loaded shoe that controls ball count light and see if you can get a ball count bulb to light. I think you need to do the following.

I would cleane the rivets on that unit...alcohol and scotch brite pad. Then very sparingly lube(I use Superlube)a few of the rivets and manually work the unit up/down to spread the lube. The shoe bottoms(contacts w/springs that rotate around unit) should also be cleaned(I use a flexstone file)and make sure they move freely...no gunk from keeping them moving up and down as they rotate.

Make sure the shoes are centered in the middle of rivets at each movement, if not you can loosen the 3 screws on the Bakelite piece in that rotates around and rotate right/left to make sure centered. Good luck.

Quoted from DK:

you've checked the bulbs I assume

Check the player unit. What you're looking for should be on the left side of the schematic in the 6V section - find your ball number lights and check wiring and everything associated.

Check the make/break switch on the Game Over relay (typically the 'Q' relay).

And make sure those copper-braided wires are attached well to the wiper disc fingers on the Player Unit you've pictured.
