Well, my Pinbot is almost done. So close I can taste it but I have run into a problem. Everything works. Going through all the tests each lamp, solenoid, switch, sound, display - everything works however, when I power up the machine with the coin door closed I get the "adjust failure" message. If the coin door is open I get the message "factory setting" Nothing happens after either of these messages appear.
If I run the machine through all the tests and it goes into game over mode I can then deposit a coin and the credit number will advance. When I press the button to start a game the display says "Ball waiting" but there is no ball waiting. If I repeatedly press the start button eventually the game will start, however it does not kick out a ball. I manually touch all the switches as if it is playing and all is well. When I touch the left or right drain switch I get the usual indication that the ball was lost but the display still shows ball 1. The game never ends!
Anyone have any ideas where to start? I have just about exhausted my knowledge and ability at this point. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!
