I have a Playmatic game called the Raid,The drop targets don't reset
at all (even at the start of a new game) and the kick out holes also do
not work.I can manually push the relay switch and they will all work
though.Do you have any Ideas on where I should be looking.Thanks
http://www.ipdb.org/search.pl If you don't have a manual, you can find a German one here with schematics in English and Spanish.
I'm not sure what to tell you. Assuming the relay is soldered to a board, I would reflow the solder points for it, same as other relay soldered to board issues.
And you'll need to figure out the transistor driving that relal. Is it good or bad, is it receiving a signal to fire it. And work your way up stream.
I'd also be sure connectors are in good shape, any IC's that are socketed, be sure they are in tight, sockets good, legs not tarnished.
I'm sorry I can't help much beyond the basics. I've never worked on a Playmatic game.
