Any time ball lands in any of the three saucers, the reels don't stop spinning. Even after taking the ball out, the score keeps going. Thought it was just a stuck switch on top saucer, but it's all three, and it's not a stuck switch (I don't think).
I am befuddled. Any help greatly appreciated.

Hello?... I always remembered Lionel Richie's appearance at the closing ceremony of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. A very motivational performance...

Anyway, do you have a schematic for the machine? If all the kickout holes/saucers are causing the machine to score continuous points, then it might be an issue with the hole relay. Check the hole relay to see if the switches are operating correctly. If one of the switches on the hole relay is adjusted incorrectly, it could cause the machine to keep scoring when the ball exits the kickout holes/saucers.

If not the Hole relay, there should be a motor switch in series with the Hole relay hold circuit.

Thanks for the tips gentlemen. I do not have schematics for this. But even if I did, I'm guessing they would be in Spanish? I'll check IPBD for them. Gonna check the hole relay today. Thanks again.

I have a manual in English and a schematic that I can barely read its such a poor copy so they must have been available at one time. If you cant find one I could try to make a copy when kinkos reopens. manual is a little vague.

After some Googling, I found an old Pinside thread that Ken Layton posted a link in for Prospector manual and schematics. I had no idea Marco sells them. Thanks Ken!
Man i wish I knew my way around an EM. I played this for hours every night until this happened. Not sure which relay is which.

Can anyone do a FaceTime/Zoom call with me this week to narrow it down?
