Hi all.
Go easy on me if asked before, did look... honest!!

My machine is resetting as it should and kicking ball into lane but isn't registering ball 1 or starting game as it should, ie.. bumpers not energized. If I let ball drop through flippers for around 10-20 times it might eventually start?
Any thoughts guys?

Should be a switch that gets made when ball enters shooting lane. Maybe just needs adjusting.

There's probably a Ball Count stepper unit in the head that might need cleaning or adjustment.

There is a rollover switch in the ball trough that can be accessed by lifting the playfield up. It is NOT the one in the outhole, but rather to the right a little bit. Make sure it is adjusted correctly and clean. It's one of the easier switches to come out of alignment. You need to not only make sure it activates by hand but rather by the ball's sole weight because that does not push down quite as far.

Sorted it....... RESULT!!
I removed the apron and saw the ball was riding over that piece of wire very fast so I reshaped the wire and re-adjusted the contacts below. It's working great now, best it's ever been since I purchased it....

Thx guys.

One thing I'm learning fast on these EM's is that on some relay contacts it's all or nothing, needs to be set bang-on!!
