I have a old 1968 royal guard pinball machine and it will not read specials. When red special light at top is on it does not read any points. as well as special targets near bottom only when special is lit it wont read points it dose nothing everything else works just when special light comes on it will not read points for that special

I'm pretty sure when Special is lit, it will only reward the free game and not points for the lit target/rollover (the targets are labeled Special OR 50 points.

Special does not reward free game does nothing?

it wont' award a free game if your credit stepper is all jacked up from someone setting it to free play.

Everything else on the board still scores tho right? Just not the special spots?

Have to agree with this, also to add the folowing.

If the Credit Wheel and/or the switch contacts have been adjusted to maximum credits, the game can not reward a credit.

You could do this.

Change the game back to Coin Up. Have the first High Score Reward set low. In order to keep games on the Credit Unit.
Those 'Special When Lit" targets and roll over should work. Who doesn't like the thud of the Credit Knocker.
