Thank you everyone, I truly appreciate your help!. I'm just learning about the unit now. been doing a lot of cleaning and finding jumped wires. From what I'm thinking. It was an arcade game years ago and repair guys back then hot wired things to keep them running. Now to undo those repairs and find out why they were done. And yes Darcy, you are correct. It does have a cage over the transformer. Pretty cool actually.. The machine was on ebay. I asked the seller some details. They told me it's been sitting in storage for over 15 years. That got my attention so I purchased it. It's in decent shape. The cabinet is yellowed I would assume from being in smoke filled places years back. Also found some 43 year old gum underneath...LOL....... I'm new to EM, so I'm not as experienced as you guys. So please bare with me. If I have any questions. Would it be okay to ask you as I proceed?

Hey Guys

Looking for some insight. Have trouble with El Dorado. trying my best to fix the problems but it seems to be getting worse. I cleaned all the steppers and Jones Connectors Both male and female. The 10 Target will not reset, the 5 Target does. I use jumpers from the 5 target to the 10 and it works. But try from the G Relay and nothing.

Also. Hit the little coin bar and it jumps 3 games every time. I moved the peg and does not correct itself. And, When I hit the start button, only thing that works is the playfield light come on and the 5 target relay jumps. Flippers work, rollovers work, rubber contacts also work. The game will not reset. Score reels will not reset. But hit the relay bank and things "do" work. Just not the 10 target.

What am I doing wrong? Transformer is on "normal"

The seller told me it hasn't been turned on since the 80s. It is dirty and cleaning up nice. Just wont run correctly. I know it must be me, just can't figure it out..... Any direction I need to start from?

Thank you Howard,

I'll do my best to follow your instructions. Mark G who is "most" kindly mentioned something about shotgunning. I guess I've got a lot to learn still. Gets frustrating. It's like one step forward and two back. I just read the link you so graciously posted. I did just what it said "not" to do! Lessen learned. I'm almost ready to give up. But will go back in and try again. I'm going to read more of the links you sent and cross my fingers......
