Hey fellas. Need your help on my aunt's Skylab. My uncle said the machine had problems with scoring the special. I ordered a tuneup kit. New fuses. Waxed it, rubbers, LEDs, joints and reels lubed, contacts adjusted and filed. Played the game and I see what's going on.
So, you can turn it on. No need to start the game. It's in the middle of a neverending game it seems like. The 'SKLYAB' special is already/always spelled out. The horseshoe rocket booster special works. Manually, when all 5 balls go to one side, the knocker goes off and a credit is added to the credit reel. Seems fine.
Then I dropped the ball into the playfield and played. It flips and kicks. Reels and scoring work great.
The problem is when the ball drains. It sends the scoring motor into an endless loop. It just keep going and going. The score doesn't change. The ball never kicks out. It just stays drained with the motor turning. You can manually kick the ball out. The scoring motor stops and you can keep playing the endless game. Score is the same and SKYLAB still spelled out.
I believe the problem is the special scoring. Not sure. Game never resets.
I've attached an 8min YouTube video. I've also attached the schematics. I'll be at my aunt and uncles for the next couple of days. Where should I start? I'll venmo or PayPal a pizza if we can clear this up! Would love to get this thing going. It's been in my aunts family since new.
Just lemme know what you need from me.
