Would appreciate any help with this. I have a Sonic Mars Trek that I've been working on for a while and I'm not sure what else to try to get it working correctly. The main problems I have is that the start button will not start a game. I can add credits with the coin switches and see that they are added to the credit reel. I can manually activate the relays on the relay board to get it to start a game and it will subtract a credit but the ball does not kick out from the trough to the shooter lane, and likely related to that the game will not detect a drain or a ball in either bonus outhole. I can manually activate the outhole relay and it will advance to the next ball and I can get through a game that way. Everything else on the playfield works and scores correctly and the reset relay will zero out all the score reels.
I can activate all the relays on the bottom board and on the bottom of the playfield and they seem to function as they should. I've cleaned the rivets and lubed all the stepper units and they move well.
Some other things I've noticed- I'm not sure why but occasionally after playing with the relays the start button has worked to start a game but I have the same issue with the outholes not activating and I'm not able to reproduce it consistently.
One final concern is that the bonus switches are slow to activate the stepper, meaning if a moving ball passes over a rollover switch too fast it won't fully activate the bonus step up. I can hear it initiate but it won't complete the step up unless the switch is held down for a second or two. Thinking that may be a switch gap issue on the score motor?
I can view the schematic at IPDB but don't have one on hand https://www.ipdb.org/files/1550/Sonic_1977_Mars_Trek_Schematic_Diagram_continuous.pdf
Sorry for the long post. Thank you for reading and for any help with this.
