OK. When I turn it on, the latching relays latch and the Game Over light comes on. There are credits on the game and the credit light is on. Pushing the start button does nothing. If I manually trip the start relay, the score motor turns, the reels all go to zero and the score motor keeps on turning while the reset relays for Player 1-2 and Player 3-4 chatter endlessly. I would guess this means something is not telling the score motor that the scores have been reset.

I have inspected/cleaned all score reels and found a few loose wires that were then resoldered where they belong. At a bit of a loss as to where to look next and am taking all advice. Will get some video to post after I pause for lunch. Thanks in advance!

PS, Sonic is Williams based if that helps.

Got to where I can start the game with the button but it still won't finish the start up sequence. Had to disconnect the 100pt relay. It was staying on constant and I cannot figure out why.

I have the schematic and the original manual.

Checked and double checked. Found one pop bumper had the switch held shut. Fixed the switch, didn't solve the problem.

When I start it up, the game is at "Game Over." Starts, as you can see, but never pulses the ball eject to the shooter lane. When it drains, the bonus will count off but no pulse to the ball unit to advance to the next ball, ball does not move to the shooter lane, etc. I would be happy to rig it to where it will play continuous balls so folks could try the game while other people watch it work. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Yeah, the player unit is a problem all right. The brass teats for the contacts on the back are heavily divoted and it takes a lot of spring pressure to over come it and return the unit to zero. If I wind the center spring tight enough to do that it is too tight for it to be able to step up. Can I sand the divots out or is it toast?

Thanks, guys. I have a good check list now that I will get on once I return from the Houston show. I am sure that being a little more relaxed without an impending deadline I will be able to resolve this and get this sucker up and fully functional.
