    Hi All - so I'm restoring a Speakeasy 4 and have it all done except for a weird issue. The match/ball display doesn't show up even though the display is working 100% in test mode. See pics. Sometimes during attract mode it does show "00" but goes off when you start a game. WEIRD!

    1st pic is at start up in attract mode

    Then shows in attract mode "sometimes"... when the "Match" light is on

    Are you using a Alltek, set to free play?

    No it's a standard MPU board

    Well, there are many things that can cause this, but in my experience a lot of display-weirdness issues are due to connector issues, generally broken or corroded spring-clips in the female-side (I'm going to assume you've already tried a display swap to exclude that you're not talking cold-solders on the male-side). The problem with the "Display Test is OK" diagnosis is that all displays are being driven by the same digits at the same time, and some problems only show up when each display is driven separately as in Attract Mode or in-Game mode.

    Try popping out the wires from the credit-display connector one-by-one (you can just use a small jeweller's screw-driver to push the tiny spring-clip down and pull the wire out): You may find one or more bad ones that way.

    I've checked all the cables and everything seems ok. Yes I have swapped out the display as well.

    So works fine in self test and Match feature - just not when it should show what Ball you're on.

    Where does it get the "ball data" from?

    This is an add-a-ball game.
    Look along the bottom of your backglass. There are lights telling you how many balls are left to play.
    There is no "ball in play" on the display you're expecting it to be at on this game - those digits are only for the match feature.

    I just thought it would show you on the display as well....lol
