Hey there,
Picked up my first EM today and just having some trouble getting a game to start. No experience with EMs and haven't even played many but do have a basic understanding of electronics etc. Not sure where to begin but playfield lights up fine, vari-targets reset when a coin goes through the coin mech but other than this the game doesn't do much. This probably isn't much help in diagnosing but let me know any other details that might help and I'll find them out quick smart, keen for a game!

Thanks, Tom

Thanks for the reply. A bit of that's over my head!

Quoted from frb:

Does the reset relay trip on bottom board.

Do you mean the AB relay? And what do you mean by 'trip'?

Quoted from frb:

Does score motor turn.

Yes.

Quoted from frb:

Does player unit in head advance any.

Not sure what you mean by this, but the machine is a one player if you're referring to multiple players.

Quoted from frb:

Does score motor run continuously.

No

Quoted from frb:

In the startup state a series of functions (well documented on web) happen. Then finally the bank resets on the bottom board that returns the reset relay to the off position. Under that short bank there is a switch that is opened and closed by the reset relay that you must flip bank over by loosening wing nuts.

Is this referring to the AB relay and it's switch? If so what exactly needs to be adjusted?

Thankyou very much, Tom
