Surf Champ Add Replay (resized).jpg

#1 2 days ago

I have a Surf Champ that isn’t awarding replays for reaching replay scores or specials, but it will knock the knocker.
The right side coin chute is also not giving credits, but cycles he score motor.
I don’t have a Schematic, anyone have a good idea of what switch could be keeping the credit unit from stepping up? (It seems to be working right, nothing burnt, and it will subtract credits properly if I add them manually)
Any help appreciated

Does it ever add credits? Like for Special or Match? It might just be that the 15th Position limit switch is stuck open:

Doesn’t add credits any way, but knocks the knocker whenever it should. And doesn’t add credits with right coin switch either, but the left one will start a game/add players.
That switch is closed, but the peg has been moved to make it open at 5 credits.

If the Knocker is behaving correctly you know the signal is getting to the yellow+green wire above. That leaves just the 15th position switch, and any wiring to/from it that might not be working. If you jumper around that switch can you add credits?

This is from the Surfer manual, if Surf Champ has the same Game Adjust may be in that path.

Ok, got it resolved.
The coil was bad, when I checked it before it wasn’t isolated, oops.
Thanks for the help!!
Is a 26-1200 ok to use in there, seems to work fine.

Quoted from DNO:

A 26-1200 is much weaker but if it works go for it. It'll be easier on the transformer and Replay Unit.
