We have been working on a Target Alpha that currently won't score points except for the pop bumper (100). Nothing else that scores 100 points or multiples of 100 will work. I don't know how many points the large drop target bank should score, but they don't score anything either. The light for the bonus does come on, so I don't think it's an individual switch issue. The lanes at the top and the middle also score nothing. They only make a sound when the lane is lit, but still no points.

I feel like I have checked every relay and every score motor switch, but I know there has to be an issue somewhere. Any ideas?

True for all players? Did you check the Jones plugs?

This is another issue. We can't get it to go to the next player. It's an endless ball 1 player 1. Could they be related?

When we first got it, all the score reels turned at the same time. Now it will start a game for only player one. It just never ends!

I sanded the jones plugs when we first got it a few months ago, but I'll try to reseat them again. It's got to be something big like that for practically all of the playfield not scoring.

Sounds like a classic latch trip relay issue. The AX Bx whatever X relays.

They suck ass and I hate working on gottlieb multiplayers because of them.

Good luck !

The AX/BX relay is pure evil at times

Unlikely. Work on scoring for now.

I agree unless there is something about certain points that have to be scored before the ball is officially in play and you don't get it back. I don't see anything about that in the manual though.
