Quoted from pinzrfun:
When you start a game, aren't the general illumination playfield lights coming on too?
I'm not aware of any kind of self-check way to turn them all on like later electronic games -
Fun game, I had a nice one, but only have room for so many....
Yes most of them except for the player and ball in use etc that are not lit.
I am just swapping the score lamps with all the other none lit ones.
Only issue with that is that until the lamps need to come on you wont know if you have a bad connection etc. So will just have to play it and work out which lamps should be on at a particular time.
Yes I am enjoying restoring this one compared top the Locomotion and Firepower that we have on the go. So looks like I prefer the EMs
This is just a hobby for us too and just wished we had got into this earlier before the UK prices just went through the roof
