I am pretty new to pinball machines but I now own a 1976 Williams Aztec. Bought the game in pretty good shape - everything worked - but then I started to change some of the bulbs and problems started.
First Problem: When I would start Ball 1 at the start of a game - the Bonus would light up the 10,000 Bonus instead of the 5,000 Bonus. But when the ball is over and it is adding up the score - the proper Bonus would be added. So if the 15,000 Bonus light was on when the ball ended - The score would increase by 10,000.
Second Problem: When I push the button to start a new game - the first ball would come up and the Ball in Play light would immediately shift to Ball 2.
Third Problem: When I push the Start button again to try to get a multi-player game started - The game resets back to a one player game and Problem 2 starts all over again.
I am pretty decent at fixing things but not yet great at figuring out how all these coils and relays work in a pinball machine. Watching a lot of YouTube videos helps but all games look so different to me. And reading some of the past Forums help but again I am not expert at the terminology and I get lost. As best I can tell - I might have a problem with the Ball Count Unit Disc not re-setting properly and then maybe with the Coin Disc or Player Unit Disc or Bonus Unit. Just not sure what to check first. It all looks okay underneath - no loose wires. I am hoping I just hit something when I was changing bulbs that can be reset.
I know for a guy from Massachusetts I sure created a lot of Problems but any help would be appreciated.
