So I bought this about a year ago, I have a good tech guy locally who fixes EM Machines, and has done a few for me in the past - this Blast Off has us stuck and stumped - previous owners did some hack work, which we're trying to undo. We have a schematic - but some of the wires aren't matching - colors etc. But they are OLD factory wires. So my repair guy took some pics of our problem areas, and we're hoping someone out there who owns this machine or the Apollo version can take some identical pics for us - so we can compare what we have (not working), to someone's pics of a (working) machine. Please take a look at the pics - if you have a Blast Off or Apollo - can you PLEASE PLEASE take some matched photos to what I have uploaded. I'm willing to pay for your time in doing this for us as well. I'm not sure how large a file you can upload here for HI-RES - so I can provide an email address to send if need be. THANKS TONS!!!!!

Another tidbit - the game will reset, run through the cycles as it should and kick a ball out - the issue is, every time you score a point, any point anywhere, the game resets again.
