I'm having a few issues with a Little Chief I picked up a few months ago.
Right now the biggest cause of problems seems to be on startup. The tens reel on the 1st player position seems to have a hard time resetting, the score motor runs and runs and the tens real just kinda clicks in place until it eventually advances to zero after some struggle. I looked at the reel and mechanically it all seems to be working, in fact when you play a game it works great and always keeps track of your score.
Is there a reason why it would advance properly during a game but not on startup?
Also this might be related to the problem, the lighting circuit fuse has blown on me while the score motor kept running.
