Hello and thank you for any help you may be able to give. I recently purchased a Skylab Pinball machine and have several questions. I have searched all of the current posts on this machine and can't find the info I need.
When I turn the machine on everything lights up and the reset cam turns to zero everything out and then stops. The flippers both work. When I push the red button on the front nothing happens. When I push the smaller white button the reset cam starts turning and won't stop. In addition, the solenoid in the coin mechanism cycles over and over and won't stop. The machine will not "pop" the ball up to the plunger no matter what I do.
1. I have a small white button on the front of my machine that I don't see in pictures of other's machines. I'm wondering if this is original or if was added by a previous owner.
2. A previous owner has removed the Lock Relay - Z-29-1250 solenoid. The two relays on the left are permanently open and the three relays on the the right are permanently closed. I did read an interaction in which this was discussed and I think this is ok.
3. When I first turned on the machine the credit count was at about 19. Every time I turned the machine off and back on and hit the front button the count dropped by 1. It is now at 13 and is no longer dropping.
4. I have checked the relays on the coin mechanism and they are all open.
Thank you for any help.
