Ok, this one has been driving me crazy for a few weeks now. When I hit #2 rollover on my World Fair, it is supposed to turn off the playfield insert and light the corresponding #2 light on the backglass. What happens is the backglass #2 light doesn’t always light up or it will just briefly flicker and turn off. It will work fine for 2 or 3 games but the problem always comes back. I thought I had it fixed. It seems to be tied to the #2 make break switch on the reset bank. I’ve cleaned the contacts with one of those ignition files several times. I’ve adjusted the contacts to no end. Made the contacts as close as possible. It will work fine for a few games and then come back. If I just touch the switch very lightly the #2 light will come on. I don’t know if the relay is maybe not pulling in tight enough sometimes to cause it to not make good enough contact. What would cause that? By hand it seems to move fine. The contacts themselves had a white film on it but look better now since I filed them. Replacing these switches would not be easy. I’d probably have to make up a whole new one from parts from PBR or something.
At first I thought it was the bulb or the socket in the backglass. I replaced both. Obviously that wasn’t the issue.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
