Hello. I bought a TZ with a "Clock Is Broken." The clock had the OEM boards replaced (not sure of make...haven't taken it apart yet, but LEDs in a ring). It appears the A-16120 driver board has been replaced too (

I'm hoping someone can help me decide a direction based on symptoms:

- Credit dot error: Clock is broken
- Does not run/move during startup or gameplay
- Clock test entry it spins backwards only
- Pressing the test buttons on the driver board it does run forward and backward.

I've tried the basic of reseating all connections. I thought perhaps the piano mod may have wiggled bottom of clock connex loose.

I know Twilight Zone clock repair threads are everywhere, I'm just hoping someone has had a similar issue and will chime in.

Thanks in advance for your help.
