I recently got my hands on a Zaccaria Universe that is 90 % functional. It does however contain a few switches behind the rubbers that seem to do nothing despite clearly having wires coming from them. I'm not certain if they should be scoring points or not. Advice would be welcomed.

I included photos of the mystery switches.

well, since they generally don't put switches behind rubbers just to have them there, yea, they should score... usually switches like that score the "lowest point value" that a machine will score...

got a schematic?

fwiw, that machine looks real nice...

also, you'll likely get some answers if you get a moderator to move this to the "em hangout"... most of the em guys don't venture very far from there, and likely won't see your question here...

Thanks! I actually managed to get them to work after hitting a variety of other switches during game play. Not much info on this machine floating about so I'm left discovering on my own.

*Edit: They work now after cleaning the pins in the back. Only thing left to fix on this pin is a weak right flipper.
