  • Pinball Wizard Not showing LEDs

    I have lane 15 with no leds lit on control box pc board. Changed out with new unit but still has same problem. Also on lane 24, motor runs but does not lift rails. Replaced motor and actuating arms still have same problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    Also on lane 16 leds are lit for rails down and safety switch and operational. On lane 23 everything works okay. Thanks ahead of time for assistance.

      Just checking, but you said in your first post that on 15 "no leds lit on control box pc board", yet you say that "lane 16 leds are lit for rails down". Since they are one and the same part I assueme you mean that the UP/DOWN LED's on 15 are the only LED's that don't light up?

      Both issues sound like an UP/DOWN switch problem. Are your UP/DOWN switches internal or external?

        Yes sorry about the error in stating problem. The up/down and safety LEDs are not lit. My lane 9 also has this problem.

          My switches are internal ones in the motor.

            Have you checked them for proper timing and checked the wiring to them?

            I don't have or have ever worked on the internal switch motors, that's not to say the theory isn't the same. The up/down and jam switches light the LED's. You want to check the connections to them from the box to the motor. On the external switch setup, the switch cables were tied down with very little slack. This often results in at least one wire breaking at one of the micro switch connectors; the internal switch setup may have a similar issue. If you don't see any breaks and the timing cams are adjusted correctly, you can disconnect each end of the switch wires an test the continuity with a multimeter.

            If the motor runs on 24 but there's no movement from the rails, I fear there might damaged gears inside the gearbox. Was the replacement motor new or used?

              New motor made same noise as it tries to lift rails. No movement seen.
