I recently picked up a Williams Doodle Bug.
After replacing the fried 10's score reel coil that was blowing one of
the fuses, I next found that the game was in an odd state. Once you
turn the machine on and hit the left flipper button to turn on the GI
lights -- the flippers work, the targets score, but the game is stuck
on ball "zero" and the start button won't reset the game even though
there are credits available.
I then found that if you hit the coin relay manually, the game then
starts up and resets fine, and appears to play fine, but when you drain
the last ball, it won't go to "game over" and ends up back in that
The game over relay appears to trip properly when the last ball is
drained, and it seems like at least some of the playfield lights go
out, but the flippers still flip and the start button won't work to
start a new game.
Any guesses? Misadjusted switch(es) on the game over relay? Something
