Gottlieb Volcano won't reset to play a game

PinballDude369

Inserted Coin
Hello,

Recently, my Volcano pin stopped resetting after power up in order to play a game. We had a party and I'm wondering if one of our guests hit something wrong and caused these problems. When I push the start button and the drop targets would reset and the ball would eject, but not anymore. Now when you push the start button it displays player one on the displays and indicates ball one, but doesn't do anything else or have sound. I've checked the fuses and they all seem fine and the switch behind the front door and the tilt roll-up on the left inside are in proper positions. The game goes into display mode fine, but no sound there either. Not sure where to look now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Check in the back box on the cpu board if it has the battery still installed yet near the bottom left of the board. Or if the battery was removed a off board battery holder may have been installed.
