Quote from: Haf on September 23, 2017, 07:28:39 AMStan,started today with my try to adjust the relay. Ok, that's th result so far:Picture one, no coin, hard to see but no contakt between inner and outer ground contact spring. Controller shows power light only.Picture two, coin inserted, contact between inner and outer ground contact spring, controller shows three lights, after 60 seconds jumps from return light to collect light but..no dial tone, and no firing the relay.Ahh, and with twisted looking blade/metal I meant the coin trigger lever spring...someone has tried to bend before.I don't know why the pictures are turned sideways...tried two times but always same result, sorry for that.Haf

And you are right, that relay in it didn't work at all (there was no way magnetizing new bent "magnets" so there was a small magnet attached from the back, but that wasn't the only problem). But Stan was able to modify one of those repro relays to work and send it to me. It's working fine with his controller now. I really appreciate his experience and knowledge. So everything is fine now.Haf
