EM game gets stuck on one ball and does not advance? How to fix it.

Today I finally got a chance to set up a game I purchased last year and brought back from Houston. A 1976 Williams “Space Mission” EM game, the theme centers around the Apollo-Soyuz link-up in 1975. This game exhibited a somewhat common problem, of the ball not advancing and being stuck on “ball one” over and over, so the game would never end. In this series of videos, I illustrate what causes this and how to fix it.

  1. Hi, I just purchased space odyssey and there is one problem I cant seem to fix, when the ball goes up the advance bonus chute the game tilts, do you have any ides for me? Thanks

  2. I have an Aztec that won’t go past ball 2. Cleaned this baby up pretty good. Goes all four players ok but won’t go past second ball. Funny thing is you can’t even do by hand.
