This is my first post on here so hopefully I'm doing this right. My family has had the Doctor Who pinball machine for around 15 years, and as of a couple years ago we have been having issues with it. Originally, we had a motor issue with the mini playfield which we were able to get replaced and the machine functioned normally. However, the mini playfield will not rise again, and this time the motor is fine. We had someone come look at it and he suggested that there was a short somewhere that was preventing the mini playfield from getting the signal to rise up. The guy said he couldn't figure out where the short was and was not able to repair it for us, but we love the game so much and would hate to have to dump it.
I was wondering if anyone here has had a similar issue and if so how did they go about fixing it? Everything else in the game works great but the mp just won't rise anymore when it's supposed to and we cannot continue or beat the game. Also, I heard there was a way to disable the mp from the game settings? In case we are not able to fix the mp, could someone also walk me through doing that? Does disabling it mean we can play the game fine without the mp?
Sorry for all the questions!!
