I picked up these marquees on the factory tour at Expo ages ago.

They've been sitting around since though and should probably find a home with someone who's more of an AG enthusiast than I am. Nothing against AG; I'm just more of an EM guy. PM me if you're interested.

Quoted from TomDK:

Blabla ... only intrtesting if you live in his neighborhood. Years ago I asked for parts and he invited me to check his hall. But .. a little expensive from Germany.
He was not able to check his hall himself or ask someone to do so. It is frustrating ... there are so many parts needet for Alvin G. but parts are rotting in his halls.

I went in his hall, and indeed he has tens of marquees for AG Soccerball (or football dont remember) and tens of uncut plastic sets.
Some of them (if the most of them) were laying on the ground.

That it what I heard also .. it is a shame. he also has Backglasses from MC and so on. All in a rotten hall.
The onliest positiv point is, that he allowed me years ago to come and see what I find.
maybe someone is livin next to him and wil speak with hiom about all this rare stuff is is horting.

This time a shopped a GarageBand and would need Lockbars.
A topper for garageBand was found as a repro.

Quoted from ajfclark:

Pushing on one of the connectors on the power board seems to resolve it? Ground issue? Cracked header pins?

Could just simply be connector issue if it goes away when moved. I'd also check for cracked solder joints but I really think the connector is your problem.

Anyone with one of the head to head games ever run into an issue with the gate not working?

Red Gate Coil 12 does not work. This goes back to HP6 q32 on the cpu board. Board works fine in mystery castle for that mosfet, so its not the board. The coil has power. The wire brn/yl back to the cpu board for the mosfet has continuity. The power wire goes back to the powersupply board and has continuity. The two other coils (blue gate and gi relay) work and have continuity to the red gate.

My last guess is the coil itself has gone bad? I tried grounding the tab on the mosfet and it fails to fire the coil. Figure next step is to swap coils between gates and see if the problem follows the coil.

And the DMD works! I ordered one of those NOS ones that ( https://www.pinballspareparts.com.au/pca-020a.html ) Pinball Australia has moved my chips over and working like new again. Was nice to actually play the game finally and see what I was doing. Next up tear down and shop it out with a LED treatment..

I checked the audit menu and found it only has 118 plays on it! Last owner said it was huo so it may appear to be just that.

Well in this time of social distance, I've torn down my PP and did a full shop out. Comet 2SMD sunlight leds (getting a little ghosting here and there) new black rubbers, cleaned and polished all parts. Did a strip of amber LED's under the upper PF to light up the lower PF a bit. Also did a 3 SMD strip under the apron. Comet disc in the pop bumpers red/white. Went with some red LED's in the upper lanes. Always nice to shop a HUO only game they come up so nice!

Here is a little video I made...

Did you find out the colors of those wires coming out of pp11? I need the same info if you have any pictures. Here’s mine..

Yeah hard for me to read these manuals. I’d rather have a picture of the connector if anyone has one.. I think I’ve got it correct but I want to make sure before I turn it on and blow something up..

Do you thing anyone at any time will reproduce the power supply board? With small numbers probably not right?

My Al's garage band has been worked on before to the extent of soldering tracks over the existing ones! I have replaced so many components I really want another one! PSPA has none.

Anyone have a working they are prepared to part with?

Thanks
Clive

Check eBay, someone in your neck of the woods is selling a.g. power supplies on ebay

#269 54 days ago

But watch out with PowerBoards .. there are 2 different out

PCA 019A
PCA 028

019A is our regular one we need.
The 028 is very easy and cheap to get. I am no electronoics pro but I am sure, at least with some modification, this powerboard wioll also work. It was designed later for machines never were build.
So have a look on this board but there might be some changes to do !!!!!!

EDIT: The ones on ebay are the wrong ones !

There are actually 4 that Alvin G used. The other 2 are PBPS-001 and PCA-006.

My bad, I forgot this thread was about all the different machines. I should really ingest coffee before using the internet.

However, those pictures show you how to map the diagram to the cables for Al's garage band. That technique should work for the soccer too.

Here's the scheamtic from the AG Football manual:

That is idential to the layout in my machine, except the addition of pin 8 with Blue/White.

Is this main fuse a 5amp? Mine blew and it’s says 5 amp on it..

#273 52 days ago

Alright I wired everything according to that connector colors and it’s blowing the main line fuse. (5amp) There are two white wires. Numbers 2 and 4 would it make a difference if I switched them up?

#274 52 days ago

On the old board they had the blue wired to pin six. They old board booted the machine but it reset like crazy and someone hack the shit out of the board so I found another board that the guy said worked but it’s blowing the main fuse..

Recently obtained a Mystery Castle, it's got a few issues but mostly nice. I'm looking for a new coil sleeve for the shooter coil as it's been cut very short and causing very inconsistent plunges. Would anyone with a Garage band or Mystery Castle be able to measure the coil sleeve for me or even better let me know where I can find a replacement?

Thank you!
