    We're a little light on game issues for this week's clinic. If you'd like some live help troubleshooting your EM game please sign up.

    #103 9 months ago

    Would you ever consider doing one of these for an EM shuffle bowler? So many switches! So many potential problems

    #104 9 months ago

    I'd consider it. The help might be limited by the availability of the schematics and our coaches' experience but there are lots of things in common with pinball that we should be able to help with.

    Oooooo yeeaaahhhhh. I have a '62 United Astro and the whole backbox is like a closet full of switches, etc.

    #106 9 months ago

    If I could free up enough time to participate again, I would be happy to help diagnose a bowler problem (shuffle or ball) if the others were ok with it. Bingos too, if you'd like more switches than a bowler...

    I'm working on the launch of a project this weekend, so unfortunately cannot participate (again).

    #107 9 months ago

    I have a shuffle bowler with schematics that I don't know how to read properly It's got a number of issues that I've been wracking my brain to figure out for over a year.

    #108 9 months ago

    To Mark and the other coaches – sorry I was late to the party – arrived at 4P Mountain/Arizona, but was an hour late....

    It was definitely interesting listening to the diagnoses of the Grand Prix, Prospector, and the baseball game. Hopefully I can make the next one on time!

    #109 8 months ago

    Agreed, I enjoyed seeing the baseball getting back on track. I dont think I've ever seen one here in the UK, so it was good to see one for real.

    The 13th EM Pinball Online Repair Clinic is scheduled for Friday November 20th. For details or to request an invitation visit:

    Pass it on to someone you think might be interested.

    #111 8 months ago

    Oh, cool. I have a couple seemingly simple issues (chattering flipper and non-scoring slingshot on Mayfair, "3" rollover and dial switch not registering on Sky-Line), but I haven't gotten around to really diving in on these yet, so it would be fun to do this live. Don't really know how to use the webcam on my laptop, but maybe my wife will be the "camera crew" with her Macbook, she knows that stuff.

    #112 8 months ago

    While a camera (web cam, phone, whatever) can be helpful it's not really required to troubleshoot. We do it here all the time.
    A microphone however would be required if you'd like to do more than listen in.

    Amazing that you're up to #13.

    I may send in a request by Tuesday. I just have to confirm my schedule.

    Hi Mark,

    I'll probably pass on this one, as my basement flooded about two weeks ago, and I'm still cleaning it up. As a result my Dipsy Doodle is in the garage, there probably won't be enough light and it will be pretty cold to boot. Have a great session.

    You can always post here in the EM forum.

    #117 6 months ago

    I may. I got a bit of education reading schematics from HowardR (he was very helpful) and I’ve previously posted about this shuffle bowler and gotten assistance from Mopar. I may go back now that I know a bit about schematics and see if I can figure some things out, although a walk through of an issue or two on one of MarkG’s repair clinics would probably be hugely helpful.

    Thanks Mark for the clinic today. You guys are great. You resolved my issue. Extremely helpful and insightful.

    #121 5 months ago

    Fantastic clinic today, looking forward to the next one

    #122 5 months ago

    These clinics are always enjoyable, feel like I learn new stuff each time, Mark and the other coaches are great

    #123 5 months ago

    Add my thanks to Mark and all for making these happen . Greatly appreciate the incredible amount of time everyone gives. With the help of the group brain, my Space Mission is now at 100% . To avoid additional cringe and gasping I will not reveal the common-but-not-proper 'temporary' solution for the weak spring on the mini-stepper as I find it unavailable so far -- thus off to the 'parts needed' thread for a 10-324-1.

    Hope to be a part of the next one. Interactive EM sessions -- such a blast!

    Cheers

    Tom
