Fellow Pinsiders,
Just a quick note to let you know that I launched a Kickstarter campaign today for redesigned score display boards for model H and model S Skee Ball machines! Here's a link if you want to check it out:

Quick update - the campaign is 85% funded with six days to go! Check it out before it closes.

Hoping someone can lead me in the right direction......

Have a Williams Flintstones and installed the Kahr fix over a year ago. Went to a national show, been through three house parties, no issues! Played a game the other day and getting resets on every game. I took the daughter board off and it did not reset(I assume because there is an issue at the 12v side, removing the board stopped using the 12v to feed a steady 5v?) Couple of notes:

Somewhere along the line these parts have been replaced by either myself or someone before me.....
-BR1
-BR2
-LM7812(has a hack on the back side but cold joints look ok)
-LM323
-C4
-C5
-C11

Without the daughter board I am getting voltages of 4.8 at TP02 and fluctuating voltages between 14.3-16.2 at TP08
With the daughter board installed I am getting voltages of 4.9 at TP02 and the same fluctuating voltages at TP08

Where can I go from here to look for the gremlin? If I understand this 10 page thread, there must be an issue on the 12v side due to TP08 being as low as 14v., just don't know where to look or what to test next?!

I'm doing my final packing this weekend to attend Pintastic in Sturbridge, MA. I've only been to the show once (in 2016) and I'm returning because it is an incredibly fun show to attend. Here's what I will have available at the show:

Electronics:
- Classic and Pro versions of the WPC Power Fix - will have about 50 of each
- Pinball 2000 H+V video sync combiner kits - bringing less than 10 of these kits
- Williams potentiometers (volume controls) for Williams system 3-7 sound boards
- Replacement LED display boards for model H & model S Skee Ball - will have 10 of these

Shapeways shop:
- Pinball Pyramid brackets - about 10 of these
- Bally rollover peg sets - only 2 or 3 of these
- Williams Display Glass brackets - two sets of four
- Firepower/Flash/etc. outlanes - one set
- Party Zone Dancing Dummy arms and legs - one set

KAHR.US Swag:
- Sport drink bottles - only about 10 of these
- WPC Power Fix T-shirts - probably one of each available size
- Free KAHR.US Circuits pens - around 200.

I'm only operating a "mini vending table" at the show which will be open Noon to 6:00 PM on Friday and 1:00 to 6:00 PM on Saturday. If you find me at other times I will likely have a couple WPC Power Fix boards in my pocket.

Hey All,
Just installed my first WPC power fix board on a Dirty Harry. I'm getting Blue, Red, and flashing green. Anyone else have this? How did you resolve it? Thanks!

I'm doing my final packing for the YORK show! This will be the first show where I will have the 2018 edition of the WPC Power Fix boards but I quietly started shipping the 2018 edition in the July timeframe. What's new? The Pro version now includes a small button that resets the monitoring sequence. In all earlier versions you had to power down the machine to restart the monitoring once a hiccup was identified. It's a neat addition to the board and a good deal considering the price didn't go up with the change.
