I am new here; my father gave me his Bally Amigo pinball machine and it worked two-three years ago. Today, the machine has some issues that I want to look into fixing myself, since having a tech out sounded more expensive than the machine is worth.
First thing, the flippers are weak. Both of them. From my research this could be quite a few different things, from cleaning the buttons to replacing the flipper coils. Any suggestions in troubleshooting this issue?
Second thing, the play field lights don't work. They did power on when I first powered on the machine, but haven't since. Possible fuse issue here I believe, but I think the fuse board is broke/damaged. Suggestions? I attached a photo I happened to take after initial boot up where the play field is lit.
Third thing, the trigger that moves the ball over to the ball launcher isn't working; the ball gets stuck and pressing the Start button doesn't work either to kick the ball over. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for any replies, I look forward to this learning project.
