Hi all Dracula fiends...

I have just got hold of a BSD, but sadly it has a lamp matrix issue, where in single lamp mode test more than 1 lamp will light.

First off I have noticed that the lamp on the mist multiball magnet is missing a diode, so I guess this is as good a place to start by fitting one.

Could I ask someone who has a BSD please photo the lamp on the magnet so I know where the wires go and the way round the diode goes.

Once I have fitted it I will then see if the fault clears up.

Many thanks Dracula Dudes

Quoted from GoldenOreos:

anyone know where i can get lightning flippers? i need a few

Here you go;

Awesome job, thanks, I have now fitted the missing diode on that lamp.

Odd thing is since doing that I now have a switch matrix issue, the trough sw & right outlane sw don't work!!

If I meter the white wire from those switches I get nothing so there must be a break.

As if I take a wire and connect the white wire side of those switches down to the next switch in the chain the Mystery they then can be triggered.

Planning to see if I can find the break tonight, if not will run a wire to the Mystery sw.

Quoted from Lermods:

Putting LEDs in this game is no walk in the park. Several require ramps to be removed and many are in very tight spots.

I tend to go in under the playfield for those awkward lamps, just nut-driver the lamp off the underside and bingo.

Help needed please.

I have just noticed that My BSD is missing a post, at least I think it is.

Its on the left wire-ramp (above the mist multiball insert) which is fed via the right ramp, see photos.

Can anyone please let me know if there should be a post here and if so what I need to purchase? i.e. the size and type

Does this flasher have a number in the test diags? As I can not appear to find the test for it.


Sadly the flasher is not working in game and I can not find a test for it.

thanks in advance

Is there a flasher in the graveyard?

I have one in there from the wood at the back but it does not work and I can not find it in the manual or the test menu.

Just wondering if this was a mod someone did to my machine years back.

Hi fellow BSD owners.

I'm having trouble with my auto launch it does not always hit the skill drop target, rather it hits the rubber just below it.

I'd say 34 times out of 10 it does this.

I have changed the coil, plunger and spring with no joy.

Any other suggestions?

#4675 2 years ago
Quoted from aobrien5:

Do you have the clear plastic above the shooter lane right in front of the ramp? Is it installed the right way (screws toward the back of the plastic)?

I don't think so, can you please add a photo of the one you are talking about.

Quoted from weaverj:

is the plunger hitting center ball? sounds like you've replaced more than necessary.
check to see if the shooter lane switch is causing any issues, plunger hitting it, etc. check along the ball path for issues, too. is the top gate flapping freely?

Yes hitting dead centre (UK spelling ).

Yeah I figured replace the lot and its bound to fix the issue but sadly not.
Top flap appears OK I have watched the ball trajectory and it appears find just not 'strong' enough.
I'm going to slightly adjust the kicker to see if that helps.

#4690 2 years ago

OK I now see the plastic you pointed out.

Yep my machine has that in place.

Really at a loss as to why the machine does not hit the skill shot drop from ball launch.

Could I pop in a stronger coil?
