Sounds like you possibly have an issue with a trough switch/opto/wire. Have you gone into the diagnostic menu? Do you have a credit dot indicating a problem somewhere?

Im in as of last night. Sweet machine. Full led, cross mods, led undercab lights, love never dies led strip, backbox led strip light mod. Has typical fading, but not terrible. I got rid of my hs2 after 4 months...bsd after one day seems relatively simple, but much more difficult.

#1121 5 years ago

What do you guys think of this cabinet side? Picked it up over the weekend.

#1126 5 years ago
Quoted from TaylorVA:

Is it Sharpied?

Yes, but it actually looks very good, surprisingly. You can only really tell from up close. The rest of the color on the cab is original. As others stated, doesn't affect gameplay, and this one plays perfect with a very nice PF, zero insert wear.

Forget those flashers, they are useless. Install an led strip. Look at the sky, there's one there too, changing colors.

#1198 5 years ago

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

#1211 5 years ago
Quoted from jrawlinson_2000:

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

Yes, that's how I do it too, but even from underneath, not all bulbs are easily accessible. Some are under the subway, for example.

#1224 5 years ago
Quoted from n0s4atu:

I looked at the batteries, they looked new. Under the playfield, one of the boards doesn't seem to be getting any power, as the LED isn't lit. I've got someone coming early next week to have a look, since I didn't seem to find anything loose and didn't see any of the fuses were blown.
So for now I guess Dracula is going to be decorative until next week.
This is a strange hobby, my game is "broken" for lack of a better word and I'm looking forward to the topper I ordered coming (thanks Joe at Laseriffic) and oddly looking forward to the person coming here and showing me what's wrong and how it gets fixed.
I may already have a slight case of pinball fever since I keep looking at the gym in my basement and thinking, "do I really need all this stuff? I have a Golds membership and man could I fit a lot of pins in here." lol

Do you have a game manual? Those switches are all close to one another I think. Check the wires around all those switches. Look for broken diode or wire. Check the fuse with a meter, not by eye. Do any of the switches register in test mode? Might just be loose connector on the board. The can't be that hard to fix if it all happened at once and suddenly.

#1226 5 years ago

I just checked the manual, all those switches are on the same matrix. I am by no means an expert, but manual shows j207-5 green/black wire on connector and u20-14 as associated with those switches. J207 is on CPU board on left bottom middle. My guess is something may be wrong with u20 or that connector wire.

Does the mystery hole work, it's switch 58, also on that matrix. Same with 57 opto castle 3.

Don't know what fuse is associated with this area so hopefully someone chimes in. Maybe start a new thread as only people interested in bsd likely look here.

Just replaced my flipper coil sleeves, plunger mechanism and springs, what a difference. I can make the left ramp 95% of the time I hit it compared to about 60-70% before. The plunger and coil sleeves were pretty dirty. Took about 20 mins/side. The old plungers had a lot of play in them, these feel much firmer. Making that ramp is a must for this game and you don't get many second chances.

#1273 5 years ago
Quoted from skywalker:

every doz games or so i get a credit dot error, left magnet error, have done a magnet test all ok, Mist ball works perfectly as far as i can tell always has since I've had it, mist ball works from both sides ok, anything i should take a look at ?

The same happens to me with the left drop score switch 16 (the target you hit when the ball launches). Registers every time it's hit and works in test mode, yet the dot remains. Some times I get a dot, go into the menu and there is no error, which is strange.

#1275 5 years ago
Quoted from n0s4atu:

How's your play been when you have the credit dot? I believe the game gets the dot if you don't trip certain things every X amount of games.
Does anyone else ever get their Mystery Hole shot and it says "Outhole Bonus" and then hit the Mystery Hole again and you don't seem to get anything for it at all? Is that normal?
Is there a strategy guide anywhere as well?

Mystery has to be lit to get an award.

I didn't even know there were lights under Dracula. Just took him off and the sockets were empty. Threw in some 555s and it's all good now,

It will, very hard pin, short games, truly one of those games where you just have to push start one more time, only to be beaten up again and again. I'm a decent player, but in three months or so of owning, still haven't hit three MBs. Make sure those flippers are good and strong, you can't afford to not make the left ramp on the first try.

Got three mbs going for the first time since owning the machine, about four or five months. Had mist and coffin mb going, didn't even realize I had castle mb going until I heard the magic words....thiiiiirty miliiiion." Still didn't break 1 billion, but got a new high of 950 mil. Love this game. in my view, it's better than TAF and smokes HS2, two games I've had and sold in the past year.

Quoted from MrBellMan:

I think your switches are flaky. 43 showing when 42 should to me means that 42 is not registering correctly when depressed and the last switch that did register was 43. Just my thoughts of course...
Rob Bell

I agree, 42 looks bad. It's cheap enough to replace 42. Or you could first swap the switches for 42 and 43 and see if it then shows that 43 is not registering, that would confirm the bad switch.

Quoted from TravisRT1985:

Got my drac a week ago. Here it is sitting in my fun room. Thanks Rob. https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=WL&v=fo0YOXdEYAE

Rub it in why don't you ...miss the game, but glad you like it! Looks great in your game room. Let's see you top the high score!

Quoted from Chet:

Game play question? When i get both coffin and castle multiball both going and shoot a ball up the left ramp, it enters the Castle look ramp and remains locked, then if i drain out of multi-ball, the game still keeps the Blue Jackpot light lit at the scoop and will release the ball in the castle lock to the shooter and autoplunge it into play, it being the only ball in play. Is this normal behavior.

Yes, normal. Mine did the same thing.
