Quoted from gac:

I have a similar situation. Once in a while, one of the speaker panel speakers (usually the right side and usually occurs when the machine is first turned on) will be much quieter than the other. I find that if I touch the volume potentiometer with my fingers that the sound comes back. There seems to be a bit of static noise but then it comes back.... much like touching a radio antenna when losing the signal. Not sure if its a board issue, grounding issue, potentiometer issue, or what???

You sir are a genius. Of all the things I never tried messing with the volume pot! Tweaking it fixed it and I sprayed some electronics cleaner in there. I’ve been racking my brain!! What an easy fix!

Now I have to ask... how exactly did you tweak it? Thanks

Honestly I just adjusted the volume. I actually pushed on the volume pot stick and I guess my connection is dirty. Works great now. Can't believe I never tried just adjusting the volume. Its located inside the coin door (but I'm sure you know that)

Lol. Glad its fixed. Now play that fun game!

#305 10 months ago

Hmm...mine has a similar issue... Sometimes the sound sounds like cheap headphones, turn potentiometer a tad, fixed....Was thinking of searching out a replacement

Quoted from Irishbastard:

Hmm...mine has a similar issue... Sometimes the sound sounds like cheap headphones, turn potentiometer a tad, fixed....Was thinking of searching out a replacement

So each time I turn on my machine I have to tweak the volume pot to get all three speakers to function properly. Started to wonder now if I just need to reflow some solder on the volume pot connections or if it’s linked to the sound board...

#307 10 months ago

Just an update on my speaker issue. I opened up the power unit that houses the volume pot and on/off switch. Opened it up and sprayed electronics cleaner on the volume pot and it fixed my issue!

Finishing up my BTTF and have the typical green under ramp flashers licking on. Haven’t had any luck finding the fail components. Anyone had any suggestions of where to look that has dealt with it?

got my plastic set today. Beyond the plastics, there are extra goodies as usual (data east keychains), every plastic protector, two of the plastic that's in front of the pop bumper (since this is prone to breaking).

And yes, I still intend to get the ramp made, have to get my game setup again in the basement and recheck everything. Also I was wanted to fund the tool myself, pretty sure I have enough at this point.

Has anybody successfully pulled off the mylar on a Back to the Future? I've done it several times to other games but this will be my first mylar pull on a Data East.

Thanks,
Rich

#332 20 days ago

I pulled the Mylar on mine a bunch of years ago. Used freeze spray and went slow. No issues and no paint damage.

#333 20 days ago

Same as fierodoug did. Freeze spray, go slow. No issues.

Freeze spray several years ago and the o lynissie I had was the text came off the 5 X insets just above the flippers. I had bad insert bubbles from insert hear and that might have had something to do with it. Overall pretty easy to take off. Just take it slow.

Yup, freeze spray (can air duster turned upside down) worked well for me. If you're not going to restore and clear coat the PF, I'd leave it on personally. The paint will just wear off the whole PF if you don't restore it properly.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/marty-you-gotta-come-back-with-me-where-back-to-the-future-restore#post-3883659

Removing the remaining goo with flour and alcohol worked great, but took much much longer than removing the mylar.

Thanks for the tips. I loved looking at your restoration thread. Nice work.

I don't think I need to add more clear. The play field has clear coat on it already and the paint hasn't worn where there is no mylar. I realize it's a thin factory cc but it's fine for home use. Also my NOS playboy 35th looks just fine and it has factory clear.

Thanks,
Rich

#337 17 days ago

BTW, has anybody tried weaker flipper coils? Or something else to weaken the flipper strength? I have factory 090-5020-30 in mine.

Thanks,
