Quoted from Irishbastard:

Just a dirty potentiometer.... (Spray with contact cleaner, work back and forth)
https://www.fender.com/articles/tech-talk/control-crackle-cleaning-your-pots-and-switches-can-help
Also, your ball lock issue sounds like the ball lock switch not registering..

thanks i'll spray it with some deoxit

So I think the ball lock is registering because the pin is changing modes: lights dim, music changes, etc - basically it goes back to the new ball start where you're shooting the skill shot. It just isn't ejecting a ball into the shooter lane.

Thanks for the help.

Quoted from jake35:

Delorean looks great. How did you mount it?

I cut a thin piece of tin and doubled it over. Bent it to lean the right way then I screwed it to the bottom of the car then the other end to a single post in the back of the game.

Quoted from ypurchn:

You’ll never believe it!
So I adjusted the volume up and down and the problem has gone away... weird and dumb but it worked. So what’s the underlying cause?

Had this same issue if you look at page 5 or 6 of this thread. I took the volume pot assembly cover off and sprayed electronics cleaned and turned the volume pot in both directions and it resolved my issue. Just needs to get the dirt out!

Quoted from PappyBoyington:

Almost finished with the playfield part of my restoration. Need to add the drop stickers. I added the Delorean made by Welly from Amazon. I also added two spotlights on the right sling.

Can you please share the link for the Delorean?
Looks excellent I would like to order as well.
Thanks

Anyone have a set or know a source to obtain the pop bumper Delorean decals? I can't believe these haven't been reproduced. Please hit me up if you have a set I could buy off you!

Restoring my BTTF game. Did anything ever happen with making a reproduction Ramp? I would love one if it can be made. I think it would be a cool deal if the back part of it was made in plastic and the front part could instead be made out of metal kind of like how DE Jurassic Park is built, but idk maybe that's just me.

toyotaboy was working on it, but I don't know if there's been any recent developments. I want a couple of them myself.

So not making any promises, but a local supplier agreed to work with me on the ramp.. It's probably going to be a month or two while this coronavirus settles down.

please God make the ramp. I'm in for one and want it so bad.

#374 4 months ago

anyone got any advice for the ball constantly hitting the hill valley sign on launch, seems to happen like every 5th ball and never goes up the ramp, im thinking some rubber gaskets on the screws? Any pictures of what youve done would be extremely helpful.

Next question when going up the left side ramp sometimes when the ball gets to the top its going so fast it just launches into the playfield, common?

#375 4 months ago

You need to decrease the angle of the ramp. Try loosening the screws that bold the ramp down to the PF.

any screws specifically i should be focused on? looking at it now and other than the entrance to the ramp im not sure what else would cause the the angle change.

Bumping this backup up so I loosened the screws at the entrance to the ramp and that seemed to help with the hitting of the signs. However the ball still launches into the he middle of the Playfield when going up the left ramp fast

I take bigger screenshots and photos, click to enlarge images (and click again on display image mode if it is necessary) for avoid blur effect of pinside´s miniatures.
Regards

I just wanted to say that I contacted Mikonos and ordered a set of his custom cards, and couldn’t be happier. They look great in my hands and on my machine. Very happy with the purchase!

Looks great, I have a similar DeLorean in mine. Grab these for your naked drop targets.
