Hey guys I just bought n Elvira and the Party Monsters and sadly the game is a little rougher than I would have liked.
No big deal. It just means I have to go all My Fair Lady on this pin before I can start to have some fun with it.
There is a good bit of work that needs to be done, but the first order of business I think are getting the coil in the coffin/gravestone flip up targets to work, and also the coil for the boogey men targets to work.
I did run the coil test for the game and they're not firing there. I checked to see if the connections were loose under the playfield. All looks to be in order from what I can see. The coils don't have any obstructions either and they move easily by hand.
I'm wondering if it could be as simple as a fuse went out and needs to be replaced. Or if its cold solder that needs to be reflowed.
There are a lot of lights and flashers that are out on this pin. But, most of those I think might be due to years of neglect.
I'm hoping that someone could point me to where the issues might possibly be in regards to which driver/power board would be the one that would be the problem one. I'm not the best at solder. But, I could try to figure it out. And I do have a multi-meter.
But, I really need a starting point on what/where I should look.
Any other suggestions would be great. Once I figure this out. I can go about doing the rest of my tasks with this pin. And there is a good bit, but I want/need to make sure I can get it all working before I do that.
Rest of the coils and everything seem to work just fine.
Thanks in advance and have a nice day.
