First time pin owner starting with a Data East Star Wars 1992. Been about 2wks in nostalgic bliss and also 2wks of fun issues. Almost every day something likes to stop working. I leave it turned off when not in play and usually unplugged.
Got it from Great American Pinball as shopped with new LEDs and no other mods.
A bit of a panic here. Got some friends coming tomorrow to show off my DESW, but when I turned it on today to play, the ball isn't launching. The fire button does the skill shot but no ball action. It then plays the starship flying sound on a frequent loop. Fire button doesn’t do anything at this point. It does not go into ball search either bc I think it still thinks it’s in skill shot. Power cycled it a few times and unplugged from the wall too for a few min. After the power cycle, I press the start button, and it says "0 balls missing," does a ball search but the plunger doesn't go. I've run diagnostics and the launcher coil does not fire.
I'm a total newbie. Can someone give me troubleshooting pointers? I took a look under the hood, but have no idea what I'm looking for. I've also posted in the DESW Club thread.
