Playfield swap done, lower and back cabinet refinished as well as playfield perimeter wood, all sockets replaced, mods installed ( blue leg lights, plasma bumper tops, all leds, under cab lights, new speakers, new ultimate solenoid driver board, lighted blue posts, light bar has blue LED’s now, lighted flippers and flipper buttons). I polished the ramps but honestly they could use about 10 hours on them or just get them rechromed. Also added an led light strip at top of playfield under the plastics the full length to brighten things up.
I bought a new apron but I am waiting for printshop to finish a translucent graphic to have a lighted plastic apron like you may have already seen here (hey bill, I’m working on it as fast as I can... lol )
Already had Alltek lamp board and mpu. Installed the new SDB just to be sure there were no data issues prior to begin with sound card issues.
No solenoid issues as between the dishwater and replacing all bushings they seem 100 percent
I still need to repin all connectors and replace the connector housings that pinch the wires like a scotch lock.
The debugging issues I am up against so far:
Low hum from speakers that seems to match the score display rotation when in attract mode.
Sounds play but there is one odd sound at times that I would describe as the same as using your tongue to make a fast clicking sound. Caps and pots on sound boards I have replaced just this morning.
I do realize the sound issues may disappear once I repin everything.
This machine came with switch no 28 wired to use the other most connectors of the three. But I have seen here other machines with the two left most connectors used. This is a major issue I need to fix as one way the switch is N.O. and the other the switch is N.C. Can someone who has debugged the 2 ball issue or no ball loading help clarify this???
The same question I think also pertains to switch no 27 tube switch, this machine came with outermost connectors used.
Switch adjusting tools arrived yesterday so I still need to go through each one and test for proper gapping.
There may be other issues I find as I go along... otherwise things are really shaping up.
