Quoted from pinballinreno:

Replace the diode, and let us know.
Its a pretty easy fix if that's all it is.
While you have the board out check all the pins for cracks etc.
Carefully examine all the traces with a magnifier.

Diode replacement complete.

Problem solved!

Game now saves settings!

Had a good look over everything and it looks brand new.

Just waiting for ColorDMD.

Good job on the troubleshooting.

For those who would like to upgrade the static Dalek topper, Mark Davidson just finished 6 more of his famous Wobble head mechs. I just got another one, so he has 5 left. https://www.basementarcade.com/Project-Wobble-Head.html

Hey guys, quick question

I have 2 machines which behave differently.

In wave 3 video mode when you get the extra ball - one of my machines knocks the other one doesn't.

Normal game play they are identical. Only other difference is one has wobble head and one doesnt.

Any ideas?

Also one has a genuine MPU the other one has a Rottendog replacement.

Could swap the MPU boards between games and see if the behavior switch too? If not then something in the game itself.

If the behavior follows the MPU are they both running the same ROM version? If you swap ROM chips between games does the behavior switch too? Are both using batteries or is one using NVRAM?

Thanks for the reply. I cant really be bothered changing out the MPU for that. On your machine does it knock during video mode or not?

They both seem to be running 20006 L-2

Actually its a Homepin replacement not Rottendog

I’ve never heard my machine knock during video mode. Are all the settings exactly the same? You could try restoring factory settings on each then compare.

I'm wondering if its something to do with the different MPU

If you can swap them between games that would tell for sure. Which version knocks now?

The Homepin one does, the Bally/Williams doesn't.

Can anyone else comment if their video mode fires the knock coil when you collect the EB ?

#5014 2 days ago

I am guessing it is just a setting. Restore both to factory and make sure they are running the same revision

Its not a setting, they are both on factory settings

My DW is in Ohio right now, but I am 99.999% sure it does knock during the video mode, when you collect the EB icon on the 2nd(?) wave

All boards original. Maybe check your ROM revision

I've never heard mine knock in video mode.

So my machine that I just manually forced balls to light up targets and WHO extra ball, it only knocks on high score replay, and when special is lit on ESCAPE targets. Doing a W H O ramps in order and then going down the extra ball lane that is lit, only gets you an extra ball, NO knock. My machine is set to wave 5 video extra ball. So I went through all 5 videos and got extra ball, but No knock. I have original WPC 89 CPU with level 2 chip. My power board is from PinLED in Germany 2005. Wonder why the difference in your machines.

Mine does not knock when awarding the extra ball in video mode.

I know that the recent auction that the Museum (but not museum quality) pinballs and arcades sold for inflated prices, but can you believe that Doctor Who sold for $8000 plus shipping??? It did not even have any upgrades such as color DMD, or Pinsound board, or moving Dalek topper.

And don't forget auction fees
