Those look REALLY good! I made a K-9 flasher to interact with the game and replace one of the Who mobiles but those look really good!

Joined today! Picked up a nice Doctor in a trade! Looking forward to learning all about it, it’s been a long time coming. I have had several close calls but never managed to bring one home, until now.

#2305 34 days ago

Finally took the time to service my Who and set up the Leds, blades, new rubbers and some stuff I made for it.
Quite happy with the overall look.

Here you are. Made them from toys I bought on ebay UK.

Nice! Which ships are those? I like Davros too - is he on top of a pop bumper?

Yep, Davros sits on the bumper.
Slitheen & Cpt Shula ships.

I really like the side blades on these games.

It really modernizes them a lot with the colorDMD and alt translite.

Does anyone make a back board decal to go with the blades?

Seems unfinished without it.

Not that I know of.
Thought about the color DMD but decided against it, too expensive for a small improvement on Dr Who imo.

Alt translite will come when my brother visits from NYC; seller would only ship within the US.

I ordered the LED colorDMD.

It seemed to me, to match the game better after LED's were put in the playfield.

But it does seem odd that no one has offered a back board decal.

LED ColorDMD looks great in the Doctor, we installed one in my buddies machine so we could have the Doctor lights back, and I’ll be putting one in mine someday as well.

I don’t feel like the difference is small at all, especially with the video modes and the various scenes in this game the color really brings them to life.

Has anybody had any problems with a weak vuk under the tardis? I've replaced the coil sleeve and plunger and sometimes it just doesn't want to launch the ball up.

Check your connectors and test your coil.

#2318 31 days ago

I haven’t been down there on mine yet... but I’m gonna bet it’s a broken / worn plunger tip.

#2319 31 days ago
Quoted from gunstarhero:

worn plunger tip.

I just said I replaced it

Switch out your tardis with one of these: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Doctor-Who-11th-Doctor-Tardis-4-Port-USB-Hub/48625253
You will have to gut the inside but it looks so much better that the original. I did this to mine and it made a huge difference.

To anybody with a old left ramp, would you part with the old decals.
Thanks

Just joined the club!

Game is kinda rough but has a pretty good playfield.

Issue #1 no power to upper left flipper. Fuse is good, 74v to both sides of f901 and it ohms out, looks new.

No 74v on any leg of the coil lugs.

No power at j902 pins 1 or 3.
The other pairs in j902 have 74v

#2326 20 days ago

My cabinet flipper opto boards only have one opto.

The manual list it as a 2 opto flipper board but it's not. I dont even think it's necessary to use dual opto flipper boards in this game.

#2327 20 days ago

Issue #2

Time expander barely works.

Lots of Opto errors in test and it raises but has trouble lowering.

Time to completely rebuild ! Lol

#2328 20 days ago

Issue #3

Slings don't work at all.

Might be related to upper flipper?

#2329 20 days ago

Other than those 3 issues, the game is complete!

I'm really looking forward to getting it up and running.

#2330 20 days ago

How weird.

Mine had the flipper optos totally removed and replaced with leaf switches!

It works fine so I haven’t messed with it tho.

You can do this, I think operators pulled them out due to lack of parts and direct wired them lol.

In my case it might be an early version or it was retrofitted to an earlier version for lack of parts.

It all works the same IMHO...

#2332 20 days ago

Slings fixed!

1/4" gap on the leaf switches lol

They look pretty nasty so I'm ordering replacements.

Cheap OP fix for routed games. My re import had leaf switches, I took them back to optos.

Your whomobile decals look great !
How can I get one or 2?

also does anyone have the decal sets for doctor who any more?
There used to be a 31 piece set.
Has anyone reproduced these?
My decals look curly and sad.

Im shopping out this game after the repairs and might do a total resto on it if I can get the supplies and parts.

#2335 20 days ago

I think Im just going to shotgun the fliptronics 2...

If the tip 36 is bad it specifically interferes with the ground unless its shorted on.
This would give me no voltage at the flipper coil and no voltage at the connector but 74v at the fuse.

I do have 74v at the fuse.

The coils definitely have seen better days. Probably locked on and burnt the tip 36 after the diode failed...

Replacing a tip36 and the tip102 near it is easy enough.
I might even have a coil with new diodes,

Any other ideas?

Ill work on it some more on monday.

#2337 17 days ago

I'm looking for that 31 piece decal sheet that is out of stock for years...

If you have one, I can have it copied in vinyl.

PM me

Upper flipper fixed!

Seems that a bit of creative wiring was done. It's all back to factory now.

Found a pinched and cut wire for the flipper switch under the CPU board...

Replaced q1 tip36, q6 tip102, q5 tip102.

Reflowed fuse holders.
Reflowed pins on fliptronic board.

Reseated all the IDC connectors but I think I'll just replace them later during the restore process.

So upper flipper lives ! Lol.

It had the wrong coil but I cant complain too much right now.

#2339 14 days ago

Next..

My time expander it really a piece of crap.

Tomorrow I'm pulling it out and rebuilding it using Faz's guide.

Wish me luck lol.

If you have any pointers let me know!

#2340 14 days ago

Thank you to the pinsiders who contributed to my decal search.

Good things are coming!

#2341 14 days ago

Hi guys,
I have some troubles with the mini playfield at this time; it gets stuck around the middle when rising or even when going down, never able to get the third level...obviously it shows the error message from mini playfield...
I checked twice and there is nothing which could block or prevent the MP from going up or down, and thing is, when in the playfield is in the upright position, when I do the mini PF test, it works perfectly fine! But as soon as the playfield is down, it gets stuck again... it's like the the all thing was too heavy to be lifted...I did apply some grease around the metal bracket to help but not efficient.
At this point I don't know what else I could do, except maybe change the motor, so every suggestions will be welcome, thanks!

Could be 2 possible things:

1) your MPF bracket is out
Of alignment, and the motor has to work too hard to get up past a certain point. Is it clean? Remove all the sticky old
Grease and replace
It will silicone lubricant

2) not enough power to the motor. If you remove
The MPF from
The game, and set it on the floor, a 9v battery is enough power to raise and lower the mechanism. hook up the battery to the motor and see if
It will raise and lower.
Start there

Boite de vitesse morte, moteur a changer.

Gearbox's dead, can only change the motor. Very common issue unfortunately.

Not necessarily - check the rear of the cabinet for
Wiring - there is a red power wire that is connecting with a flasher and can get pulled out very easily
