There is a 1974 Dealer’s Choice pinball machine in Evansville, Indiana that has decided to give its owner a hard time. All was good for a long time until just recently when the power was flipped and the machine wouldn’t stop cycling a score reel and didn’t reset. The owner jumped on YouTube and learned how to reset the score reel by hand… machine started a game just fine. Days later, owner turned machine on and again the it kept cycling and wouldn’t reset. So… back to YouTube and owner gets the idea to buy a small file and begin filing “all” the contacts in the machine. Well, now the owner needs help from an experienced EM tech in the area. I don’t think I can walk him through troubleshooting without being at the pin myself.

Anybody in the Evansville area do work on Williams EMs and can help? Please post here or PM me, I’ll relay information to the owner since he doesn’t use Pinside.

Yep, this is a case of a friend of a friend. Got a text today to see if I could help. After a few texts back and forth, I figured the 4 State separation was an obstacle too large to overcome.

Get in touch with this group. They are fantastic! Importantly, they will not only fix the problem easily via virtual meeting, they teach you how to troubleshoot and repair all em machines!
