I picked up a Fireball ii on Monday and it is in beautiful condition, but there are a few minor issues I can't quite seem to figure out. One of the issues is regarding the sound and the other is regarding the Little Demon Post.
Sound Issues: So all of the sounds are there and working, but some of them are excessively loud compared to others. Background tones, drop target/ stand-up target sounds and some other sounds are all at a relatively normal level, but then the pop bumper effects, slingshot effects, multi-ball start sound effect and the bonus collect sound are extremely loud. I have adjusted the volume from both knobs (on the squak and talk board and on the coin door.) All of the sound effects go up and down in volume using both knobs, but those specific few sound effects are just so much louder than the rest of them. This means I can't keep the volume up for the background tone etc because the pop bumper and other affected sound effects become excessively loud. I was thinking maybe some of the capacitors were drying out on the sound board but I don't know if that makes any sense.
Little Demon Post Issue: This one is far more simple. Sometimes the little demon post just fires on its own without hitting the button. I checked the gaps on the cabinet switch for it and it seems okay. It's kind of acting up like some pop bumpers do on these older bally's, where they fire when the flippers are pressed. This is annoying because it uses up the demon credits you need to help keep the ball in play and by the time you actually need them, they can all be gone. So any input as to what may be causing that would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for looking and any advice you give me!
