    I text him and he is looking for a trade but will consider selling it outright if no offers. What could be causing the fuse to pop and is it a good deal at $600.00 given the repair needed? Found this here https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/flash-overheat-and-f2-25amp-fuse-blows Thanks in advance for the help.

    No, Flash is a 850-1000 game all shopped, rebuilt and bulletproofed. If playfield is worn, Backglass is flaking etc., that price comes down. They made a shit load of these. This one, with no pics of playfield or glass, I'd pay like 300-350 with the unknowns not to mention it will need the necessary board work all system 3-6's have to have done.
    I wouldn't pay 600 unless the game is a stunning example, unfortunately these pics don't show if it is.

    What’s going on with the backglass? It looks like the score windows have been painted over? Either that or I’m seeing things.

    I’m looking for a Flash myself. I don’t see many below $700, but I would want to know a lot more about this machine, including playfield close up pics before I would be interested.

    I feel like this machine is gonna need more hours in repair than the hours of fun I'm gonna get out of it. Would be good to learn pinball electronics and theory of operation on though if you got it for $400 or less.

    Wonder if someone was sealing the backglass and covered them up.............

    It looks like the lock bar, coin door, and rails have been painted too. I paid 400 for mine in really nice shape off Facebook but I see nice ones going in our area for about 1K now. I'd walk away from this one honestly and wait for a better one since so many are out there.
