Rebuilt one of these as my first real pin. Was fantastic. Bottom pop bumper now locks on at start. Transistor must have blown on the driver board. Tested the transistor and it tests fine with a multimeter. Ive disconnected the coil for now. Any other ideas?

Lower pop bumper locks on on power up. Game all fine if disconnected.

I put new plastics onto mine and it did wonders. Mine were pretty good just faded. Few cracks on the ball guide sections but were only noticeable if you looked for them. Getting the purple back as it should be instead of the faded grey they had become did wonders to refresh the game

Yep. Count down starts at whichever is the current sequence countdown target lit. Very annoying when one of your drop switches doesn’t register 100% of the time and you need to use the online rollover to register it

Manual is available on ipdb which shows the pinout on the connectors. Note that the number next to the wire indicates the pin not the order it appears as a line

Weirdbissue has appeared in my maccine tonight. When putting a 2nd ball into the lock it will continually reset both sets of drops and then eventually just end the ball and count off bonus.

After doing this, starting a game with 2 balls in the stepper, a ball won’t be kicked out from the trough. I’m suspecting maybe a trough switch issue, but that doesn’t explain the drop target resets. Seems like it’s triggering a nee ball cycle but not incrmenting the ball counter then giving up and ending the ball.

Also got replacement drop targets to fit, but they aren’t tombstone style and have the extra flange on the sides at the top. Have seen machines with both styles

Definitely trough switch issue or adjustment Kicked 2 balls into shooter lane on a ball

Check that the switch in the lock is registering by going into switch test. http://techniek.flipperwinkel.nl/ballyss/rep/index3.htm
Also check that the trough switches are adjusted and registering correctly.

The weather here over the break has been horribly hot and smoke filled due to fires up and down our east coast line. I have spent a little time giving my Flight which was a moderately rough cabinet a little bit of love. The machine originally came to me as a box of disassembled parts and over the years has gradually been rebuilt and given small makeovers. The machine is very very far from perfect. the old MDF has swollen and delimitated in places. Its not smooth, but it is 10 times better than it was.

NIce, what did you use as spacers between the new clear inland guides and the printed plastic?

Far from perfect but a vast improvement from what it was. Passes the 3 step test (take 3 steps back and it looks good)
