So under the ramp which is solenoid 10 I believe low Diverter. Am I missing something here?

#10652 2 years ago

Issue is when the diverter engages to the open position it doesn't stay open very long and closes quickly..

Did I wire these wires to the coil wrong?

#10653 2 years ago

Wait I think I put the coil on backwards, correct? Lol

#10654 2 years ago

Maybe this will work better.. which way should the coil be mounted just seems like there’s no good way to mount it. I am going to use electrical tape and cover lugs

#10655 2 years ago

This is a problem.

Do you have this bracket sitting on the coil sleeve flange?

Yeah I think it's working now, I bent the bracket a little so it was flush.. This coil doesn't have a notch like most to hold it in place.. Just played a game on it and it seems to be working now.

Glad it works but it looks backwards to me now. Wiring is correct though. Weird.

I found someone on here who had a picture of theirs and I noticed mine was on backwards according to what they had..

#10659 2 years ago

Something doesnt look right. The bracket should be sitting flush with the coil, not on top of it.

Thanks G money mods. Tried twice to rotate pic and can’t delete it. Sorry.

When I take the pic image is straight. When I attach it rotates..... weird.

Is this the correct part to replace this plastic piece?? Just the plastic piece on my one sling arm is broken. It’s not associated to this game on Marcos website.

Quoted from Kobaja:

Unless I missed it ... this parts breakout is not in the manual (seems odd). But I’m fairly certain now it is the correct part as this part is listed on other mechs in the game. Likely all the same.

#10666 2 years ago

It looks correct to me. Although on my Getaway, they are white plastic, not black.

It looks right but you can buy the whole arm with the plastic piece already installed.

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

Diverter-Hi test causes the diverter gate to open and close. The Diverter-Lo test doesn't do anything observable or hearable on my Getaway.
May need someone else to chime in regarding what triggers the diverter-lo during gameplay. Credit dot may not go away until it is actually triggered once.

Working on a Getaway for a friend of a friend. The Outhole coil is definitely bad as the sleeve is melted to the plunger. During solenoid test, the Hi diverter fires but no sound during diverter Lo. Also, enable 1,2&3 have no sounds (Just magnets right?) My question is, where is the diverter Lo located and is it a solenoid like diverter Hi? Should i hear it fire?

Diverter Low is the diverter holding open under low power - like when you hold flippers on. To test hold the diverter open with your hand, turn on Diverter Low. It should remain open. If it stays open it is working if it closes at all it is not working/failing.

Enable are the magnets. Best way to test them overall is in the supercharger test.

I finally installed my Pinduino. Thanks to lyonsden for shipping the unit and Mr_Tantrum for his getaway code. Its looks fantastic. I got the DIY kit and its fairly easy if you can solder a little bit.

Nice looking condition!! Had this machine been re-decaled previously? Just seems to be very new looking, as far as colour fade goes, but still been played enough for wear around the flipper button.

#10677 2 years ago

These cling on protectors from Titan Pinball are great for protecting the decals around the buttons. I have them on all my games.

#10679 2 years ago

Hi everyone I just joined the club. I got a nice machine but it has a problem. Once a game has started without lauching the ball if i hit the flipper i get points. And if I hit the flippers rapidly the diverter on the ramp opens and closes and it gives me 2 million points. It acts like the accelerator is working. In test mode all switches look good and register hits. The optos for the ramp and it the accelerator are closed. I have no Idea what could be causing this. Any advise? Thanks

I had a similar issue when I purchased mine 4 years ago: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/getaway-club-dispatch-run-a-make-on-license-plate-kingpin/page/52#post-3180197

Most likely the vibration of the flipper coils firing is triggering a switch or switches.

First thing to do is to go into go into switch test mode, activate your flippers, and see if/what switches are reacting. Then check these switches (wiring is soldered well, switch screws are tight, test them by hand to see if/how sensitive they are, etc.)

#10681 2 years ago

Ok I went into Test switch and nothing besides the flippers came up on the dmd. Tapped on the playfield nothing. Could the opto board under the playfield cause this?

I believe that is the gate for the ball return trough to stop the balls from bouncing back into the outhole.

Quoted from Mancave:

No, these are the original decals. I believe these Getaways have decals that start a bit lower and its the painted section of the cabinet is what is worn around the flipper buttons. Its a nice game, but I am still tearing it apart and polishing the playfield. I am not a mods person so I just intend on refurbishing the parts that need it and get it playing stupid fast like my other Richie games.

So far I have replaced the GI connector and done some major cleaning on the inside of the cabinet. It plays 100% and the boards are all original and in great shape. Its been a well loved machine for awhile...definitely in a home collection but needs $200 in replacement parts and and some elbow grease.

It will look good next to the BSD I just finished refurbishing.

My cabinet decals look pretty good but it is interesting to see how it faded. The left side is almost perfect but the bottom front is faded and right side is partially faded. It makes me wonder about where is was on route and how they had it displayed. Obviously the left side was against a wall or next to another pin but where was it on location... I think in a smoke filled bar near a window somewhere in Germany.

Anyway, your point is well taken, it's rare to see the cabinet decals look that vibrant.

Finally got my machine delivered. Added a little chrome molding to the back box. Cabinet looks good, did a little black touch up here and there. Need to shop it out, the usually bands, LEDs, and a good cleaning.

Haha! true. Maybe better than the other god awful mods people put on this game.

I'm going to need to replace the rear ramp flap(the one that goes up and down). Where can I get one?

Thanks in advance,
Pete

You can cut and make your own. I ordered a sheet of blue spring steel from Steve at PBR for my Checkpoint ramp. Traced the old ramp flap, cut and reinstalled!

#10695 1 year ago

Just finished cleaning mine up. Full playfield strip and some cabinet clean up. Comet LEDs. Time to put it in the lineup.

Thank you. Game is pretty original except for the HAPP coin door. Pretty easy game to shop I must say. Tons of metal to polish but no ramps to flame.

Photo tip . . . You might want to close the door to the water closet next time you’re showing off a pin. I’m just glad nobody was on the throne.

Had the same issue with my game room bathroom. Went to Home Depot, bought and installed an auto-closing hinge and adjusted it so the door is only open a crack when released. Much happier with the aesthetics.
