its ALIVE !!!!!

it wound up being a loose connection.
I turned on the power and a game began!

Amazingly, the Supercharger not only works , but it works well.
Now to play a few dozen games and find all the trouble spots.

I'm thinking it needs a new set of hinges to start
I'm going to try and bend them back into shape first and see how that works out.
I'd rather spend the $$ on fun stuff instead of hinges.

Interesting my right hinge is shot too...must have been a bad batch...never had this issue with any of my other B/W games...

The slides are new to me, but from what I’ve read, almost all of the original hinges
Are bent and don’t work well at all.
There are a few posts about it.

Well that board taps Into your 12v to supply your 5v, so I'm guessing your tapping out that supply...I use an ezsbc 12v regulator whenever I get a new machine...replace that small cap next to it too

#11306 22 days ago

how come I dont have issue with my 2x other william pins?

not sure i want to go into removing the board and install a cap to be able to use khar product...

I would imagine your 12v regulated supply is overstressed or just needs a rebuilding...I've found bad caps on low time machines so just age can kill them...

You clearly have a 5v AND a 12v issue... Your PS is failing, rebuild your PS and you wont even need the Kahr board.

Well, you need soldering skills, and then purchase this... https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/WPC-PDA12697X
The components you'll replace are primarily in the upper right quarter of the power/driver (biggest) board in the back box.

As far as how, its pretty self-explanatory, match each component, remove the old, install the new. Or do a simple main forum search, there is tons of info.
There's also resource info if you want to send it out to someone who will supply the bits and do the work for you.

#11311 20 days ago

Well, I'm back in the Pinduino game on my supercharger loop. Just to refresh, I was having some supercharger speed issues and the Pinduino LED strip was one of a few factors causing the slow downs. So, I removed the strip and ordered a thinner one off eBay. The new strip work exactly like the old, but is less than half the width and doesn't obstruct the ball whatsoever.

It's a zero sum gain - for you to join the club, someone must leave the club . . . happy and sad at the same time.

It is easy to damage the PCB traces when desoldering the old components. I highly recommend that you find a friend with good soldering skills or send the board out for the work.

Good read through on pinwiki for all things power related troubleshooting for WPC power board. https://pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Williams_WPC#Game_resets
(section 6.17.15 talks about replacing the filter capacitors with the same warning as I mentioned above.)

Yeah, I found I needed to slightly raise mine above the loop when I installed it. Not by any amount that's been noticed probably only a millimeter

Hey, where's the best place to get that key for the start button? I've looked around, but none look as cool as in the pics above.

Thanks,

Mezel Mods has it in green or red. I originally bought green but didn't like it, so switched to red: https://mezelmods.com/collections/the-getaway-high-speed-2-pinball-mods/products/getaway-high-speed-2-pinball-led-key-mod?variant=888124621

I agree for a no longer manufactured pin, it's all a zero sum game. I was looking for someone who perhaps wanted to move on to another game that would bring them equal if not more happiness. I was hoping for happy and happy at the same time.

BTW, Yours looks AMAZING!

Quoted from marioparty34:

I just meant that the group is always a little sad when someone leaves us (wasn't thinking about the seller), but happy when a newcomer joins. These pins do seem to come up fairly often (they produced over 13,000 of them), so I wish you the best and a short waiting time.

Quoted from marioparty34:

Thanks. Since you are fairly local to me (north Fort Worth near Texas Motor Speedway), you're welcome to come over and play it.

#11325 20 days ago

How did I not see that? Thanks. I'll put it on my list.

#11328 20 days ago

did anyone see interactive undercap illumination?
I'm imagining something red, glowing.bumpers should do white flashes. police light could reflect on the ground as well.

nutty - thissounds like it could be up your alley...

As a followup - about a week ago I posted about the automatic shooter on my Getaway not always propelling the ball fast enough to make it completely around the inner orbit like it does most of the time. As it turns out, the problem was that a wire soldered to a lead on the plunger coil was close enough to the plunger to make contact with the plunger when it was activated, thus diminishing the plunger force and slowing down the ball. I moved this wire out of the way and there is no longer any problem. Thanks for the help solving this problem.

Anyone can comment on build quality?

No , however our main restorer here has had several , I've seen a couple and they are superior to many out there. The dimpiling and cut outs are great the clearcoat is like mirror on his other playfields

#11337 15 days ago

That would have to be the best alternative translite i've seen for this machine

Hello to all

Yes, the Getaway Playfields are not in stock on our shop. Before we finish the run, the playfields are sold out on our pre-order list.
Doesnt matter how many playfields we produce per run, they are always sold out.
Here are some pictures of the current stock of HS2 Playfields.
The HS2 playfields will be finished "end milling" today. This afternoon or tomorrow morning we are taking them to the paint shop for the first clear coat.
They will ship out approx. end of May, depending on how well the clear coat cures.
Keep well.

Regards from Hamburg

The Getaway Playfields, and all our repro playfields, are genuen Silk Screened, not digital prints.
The colors are bright and the black is a black and not a grey shade like digital prints.
Playfiels have pilot holes, dimples, on both side, top and bottom.

I am so tempted, but I've never done a playfield swap and just trying to think through things to determine if I want to undertake such a project.

#11345 14 days ago
Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

I am so tempted, but I've never done a playfield swap and just trying to think through things to determine if I want to undertake such a project.

Having done my Gorgar - it can be a decent challenge. System 6 boards have the benefit of only having a couple playfield looms making it somewhat easier to test the playfield outside of the machine. Same can not be said with the WPC series unfortunately. Nice thing about this game is that there are no drop targets to tweak. I had a hard time lining my drop targets up on my Gorgar. Pop bumpers were the next largest pain point. With removing and relocating so many wires you're bound to come across problems to troubleshoot no matter how careful you are.

This probably isn't the hardest to swap compared to more complex playfields. Though I can't speak at all to mounting the rail hardware as the older Williams ones didn't have any. I've heard this is one heavy playfield if you're taking the existing playfield out without taking off the super charger.

Should you decide to tackle it - plan on 80 hours, and I found it very useful to push playfield pieces into insulation foam board in their rough positions so that it made things easier to match up parts later on.

That being said, I would do it again. It'd be between this machine and my FirePower to tackle next.

My playfield is decent and no noticeable wear , but I bought one just because it will be there if I need it!
sold 2 other HS2 and not letting this one go!

I saw someone send their super charger out to get polished...where did you send it? Also for those of you that have added the led lighting to it is it just a simple led strip or is it connected to a micro controller..I've seen one mod for that...but pricey

I had mine chromed though. Looks good and not issues.

Do not "polish" your supercharger, you will ruin it (trust me, I tried on my first one not realizing that any type of polishing compound will destroy the finish). You could probably have it "chromed", but may be cheaper just to buy a new one (about $70 at Marco Specialties).
