Does anyone have custom cards for their getaway?
Forgot where I downloaded them from but a search on google should help. Here are the ones I downloaded a few years back. Enjoy!
Don't know if this is the exact key switch you purchased but here is the instructions for the one I bought.
Finally got my Getaway 100% working. Burnt connector was fixed a little while ago and now the supercharger is fixed. Did another factory reset so hopefully the scoring glitch will be fixed. Played a pretty good game and got a legit 720m.
Glad you got your Getaway all fixed up! But really after your fix, 720 million? I've owned Getaway for over 5 years and have barely cracked 300 million on 3 ball. Sure your scoring on Getaway is working correctly? Seems over the top!! ...
I've read several posts on this Getaway Club thread regarding the rear lift ramp not working properly. My lift ramp is staying locked in the up position. After going in the switch edge test the switch is working properly. When going into the lift ramp test, the large solenoid engages which is for the up position but I do not hear the small coil fire for the release: SM1-28-900-DC. When I manually release the plate from the the notch it does position the ramp down. So there is no apparent binding between the shaft, ramp and solenoids.
I'm guessing it's an issue with the SM1-28-900-DC coil. All soldering looks clean to it's lugs. Not familiar with this type of coil since it's so small. Because of it's location it's hard to determine whether the coil operates with a mini plunger or it's a magnet pulse that trips the plate to the down position.
Anyone that has knowledge or has experienced this particular issue on their Getaway, I would really appreciate some feedback.
Thanks in advance!

So when you run the T:Test, T14:Ramp test, the ramp fails to move up and down?
When running the ramp test, the up coil engages for the up position but fails to drop down. I can manually trip the notch plate to make the ramp drop to the down position. I'm not hearing the smaller coil engage which trips the release plate. Because of the location of the assembly underneath the play field, this one could be a tough one to trouble shoot!!
Remember with the NVRAM installed, the date and time only advances when the machine is turned on. When off, the date and time will not advance until it is rebooted. At least that's how mine works with the NVRAM installed in my games.
I pulled my Power Driver Board due to a leaking capacitor. Of course in a hurry, I did not label the IDC/ molex connectors when pulling them out.
I might struggle putting back all the connectors in the right spot on my Getaway. Could someone please post a few pics of the connectors on your PD board (A-12697-1), so I have some sort of reference. I would really appreciate it!!
Thanks so much, Have a great Memorial weekend!

I agree 110% and if those pics don't help, here's one I took many years ago when I installed a PinLed Power Driver Board (Franks Famous battery mod after that..)
Only thing I'd say is repair, replace that 120 molex and pin set
Good luck![quoted image][quoted image]
Thank you tiltmonster! Always happy to have reassurance come board hook-up.
Quick question Getaway members... I just received my XPin DMD 4096 display for Getaway. The instructions states to remove the -100/-100V fuse. I'm
guessing it's either F-601 or 602 on the DMD Controller board, but not sure. Hopefully someone that might know will chime in!
Appreciate the help and this Getaway Club thread!!
Thanks Mr. Tantrum! Waiting for a email reply to confirm. If I was a betting man... F-602 is the proper one to remove. Thank you sir!!
Quoted from Jigs:
Start with adjusting your habitrail at the slingshot plastic. It can be seen in your pic. Adjust it to the middle position and see how it performs. Currently it it to the far right and causing a log jam.
This was the exact problem I had. I could hear the coil fire to release a ball but the disappearing post got jammed against the wireform. Simple adjustment at the slingshot adjusting it over slightly did the trick!
