I think maybe someone misunderstood my intent. I offered the fix for free! I did not offer a board fix for free! However, I did offer to aid in that regard for a donation. Even that is left to the individual that phones. I do however post free air-time daily on several other sites! Considering what I do and the level, I really do not think a small donation is unheard of. Would ya rather donate 20 bucks and fix a 250 dollar board, or muck it up and have to buy one? Personally I would love to of had an opportunity like that in the day. I am not a young man....and have several health issues that require many doctors help. They essentially donate time for me and hundreds of others. I use the services weekly and I am quite glad to have that opportunity. But, each and every time I leave it is twenty bucks! And each and every person that goes pays it. I have thousands of schematics on files that I refer to. These were not free, some were acquired freely over the years but most came from Startek journals and pinball manuals I paid for. I presently own, and store hundreds of pins...likely to be donated one day to a museum....until that day comes this ole man continues to work in bad health to maintain an environment for them. Also...I think it would have been nice to post my message entirely instead of making it sound like I am raping folks. I've spent ten hours or more stepping folks through delicate repairs. I believe my message said...." I will help you fix the problem for Free, a donation is greatly appreciated!" I believe that is fair my friend! This very site appreciates donations, does it not? I also stated in that message my credentials. 45 years in the amusement industry, and, electrical engineer that you speak with. That is a very strong and dynamic duo coupled. The message I sent posted the fix and the methodology. Voltages were mentioned but nothing about Resistance!! Methinks resistance should have been measured before voltage but I did not see those from the posting. On a phone you can gauge an individuals ability to test and repair. In a forum it's very difficult. Presently I do mobile repairs in several states and rest assured my rates are half to two thirds less than my competitions. Peruse the pinball owners group and you will see that I offer a time slot for several hours every other day that is 100 percent free! I do this out of my personal love for pinball. I started playing at age five and at age 62 still play. I was repairing pins by age twelve, at least the e.m.'s. I am a dying breed in the Bingo world. If you own a bingo you know just how hard it is to find anybody...much less someone that is knowledge oriented with 45 years of experience. Feel free to phone anytime with an issue....my time is free....donations are greatly appreciated!!!
