Working on a Gottlieb pinball pool
Here is the issues I have
This game has all new aftermarket boards
Power supply and driver board are rottendog
The CPU is from flippp.com
1. When hitting the drop targets the lights are not lighting up on the center of the playfield with the associated targets.
2. Both kickouts where taped over on top of the playfield and all the wires were cut.
The tech before me said the kickouts cant be used with the aftermarket boards
Is this true?
Any insight on this would be great

time for a new tech. I wonder if they bother to set the game when they installed that thing. When it boots up it should show the selected game on one of the displays

i said the same thing about the other tech.
this is thing is a wiring mess all over the place probably never used a soldering iron either.
anyone with a wiring diagram for the kickouts for starters?

This what I got from the other tech on this machine.

The 2 kick out holes were not compatible with the new CPU and driver board and were thus disabled

 

As far as I know the other features on the game worked as designed when the game was sold

The new Pascal CPU board has somewhat different software with it so not all of the original features work as in the old CPU and driver board

Can anyone confirm this?

I have never heard this. The pascal board will disable coils if certain tests fail.

Here's the manual: https://www.flippp.fr/media/manual/manual_PI-1X4_en.pdf Look at page 18 & 19

I never heard of this either
I am going over to fix this next Wednesday
And wire everything back up and see how it goes. I will report back when I'm done
Thanks for your help this far

make sure you test each coil by manually moving the plunger and resistance of the coil

Exactly what I was going to do first thing

Call or email PBR and get yourself a manual. I have a SS Joker Poker manual (system one) from PBR and it has the schematic included.
Are you familiar with "pinball repair"? Clay is the man for any pinball repair. Please take the time and read the link below.

P.S. Get rid of that tech. I have owned many a "System One" pins in my days and everything works perfect with Ni-Wumph boards.

I am very familiar with pinball repair
I just didnt have a schematic handy at the moment so I can look it over before I go over there to fix the issues. The manual is sitting next to the game just wanted to get a jump on it. Thanks for the advise

Update on this post
I need to get a few pics of the left and right kickout holes underneath wiring along with the switch wiring for both.
This game has too many wires cut for some reason. Also game has a Pascal CPU and is setup for pinball pool but some of the lights are not lighting after you hit the drops.
Any help would be great

#13 3 years ago

Just a quick update on this post
I have almost everything working the way it should except the top left rollover switch,
The letter "a" is not registering and its tied to the left inlane switch also the letter "a"
I have traced all the wiring everything seems correct, the switches are cleaned and gapped correctly. What am I missing here.

Does the switch test with the pascal board show it works?
