I somehow convinced a friend to buy a roller disco as his first pinball game! He isn't a member here, and I will be doing the work to get it up. I wanted to make this club to get any info, tips and talk about the game going!

I'll post pics of the game we picked up, but it is pretty clean! Little wear on the pf, some planking, a tad bit of flaking on the BG if you look close. Boards look ultra clean.

Here is the IPDB link

Looking for anyone with pics of there game with LED's or color rubbers to give/get an idea of what it looks like.

Here’s the game

They ran a remote battery pack and put a diode through....

It looks like they ran the recommended grounding wires too: one on the power board, one on the main CPU board, and one on the controller board. That's good.

Details on the game:

System 1
3 balls

Rubber rings:
7 x A-10217 - 5/16"
4 x A-10219 - 1"
2 x A-10220 - 1 1/2"
4 x A-10221 - 2"
1 x A-10222 - 2 1/2"
1 x A-10223 - 3"
4 x A-10224 - 3 1/2"
4 x A-13151 - Flipper - 3/8" wide x 1 1/2"

I haven’t look through tsb’s, but they did ground those two boards via solder points to the ground on the backbox!

The game doesn’t boot, found the big transistor on the controller board is locked on. Newb mistake, I touched it by accident checking for hot/locked on things and it burned my finger....

Ok, so I actually have a problem with the game...Never posted that!

Bought the game with it "lights up but doesn't work"
Upon checking the game out, the J2 plug to the driver board on the PSU was not connected. Got it to location and plugged everything in, that transistor Q45 was hot as all heck.

Dug into the game:
Left drop target reset coil is burned and the sleeve must be melted, mech will not move.
Under PF transistor has wire not soldered to it
Not all lights on PF come up
Displays do not light up
coin up wouldn't work

Went today to test PSU
all fuses tested good
J1 on PS had correct V's
J2 was missing 12 or 14
J3 IIRC was good
(I should of wrote this stuff down)
Tested both bridge rectifiers in cabinet - tested good

I ordered the full PS rebuild kit from Big daddy
Will order coil/sleeve for left drop reset
Looking to source quality 2N3055's for the driver board and under PF remote

Anyone know what length the A17891 coil uses for the drop target reset?
Anything else I should test/look at? I am gone for 1 week so I will not be able to see the game again (good for waiting on parts!)

Ordered the PSU rebuild kit from BDE, but no schematics to help.. So I am waiting to hear back from PBR if they have that, otherwise force flow had a good link on the pinwiki that sort of helps.

http://pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Gottlieb_System_1#Recommended_Power_Supply_Updates_.26_Repairs

Ordered all clear rubber (per owner)
Installed new transistor under PF and also found the knocker coil at the front right of the cab was seized and disconnected.

Has anyone ever seen a Roller Disco with the disco ball installed on the top? Be pretty cool if you could add one that turns. The one currently for sale on kijiji has a disco ball on top with lights. Trying to see if I can add a Google Home to automatically play disco music when the machine is turned on. Thanks.

I haven’t seen one I person, but I have on eBay or a vendor selling the game I think!

I’m checking dip switches etc and flipped a few and now forgot what the old settings are.

What is on vs off?

Not able to find a good method for removing these pins... I have not purchased the molex tool but I’m about to.

I just use a very small jewelers flat blade for removal. You can see the little catch on the new pin. That is what you are aiming for. It takes a little practice to figure it out. Sometimes it is just easier to cut them off and replace them. Most sizes are still available.

By the way, I'm a member of the club too.

So I have heard that there was several Roller Disco prototype pins made with blacklights. Does anyone have a photo of one they can share? I was kicking around the idea to make mine a blacklight version of the game. I can go old school or simply replace all the GI with blacklight LEDs. The playfield was specifically made for it.

I got it finally! Posted in the sys1/sys80 thread as well. Ended up having to dremel down some paper clips (my small jewelers tools were at home). Re-pinned and now the switches are working! still need to figure out the sound and game start. I think there are some hacks as it is in some weird freeplay.

Glad to see other owners/members! ordo is the owner and my coworker, but I'm helping him get into this crazy hobby. He is excited to play.
