Having a party as we speak. Gnr stop working. No errors. Flippers move super slow and no coils fire. Where do I even start. Very odd.

Worry about it after the party, then start checking fuses.

Well, I removed the glass with a buddy and it exploded everywhere. No biggee. I set it on the ground wrong. Don't drink and tech. I'm offering the second $100 challenge. This shit tripping me out. Help me fix and get 100 paypal. First " I'll take challenge" is up to bat. Pinguy, jump in.

I can't help you find all the pieces back and glue them together, but this is how it finally should look like:

Lol. This is an interesting post. Followed.

At what stage of the party are you at right now? aka how many drinks are we looking at?

Ahhh hindsight....

My head hurts from booze and this game. Again, competent fixer here, no clue where to start. Funny, that glass shattered into a million pieces. Safety glass. I once drop glass off a bar stools, nothing. This was barely a bump. No worries. I have extra sheets.

Here is a video of issue. Bridge rectifier?

Ignore, stupid fuse. Case closed.

Great. Also, never set the glass down on the edge unless you have a cushioned surface such as carpet.

Sounds right to me. You nailed it right out of the gate.

Plus you would have saved him the cost of new glass if he'd listened to your advice.

Bump because $100 buys a lot of beef jerky.

Thankfully, my one time was just Golden Tee Fore monitor glass and not some hard to find pinball glass. Funny feeling, how it expanded and then exploded all in a split second.

I hope the OP never needs technical help again. Or maybe I hope that he does?

#18 3 years ago

Shouldn't that say "I hope the OP never gets technical help again"?

Give the man his $100 already. He fulfilled his end of the agreement.

See. Where are those idiots in the other thread that claim that temp changes don't burst tempered glass? Told them many times backglass and playfield glass burst when you set it on concrete or have hot/cold hands when handling. Seen it happen many many times. Newbs don't believe.

On the plus side, at least it burst on the ground instead of as you are sliding it out of the game.

Everyone needs it to happen just once for their respect level for tempered glass to go WAY up.

even if it happens to them, it seems a lot on here, still wouldn't believe that temp change caused it. They think you have to drop it, kick it or try to fold it in half in your hands for it to break.

I totally believe. I've had a sheet explode in my hands while vertical, not touching anything except my hands.

yup, seen it happen here. Told my buddy to hang to a sheet for me and burst right in his hands. Stood there with two cracked pieces still in his hands. Told that to the idiots in the tempered glass thread, and they denied it could happen.

#25 3 years ago

I had a sheet laying against the wall in my carport before I knew of setting it on concrete. The glass literally disappeared. Only a few kernels were left. Some was embedded in the wall. The rest I have no idea

Didn't up read the post above that said, "we're good"? But thanks for being a white knight.

We are good. Not trying to sound rude, but that's all I am gonna say.

Sure, I'm a white knight for asking them if you gave them the $100 you offered to who ever could fix the problem. You're not a man of your word, and I'm just pointing it out.

Funny thing is, I've gotten and given plenty of tech help without offering or accepting a penny.

Now excuse me while i gallop away on my stallion in search of the next $100 to fix my game injustice thread
