In January I brought home a Pinbot and have since torn down the playfield and cleaned everything above. This is my 3rd game to tear down and tinker with, so I'm not a complete newb, but I'm still cutting my teeth.
One of the fist things I did when I got the game was remove the plumb bob, remove the tilt ball, disabled the coin mech tilt switch, and disabled the under playfield tilt switch. I know... I know... I know... but I like to be able to nudge.... Are there any other tilt switches on Pinbot? I don't see any others and nothing seems to be shorting or making contact with these switches.
Tuesday night I got everything put back together and played several games, no problem, though I had to adjust the 100,000 vortex switch, Advance X ramp arm so it wouldn't stick, and adjust a pop bumper switch that wasn't connecting. Wednesday everything was swell. Played probably 20 games throughout the day with no issue. Then last night in the middle of a ball I got a random tilt. This happened randomly 2 times before I called it a night. Today I went to start a game and as soon as I hit start, with the ball in the trough.... TILT! I turned it off and back on started a game, it kicked out the ball, pull the plunger and ... TILT! Ball drains and.... TILT! Turn off. Manually kick out ball to plunger. Turn on. Start game. Ball 1 plays fine, drains, and.... TILT! Could there be something wrong with the drain outhole?
Any ideas what to do for system 11 games? If its something more than adjusting a switch or soldering something simple, I am out of my element. I've read about capacitors going bad, bad dip switches, etc. If that's the case, I'll have to take the machine to someone, but I hope you all might give me some simple suggestions that may work.
