Hey System 11 and general tech pros! I bought a Bally Game Show in June, played it 5 times and it "blew up" Well, died. I was busy all summer, didn't care much and was refurbing my FT, so GS was on the back burner, forward a few months and now i'm at it!
In June, when it blew, the right sling was stuck on, I mean stuck right on. I got the power killed, but it had smoked a transitor, I had the board out to get repaired (corrosion and a couple other issues) and the repair cost was high enough it was feasible to buy a new rottendog (it hurt my soul to toss this much $$ at this GS, but what the hell do ya do.......)
Brand new MPU installed. Right sling coil replaced, ripped entire PF down, cleaned everything up, shopped the hell out of it, removed bubbled up mylar, waxed, shiny, new LED's, flame polished ramps. POWERED BACK UP TONIGHT and right sling locked on instantly, I had my finger on the switch and killed it instantly. I pulled the IDE connector off of J7 on the Aux Power Board. Powered it back up, came up nicely, booted, told me missing pinball of course I was...
It goes into attract mode nicely and I can go through the entire settings menu. Now, where do I start? Suggestions? Somehting making that coil hit? Something else shorted out somewhere? Thx so much in advance.
