Thanks grumpy I will try that. Playing with a weak flipper is pretty weak!

#1902 6 months ago

Officially in the club as of last night.

#1903 6 months ago

Just listed a set of displays and control board in market place if anyone needs them. Everything worked except credit/ball in play display. Might have been bad ribbon cable but never checked it out. PM me if interested.

Pictures are for Grumpy. No insert flashers in back box or right red playfield flashers working. Getting voltages at only two of the six flasher sockets.

Hey Grumpy, I started tracing wires back from backbox flashers. Look at the green wire smashed under that bolt head. That can't be a good thing. Looks like wire is for G.I. And not flashers though.

#1907 5 months ago

Are these std or led bulbs? If standard then make sure that all four bulbs are good. Manual calls for #63, but #89 will last a lot longer. If you check for voltage at the red wires on the socket both should have @30 volts dc, you can use any of the black wires at the resistors for ground. You should also show voltage on the brown wire on the socket if the bulb is good. And you should have voltage on the orange wire if the other bulb is good. Lastly if you touch a jumper from the single brown/red wire to the black wire on the resistor board all four bulbs should light. If only 2 bulbs light check the ohms of the resistor for the pair that doesn't light.

Quoted from MJW:

That can't be a good thing

#1909 5 months ago

They are standard bulbs. I replaced two of them and now have 30volts at each socket. All flasher lamps work in test mode. I did not realize that one bad bulb stops the flow. Thank!!!! Do I use the same troubleshooting steps for the right red playfield flashers?

#1910 5 months ago

Replaced both bulbs on right side playfield red and now they work in test mode. Boy do I feel dumb. The 63s burnt out as you stated. Learned a lot. Was going by manual but didn't realize 63 have shorter lifespan. Thanks as always for your time. I'll check to see if flasher come on in game mode and then fix that pinched wire.

#1911 5 months ago

If there are #63 bulbs, then they are in pairs as this type of bulb is only 7 volts. First find the power at the first bulb then second bulb then resistor lastly the cpu board transistor. Did the new flashers work now?

#1912 5 months ago

#63 bulbs are brighter then #89 bulbs but last half as long.

Yes to confirm all flashers are working. Happy camper and appreciate it. Thanks.

Playball!

#1915 5 months ago

In the club unexpectedly but happy picking up a High Speed today.Been in the same house 20+ yrs,100% original .Might be picking up a Getaway as well.
Question High Speed Club ?
I want to make my game ad nice as possible ? Can you buy a new playfield for High Speed?
I know the Getaway is being done soon by perfect Playfields in Germany

Thanks Ken White CA

There are very few out there. They come up for sale once in a while at high prices.
Good news is that the Hardtop guys are working on High Speed.
Planning on that myself since I love my Space Shuttle hardtop.

Correction: looked back at that thread, and the Hardtop guys have not actually committed to High Speed.
But lots of requests, and I can't imagine that they won't make it.

Last time I asked (a while ago) they said it was on the list, but not in the next 5 to be done. Hopefully it’s moving up and almost time. I’m dying to get my HS put back together with a hardtop. My play field has been stripped for a few months at this point.

#1919 5 months ago

Classic Arcades makes a nice looking overlay.
I handled one at Pintastic. It seems well done but there is no way to know if the inserts will line up.

Finally finished shopping/refurbishing this HS I bought a few months ago. It was filthy and several issues, but it turned out great! I love it!

So, the High Speed pictured above was put on location that day. I figured it would do alright, but it has really surpassed my expectations. It's kicking major ass! This pin has still got it!

When I bring a game home (new to me or just taking a break from the route) with a few things to work on it almost never fails to have something come up the first week or two after it goes back out. I've gone through the game, play tested as I repair and something always waits until it's out of the shop to rise to the surface.

Hopefully you don't have the same experience.

#1924 4 months ago

The biggest issue Ive had with it was not being able to drop more coin into it.
A bunch-a pin hogs all over it last time I visited ...
A classic, great job shopping it.

I hear you. No problems with this one yet, which means I'm either lucky or getting better at shopping pins.

#1926 4 months ago

Does anyone have spare plastics? I missing the center ones and most of the perimeters are also cracked. Im ball-deep into the restoration any help is appreciated. Please message me!!!

#1927 4 months ago

I can’t decide if I want to wait out the Hardtop. I took everything off the topside and was going to go the overlay route when I discovered the Hardtop. Now I’m thinking I want to put everything back together and put the game on route so it can be played as the Hardtop is not coming as quick as I’d hoped.

HS isn't horrible to tear down. If you need to throw it back together to earn money, go ahead. The hardtop would be way better than the vinyl overlay.

Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.

Wish I was closer to your pin. Nearest public HS location to me is 3+ hours away.

#1930 3 months ago

Howdy. My question is about matching paint colors on the High Speed cabinet.

I will start out with the real sad part of this story. I have a completely empty HS cabinet (and head) which I bought from a guy who parted out a completely fine working HS because he couldn't get as much for it as he wanted when he tried to sell it. (I didn't know about it until after the thing had been vultured.)

I used to own a HS, many years ago, and have missed it ever since. My plan is to convert the HS cabinet into a working mini-bar, complete with fridge and flashing red light. I'm filling in the coin door and flipper and plunger holes with heavy duty frosted plexiglass inserts, which I'll light with LEDs.

I'm going to paint the inside once I get the cab cleaned out, and my plan is to use "High Speed" colors - red for the back and inside, yellow for the facing edge of the shelves, and black for the tops of the shelves (which will be cut to fit the fridge). I'll likely seal it with poly on the inside and clearcoat on the outside.

I can try to do a match, of course, with pictures - I don't really want to chip the cab for a sample to take to the hardware store - but I figured I'd ask here if anybody had exact color matches for the red and yellow in particular.

If anybody has color or pantone numbers from having already done touch-up, I'd appreciate the extra time saver. (I have done the Google on various keyword combinations and not come up with anything useful, alas.) If not, I'll do my best and report back here with results.

(Picture below: I'm putting the cabinet backside on the floor, 90 degrees, and am doing a separate project with the head, likely a lighted wall-mounted trophy cabinet.)

did you get it from sunshine92897 on ebay in New City? I bought the playfield....

I'm holding onto my spare tore-up PF hoping the hardtop becomes reality....

Red and yellow, I'm sure you can figure out the black and white.

On the hunt for High Speed tournament ROM, anyone have a source?

Never heard of it. Who made it?

#1937 3 months ago

Eliminates jackpot carryover apparently. Cheers to Rotordave for hooking me up though. Within hours too. Custom rom from one of his contacts, I figured the guy running a system 11 comp would know

#1938 3 months ago

Sign me up! I have had my High Speed for maybe 6 months now, but just started to shop it out a few days ago. Found my original ramp had a couple of cracks in it, so after weighing a few options, I ordered up a Freeplay40 ramp. Sent my parts off today for him to rivet on a new ramp. I am looking for 2 plastics, which I imagine were broke on everyones game.

Post #194 in this thread shows the plastics I am looking for. Thanks https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/trade-your-plastics/page/4#post-4215863

#1939 3 months ago

Sadly, I'm leaving the group after selling my HS to a local pinhead that really, really wanted one. I didn't really want to let it go but I've had it for over 20 years and need some space for something new. It really is a great game and once you get the freeway loops going it just flows like crazy. The only consolation (other than now having room for another game) is that it went to a great guy who was really excited to get it and share it with his family. "Dispatch, he got away."

BTW - I also have the code for the Tournament ROM so if anyone needs it feel free to hit me up.

Hello all, long time follower, first time poster. Recently joined HS club with my purchase a week ago. My question is this, I feel like when I first brought it home and played it there was a kicker that would keep the ball from coming home at times. It is no longer doing this. Was this just a fluke with the speed of the ball popping it back up or do I have a solenoid not working? Thanks for any insight.

#1941 3 months ago

There is a kicker in the left outlane.

#1942 3 months ago

New to the pin scene and HS is my second machine so here goes my next question. The top right flipper is weak and will not get the ball up the ramp. On a suggestion from a local shop I replaced the sleeve. It helped a little but still will not get up the ramp. Is it time for a new solenoid?

#1943 3 months ago
Quoted from bowtech:

No, either clean and adjust the EOS switch or replace it with new one. Also clean the flipper cabinet switches. PS you clean these type of contacts (tungsten) with a metal file.

Quoted from GRUMPY:

Ok, I'm guessing the Eos switch is the leaf switch? It can cause that big of a problem?

#1945 3 months ago

When you energize the flipper 100% of the power needs to go thru these contacts to give the coil its high power, as they burn and corrode from arcing the coil power goes down until a point that the flipper doesn't even move any more.

Ok, i cleaned it with no real change. Do i just replace that flippers switch or is there possibly something going on with the main flippers switch too?
