If the fuses are good, I recommend pulling the connectors that are midway in the harnesses and reseat them. Check the connector on the top rh board in the backbox - the one on a pigtail.

The GI flashing is controlled by a mechanical relay. I think there is a test in the coil test section. LED bulbs shouldn't have an affect on the relay.

Check the fuses & fuse holders. Electric troubleshooting can be a challenge.

Quoted from HS1STPIN:

Hello everyone....great to see all the support here for High Speed.
I'm so excited. I'm suppose to have my first pinball machine delivered today. I'm excited to say its a HIGH SPEED pin.
I will post pictures once it has been delivered. I have played this pin since I was a kid.
Looking forward to getting to know the pinball machine inside and out.
I love some of the mods I have seen in the forum. Especially the clear ramp with road stickers.
FreePlay40 - I hope you still have some for sale. I tried to find some links but couldn't find the link to the stickers for the bottom
of the clear ramp. If someone has the link to the stickers and stop light mod cover (yellow) that would be great.
It sounds like FreePlay40 has the mod for re-location to the back left.

Congrats on your first pin!

Worth fixing the original. Acid damage can be a worse repair than what you have there.

Quoted from La_Porta:

Hi fellas! Today I will have the chance to look at a High Speed that is being sold as part of an estate sale locally. Could possibly be a good find if it works well. A few things that I wanted to know:
Any specific issues with these machines that I should know about?
In good player's condition, what opinions are there on worth?
Electronics-wise, is there anything common to look out for?
I'd appreciate any advice and help!

Good luck, post a few pics of the machine here if you get a chance.

Nothing really specific. Just the normal pinball things - completeness, operates properly, playfield wear, etc.

Quoted from MrFancy:

I was really getting into HS and thinking about buying one until I realized that you can just ignore the standups and hit the left ramp over and over since it spots you stoplight targets. I was wondering though, does the game have a setting for the number of spotlight targets that the left ramp spots you? That would be great if you could set it to zero or one IMO so that the standups are still an important part of the game.

Yep, there are settings for if the ramp (or the kickout hole) will award a stoplight lamp.

Quoted from Chisel:

Hoping someone can help me out. I recently got a HS project. Almost done with it and buttoning up loose ends.
I have two red and a brown/violet wires hanging in the back box between power supply and MPU. The reds are different shades.
The reds and brown/purple comes up from cabinet along with a gray/yellow. One red and the gray/yellow goes to the connection board with/resistor near the topper relay in back box. Red then returns out of that connection board and goes down and is zip tied back into the other red and brown/violet wires where they are now just hanging.
Can anyone help me out? I looked on the schematic, I don't see any brown/violet...

Photos of what you are talking about help greatly.

Quoted from jeffr:

Here's one maybe someone else can help me solve. The left hideout likes to randomly fire during the game. I thought it might be the switches in it, but I've cleaned them thoroughly and it still happens. The hideout plays and works fine. But I'd love to figure this out since its annoying and adds extra wear to it.

Overly sensitive transistor? Or Flakey switch?

Quoted from MRudowsky:

Finally picked up the “Hot Action Pinball” topper for my HS. It has the brackets riveted, so that’s a plus. Any pointers on the proper installation? I figured there would have been guide holes, but no. Does it go better centered with the dome, or slightly in front/behind?

Centered is where mine was originally installed and I like it there.

#2406 1 year ago
Quoted from MRudowsky:

Seems like if I center it and it stands straight up, the bracket that holds the red dome on is in the way. If I position it behind the bracket and tilt the topper forward it could work. So, tilt it forward, or remove the bracket?

Here's where mine is. I have got my light working good so I don't worry about the brackets.

Quoted from MRudowsky:

Thanks, that helps. You do have the brackets on there. Looks like the topper might be a little on them.

Your welcome, yep you are correct, the sign is a bit on the hold down brackets.

Quoted from Pin-up:

Not getting the burn out sound when I launch the ball. Every now and then it does, but most of the time not. Cleaned and adjusted the switch, no change. Diode possibly?

Micro switches do go bad. You could test it with a jumper wire.

There are lock tabs on the white pegs retaining the corners of each display. The cables just slide off - no lock tabs.

Get yourself an Optivisor. They use optically ground glass for a clear image and come in 5 strengths. I have 2 (one high power and one low)

Quoted from mkecasey:

Can anybody speak on the quality of these?
ebay.com link » Williams High Speed Pinball Machine Next Gen Translite Backglass

Just based on first impressions - I would save up for a real backglass. There is a non mirrored backglass that CPR offers for $199 or a mirrored one at $249

Quoted from mkecasey:

High Speed is the first game I've owned so this is probably more of a general question and not High Speed specific... But what would cause a mid-game reset? On occasion, mid-game, the flippers will die and scores will reset. Basically brings you back to attract mode waiting for somebody to hit the start button for a new game.

Voltage drop - most likely from old caps or bad connectors in the power supply

Quoted from MikeVarney:

My initial inspection showed everything was ok. However the issue persisted.
Continuing to look into it, I eventually found the issue.
The switch detecting the 3rd ball had its wire set so that when the ball was on it the wire was getting caught on a screw on the switch. So when the ball advanced the switch was being kept engaged. A little creative wire bending with needle nose pliers took care of it!

Great job! Observation is a key skill in troubleshooting.

Bit the bullet and bought a set of these. They're so pricy, but I love them![quoted image][quoted image]

I love those! What caps are you going to use? - here they are (red) in my Pinbot with white opaque caps

I believe the game is supposed to alternate what side it sends it to. The first switch has to be adjusted perfect and really sensitive so it has time to send it to the left side. Mine is pretty close but it occasionally misses. If you are curious...Here's where I streamed it on father's day. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/657295315
