Doctor Who (Bally: 1992)

Added: March 18th, 2018 Ended: April 3rd, 2018
Condition: Fully shopped/refurbished

Item description

For Sale: A Bally Doctor Who in, what I would describe as, exceptional-condition. This game was sold to me about a year ago as a second-owner HOU machine; however, no documentation was provided. The condition does mostly support the idea, and if it was ever in a commercial environment, it certainly didn't see any abusive use/play. Please see pictures for specific condition details - the game plays 100%, and was recently gone through to ensure it continues this level of service well into the future. The following was completed:

- The Mini-Playfield (MPF) was completely removed and all of these, traditionally problematic systems, were gone through, cleaned, and repaired/adjusted as needed;

- A completely-new MPF gearbox and motor were installed/adjusted;

- The MPF mushroom target opto-system was gone through, and a circuit board repair made to remedy an intermittent issue;

- A light shop-job was performed, the playfield/plastics were cleaned/waxed, and the majority of the rubbers, and all balls, were replaced with new;

- All burnt bulbs were replaced; and

- New black cabinet protectors and leg bolts were installed.

The game is located in Central Pennsylvania - Pickup is highly preferred, but shipping is not out of the question (if the buyer makes all arraignments). I can also deliver to the Allentown, PA show in early May, with a cleared $1000 deposit.

The only trades deals I would be interested in discussing would be for a WW, FT, WOZ, MMR, or AFMR.

HUO - you mean, it was used only in your home while you had it.

#3 1 year ago

With playfield to minipf wear life that?

#4 1 year ago

Please change your add to play at home during
Your ownership And one previous owner

It’s impossible to have so much wear without being used commercially.

Very nice looking dr who with that said
Probably worth it but should change title

#5 1 year ago

4k....?

#6 1 year ago

if it was pristine condition DW, I would pay the asking price. This one, not so much.

#7 1 year ago

A lot of coin slot wear too. This is probably a 3200 - 3400 machine

#8 1 year ago

Doesn't look to bad and the price is fair as the cabinet looks not faded as most of them are.

But those bolts on both sites of the coin are strong evidence it was used in exploitation, they cover up the holes drilled for an additional security bar, mostly used for rough locations.

Also the right slingshot plastic is broken, do I see a spare in the coin box?

Dont know of many HUO machines where the owner thought it a good idea to drill the front for a lock bar

Quoted from Clnilsen:

So, I have a single owner (me) DW. That mini playfield wear is not bad. The time expander will catch the ball while dropping when multiball ends and cause damage like that fast. That is not enough wear to say it was routed. Also, the inlanes where the ball drops from the right ramp is in great condition and that spot is normally beat to crap, this machine has not seen a lot of use (or they’ve been touched up).

All that said, the coin slots also have some wear, so I would say this machine was earning money at some point. Regardless, this is a nice example.

My guess is this machine was on rout and broke down in a way that the operator couldn’t repair (probably the time expander), then it sat for a long time and eventually was sold broken and began its home use life and was fixed. That’s my theory.

Came like that from the factory back then.

I do remember someone selling a FGY as HUO last year when it had a bill validator installed. That had me laughing my butt off.

Wpc 95 pins did but not others... so it was drilled.

Right side cab is faded... especially top half.....

Ah, that’s interesting. I’ll have to look at mine and see if there is a space to attach a lock bar. I thought there was, but perhaps my memory is off.
