    Is there anyone that makes home repair visits in southwest Houston? I have 1 electro, 1 solid state, 1 alpha. They all fire up, just need specific issues resolved. Thank you!

    Brian is an awesome dude. Brian can give you some more info but I don't believe he works on EMs.

    What solid state game and what are the issues? I'm not an EM guy though, but I think cadmium can help you with that.

    If you're willing to try your hand at repairs this forum can offer pretty good advice. Or if you prefer to discuss it live here's another option:

    Thanks everybody for the leads, pm’s sent. Also I do some repairs, but when it comes to voltmeter and schematics, I’m out. Just not my forte.

    Whenever things start opening up and the IFPA begins to start again make sure you join us in the Space City Pinball League. Nothing but awesome people and good times.

    Will do as long as I’m living here

    Brolyn. He builds a lot of multicade games and helps out a bunch at the Houston Arcade and Pinball Expo every year.

    A nice update for today for what was done so far. On his BK, I fixed the burnt GI connectors, sound cutting out and some sounds not playing (3 pin and 9 pin connectors) and display board issues it was having with the 7180 IC. Started to do bulletproof the game by replacing all the sound board and power supply capacitors and the board connectors. I still need to add NVRAM replace the CPU and driver board connectors in the very near future. Luckily, Upkick Pinball had a Sorceror in their shop, which I was able to test the display board in to be sure the display issue was where that issue generated from.

    Upkick Pinball is in West Houston, near me, did some amazing work on this EM for the OP. They had got the game running, rebuilt the flippers and cleaned it up.
