Trying to restore my Flip a card need some help.

The main motor just runs when you turn it on and the ball eject in the middle of the playfield just pops. I have 2 wires that has to be connected to get power but if you remove them after power is on the game continues to run. Please help

Is there anyone around Ormond Beach that does repairs? That could help me

Work your way through http://www.pinrepair.com/em/

There's no substitute for learning how to read the schematic to trouble-shoot your issues.

Fun game! I would put an ad on CL for EM repair. Maybe local EM guys will help. Watch what they do and ask questions.

Read pinrepair website on EM’s.

After you read there, you may be able to dial in your tech questions as well.

What makes leds so bad for the game it's kinda like old school meets new school in my opinion. Plus it turns alot cooler I spent alot of money replacing and puting new stuff in this. Does leds really bring down the value that much?

Not for me, and they always can be replaced. I have a couple of games with them.

They are busting your chops. It's all good. LEDs in EM pinball is a polarizing subject.
