Pic of power box is an Addams. Dont let that throw you off. Same box different layout for indy.

#4602 49 days ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Inside this box are the 2 things almost no one replaces or checks first. All power to boards comes from here. Poor ignored power box on so many restorations ive seen. Start fresh with a new Varistor and Thermistor. both available on most pin parts sites. Marco's etc..
Replace these 2 components, most all are original and worn and old and are failing. This can cause issues for the 12v/optos and displays.[quoted image]

Great, added those my cart from pinball life...

#4603 49 days ago
Quoted from chrisnack:

The new ones look a little different. MOV, metal oxide varistor is covered in black rubber now. Thermistor also new design

#4604 49 days ago

Ordered the MOV, Thermistor, and a BR and Cap just incase.. rather have the parts on-hand once i start working through them.

Thanks for the help, will update once i get the parts and test and/or figure it out

Well crap, i decided i should probably check the AC voltage coming in to J112 as well, turns out there isn't any AC voltage coming in when the issue is happening.

Does anybody know where to get this magnet decal in the U.S.?

I see they sell it across the pond, but cant seem to locate it here in the states

#4608 49 days ago

Measuring AC @J112 with the DMM, one lead needs to be on one green/white and the other lead on the other green/white correct? No ground.

I always forget with AC..

Hey does anybody know when the outlane specials light up/flash and rules around them? I ready something about drop targets gets you a ball save, but didn’t see them light up

My game doesn't even have lamps under special, so your guess is as good as mine..

Outlane special lights up after you get all 5 of the Lost Treasures AND THEN hit the captive ball one more time. You can set the reward for hitting the Special. I have mine set to an extra ball. Other options include points, free game, and ticket. To change this it is under Adjustments, A 1 #15

Awesome, Thanks! It’s not written anywhere I could find

Ya, pretty hard to lite them outlanes up.

#4614 47 days ago

Replacing B5 and C30 fixed my issues.

Another question, is there supposed to be a bumper pad on the back stop for the mode hole? Noticed there are a lot of kick outs.

I don’t think so stock, but that is the solution to stop the kickouts. You’ll want to experiment with the placement, thickness, size as everyone’s hole is different

Gonna make an attempt to screen these grills

According to the manual, the point award for getting the Special is 1 million. 1 million! WTF, thats it?!
So i highly recommend everyone set yours to extra ball. You will not get that lit very often at all, so when you do make it exciting and worth it.

#4620 46 days ago

I'm leaving the club and have two sets of airball protectors. They have never been used and still have the protective film on them. I don't believe you can still get these.

$25 for a set shipped or $45 for both sets shipped anywhere in the U.S.

Please PM me if you're interested

#4625 43 days ago

Joined yesterday.

Didn't get it setup until late, so I haven't properly leveled it.
Question:
1 After the post drops for the ball to go into the POA, it wasn't dropping in but going past the POA and into the left lane. Is that a level and or pitch adjustment issue?
2 Are the Lites Hand of Fate inserts on the inlanes always lit?

[quoted image]

The ball doesn't go into the POA because your game isn't leveled. Raising the rear legs will make the ball fall into the POA. Make sure you are also leveled side to side. There are 3 holes for the rear legs, make sure you are on the bottom 2. Hand of Fate is awarded and not always lit

#4627 43 days ago

Thanks. My phone says I'm a 7.5. It doesn't play like it's that steep.

Another quicky....what is the skill shot?

(i only got to play a couple games last night)

Then raise the left side a tad to help the ball fall into the POA when the post drops. If the right side is higher than the left, the ball will have a hard time dropping into the POA. Some trial and error and you should be OK. I had the same issue. I don't really trust my phone for this stuff. Are you on the bottom 2 holes back there? Raise the machine a bit more and see what happens.

No true skill shot in this game.

7.5 is a little steep.

Sometimes the ball rides the switch wire before the post on the rope bridge and it rolls past the POA.

Carefully and slightly bending the rope bridge down so the ball rides the front wall will keep it on track.

Bending too much will bind up the post. The post can be further adjusted by loosening its solenoid bracket and twisting or moving it around.

A lot of the time the switch wire is bent too high due to a failing switch.

This can actually cause the ball to stop before the post.

Replace the switch in this case and adjust it propetly.

#4630 43 days ago

Check your mounting and linkage on the post stop. I thought that my post wasn’t dropping ... it was in fact never going back up (at least not all the time). I was fooled into thinking it was actually stopping the ball because it was intermittent.

I'm considering buying Indiana Jones Light The Jackpot MOD but would love thoughts from anyone who has installed it. Worth it? Does it interact with any particular mode?

#4632 40 days ago

Question got a IJ Williams noticed the backboard on playfield is like a thick piece clear plastic not wood. Has lost plastic decal on it. Is this something someone made or did any come like that. Looks like laser cut

They sell decals of this but the plastic one is preferred

Chris (HEP) help me figure it out. It's the transparent backboard MOD from pinball decal inc.

#4636 40 days ago

The jackpot mod it self is ok to install. Problem is that you have to get the holes in the speaker panel right. I did it myself. Davy in here made some predrilles ones, looked very professional. The jackpot board itself just light up when you make a jackpot, e.g. arc, grail, etc. Same as the ones on the playfield. I like it as the mod was not that expensive and lights up the speaker section a bit.
At the beginning I was hoping it would be a lock counter, 1, 2, third ball locked . That would be nice on IJ.

Looks cool in attract mode. You don't pay all that much attention to it during game play. My reason was just for completeness to the original concept... Indy is so feature rich it just seemed like it belonged to be there.

It’s an aftermarket mod. Those are really cool, especially if you light them. I have a buddy who has one in his MM and another who has one in his AFM.

Last time I was at Disneyland (late 2018), I went into Adventureland to play the Indiana Jones in the shops. Unfortunately, this beauty had hit the road - does anyone know what became of it? I always thought the revamped cabinet fit into the decor nicely...

#4640 40 days ago

I’m actually going to the effort to build out a completely separate Jackpot board mod without messing with the original. That means new speaker panel with jackpot mod, speaker panel printed plexiglass, ColorDMD, speaker grills, speakers, wires, brackets, screws. Not the cheapest way but guarantees the original will be intact

I recently brought home a IJ.
It played fine for a while. Occasionally it would throw a switch error that would go away on it's own. Last night I'm playing and do a small slap save...left flipper dies a few times and game resets. Then the sound goes out. Sound comes back on then the DMD goes out and stays out. A couple balls are locked in the idol which aren't freed by ball search. It then just starts shooting out balls repeatedly and flippers don't work. It became possessed.

Any ideas? When I brought it home, the lights and dmd were out, but I found that a plug had just come out during transport. Easy fix. I'm not sure what is causing all these issues.

Your ribbon cables could have intermittent issues (try re-seating all of them) ... this is a common problem with the age of these things.
You're 5V could be getting flaky (this can cause erroneous resets during game play)

#4644 38 days ago

Well it’s not perfect, but good enough

Reseated every ribbon cable and plug.
Dumb question...how do I check the 5v on this game?

#4647 38 days ago

Do these go anywhere? Didn't see a spot for them.

I put black on ground and red on lower right prong of the chip but didn't get a reading. Must be doing it wrong.

You don’t need those anymore because you’re running a color dmd.

That was what I figured. Just wanted to double check
