Quoted from Jazzbouche:Hey all, I had some friends over last night for pin time, and Indy was playing up a little. It kept going in to test mode randomly after a ball had drained, and also occasionally when just left Unplayed for a while. I haven’t been able to replicate the issue since. I have a pinsound recently installed and am wondering if it’s to do with power supply? Any thoughts? Like I say, I’m struggling to get it to do it again, which is why I wonder if it was due to being on and played longer than usual, and therefore some kind of power supply or spiking issue.
Appreciate any suggestions.



Check out the pinwiki link. May be time to replace caps/br, but I would check for good connections to the powerboard and ribbon cables (if old, replace those first and make sure seated well). Try some simple stuff first. You can also grab a kahr gizmo that will stop the resets, but not solve any underlying issue, I have done that and it works well, but the problem still would need to be resolved. If you have access to another pcb that matches from another game, swap it out and see if you have the resets. Check for cracks in the solder, burnt idc, good connection of idc wires, etc. Depending on skill level, you may want to elect to send board out for repair, but it may take a while. Fyi, my CV board would reset after hitting both flippers at the same time, so you may to try that to reproduce the reset, and the interval between resets tended to get faster the longer the game was on. It’s a great game and if you plan on having it a long time, you may even consider a new rottendog board, and get the original board repaired, so you have a backup in the future. Good luck and be patient to find the culprit.

Quoted from KornFreak28:

Hoping for Zaza to read your post and fix your issue. He is always 100% spot on

Agree. You might want to post in a new thread outside of this IJ thread, you will more likely get a response that will be helpful.

Came across this new 3bank target assembly on Pinball Life for IJ. Wish I saw this about 8 mos. ago when I rebuilt mine that was broken. I used the Bugs Bunny bracket which is exactly the same, and purchased all other parts separately for a similar total cost, but this would have saved a ton of time.

I know right! I spent a few days grinding through making sure all would work with my set up and this pops up lol. Oh well, learned alot about getting parts from other games in the process, but this would’ve saved me a few hours.

Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

There's a bad design on it. The coil mounts to two screws. These screws are tap welded to plate. I had one break off a year ago. Kinda made game unplayable. At the time I talked to Marco and no new plans to make plate soon. I was lucky and a guy at pin a go go had a plate on a table. When you have a broken part , you recognize one instantly.

Exactly where mine broke...coil bracket weld. Mine was a routed game, HUO may not incur the quantity of bank cycles a routed game may go through to cause a break, but might not hurt to have one if it gets alot of play.

Quoted from Pinzap:

I had to zoom in on your photo because I thought you had a tree stump as a topper. Guess my eyes are getting bad.

That’s hilarious right there! Its Groot standing behind IJ.

#4255 5 months ago

I searched for the small gate in front of the mechanism about a year ago, luckily a fellow pinsider sold me one. I have only seen the entire piece being 3D printed, from Germany if I recall, as are the ruins. There for sure is a market for all those pieces, and would be a great opportunity for someone with the right skills to make easy money.

#4257 5 months ago

I stand corrected, Budapest, not Germany. That looks great Davi!

I use a mostly white with a few yellow and orange on flippers and posts.

Lol we do not speak of Crystal Skull...

Hahahaha! When I first watched it, I was disappointed. However, the more I watch it, I’m warming up to it. Can’t wait for 2021 and the next installment

Quoted from PappyBoyington:

I'm guessing this is one of those unused connectors as everything seems to be working fine? Am I right?[quoted image]

Do your backbox flashers work? J106 possibly? Are any keyed?

Quoted from wolfemaaan:

Heads up if you are planning on buying the Marcos planes, the green one is total garbage. The white plane isn’t bad but your better off buying the modded ones. Fan of Marcos generally but this looks like a kindergartener painted it while playing with a kitten.
I put the originals for comparison
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Time to breakout those old Testor paints! I don’t think I had a GI Joe that I didn’t paint up when I was a kid.

Quoted from PappyBoyington:

I bought the jackpot light board from Marco and I was wondering if there are DIY instructions somewhere for cutting out the three jackpots on the speaker panel board?

I used a drill with a fairly large bit and traced the 3 items out onto the board and slow cut out the board, taking a little off at a time using a flashlight lighting up from behind. It came with absolutely no instructions whatsoever which sucks, but it wasn’t too bad.

#4362 4 months ago

Under 2K!? Yeah that’s a buy now for sure

#4364 4 months ago

I used a ruler and a pencil. Measure into the images from top and bottom and side to side. If I were to do it again, I would probably use tracing paper to make it easier. I started with holes smaller than needed and increased them to final size. The chest was the hardest, on my list to finish up lol. I might clean it up with a dremel. I think someone on the thread was selling a precut one done professionally, but seemed a bit too much for me unless I was doing a high end restore.

#4367 4 months ago

Looks great! I’ll send you mine to do lol! Yeah i touched up mine with some black paint to seal it. Great job!

I was completely wrong.
This is my fried bridge plastic board.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

That’s a little bit Chicken Fried! B&T...burnt and toast lol. Sucks though.

Quoted from Beaumistim:

im an entrenched member of the fade club (for now) im also a member of the my indy keeps shooting balls into play, continuously over and over. and the my mini playfield isnt working. any known common issues for these problems?[quoted image]

Quoted from underlord:

Ball trough optos are known to have issues, causing multiple balls to release. I installed new trough boards on mine.[quoted image]

Agree. And make sure the connectors are seated on the boards, or change the connectors. The one on the front most board could have been jostled loose or bumped.
