Seeing as there is no club and 4500 made.
I figured I'd see who else has one.

Let's see what you got!

I just put way to much time into my laser ball.

I re did all the mpu and driverboard connectors, headers, and 40 pin interconnect. Then on a spare partially populated playfield I had I stripped the top down, removed all mylar, removed and reglued all loose inserts. Cleaned, touched up and waxed playfield.
Put mylar back on around pops and saucer kick out. I rebuilt flippers, rebuilt drops, rebuilt pops. All plastic pieces ultrasonic all metal tumbled.

Then every socket unscrewed and cleaned inside with dremel, all inserts backsides cleaned and full LEDs.

Just got playfield back in today. Gonna fire it up tomorrow.

I tried to start a Laser Ball club awhile back....

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/laser-ball-club-big-girls-need-love-too

But I didn’t get enough members to start a news letter....
Not a lot of love for this pin. It deserves a lot more. Mine plays fast and mean, which makes it a great drinking with your buddies game. And trying to get a extra ball is not easy and very rewarding to get.
Yours looks beautiful! Probably the nicest one on the planet.
Best wishes on your club- count me in as a lifetime member.

That's strange I searched for all laser ball threads and I didnt see that one. Wouldn't have started a new club page if I had seen it.

No problem at all!
I’m happy this pin is getting some love.
Only 85 people on pinside own Laser Ball.
Pretty crazy given 4500 were made.
Probably not to many left.

I have 5 populated playfeilds lol stripped them down and used the best for this game. Just wish mine had the plywood cab not the MDF.
Had a plywood cab version but had to burn it. Too moldy.

hi guys,
i just bought a laser ball. brought it home, and now it doesnt work. it was playing fine at the seller's home. we keep blowing the 2.5A fuse on power up. the lights dont work whatsoever.

the game turns on, but the game is simply growling/vibrating under the PF. i am worried the game will self destruct. the sling shots seem to be semi-firing. they are moving slowly. its so wierd. this is my first OLDer game. my other games are from the 90s and 2000s.

any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks,
HOG

I also have game specific parts and plastics that I would like to get rid of.

Has the 40 pin interconnect been replaced? If not I'd start there

Thanks for the recommendation!

I have heard that from another Tech. perhaps i should bite the bullet and replace it. any other suggestions?

Just brought one back from the dead yesterday. PIA #4 was misfiring coils. It had a nice layer of protective dust on it and looks great with only minor wear.
