Have not been able to find one. Two I tried were terrible. Forced me to keep trying and fix my own games. Good thing but would be nice if Pittsburgh had a person with a skill set like pinball ninja Clay in Michigan. Good luck. Post if you find one.

Quoted from Ericc123:

Yeah, I wish I was more handy and could figure this out myself. I contacted someone on Craigslist that charges $30/hr and he charges for drive time. He said it would be about $100 in just drive time alone and when I said that I would be willing to pay it he still didn't seem interested in coming to help. Pittsburgh definitely needs a good repair tech.

I’ve seen PGH so called techs want to charge $100 per hour and not be able to fix issues . Check past threads. I think I posted a question for PGH tech . Can’t remember if I got a response. Your best option may be to just get advice from Pinsiders . If needed , start a separate thread with exact problem. I’ve made it through a lot of tough spots over the years with help on here.

Quoted from Mtkst19:

Where about are you? If close by I can lend a hand. I'm over greensburg way.

I could also give you a hand Sunday if needed . I’m no tech but can check for power and fuse continuity.

Are you positive wall outlet is working? Does the service outlet inside game have power?

Worst case if you can’t get it going, here are also some numbers. Don’t know if any would help. (There is a reason one name is crossed out. ) Don’t try that one. PM me if you would like some help Sunday.

I would like to apologize to Jan . I got him mixed up with another tech that was charging $100 per hour and could not fix anything. I crossed out his name in error. I am sorry for the mistake.
