My old best buddy who lives in Honolulu has a Pinbot in house that has not been working for at least 5 years. He said he went to a couple of arcades to ask around but has been unable to find anyone in Hawaii who does pinball repair. It is time to give his machine some TLC. If anyone can point me/him to someone who does pinball repair in Hawaii, please let me know (or point me to a listing on Pinside). Or, if someone with repair skills happens to have a trip to Hawaii coming up, I can put them in touch with my friend, Bruce about maybe taking a look at it. Mahalo.

At least have him pull the batteries off of the CPU if they are in there - you don't want corrosion issues to sidetrack from the initial problem.

Maybe look up pinsiders on the Pinmap. Contact and see if they have recommendation ? Also if game sale place would be good place to inquire.

Good luck Shane

Dang, you're a few weeks late. I was there for ten days recently.

CFH has gone to Hawaii in the past to do service calls. Maybe he'd be interested in a road trip.

Oddly enough, someone else in Hawaii is also looking for a tech.

Maybe someone can help a few folks while they're out there!

Mahalo, everyone. I will tell Bruce to remove the batteries right away. Appreciate the other ideas. Dr. B. needs to check out Pinside and get in the community, including contacting other Pinsiders in Hawaii (will pass Thestrangebrewer contact info on to him, thanks frunch for the link).
Time to put some effort into his Pinbot and start playing again.

Aloha,

I could still use help with Addams Family and Indiana Jones Pinball Adventure, if you're traveling to Kauai and can diagnose machines, please let me know. I'd appreciate the help or input.
... Or, if you're coming to Kauai and aren't good with fixing machines, stop by Kauai Island Brewing Co and play the games we have that are working.

Thank you
