Welcome to my new project and the Wife's latest bugbear.

In the grand scheme of things I am new to pinball, my limited experience is documented here...
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/bally-magic-circle-semi-sympathetic-playfield-restoration
...so yet again pandering to my masochistic tendencies (according to my female boss) I have invested in this.

The plan is to get this working again and have it in a coffee table, yeah I know many of you hate coffee table mods but space dictates that this is the route I must take for now.

Additionally I will be adding some extras like optical rollovers to replace the switches, optical sensors on the kickout holes (maybe), the star rollover will be replaced with an IR tripwire and there will be a battery driven attract mode, essentially a secondary set of LEDs mounted under the playfield running of an Arduino. Who wants a power cable running over the floor all the time.

LED displays will also be used as the originals were not supplied, I am considering mounting them at the player end of the table flat under the glass or maybe making a lift mechanism so they pop up at the far end, Arduino again.

Should also be incorporating self levelling horizontal and manual vertical (just to spice things up), as with two small kids the thing is bound to get knocked about.

Power cable will be retractable - Hoover stylee but without the foot pedal.

Shout if you think I am mad,

Moonbus

PS. I started this about a month ago but I am not beyond testing and cleaning stuff. I have got the proper rectifier board and a Squawk as well as a transformer. Feel free to chime in, good or bad as long as its not "I hate MMPM", ill set the kids on you.

PPS. Im going to be documenting the restore of what I have as well as the Mods. I used this forum branch as there will inevitably be more mods than restore.

First things first...

What have I got and how does it all fit together, I love a good puzzle.

I dont really know the background of these bits beyond what the ebay seller told me, "They came out of a machine with a knackered cabinet". I'm cool with that.

My saviour on identification was on the UK forums...
http://www.pinballinfo.com/community/threads/lost-in-the-pac-maze-another-obsessive-restoration.34712/

@nedreud a big thanks for your amazing documentation and photos.

First the wire nest, if im going to be able to identify anything I need to be able to see the colours first so into the dishwasher it went, after the missus went to bed.

Dishwasher1 (resized).jpg

I then dried it as in the pic in post 1 and laid it over the playfield.

harness1 (resized).jpg

Most of the lamp sockets were still mounted on the underside of the playfield secured by the staples braiding so I could match up wires as required and solder join. For some reason, probably a contaminant, the solder took lovely to the clean harness but was 'reluctant' on the playfield side.

Process is simply, tin each side. Slip on heat-shrink, solder together, heat the shrink.

Im going to be adding a PTEG sheet over the playfield as I don't have the means 'yet' to be able to clearcoat.

I bodged up a method to do this on my other machine but in order to do this I need to have the playfield stripped both sides.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/bally-magic-circle-semi-sympathetic-playfield-restoration#post-3444293

At least now I had the harness connected to all the lamp holders so when it is removed the holders and the braid should help with setting it back down. I used a sharpie to mark the route of the braid then off the lot came came..

Stripped playfield1 (resized).jpg

Only thing left to take off was the star rollover. I did a lot of googling on this and was surprised that the general consensus was fight with it a bit then break it and buy a new one. I will not be beaten...

Heatshrink to the rescue.

Step 1. Slip a bit of heatshrink over the arrow head retainer.
star2 (resized).jpg

Step 2. Tuck the heatshrink into the plastic tangs. Tuck under one and rotate with gentle downward pressure and the heatshrink will soon feed in. Note that at no point is any pressure applied to the 'brittle' red tangs.
star3 (resized).jpg

Step 3. Gently push the heatshrink encapsulated arrow head and wiggle clockwise (or anti if the desire takes you)
Step 4. Hey presto...
star1 (resized).jpg
star4 (resized).jpg

After doing all this I found this post...
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/replacing-star-double-star-rollover-inserts-moving-part#post-3186928
Its amazing how the internet works. Thanks internet. Oh for a straw.

After photo documenting the braid lines I then sanded the rear playfield to remove any flaking, solder splatter or other imperfections. This is in prep for both the protector and any hole filling or new stuff that needs to be done like drilling holes for T-studs.

The MPU board has some battery damage and I assume by the 'flow' work around the ground line that the board has been worked on before.

Having not worked on anything like this prior to this outing I guess the battery is an after market addition as well. It looks like the original battery messed up the board, someone fixed it and added another leaky battery. The plan is to get this working and then add a capacitor backup, for me it is probably the most economical solution.

Nice playfield! I have one of these and my playfield looks like a pig.

#10 60 days ago

My understanding of battery damage is limited to lost tv remotes and forgotten kids toys. Thankfully there are loads of tales on here regarding this so I set myself too and attacked the board.

I removed the following...
IC sockets U6, U7, U8 and U11.
IC U2 (555)
Transistors Q1, Q2, Q5
The LED
R3
R1
CR7
VR1
CR5
C5
C13

Cleaning of boards seems to bring out a lot of opinions but as I had resigned myself to a total rebuild if necessary I had nothing to lose so I picked the aggressive route.

All the socketed IC's left in the board were removed and I then did a local application of toilet cleaner to neutralise the battery damage.
Board was then washed off with water and soaked in a vinegar solution as I was not happy with the discolouration on the rest of the board solder work.

After a little while the board was put through a low temp full sandblast clean in the dishwasher and then another rinse cycle.

Unfortunately I neglected to take pictures of the result but it was warm and sparkly.

Quoted from ecto1a2003:

That was the main reason I invested. Additionally, either the seller or the previous owner had already removed the mylar so that stress was also taken away, all I have to do is get rid of the glue.

I am split between 'trying' to restore the playfield or just touch up and cover.

#12 60 days ago

I got a reasonably priced 'as is' Squawk and Talk Board from Alpha1 on the uk forums pinballinfo. Thank you.

First inspection revealed a broken cap and a missing crystal. When I purchased the game bits I knew I would need this board so I pre-purchased some bits and salvaged the cap from another project.

S&TCap (resized).jpg
S&TCrystal (resized).jpg

I replaced the broken cap and the crystal, attached a speaker and fired her up using an ATX power supply, turns out she was from an Eight Ball Deluxe.

After adding the MMPM ROM's and changing the jumpers the board would not work, the LED locked on the 5th flash.
Turns out jumpers Q, U and Y had zero ohm resistors in them and I confused them for part of the circuit. Once I realised that, fixed it and got it working, never has such low bit sound been so sweet to the ears.

Crystal, broken cap, and all other recommended caps replaced. New ROMSs installed. and jumpers fixed.

#13 60 days ago

Whilst I was messing about with the S&T board I got all the bits I needed for the MPU and set about rebuilding it.
The removed IC sockets were replaced with SIP strips, Other components were replaced with like for like where possible and the jumpers were set for 2732 ROMS.

E4 - E13a
E12 - GND
E7 - E8
E10 - E11
E31 - E32
E16a - E29
E33 - E35

'BallyWilliams Suck' on the uk forums helped me out with some new chips for U10, U11 and U7 as well as a test ROM for U6. MinistryOfPinball sent me a 6800 and new game ROMS and ebay sent me a new U8.

After a lot of tweaking, head scratching and logic probing she came to life. The wife was not happy with the probing.

The E12 to GND link

Now I know the MPU is working I will clean her up some more and give her a lacquer to stop any more issues as well as add the capacitor backup.

All boards mounted in order for security along with the correct rectifier (needs touchups) and the 6803 transformer.

This evenings antics...

Displays.
The original displays were not included in the bits I bought so I got some LED replacements in kit form from Pinball Solutions. You get two board per display and a load of loose components along with instructions outlining what goes where.

I sorted the components for each board and attacked it like a production line. Its laborious but if you don't mind repetitive jobs it is not so bad.

Displays1 (resized).jpg

I decided not to put the headers and connectors on yet as I am not sure how I am going to mount the displays. I may even decide to use a smaller size segment display that I will have to make myself. If I do I will need to put the driver sections under the playfield and run ribbon cables up to the displays. I also have to make this wire loom as it was also absent.

Displays2 (resized).jpg
Displays3 (resized).jpg

Need to clean them up a bit and lacquer but the worst is over, unless I have put something in the wrong place which would be a pain in the ass as they are all matching.

Pop Bumpers...
Never worked on these all in ones before and they were in a few bits when they arrived. Vid's rebuild thread has been a help.

Pop3 (resized).jpg

Got new bodies, skirts, yokes, rings and switches. The switches are for another brand of bumper but It seems to have all the bits I need and along with the broken ones included with the original parts I should be able to get something that works.

All the other bits were put in a small ultrasonic cleaner with toilet cleaner, rinsed with water, buffed with Brasso and waxed to seal.

When you install these you may need to remove the wires running through pin 11 in the wire harness. I believe the diagram calls for them to be not connected but they were on my machine and i had issues with aftermarket displays because of this.

Yeah 11 is not used.

Just making a table up to help with this job. Will be dropping the high voltage lines.

Plan is that one voltage regulator should be able to run run all the IR mods powered by the GI line. LED's will be used throughout meaning the overall load should still be less than original.

#21 57 days ago

The construction of the circuit is very simple as most of the work is done by the modules and it is just a case of getting them talking to each other.

I had the idea of doing this and some googling turned up this from the model train website ogaugerr.com

I put them both to work on an a Frankenstein harness I got from ebay, was cheeper than buying separate wires and gives me the colour combinations.
They were looking for the 17 wires needed for the display harness.

#23 57 days ago

Well they found all the cables or ones close enough.

We made a new harness using the molex plug from the door as I could not find any 24pin types. I need to make a IDC punch down tool, as i refuse to pay the silly price for a bit of moulded plastic. For this test we used a fork to push the cables in.

A 6 digit display is mounted under the playfield so I finished that one off to enable light up, it also means I can use it as the credit display whilst I trouble shoot anything else that pops up.

The harness is about 5 foot long to allow for front or rear placement.

Two shots of the display running the test sequence, all sections and segments work.

#24 57 days ago

So far...

Repaired playfield harness and reattached to captive lamp sockets.
Stripped playfield front and back.
Added power.
Fixed and capped S&T.
Fixed MPU.
Patched up backbox harness.
Re capped Solenoid driver board.
Mounted, wired, and tested all boards.
Made all displays.
Made new display harness and tested.

I think the next logical step is to clean up the playfield.

#25 56 days ago

When I boot the boards up I noticed I get the seven flashed on the MPU LED then the LED comes on for an eighth time and stays on with a brightness of about half that of the boot flashes.

Is this normal or is it an indication that something is 'leaking' to the LED ?

Playfield:

Old mylar glue stripped off. Used car painters 'panel wipe' and a cotton cloth. Very therapeutic.

Before...(when i picked it up)

After...
PFWhole1 (resized).jpg

Structurally it seems to be in good condition, the paint is stuck on. The original 'clear' seems to be intact and there is minimal damage from when the mylar was remove (good job whoever did that).

The kicker holes and outlane are almost damage free. Only negative is a water stain on the bottom left but the wood seems sound, no delimitation of peeling.

Photo bombardment of areas that may need fixing if I decide to go down that route. Some areas where the top layer of wood was breached I have primed with some createx white to stop any contaminants getting in. Reviewing these pics I seem to have missed one or two spots that need sealing.

I am going to scan the whole playfield so one thing I am considering is making a full size gloss poser print and sealing it between the playfield and the poly overlay I will be making.

This way I dont balls up a playfield that someone could probably do a better job on restoring in the future and for $30 I have something new looking.

Yeah, most of the damage seems to be from insecure posts the the guides cutting the playfield. I guess once they have initial movement it just get worse.

Other issues are just age. Very little I can attribute to the milar removal.

I have scanned the playfield as its always seems like a good idea to have a backup.

Indeed, the process has started.

Quoted from Hop-Pac:

It is almost taking the picture and turning back in time to how it was screened on.

I am using Photoshop elements, splitting the image up into the separate colours gives you more freedom when working on one colour without the worry of messing with another.

This is after a quick run around the image with the paint tool. I am sure there is a way to 'mask' and do fancy stuff but I like to go round and treat it as I would if I could do it with a real paint brush.

I found the official Pacman colours online and corrected each colour, then I just went around and deleted or filled any major blemishes.

Progress so far...

Wow, 16 days since an update...
So I started cleaning and it just went on and on and on and on and on.
I will admit that I have read some restore threads on here and wondered why most people who do this a lot just send stuff of to be re-chromed, plated or coated but now I fully understand why.

The quality of chrome/plating on this generation of machine is pitiful (pun intended) compared to the 60's machine I worked on prior.

All the bits have been through the following process...
ultrasonic cleaner
spot treated for rust
ultrasonic cleaner
Coke and aluminium foil rub down
ultrasonic cleaner
Brasso buff
Wipe clean
Wax to seal
Polish up

I realised that given the state of most of the bits that 'Chrome Porn' was out of the question. The units were structurally sound but cosmetically lacking and rust infected, once started the process must be finished.

Been experimenting with an old drop target that was included in the box of bits. Cant take credit for this as I found it whilst on a google adventure...
https://forums.arcade-museum.com/showthread.php?t=303680

I liked the idea so have started trying to find something that works for me.

Take one old drop target,

Clean,

Sand off the old image remnants, this one was embedded into the target and I was probably a little over zealous with the sanding but it was otherwise rubbish that was providing a service.

I used permanent 65 sheet clear labels ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/TRANSPARENT-Label-POLYESTER-Self-Adhesive-Printable/dp/B009ZTANMC/ref=sr_1_1?s=officeproduct&ie=UTF8&qid=1495486140&sr=1-1&keywords=65+sheet+laser+clear+labels ).
Dropstickers (resized).jpg
Drop4 (resized).jpg
The end plan is to probably have one label with the image on and then to cover it with another clear label to seal the ink in and offer better protection.

As can be seen the label is a good fit width wise without any trimming. The bottom will need to be trimmed to cover the latch bump in a way that there is not an edge to be caught during the up/down operation.

Question regarding the 'Spinners'

Are they 360 degree spinners or do they just wobble 180 degrees back and forth ?
What is their function in the game, like what happens score and lamp when the pall hits them ?
If the spinners do only wobble back and forth, ie they are not able to rotate fully, what would be the effect if they could rotate fully ?

I did not get any of the assemblies with the game so will have to make my own and these pictures from @nedreud seem to indicate that the spinners do not rotate fully as there does not appear to be enough space between the mounting screw and the spinner 'offset' leg.
Right Spinner (resized).jpg
Left Spinner (resized).jpg

#49 22 days ago

They are not spinners (I wish they were - I Love Spinners). They just wobble back and forth. Each time in wobbles it scores 500 points. Does not light any lights or arrows.

Also, with the right one. At the start of the ball is the Skill Shot ( arrow blinks). If you miss the Skill Shot, the Star rollover or the Right "Spinner" gate tells the game that the Skill Shot was missed and turns off the blinking arrow.

Hope that helps.

I'm happy that this game is getting this kind of love. Most people just bash it. I think it's a lot of fun. Good luck with your restore. If you need any help, I will gladly do whatever I can
