So back in May I purchased a machine from a pinsider (It's actually the machine that temporarily took me out of pinball!). It played nice at his house. It played nice at my house for about 3 hours. I started to get Check fuse 106 and 101 errors and the machine started messing up. I did a little troubleshooting and asking for help on here. Seller was nice at first but claims nothing was done other than fixing a few switches (game is CP....switches were under the boxer). I have an e-mail confirming this as well.
Problem was something was being shorted somewhere. I decided I didn't have time for it and wanted to just sell it (along with my other machines). The buyer of all the machines wanted me to fix the machine and then he would buy it. I agreed. I decided to send it to a well known pinball repair tech in the area (turns out the seller has used him before as well).
Well after about 2 months of troubleshooting and 2 CPUs, a rebuilt power driver and countless parts, the problem winds up being under the boxer. The tech cannot believe the "repairs" that were done (I'll have a picture of it soon). Turns out the repair tech knows of the seller and has directed me not to buy ANYTHING from him. The seller keeps insisting that "you had plenty of time to play the game and check anything out...I am not responsible".....Well, I can't exactly tear apart the whole boxer assembly. Like I said, it worked fine there and it worked fine for a while at my house. Is he responsible if he "fixed" under the boxer?....is he responsible even if he didn't...he obviously knew about the mess under the boxer.
Now, I'm in around 800 bucks and its not fixed and the buyer backed out. The CPU is off to rottendog to see if it can be repaired. I'm sorry if I'm jumping around or something isn't clear...I have more details, just don't want to write a novel.
Do I just cut my losses and fix the machine or what??
