    Looking for GOTG pro, Stranger Things prem. Or Le shoot me a message if your considering selling thanks.

    #6852 38 days ago

    Looking for something new. Anyone selling a Deadpool LE (other than the 15k NIB one)?

    Could also add another 90's game- how about a really nice Junk Yard or Theatre of Magic?

    Also still looking for a Twilight zone with an unfaded cabinet and original playfield. Have seen a few in this condition sell locally recently so I know they're out there, but I missed out on them.

    Thanks!

    Edit: FT sale pending, SoF sale pending.
    I'm going to be posting a players condition Fish Tales $4000 and a Swords of Fury $3500 for sale soon. I wanted to give you all first crack at them. I'll give 10% off to the local crowd. Both 100% working and ful LED's in both. The FT has playfield wear at the inlanes where the ball drops from the ramps and slight fading on the cabinet. SoF has a small playfield scratch in one location but otherwise in great condition and all original black ramps and plastics. There are four added spotlights and a trough light that brighten the playfield nicely. Let me know if there is any interest. I can send photos and video. Cheers!

    All, I am selling off a bunch of my parts. You can find listings on CL. There are lots of boards, flipper parts, coils, pop bumper parts and some game specific parts.

    I wish I wasn't so busy with work this time of year while simultaneously trying not to hoard parts. I see so much I want. Or is it need. No... Want.

    Bring what doesn't sell to the swap meet.

    Whatever doesn't sell will likely go to the Museum in Alameda. We are a ways from that. I have only scratched the surface of parts that I have.

    Asking for a friend...

    Is there a recommended Video Arcade assembly business in the Sacramento area? The friend wants a Cocktail Table with both joysticks and mini-trackballs. Games wanted to contain Horizontal and Vertical sets. He wants it premade instead of him making from a kit.

    I see companies advertised all the time on CL, but any hints are appreciated for a good one.

    Thank you!

    There used to be an outfit in Folsom, Dream Arcades... looks like they are in Rancho now. Like with any outfit that sells mames and multi cades I’m sure they’re only quasi legit but they have been around for a long time so I’m also pretty sure they’re not fly by night. Not cheap either, lol.

    And as for the price, not my money, so have no problem mentioning them!

    Yep, I've known Devin for years. He's a great guy and helps a bunch of us in the south bay area with our pins...

    He's repaired something on most of my games at this point. I handle most basic repairs but he's got a knack for mechanical fixes and electronics debug. A few weeks ago he shopped and repaired my RFM. He applied 3 sets of inner-cabinet decals for me this past weekend.

    He's done full, down-to-the bolts restorations of my White Water and Firepower. Both required playfield swaps and substantial cabinet work. He's also swapped playfields on my EBD and Flash Gordon. His attention to detail and painting skills are top notch. He's my pinball whisperer.

    Devin is awesome. He did a ground up restoration of both my Cftbl and my Fg(bally). Both with playfield swaps and cabinet restores. Creech got the original playfield restored and cleared by Kruzman with cab restore and decals by Devin. Flash Gordon got a new cpr playfield and the cab got restored and painted by Devin. Both machines are the nicest you will likely ever see. Stop by my place by appointment if you ever want to check them out. Some of you on here already have. He has also installed some troublesome mods for me including the walking Stay Puft for Ghostbusters and tail light mod on creech.

    Hey fellow Norcal pinheads. I thought I would drop a tip for anybody looking for a really good Pinball mechanic in the San Francisco Bay area. Sugartown Pinball has been wonderful to me and my pins. Colin has done a full restore on my no fear and been out to do many repair or maintenance work on my sterns, Williams and gottlieb pins. He does really good work, gives great advice, and has reasonable prices. Could not recommend a better guy. Sugartown pinball +1 (925) 788-8577.

    Take a look at the schematic again. I just saw a reference to on the drawing which says: "+48VDC (70VDC NO LOAD)" which may be why you are seeing that voltage. The board may be working fine...

    #6894 8 days ago

    Thank you for your help. I did not see that on the versions of the schematic I have. I gather that the RMS is 76 so that is what the meter may be reading. I am troubleshooting an issue where the game shuts down and restarts randomly. I replaced the caps in the 20v and 5v so far. They needed to be done even though they measured ok. The lights are far brighter. The shutdown issue is still present. I have the 48v cap on order as my next step. The bridge rectifiers measure ok. I replaced the one on the 20v and have another on order for the 48v just in case.

    Could be an intermittent short somewhere in the game in the 5V line? If you short 5v very briefly, the fuses would likely NOT open, and the game would likely restart. Just a guess...

    I could be wrong but I’d be willing to bet Haggis won’t be doing the titles requiring licensing beyond planetary . FG with original queen sound track and actor callouts would be bomb !
