    Hi !
    I'm an absolute beginner - who got my first pinball, Big Guns (Williams), quite recently.

    Well- I am totally hooked on pins now and I'm already looking for the second machine.

    Even though I am an absolute amateur on fixing electronics, I'm about to buy a proper electric tester and soldering station to be prepared when the machines start to show problems. However , of course, I´m the kind of guy who prefers when things function and don´t need repeated repair work. Or at least that those repair works don´t turn out to be too challenging.

    In that respect - and taking into consideration that I'm a newbie : is there anything that should be given special consideration if my next buy were to be a Gottlieb Sys 3 ?

    I've had people warn me from getting a Gottlieb Sys 80- because they are said to be very hard to troubleshoot and work on. Does that apply to the Sys 3 Gottliebs also ?

    So far I've had my sights set on getting one of the following titles: Surf N Safari, Super Marios Bros or Lights, Camera, Action.

    Thanks in advance for Your thoughts.

    Thanks a bundle for the information. I will definitively put those aformentioned Sys3-titles on my hunting list.

    Thanks Amkoepfer ! I must say - I really am reconsidering the Sys-3-games - from having placed them in the "less-of-a-game"-league up until now. I will try to test a few of them before buying, but from what I've seen on Youtube there seem to be quite a few exciting titels in the Sys3-line. One little, and maybe funny, detail that I like is those blue-looking Futaba (?) displays on some of them.

    Haha- thanks, I'll keep that audio-warning for Wipeout in mind
