Yup, condom came right off. I suspect that bulb has been dead for a long time.

Thank you. If you need something let me know.

The stage values little one. It has always been broken with missing piece.
And the long one under morph ramp before trunk lock.
In middle of shop job. So ignore that ugly white rubber.
Getting titan dark blue for PM.

Question for owners. Does the kicker inside the stage area work on your games? There is a kicker there just below the pop bumper. I have tried adjusting the switches so many times, but can't seem to get it to work. It does work in test, so I know the coil / assembly works.

I know it is likely an adjustment thing, but I think if this worked reliable it would add so much action to that area.

Any thoughts?

Quoted from SilverUnicorn:

Yes, mine does. Seen it work during game play. Doesn't have tons of umph, but, gets the ball going a few times up there.
I have no idea why yours wouldn't?
Let me take a closer look, glass been off few days now.

Well, it sounds like you only did a coil test. Did you do a switch test to see if it registers there?

Yes, mine works fine in switch test and in gameplay. Pretty much acts like a 2nd pop bumper.

My PM was blowing the breaker switch every second time I turn her on (!). Today I got a nice fresh batch of NTC's (thermistors), I cut a black wire going from the fuse to the transformer and put the NTC in between, but it did not solve my problem. Should I put it somewhere else, like *before* the main switch, or is anywhere between the line and the transformer good enough?

Unplug the connectors on backside of the transformer. Does it still blow a fuse?

#1670 36 days ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Yes, after the third time the breaker tripped.

I tried moving the NTC directly in between the switch and the transformer, to no avail. One thing I do notice, is that the NTC gets f*cking hot. Not even 10 seconds after turning on the power, it is already too hot to touch and starts to smell. I tried a second NTC, with the same result. Same type of NTC in my The Machine: Bride of Pinbot does not overheat like this.

It can't be a short in the power supply, else the fuse in the metal box would have blown too, right?

This photo shows how the NTC is mounted in the PM (the single screw terminal in the black wire shows where the NTC was during the first attempt):

You need to move the thermistor back to where it belongs as per the manual.

Need to see a picture of the input into the transformer. I'm trying to find in the manual how the transformer is supposed to be jumpered for 220V. You still have the backside of the transformer disconnected? If so, you can't have a power supply issue at this time if the output (backside) of the transformer is disconnected.

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

I am pretty sure there isnt supposed to be one? There is an orange thing parallel to the power socket in the metal cage (visible on the top photo), but that is not a thermistor I think.

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

It is correctly wired. The game also plays normally when it doesn't trip the breakers.

The backside of the transformer is still disconnected. The only thing drawing power after the switch, is a transformer without load and a 220v lead to my PIN2DMD (the red piggyback connectors).

Well something sounds fishy to be tripping a breaker randomly. How many games are on this same breaker? I would move the game to another outlet on a different breaker to be sure it is that game and not the breaker itself.

There are six games (and a few outlets in the kitchen) but when I run the tests, it's always the one game that is being turned on (with the rest off).

The fact that bugs me most, is that the NTC gets burning hut within seconds (you can smell it), whereas the same NTC does not get hot at all in the BOP. This leads me to believe something is wrong in the machine, not the breaker.

How about some history on the game.
How long has the game been working before you had this issue?
What mods did you add into the game? Is this when it started?

I sure would like to see the input of the transformer to see how it is wired for 220V for future reference.

I do not remember that white with black stripe wire being original in the game so that makes me think something added in the game and wired wrong causing the issue.

I generally try to avoid cross-posting but we are a pretty small club and I have had a lot of PMs about this subject so if you have or are interested in Pin Stadiums (please forgive me purists) for PM (or other Capcom games) this may interest you: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/new-pin-stadium-lights-official-announcement/page/110#post-5238924

#1677 16 days ago

Joining your club if that's ok? Swapped out my 2010 Spiderman for a nice condition (by all accounts) Pinball Magic. It should be here in the next week or two.
