Quoted from ShineSpark:
I have a LOTR LE whose left flipper (factory original) just went dead during a multiball. Just prior it was making a lot of noise while engaged.
Having looked around online it appears that a transistor could be the culprit however I am newish to the repair aspect of the hobby and am finding myself out of my depth with this one. I've done an LED outfit and installed an OCD board, I've swapped out the palantir for a mod, these sorts of things I'm OK with but anything involving soldering or a flipper rebuild I confess I'm not there yet.
I've reached out to a couple of the repair people closeby and they're either backed up or not answering emails. Anyone have any suggestions as to who I could ask?
Thank you very much, everyone, it's a shame to have this beauty just sitting here.
Are you sure its not a mechanical issue? versus electronics
