Just a heads up for anyone having Dozer issues....

I recently started having issues with the dozer not behaving correctly during multiball, it would stall, especially if I was flipping anything, so it would just randomly stop half-way at times blocking the shot into Ted's mouth, or just acting all kinds of weird, especially if the dozer was trying to move while I was flipping.

I knew I needed a power board rebuild, as I was having random resets and used a Khar board for a while to stabilize the game, but I was noticing things were progressing for the worse. I did the rebuild last night, and can say this also has fixed my dozer problems entirely. So if you are getting frustrated with the dozer, and have tried all the other fixes, might be time to look at a power board rebuild.

Issue just popped up when i got home from work and turned on RS for a game. The game starts fine, and i hit the start button, and it starts up but the ball never comes out and neither of the flippers will fire. I checked around and didnt see anything loose, and did not have find any loose connections, any recommendations on what the issue is?

Patience. Take your time. Take a shitload of pics (use an iPad if you have one) of every inch, from all angles before you pickup a single tool. Work from the top down, taking a shitload more pics as you go, after each major piece is removed. Reassemble in the exact same order, reverse of teardown... The "during" pics should guide you in reassembly if you start from the last pic you took and keep swiping to the right!

If you take your time, pay attention and be methodical, instead of being in a hurry... When difficulties arise, you should find the task to be an enjoyable challenge, rather than a stressful nightmare.

Enjoy!!

Most probably a fuse in the coil section...have you checked them?

Make sure to fully disassemble both heads and exchange all the parts if they look used, worn out etc...they are a pain to service and a shop out is the best time to do the task to have them fully restored and funtional after it.

Quoted from mastercello:

I checked fuses and they look fine as that was the first thing i checked. I was checking all the ribbon cables (machine is resetting when both flippers are pushed during game play) and making sure they were all seated correctly and when i went to test flippers during game play, that is when i discovered the issue.

Frustrating but hopefully i can figure it out and learn how to fix a simple issue like this.

#1509 4 months ago

Fuses can be blown and appear good. You need to check them with a multi-meter for continuity.

Quoted from kechlesurf:

May be a different issue, sounds like classic WPC resets. Try here for info on resets:

Beat me to it, but IMHO for Ted just replace everything. If the parts don't look too bad, use them for red, as she's easy as heck to remove. Most of the mechanical parts for the heads are super cheap anyways. Coils are generally fine, but if they look even slightly suspect on Ted, replace them too.

Include the Centering flange, spring bar and eyelets in your parts list. They are often overlooked/missing and only a few bucks. The centering flange is for the eyes open movement, and the spring bar and eyelets are what get the eyes to return to center when the coils are off.

#1511 3 months ago

Well, went through the machine to see if i could diagnose the flippers not working and and the ball never coming out. I had a blown fuse on the WPC Power Driver board, F107, S-B 5A 250v, and replaced it and it fixed issues. The game would play, flipper reset issue went away. But after 3 or 4 games, game reset during multiball and the start button stopped working .

Any suggestions where i should start looking next?

Does anyone know if you can install a Stern shaker into a Roadshow? I've not had any luck finding a WPC shaker motor, but I have the interface board from a RS. Any info anyone has would be muchly appreciated.

No, totally different. Are you missing the whole shaker assy, or did your motor just fail?

Heads up...

There is a new option for eddy boards in road show. (disclaimer: made by me).

During game play does the ball ever go in Red's mouth?
Haven't seen a video where it goes in red's mouth.

Yes, the ball definitely goes into Red's mouth. Not often, but it does happen.

Anyone who have added the convolux mod?
Pinside thread: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/convoluxcom
Store options: http://www.shop.freddys-pinball-paradise.de/index.php?f=3&q=convolux%206563
It looks REALLY nice on other machines I have seen and want to add to my RS...
Any experience and color advice?
The store has pictures of yellow and green. The obvious blue is not recommended since the "shine" is very limited on that color generally. My initial though is to go for yellow!?
Comments very welcome

#1524 87 days ago

Looks nice and doesn't seem to expensive. I would go with yellow. If you order, post some pics for everyone to see how it looks, I may be interested in adding this mod to my Road Show.

#1525 87 days ago

I did mine with yellow ones and they look pretty good my opinion....

Does anybody have a spare left side cab decal? Only the screen printed one from Phoenix Arcade.

#1528 68 days ago

I put on the Convolux plastics this weekend and was very impressed. The pictures do not do it justice(Im not a great photographer) but i was happy with the look of it. The only complaint i had is i wish there were more plastics. The RoadShow package only came with 5 pieces and only covers a few plastics on the lower playfield. Would be great if they would make plastics for all the playfield as they really make the color pop, especially in a dark room.

They do look good, but I also noticed how it was only a few pieces, so I didn't order it.

#1530 64 days ago

I turned on my RS yesterday and noticed during Flying rocks that I wasn't being awarded extra ball when I hit that shot. I removed the glass and went into tests and the switch is working properly. I played a game with he glass off and both the extra ball and radio switches aren't giving the rewards, even though both the switches are working. The blast reward and Teds head shots are both working fine, any ideas where to start?

#1531 64 days ago

Just to be clear, *after* you get the shot on Flying Rocks, you then have to do *something* - it isn't just awarded. I had to double check the rules (which I will paste below) In the case of EB, you get load it on Flying Rocks then you have to hit the spinner I believe. Did you try that combination?

Flying Rocks

Flying Rocks is akin to the Steps in FunHouse. First light the Left Ramp by getting a Wheel award or enough Blasts (Flying Rocks can NOT be stacked at the Ramp). Hitting the Ramp sends the ball down to the left-hand plunger (using some cleverly-placed diverters). A habitrail leads away from the plunger, and it has three exits. Each exit has an award:

Bottom hole
Lite 5x Blast. The ball is fed to the Middle Left Flipper for a one-time shot at the Blast Targets.
Middle hole
Lite Radio Riot. The ball is fed to the Left Inlane. Each hit to the three-bank of Radio Targets scores 10M for the rest of the ball. Sometimes you'll hear air checks from radio stations: "Turn your knob to BOB. BOB 100 FM", "103.5 - WYNY."
Top hole
Lite EB. The ball is fed to the Inside Right Inlane, which is a pretty good setup for a shot at the Lock.
If you send the ball past the top exit, it will hit Ted in the head! This makes Ted very sore and awards 25M. The ball will roll back to the top hole and exit that way.

#1532 64 days ago

When I shoot extra ball from flying rocks it does not light extra ball at spinner and when I shoot radio it does not activate the radio riot mode. Both switches are working in tests.

#1533 57 days ago

indusguys, when you tested the switches, did you use the ball or your finger?

using your finger, you may be pressing the switch further than the ball can. especially the flying rocks switch.

if they are working with your finger, they most likely need to be adjusted, so the ball can press them in.

put game in switch test, and roll ball past extra ball switch. if you dont hear the beep, try with your finger. if it beeps with your finger, it needs to be adjusted.

similiar for your radio switch. hope this helps...sparky

#1534 53 days ago

I tested with ball in test mode and the switches are working perfectly fine, they are just not awarding the extra ball or radio riot. When the switches are activated (by the ball) there is a sound from the speakers that shows they were hit, but no award? I am guessing it is a board problem? To be honest this game has been a bit of a "lemon" and nearly everything that can go wrong has, but I really love it and have a blast playing. I just wish I could get it playing 100% just once before I die!

#1535 52 days ago

I've noticed that the upper Rocks shots are not always lit. Does it give the full award sound for you, or just a more generic award?

Unlit: "Duh-DUM!" and a points bonus.
Lit: "Duhduh-Duhduh-DUH-DUM!" followed by either radio static or the "Extra Ball Lit" bells.

I'm not actually sure what determines whether an award is active or not, but it's by design. It's why the awards are denoted by light bulbs that can be either on or off.

Edit: Also check your feature menu adjustments, maybe something is disabled or set for hard difficulty.

#1536 50 days ago

Interesting, those shots used to be lit, maybe I did change something in the menu, how do you lit the upper shots anyway?

#1537 43 days ago

Found in the rule sheet:
"Hitting the Center Loop at any time also lights the next unlit Flying Rocks shot. In any event, the shots are always lit in order from bottom to top, and you can collect only one EB from the Rocks per game."

The Center Loop is the shot to the right of the Bulldozer that comes out in the bumpers.

Incidentally, I didn't know this! Now I do.

Ill have to take a picture when I get back to the house. The Opto Interrupter Board for the dozer was Great Lakes Modular and below is a pic from their site of the board.

As for the eddy board, I need the one near the dozer (but could take both just to have a back up). PM me with prices and lets work something out. My machine plays great other than the dozer blade not working and the jaws for both Red and Ted not working.

Having problems with my bulldozer blade. It's not registering at all, so I can't do M-F etc. Was told the eddy sensor might need adjusting. Never adjusted one before, and I know there is more than 1. Can someone post a pic of which sensor it is, it offer any other input as to the problem. Thanks
