Quoted from Scoot:

I did have a difficult time matching the blue paint so thank you for suggesting this color. There is really little difference from a spray can to an airbrush. Of course an airbrush gives you far greater control but a spray can can do the same job. You will just have to be careful with overspray so mask everything you don't want paint. Also, airbrushing with acrylic paints means I can paint indoors without stinking up the place. If you use a spray can, it will smell up the whole house if done indoors (I know, I've done it) so take it to the garage or outdoors.
The xacto knife should only cut the frisket, so be careful not to cut too deep. Here are some other examples that I have done.
Frisket is cut and remove what to paint.

Is there a kit available for a power supply rebuild?
I’m still having a noticeable power drop to my upper flippers during multiball. The flippers get less powerful and have a slight lag time between button press and reaction. Only during multiball, it seems.

I was able to find a fish decal from England, with the below black area, but I can’t find any green decal to cover my wear. Does anyone have some leftover green decal from a full USA that I could use to cover my wear? Or any other suggestions?

Having some problems with my Road Show, hoping to get pointed in the right direction as to further troubleshooting.
Current Status:
At power on, running the test report gives a message to check switch 35 (Red Stand Up Upper Target), Ground Short Row 2, and Ground short Row 5.
When I go into the switch edge test, Row 2 and 5 show as completely closed. The only switches that respond when in the test are in column 1. When any switch in column one is closed, the test reports the entire row that switch is on as shorted.
If I remove the switch matrix connectors from 207 and 209, the ground faults are no longer reported.
Any Ideas on what I should look at/for next?

I don't think I did, but I cant rule it out. Its been months since I've had it on, and wasn't working on it prior to that hiatus.
Would that IC be ULN 2803A? If so, I had a few on hand, and replaced it (thank you socketed chips!). and get the same results.

Yes. And usually they are on a socket to easy replacement.

Quoted from MyParagon1979:

I feel like my eddy board is toast.
After lots of manipulation I was finally able to get it to register correctly. I placed a drop of super glue onto the base of the screw. Was this a mistake? Figuring a new board will take awhile to receive from Australia?!

I bought a Smart Eddy from the people here in Australia, be it about half a continent away. My mistake was I only bought one thinking the other two were ok. Well, just bought another one that arrived today just put it in and works like the first from them. Tried glueing the pot as well b4 buying. Didn’t work for me. They both just kept moving. The two I replaced are under the blade, front and back. I guess that’s where there is the most force bouncing about.
These boards just work, replace and forget. It’s an old machine and nice to know that small component is done with and bullet proof.
No more messing with those stupid old pots.

My mistake was only buying one. It’s been 10 days and it’s still at the airport awaiting international departure…..

Anyone help me with a switch issues I am having? I believe I just need to adjust the arm on the "Lock Kickout" but I just cannot get it adjusted right.

Shooting in to Bobs Bunker the ball does not come back out. With glass off I can lift the PF a little and it will kick it out. Also with ball in during switch test I can see the same as the below.

Any thoughts?

Hi. Look you have to bend the switch lever (adjust it ) when the ball sit there the switch lever or actuator is no clicking the switch. So when you lift the PF it does read. I use a needle nose pliers.

#3062 3 months ago

Yeah been trying too hard to get it bent the right way…

I just joined the club yesterday! I have fond memories of playing Roadshow at a diner near me back in the early 2000s, but I never anticipated owning one. However, a friend reached out to me this week to tell me her husband had a pinball machine cluttering his garage and he wanted to get rid of it. It was filthy and had stopped working. Apparently it started life at a biker bar, then wound up in a warehouse where it languished for at least a decade. Her husband's father bought the warehouse and gave him the machine. He played it until it died, then eventually decided to unload it. He had nothing in it and just wanted it gone; I hesitate to say what I paid for it, but suffice it to say I got a hell of a deal. It's going to take a lot of manhours to get it working again, but it's cleaning up very nice so far, as you can see in these early before and after pics. I'm sure I'll be hitting up this thread for advice.5FE05413-D518-4BCA-937C-FE255E2D09BA (resized).jpeg5FE05413-D518-4BCA-937C-FE255E2D09BA (resized).jpeg

What is the correct size of the rubber on the post below the mini flipper and the post under the flying rocks plastic? The discussion from a few years ago didn't give a specific answer.

#3069 3 months ago
Quoted from Scoot:

I was worried about my future RS after reading this thread. Once it arrived I was relieved. My apron has minor bubbling but no visible rust or ruptured bubbles. Nothing I need to worry about for now. Maybe if those bubbles ever get worse or break open. Fortunately the apron decals are available.

This thing is cleaning up nicely! I'm waiting on a new battery holder from Marco (the batteries had corroded horribly, but thankfully they were on a stand-off board). However, I tried starting a game tonight, and to my amazement, it actually sort of works! The shooter lane kickout and Bob's Bunker kickout aren't 100% and I'm sure there's a bunch of other stuff I'll find, but this may not be as rough of a job as I initially thought.

I’m going to need some guidance from a patient pinsider. I’m having some very bizarre electrical issues and I have no idea where to start……
1) will be a four player game, then midway it turns into a one player game
2) middle of ball 2 or ball 3 it will turn into ball 1
3) the replay is set at factory setting of 500,000,000 , yet it displays at 570,000,000.
I’m at a total loss and will appreciate any help.

#3074 3 months ago

I just read the owners manual in detail. My cpu LED indicators are all correct. I tried my best to run through all the tests. The one thing that’s totally perplexing is my replay is absolutely set at 500,000,000
But the dmd display reads at 570,000,000 during the game‍♂️‍♂️

I own 3 Roadshows and 2 of them were rusty (missng one thrd of pant) and one is in normal shape (originally).

OCD kicked in, your pop bumper caps are in the wrong position, they all need to move 1 spot clockwise. They match up with the skirt colors. I thought mine was gonna be bad to get going. Worst part is getting to Ted because every ramp has to come off to do it easily.

As per pinwiki, I reseated some connectors, pushed on some RAM on the cpu, and reset the machine. It’s now working well. I’ve read about the kahr daughter board. Is that money well spent?

It was for me to stop the resets I was having. I eventually got around to replacing the caps on my power supply board which fixed the root of the problem.

Finally back into its cabinet. Threw the balls in and everything works! It's been apart far too long.

Here is my question. If the kahr daughterboard helps redirect power, if I don’t care about the cost of the kahr, does it make sense to buy a kahr in attempt to avoid the caps going bad on the power supply board. Everyone seems to support the kahr as a bandaid, but what about using it for prevention?

#3082 89 days ago

Hello,

I have a weird issue. Sometimes during the game, the sound completely cuts off. When the ball drains the sound comes back again.
Did someone have the same issue?

#3084 89 days ago

Hi - I bought a new switch and installed with the same issue and bent it up.

Do you (or anyone) out there know the sequence of events that happen when you get a ball in to Bob's Bunker?

3 Switches Lock 1, Lock 2 (which are on top of eachother) and then kickout.

There is a plastic diverter the ball sits on near Lock switch that must open up to drop to the kickout.

Without a ball locked - what would the above switches do when the ball goes in the hole? Looks like my ball isnt making it to the kickout switch at all.

Thanks!

I had to grind down the one on the small post on a recent ring kit order, in order to keep the ball from getting stuck in the inlane.

hi. Let me see if I have time today later to look into it and let you know.

#3087 88 days ago

Thank you - I think I figured it out. I had 2 switches that were not working correctly - I believe that lockup 1 switch activates and allows the ball to drop through the plastic shaft. Then the kickout switch kicks it out. I had to replace my kickout switch and adjust the bottom switch closest to the plastic shaft which I Beleive is lockout 1.

What was throwing me off was having multiple switch issues instead of 1 and not knowing what activated that shaft when the ball goes in the bunker.

I"m having the stuck ball below the mini flipper problem also. Temporary fix has been a having a rubber band around the posts and rubbers.

I replaced the rubbers with what sizes was already on the game. At least my brain worked out what should be there using the rubber band.

Ha must be a common mistake. I had a Roadshow that was separate from the one pictured and it was put out for public play, after a couple of hours someone informed me of a stuck ball and I saw it sitting in that same spot with the same incorrect rubber placement. Really import to visualize ball paths when placing rubber to verify what was there before was correct or not. In this case, as you found out, the 4 smaller rings essentially created a hole for a ball to wedge into in a spot that should have been a bouncy guide! Glad that’s what it was though as it’s an easy fix!

#3094 87 days ago

Mine came with wrong rubbers too!

#3095 87 days ago

Mine has the same issue with the ball getting stuck. If anyone knows the size of those singles let use know. Seems like more than a few have the same setup

#3096 87 days ago

Well nevermind, I found two 3/4" rubber bands in a Marco bag in the coin box. They fit perfect! Guess previous owner installed the wrong bands (or maybe it was me)

There's a setting in the menu that you have to make whether you want to go through the cities normally or randomly. Not sure which one it is.
