....and need a new ramp too...are these unobtainable?

#202 8 months ago

Can someone shoot a few pics of the main wire ramp, specifically where it mounts to the playfield at the center and to the right as well. Past owner did some bad repairs to fix it and I dont have the original pieces and no pics of the mounting area. And if you're really adventurous, a measurement of how high the ramp is off of the playfield in the center. Thanks gents

Here are a few pics. I'm not sure if you'll be able to see what you're looking for here.

Thanks, but yes, I really need a shot of the mounting point that mates to the playfield, looks like it goes straight down in the last pic, not sure on the anchor point near the capitol building.

#205 8 months ago

here are a few pics I grabbed real quick before leaving to work today looks to me like only 2 mounting points one at the eat at Joes sign in the second picture you can see it right at the "J" a rod going down there that appears to be part of the ramp ? the other mount is below the playfield as it goes straight down thru holes right at the entrance to white house there

#206 8 months ago

That makes sense actually, it appears on my machine the former owner placed a makeshift support near the capitol, but I don't see a weld point. If you can get me shot under the plastic by the mount that would be great!

#207 8 months ago

Are you talking where the ramp meets under the White House? You keep saying Capital which is in the center of the playfield. These pics are of the area under the white house.

Mike[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

The area I need a pic of is at the upper right of the playfield, my white house area is all good. There should be a single support coming from the playfield there(right at the turn/switch). Previous owner put a makeshift support near the capitol building (actually more to the right under a plastic) so I thought there was a support there too. Thanks for the effort though!

Yeah he did a great job on this...I Purchased one to do the same with. If anyone else plans on doing this, reach out to me and maybe we can collaborate on ideas. I have a bunch of stuff going on now.

Yes that's the spot. It looks like just a straight run to the bottom. Any chance of a shot under the plastic? If too much hassle, I'll figure it out. TY

Hey Guys!!
Anyone have a wire guide that monkfe can get from you? Think I figured out that his is missing the support leg for the curve in the back of Joe's place. Otherwise maybe someone can help him with measurements so he can make a new "L" part to get welded on.

Is there a good source for quality decals?

#217 4 months ago

Just purchased Secret Service- not familiar with Pin Ball workings so a little assist would be much appreciated. The lower score and info works fine but the top total score(assume its total score) does not work. Also AA batteries were corroding and some damage to the holder. Is the battery eliminator i see on ebay the fix, plus correct the score board? Is the LED conversion truly a plug and play and best answer for this game?
Thanks any and all for the tech help.

Odds are you will need a new display, LED works fine.

Get NVRAM from Pintech.

Thanks. What about the batteries, what are they doing?

#220 4 months ago
Quoted from BobH47f:

They need to go. They will ruin your board, if they have not already done so. Take them out.
If the corrosion has traveled beyond the terminals, you might want to have the board looked at by a good tech. Check out Chris at https://www.pinballpirate.com/
He is very familiar with DE pins and is very reasonable.

Got it. I ordered the nvram, thanks guys for the help. It’s a fun machine for the grandkids and even us old kids!

I installed nvram 6264 to replace batteries as no top score issue. No luck same as before, lower Per game Scoring and credits but no top score. Is there any setups I am missing? Game plays fine just no info on top displays. How do I know if display is bad, it looks discolored compared to bottom display (brownish).
Thanks for any help.

Hey, newer Secret Service owner here. I’m getting intermittent call out sounds “agent one”, “agent two” and “agent three” depending on what ball, multiple times throughout game play. Also, an occasional random machine gun sound will go off too. I’m hoping it is as simple as adjusting a few hard to locate, touchy switches and not issues with my boards. Off hand, does anyone here happen to know where I can locate the source of these call outs? Any tips for fixing the issue is much appreciated. Thanks!

Go into switch test and bang on the playfield and see what switches come up on the display!

Don’t know about the machine gun sounds, but are you sure the other callouts aren’t “one agent”, “two agent”, & “three agent”? This call out tells you how many of the White House agent targets are still standing.

I don't know if any owners would be interested but we've been working on replacement buildings based on a request from another owner (oh yea, that one post above... heh). This is the capitol and then we have the white house and FBI building. I can post the others as the finished pieces are printed.

#235 27 days ago

Not quite sure since we haven't completed the project yet. We're finishing printing the other 2 buildings for test fitting. Once we get confirmation on those we should know more. The larger two buildings do take some time to print, in pieces. I'll update as we get closer. I'm sure monkfe will be happy to show them off once he has them installed.

Anyone know where I can buy a new "44 Top Right (Ramp) Switch "?

Another question: I've seen an intermittent issue with power up and wondering if anyone has also seen it. Occasionally when the game is first powered up (normally we shut off game when done playing) the lights come on (playfield, backbox, display *just dashes), but no audio and game never "fully" boots to the point where it's ready to play. Ultimately it always boots up after leaving it on for 5-15 mins or toggling the power switch a couple times.

Not sure if this is related, but also noticed that sometimes after a power cycle, the game just gives free ball after free ball. Doesnt even show what ball you're on. *This game might be haunted.

an alternative to the ramp switch might be a MRS switch ...reach out to sonic he makes them for various machines, some with custom mounts (shadow comes to mind). It has a very similar location (on the wireform) It has a diode built in and would plug right into the matrix as a direct replacement.

I have noticed that when playing my secret service Sometimes I hear a car engine revving sound when I pull back the plunger and other times not ? I can play several games where it makes the sound and then it just doesn't make it anymore another time I play it ? Anyone else's game make that sound when plunger is pulled back ?

It seems to be the ball leaving the switch in the shooter lane on mine.

I'm going to have to check mine tonight, I don't recall it make noise when plunged.

Ok I maybe mistaken then when exactly its heard but certainly when shooting the ball into play. Will be checking that switch this eve. after I get home.

I love that sound and often times I short plunge the ball barely off the lane switch to roll back and repeat it. The sound repeats only three times doing it in this manner so I hard plunge the 4th time into the game as its all revved up. LOL

I can do this each time with balls 1,2 and 3.

The only time the sound is missing is if I plunge the ball too quickly. Seemingly the ball needs to rest on the switch but only for half a second or so. Also, no sound on the free ball I get from draining too quickly.

I hope this helps. It's a great game.

I never really noticed that noise but it does indeed do that on mine when plunged.
