Quoted from sbmania:

So I've got a display glass bad and can't source a new one. Looks like I will need to replace the whole display assembly with an XPIN one. Since XPIN is currently out of orange displays, I need to choose between white, red, blue and green (I think). What's the Pinside consensus on what will look best in lieu of orange?

Have you looked at Wolfpactech's displays? They come as a Kit, easy to build, but may come fully assembled as well.

Finished designing custom Secret Service apron cards for a customer, so thought I would offer them to the club. Price is $12 for the pair including US postage ($14 for orders outside of US). Please PM me if interested in purchasing.

DB7FB381-4EC1-4519-8393-558716195E0D (resized).jpegPicked one up today. Doesn’t boot, some battery damage. But does have matching S/N boards and looks like a nice example under the dirt. Should clean up nicely. Anxious to get it running and see how it plays.

My Secret Service seems to be resetting in a strange way. While playing, the score displays turn off and the flippers stop working, but the audio is working and it seems like I can score points using my fingers (but cant see display to know if it is actually registering). Turning off and on will fix the problem for a while but then happens again. From reading, I know its likely a power issue, but not sure where to start other than replacing all the fuses.

Any ideas on where to start searching?

Power supply board voltages and caps is where I would look first.

Also, battery damage and/or ROM sockets is always a fail point of this era DE. Your game software is crashing. If it's flaky power it will usually have "problems booting", and not problems "staying booted".

I have had a few DE crash after booting and the connectors heat up.

Thanks snyper2099 and gdonovan I have a rottendog MPU, a pinscore powerboar, and a pinballpcb flipper power board - all put in around 2013, so no original old boards (other than the sound board) and no battery damage. Theyve worked fine for a few years now. I will check each of the connectors, but if they don't look black from burn what can I look for? voltage test somehow?

For the ROM sockets, what can I do other than pushing them back in?

Thanks

That’s good that you have new boards. When the display goes out can you please confirm if the playfield feature lamps still work when you say, make a standup target? If lamps still light after target registers, you could just have a bad display.
