Hey everyone. Nabbed a nice shaq attaq from a local arcade. Bought a new dome and installed it recently, and also polished up all the metals with 0000 steel wool. I use these on guitar frets occasionally, and they work great... just lots of dust you gotta watch out for.

QUESTIONS:

1. Knocker. It came with one, but it doesn’t work. Tried testing it in the service mode but no luck. It looks like it’s wired up okay.... I think?

2. Vari-target. It’s stuck it registers hits, but it doesn’t move in or out of its cave.

3. Volume. How do you adjust this thing?

4.

As many of you have already said, this game is super underrated. Happy to be part of this club. We can all say we were here first, when in 5-10 years, our tables will be going for $7k

For volume, where it says volume in that picture, there should be a small twist knob. Looks like yours is broken off.

I have a vari target issue as well, doesn't register/reset ,mine is going in to get shopped soon anyways.

Ahh, that’ll do it I’m guessing I could use a small screwdriver to adjust it?

Please report back here on how you make out with the vari target issue. I’d love to get mine fixed eventually.

Thanks!

Anyone have an extra playfield for Shaq Attaq that you would want to sell?

Trying to do some touch up painting on Shaq Attaq. Anybody had any luck matching the hardwood floor color and the blue on the playfield?

Just got a nice shaq attaq. The motor to move the basketball hoop isnt working. Relay kicks in and come to find out that its missing the wiring entirely from the motor. Anyone have a picture of what color wire goes where on the motor?

Yo! The pics you provided are for the spinner. If you see mine are for the hoop motor. Its much lower on the playfield. When you have a chance id love to see your wiring.

Thanks! Looks like motor was disconnected because it can be pretty loud but it works. Did a full LED swap and happy with the results.

One of the inner threads for the leg bolts is completely stripped. Anyone know where i can find the inner leg bracket replacement?

I’m just servicing my second only shaq which was neglected for years, fun machine and looking good now a few issues I’m hoping someone can help. I’m much more familiar with Bally Williams.
1 is free play only possible when switched to tournament mode.
2 in play mode, is the centre yellow switch supposed to activate-drop the back drop targets?? This is what this one does ,seems odd but is that a feature?
3 I’m sure this one is a fault. In multi-ball, if a ball goes into either up kicker, it just sits there until multiballs drain then pops it out of either up kicker after the period of doing a ball search. Problem is a second ball could sit beside a ball already in the up kicker so that’s just not right.
In normal game the upkickers work perfectly. I tested them in switch test cleaned spade connectors, the micro switches themselves seem fine out of circuit, This definitely only happens in multiball but I haven’t played it too much yet, just testing all features with the glass off.
Hoping someone here has an idea on this strange one.

On # 1 - yes, has to be in tournament mode for free play.

What is a really nice Shaq going for this week? I may have to make room for a CC. Mine has zero issues.

Just picked up a Shaq Attack. It’s actually in really nice shape but a few issues I fear are damn near unobtainable. Anywhere I can find a new hoop motor or at least some parts for it? Motor is weak and the gears are stripped.

Also. The cam for the vari target assembly is broken in half.

Anywhere these are available?

Pinball Resource may be able to re-build your motor.
