    Hi Folks

    This is my first ever post here, hope one day to be posting about a full size table.

    Anyway I recently picked up a Star Galaxy Pinball by Mightymast, I've seen a few posts regarding upgrading these, hoping someone may be able to help with my issue.

    Basically the unit powers on, can start a game, all the scoring targets work etc. However the flippers, slingshots and pop bumpers aren't working and the spinning bumper isn't activating either. I did find a dry solder connection on the central PCB from one of the flipper inputs, I re-flowed it, but still no life.

    Has anyone else had this issue? Happy for any pointers.

    Many thanks.

    Yes, this POS used toy pin tech with a metal playfield strip and a spring stretched in front of the slingshots to fire them. The wire from the spring passed through a hole in the playfield but after much use (or shipping) started to shift and ground against playfield. It gave the same problems you are seeing. I used a piece of insulation and JB Weld to isolate the wire and it worked fine afterward.

    Hi KossMan,

    Just wanted to thank you for your previous post! I've just picked up a faulty Star Galaxy Pinball and I very much doubt that I'd have managed to fix it without finding your post with the fix. It's all working like a dream now

    Many thanks!
