Hi Guys. I have a Star Wars Data East pinball machine that I got from an online pinball company. I will not mention their name but I will never order from them again. As my first pinball machine, I paid WAY too much for this 'refurbished' machine. $4495 before shipping.
Anyway, I received the machine and was very disappointed in the condition. From the broken power cord still wrapped in electrical tape from the previous owner to the peeling paint on the back box to the peeling paint and deep wood chips on the main cabinet, very disappointed. The most disappointing part is the gameplay due to playfield issues.
I don't know much about pinball machines but there are vinyl stickers that have been placed on the playfield in certain areas that are REALLY thick. They stick up about 1/64" or more. The problem is that they occasionally stop the ball. How do I fix this? The vinyls are stuck on really well.
