I've been collecting and fixing arcade machines and consoles for years. I still have all the ones I played as a kid, I'm 43. I always loved pinball the most but found the expense was too much to own my own. Fast forward to the last few years and I have a good deal of disposable income so I jumped in and bought one,kings of steel, I loved that game. I did a lot of cosmetic work to it and changed a coil or two. I sold that for a pinbot and then sold that for a mars God of War. I recently picked up a Mr mrs pacman. After putting leds in the pac started giving me trouble and would barely turn on. I looked to this site and got alot of great advice on what maybe causing the issue. But then I found a haunted house in really good condition like 9/10. Went and picked that up and takes the guy down from 3,500 to 2,000! He just didn't have the room and was a older gentleman. This this was near New. New flippers, coils, serviced boards it looks and played great. I get it home excited as hell and boom, it turns on coins up but won't start a game. Again I turn to the pinside community for advice and I get some ideas. Still nothing. As I sit her watching my beautiful 2,000$ pinball machine do everything but play a game I feel defeated. I know it's an easy fix but it's so frustrating that I paid alot of money to me anyway for something I didn't even get to play once yet after having it home. Ughhh. I know I'm a little dramatic but dammit just work already wtf
