she seams to be in great shape except the slingshot plastics
fingers crossed it will happen
make it so
In a home environment, these are a waste of time and money. Even if you put 5,000 plays on it, the game should hold up just fine.
Even on route, the game should hold up just fine. Keep the balls in good shape, re-wax every few hundred plays and just enjoy the thing.
It's worth it to fix it, by saying it's not worth it I meant it's a lot easier to buy the replacement looms. It's not worth fixing because it's a lot easier and a lot less tedious than the replacements.
Quoted from Bendit:
Why is it not worth it? The game can cleanly be back online in minutes. Just wondering.
Everything working, with the flippers aligned properly, you should have no problem making any shot. There are all sorts of things you can do to make a game easier, but if it's not working correctly with the flippers lined up maybe something else is going on.
Quoted from mbelofsky:
It did play well. I will continue to test it.
The right flipper looks good. The left flipper is a little too high.
Quoted from mbelofsky:
The picture with the game off (top picture) is the original way I set the flippers about a year ago.
One trick that I like to use to see if the flipper are even, I like to compare them while they are fully extended. They are closer to each other and in my opinion, much easier to see if they are not even.
I set my flippers so that they are the same angle as the lane guides, I ignore the holes.
You should post the issue. The cannons are broken a lot, so people have a lot of experience fixing them. I'm sure you'll have a very quick answer.
This is what I did when I worked on it. It's the way to go if you are going to do DYI.
I'd still buy the replacements.
Quoted from Fytr:
I never bother replacing the plugs/pins I just cut out the middle section of the harness where the wires get weak from the constant movement and splice in fresh wires. That way I still have the original wire colors/patterns on both ends of the harness for reference with the schematics, etc.
