Hi everyone. I am new to troubleshooting pinball machines although I have played for many years.
I bought a refurbished 8Ball Deluxe off this site about 3 months ago. Very nice looking machine but having some issues.
Most recently, suddenly my 4 score displays do not light up at all. neither does the fifth display --which is for ball in play and credits.
the machine will still play, you just dont know the score or ball in play.
My manual suggested maybe it was an issue with the MPU board and that it should be replaced? However, I had an extra MPU board that the seller sent me as we trouble shot some other issues previously. When i used this replacement board --problem with displays still persists. So i dont think it is the MPU board.
I emailed the seller for advise and was told to find a local pinball repair guy to help me. As i am still paying for this machine, I really dont have extra money now to find a repair guy.
Anyone have any advice on possible fixes for this issue? Anything I can get is appreciated.
