Okay I haven't fixed the switch, but I found a workaround. I just stuck a screwdriver across two of the switch contacts and got it to register after about a second. That's good enough for me!

You may need a new diode.

mystman12 contact cleaner or deoxit might do the trick

Quoted from sawbill:

Does anyone know where to find service switch 3 bank assembly for the coin door? Marco has 4 bank, but hasn’t had 3 bank for years. This is for my Bad Cats, BTW.

Going back to this discussion beginning at post 2877, Troxel has the system 11 switch assemblies including the center self latching switch...

https://troxelrepair.com/product/williams-buttons/

I ended up fixing my old switch and kept the Troxel assembly as a spare. So I didn't actually try it. But the only difference I see is that the sheet metal connecting bracket is a bit thinner and the mounting holes aren't tapped. You could tap your own or switch to sheet metal screws.

Do you realize that you have to hold it for more than 5 seconds to reset the high score.

Nope - didn't know -- always hated hitting that button by mistake...

#3206 29 days ago

Alright, I have a bit of a long question... You know how you can rebuild the wms 3-7 driver board lamp drivers by changing out the transistors and removing the large 27 ohm resistors? I've seen it done two ways, change TIP42 to Mosfet and add 16 resistors, or an easier change to TIP125/TIP127 and swap the resistor out with a little 10k 1/4w guy.

My question is - what about system 9/11? Looking at pinwiki, they have only the one method listed (mosfet), but since both worked on 3-7, and the architecture is basically the same, would the easier tip125 swap work on a sys 9/11?

Service switches:

Mouser part numbers:

3 button metal holder: 611-C0310
4 button metal holder: 611-C03175
White cap: 611-F0202
Red cap: 611-F0203
push switch (momentary): 611-F2UOA
push switch (locking): 611-F2UEETB/120049

Digikey also carries, but tends to cost more for these items.

Just thought I’d ask this here: does anyone else replace Tnuts w just a nut and washer under Pf?

I’m restoring a diner and have multiple cracked screws posts. I heat the tnut before unscrewing, but some crack off (the posts).

Any reason to NOT just reattach the new post w a nut under pf?

Sure, if the replacement post is long enough to take the washer and a nylock nut.

The only reason to not do this would be if it's a post that you might need to remove with some regularity, although I can't imagine what that would be.

The posts crack because the factory used the wrong loctite on them, once you replace the tnut you probably wont have this issue.

Hi everyone, just finishing up my Pinbot reconditioning and I have a couple lingering issues. The weird one is when I turn the game on all (or a few, can't really tell) of the solenoids on IJ11 pulse. It's not major, it's a quick fire, not enough to launch a ball but I don't recall that happening before I had the thing apart but honestly I have no idea. Is this normal when you power the game on?

I'll answer my own question. I shorted out the 28v flash lamps which knocked out the respective transistors and the 74f04 IC. That IC was causing three transistors to get locked on, but also causing something to tell all the solenoids to fire. Replacing the transistors as well as the IC solved all of those problems.

I just picked up a Roller Games and lights in back box don’t work. Has anyone else had that problem and know where to find the problem?

Quoted from taz16:

I would start by taking a close look at the interconnect board. The connection to the lights could be loose and/or toasty.
