Just picked up a Wipe Out, and it’s working perfectly save for the panic mode switch. If I go into test mode, it will register an “inner panic mode” switch...I am guessing there is also an outer panic mode switch? I can’t seem to get one to register though?

Could someone take an under playfield shot of their working switch?

Appreciate the help!

Sure thing RD....always glad to help.....just be sure to ask a real man that lives nearby that knows a thing or two about Gottlieb's : ) In the meanwhile have Joe take the switch out and clean the contacts with a business card or some 2500 grit sandpaper.....I am everywhere RD.....

Thx, think we have a bad switch. Anyone have a part number for that so we can get it ordered?

#4 1 year ago's in Stargate - so if there is a manual in the cabinet- and possibly in if there is a manual in there as well....if not....GTB-27544...but to be honest - should be able to get it working - it's just a couple leaf switches - nothing fancy....but if you get a new one from Steve (or Marco), get a manual, get the slalom pyramid plastic (blue) and also think about the right ramp (it's only $40).....

We got it working. Debating what else to get for it, how much we want to put into it...
