Looking for a decal for the front of my DH, anyone have one or know a reasonably priced source, someone cut a hole in the cabinet for a coin box I guess, I'm planning to plug it by cutting a piece of plywood, sanding etc...

Hi guys. I'm having an issue with my DH. I've linked my topic in hope of getting some advice.
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/dirty-harry-a-19746-and-the-ramp-issue#post-5775010

I would either bend the arm slightly over or if you take the ramps up I would check the magnet up on the right corner if it is mushroomed. That would kill 2 birds with one stone. Its quite a job taking up the ramps though.

Thanks for the help jhanley. I'll get to taking out the ramps and report back.
I'll keep my original post updated with what I find.

At least I'm not dealing with that mess PAR !!

My ball is getting stuck between the left ramp and the safe house far too often. Am I missing something there?

That's happened more than once?
It looks correct, but I have never seen a ball stuck there. Not sure wbat it's hanging up on.
Maybe post a pic of tbat area without the ball.
Is the rolled over edge of the ramp cracked or bent at all?

#1309 8 months ago

Here is an old post. Showing the ball stuck same place. Just for reference.

That happened occasionally on my DH too. I made a piece of transparent plastic to fix the issue.

Going to be selling a Dirty Harry that I recently picked up $3,500 super nice. Just needs a good shop job. PM me

My safe house eject (switch 73) will phantom fire during game play. I replaced the switch and diode and it still does it

Went through switch edge test and hit all of them, nothing triggers incorrectly.
Aside from a possible diode on another switch , is it likely the spade connector that hooks to the switch is corroded and it’s just not noticeable. Or should I look at the connectors on the board ?
Thanks for any thoughts

So you replaced the switch and it still phantom fires? Shake the machine a bit or hit the playfield with your fist during test mode to see if possible vibrations are causing it. Are there any other issues with the machine? Any other solenoids firing when not supposed to? My safehouse eject will phantom fire twice while playing only when the ball bricks out of the scoop. I will look at mine tomorrow to see if i can be of more help. I just noticed Its been a while since you posted, did you find out whats going on?

This has been the only issue. I tried all the banging in test mode. Did allot of activating the pop bumper to see if that activated it. Nothing did it.
No phantom closures from any switch in test mode.
It’s been doing it less.. I figured I’d look at connectors next
Thanks

#1315 7 months ago

Hey guys! I need a right ramp. Does anyone have one or know of any being made? I broke a large chunk off the left wall at the ramp entrance. Can probably repair if need be with reinforcement on the backside and maybe a metal protector. If no replacement, has anyone dealt with a repair on this area? Thanks

Thanks for the suggestion on starship-fantasy. Unfortunately, they’re not making DH ramps yet.

#1318 7 months ago

Bummer. This is the other major source of ramps I know of, maybe he might make them: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/freeplay40-ramps

#1319 7 months ago

One more possibility, but it looks like he's not doing Dirty Harry either, yet.

I'd be in for a new ramp. Someday maybe.

#1321 7 months ago

They recently had the left ramp NOS up on eBay for a day or two till it was bought. Always good to check eBay often.

You need to go into menu and set up on free play. If you have the manual it will instruct you how to do so. Enjoy the game.

$500 has both ramps and a good candidate for a wall hanger. Says may entertain separating.

#1329 5 months ago

Dmd color and side blades installed.
Waiting on pinball pro speakers, movie video mod and 2x spots to light the playfield.

How do you reset the highest score you see on the screen?

Anyone with a NOS left ramp for sale?

For the back of the playfield they have the same design as the side blades.

#1332 5 months ago

Have you lifted the playfield to check the connection?
Does it work during switch edge test?

Try and reseat the connections in the back box on the flipptronic board.

Also check through this thread at the end it says check a fuse.

Does anyone happen to have a pair of ramp flaps laying around I could borrow? I need to make accurate drawings of a set so I can reproduce them for an upcoming project.

I sent you a template of both flaps. Check your email. Let me know if that will work.

#1344 4 months ago

You know that the left flipper controls different options before shooting the ball at the start of each new ball. I’ve noticed that if I don’t choose the option that makes the magnet grab the ball, after enough times the “Magnet is broken” credit dot pops up. Choosing the magnet to grab the ball makes it go away..for me.

#1346 4 months ago

Prepping to repair the broken right ramp, and while disconnecting wires under the playfield, I noticed that the wires for the connection of the Warehouse Contraband and Collect Magazine do not match. Clearly not all connections have matching color wires on both sides, but these two lights have never worked, and I wonder if it’s because the connection is incorrect. Mainly because there is a empty connection with matching wires close by. Can someone please verify that connection coming out of the Warehouse please? Thanks!!

#1347 4 months ago

I did close up picks. The green/black and white/orange should be the wire not connected as it is there for the switch of the original production of a target that was removed. I have modded my game and added the target for the warehouse back that is why I have wires connected to it. My game works flawless.

Anyone know of a source for ramp decals? I see the left ramp decal on Marcos, but I’m needing the helicopter and others for the right ramp.

Now that I have some working molds, I guess i can let the cat out of the bag. New release ramps number 4 and 5 are far enough along to be announced. My next two 2021 releases will be the small and large ramps for Dirty Harry! Note: these are preliminary pieces shown, there is much more work left to do on the molds before they are finished.

I have at least 4 more molds to make this month, and then I will start running production on these ramps once I ascertain initial interest. If you would like to be added to the interest list for any ramp I have announced, send me a message and I will add you.
