Quoted from ScubaScott:

Yes, I've seen those. It just seems like everyone's ranting and raving about Comets. I'll take your guys advice and order them tomorrow. Thank you.

I ordered from them in February of '20 and relamped my entire machine. Love them and they have different options for clusters. I used the frosted lens, Warm White. In particular for the head and all GI.
Only issue I had was with the Extra Ball button and Start button. I had to replace those from Marco. They would not go back together once I removed them from the cabinet.

Quoted from bssbllr:

Was just checking on the opinion of others I have the ball bashing into my opto bracket over the magnet as well. I have been considering adding a deflector plate to help preserve ball , bracket and perhaps playfield wear having ball deflected into the playfield earlier then magnet in a thicker area. I also will be polishing bracket before population. Any opinions greatly appreciated. Also thank you for the compliment on the drop target hole.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Has one one done this alteration? I’m thinking of adding a deflector like this or cutting back the opto bracket to clear the ball path.

#1604 4 months ago

that's very cool mod

my dirty harry gun is powdercoated black. I wonder which color would suits the best?

I ordered vintage oak and gabon ebony. Have DH and IJ, will figure out which when they arrive. Couple options to look at though. Think it'll look sweet.

#1608 4 months ago

Happy to join the club guys! Knowing what I was getting, this example has a drop target in front of the warehouse. However it doesn’t work because it’s not even wired in. With that being said, does anyone have a few detailed pictures of their games wiring between the coil, and

#1609 4 months ago

Mine came with that added. I don't have access to the game at moment, but the prev owner had made some wiring notes in the manual. Board connections I believe. If those are of any help, lmk and will look after work.

Yes any document or visual references would be wonderful. This game seems to have had a pretty rough life with a lot of hacks under the hood. It sure if that’s attributed to being a sample, or just environment. Either way I was bored watching football over the weekend, I modded and painted the couple buildings.

I look forward to your help!

#1611 4 months ago

I'll put what I have here, and others may have more info as well. I believe there was a topic post about this as well.

Notes in manual that came with my DH: Notes by prev owner who added single drop assy.
J122-1 is running a white/black wire for reset drop target(up), it's an unused sol 25 according to manual.
J130-7 is marked as blue wire for drop target down. Again unused sol 6 drive to coil.
J107-2 (red-brown) is noted as to drop down away from playfield.
J107-1 (red orange ) is noted for the reset.
Summary of what is written in the solenoid table shows unused sol 6 for drop target down being voltage connection J107-2, drive being 130-7. Reset being sol 25 with voltage J107-1 and drive from J122-1.
Again can't actually access the game, as its buried 4 deep and folded at the moment.

hmmmm....was the building on fire?

#1613 4 months ago

I've got an odd switch issue going on with my DH. When you trigger the right ramp enter (switch #51), switch 31 (left ramp enter) and switch 41 (Trough opto) are registering with it. 31 and 41 are both optos and test independently. Switch 51 is a micro switch, is wired correctly and has a good diode attached to it. I took the CPU out and tested it in Flintstones and switch 31, 41, and 51 tested as they should. I took the 16 opto PCB under the playfield and tested it in Scared Stiff - Again no switch issues found. Not sure where to go from here. I didn't test the cpu from flintstones or the opto PCB from scared stiff in DH because they are not in the same location. Any thoughts??

Are they all on a common row or column? Sounds like your issue is under the playfield

Picked up a DH and have the EOS of the upper flipper not connected.

It has 3 wires, 2 oranges ones and one black. On the left lower flip the orange is soldered at the lower pin while at the right flipper it's the opposite soldered on the highest pin of the eos.

Is this right, shouldn't it be the same?
And how should it be connected to the upper flipper ? anyone can share a picture of his setup?

Thx

Very early stages of tear down on my Dirty Harry. I have some serious damage on the magnet area of the playfield. Has anyone seen this happen before and does anyone have any suggestions for a fix? I know you can get the new core for the magnet but the playfield fix seems like it could be a pain.

Wow that is crazy wear. I guess you could bondo,paint then clear that area. You really can’t see it under there anyway. How is the rest of the playfield ? I actually have a NOS one that I could possibly let go for the right price.

Rest of the playfield isn't to bad at all to be honest, just that one area seemed to really get beat up. I'm also in the middle of a playfield swap on my MB which is taking a while but I may take you up on that offer. Thank you

Had similar although not as bad wear on mine. I put a new magnet core in for a nice level playfield and covered the wear with a Mylar patch with a hole cut in for the magnet core.

Thank you for the help and idea! My wife has a cricket as well so I'll be asking here to help with the fix. Still may try and fill it but I think mylar over the top will add a lot of protection.

No worries mate. It’s properly well hidden under there so you could use some two part filler. Cram a load in there and cut a new hole for the magnet core then paint it orange and cover over with Mylar

I was able to take a few of those parts right to my local graphic printer and they were able to scan and recreate them. Cost me about $15 each and had them in a days time.
Also you can transfer the decals on the bottom of your ramps to new ramps. Here is a tutorial that shoes you how.

Thanks . I have one that’s damaged so it would need to be repaired . Does anyone have the files ?

#1638 3 months ago

Picked up my DH a few months ago. Great theme, great game. Having an issue with the playfield gun. When you go to load the gun, the ball doesn’t stop in the gun when it drops down. It falls out of the barrel. This happens probably half of the time. I raised the back leg levelers all the way up but still have this problem. Was thinking of putting a couple layers of tape or the like at the end of the barrel to help “catch it” before it falls out. Any other owners having this issue and suggestions?

Thanks.

#1639 3 months ago

Mine occasionally dribbles out the end!! Probably 1:10.
Was watching some INDISC footage from either this year or last year I can’t recall but even theirs did it.
Perhaps if there was a way to decelerate the ball before it landed in the gun it may stop it running out the end?

#1640 3 months ago

To stop the ball from falling out of the gun, loosen the wire habitrail that goes to the gun and move it a little to the right. The circular exit to the habitrail should be slightly to the right of the hole where the ball enters the gun.

Here is a video fix from TNT Amusments. Go to 12:38 to see it:

Check the magnet and surrounding area of the playfield for damage.
Make sure the gun is working.

And, probably not.
Hope you find one. It's a great game.

The left ramp is usually beat up from firing the gun at it. You can get a replacement ramp for it though.
