Quoted from Meeksthegeeks:

hey everyone, where are you getting your clear ramps? My dad has a Genesis and would love to install those!

Pinsider freeplay40 makes and sells them

I ended up with a spare set. If Mark doesn't have stock you are welcome to buy mine (they are still in the box).. but I am also in Canada so shipping will be a bit more than if buying from Mark.

Good luck

Quoted from tandem2:

I've got my Genesis machine almost completely re-assembled, but I'm not sure if I have the right shooter rod plate. This wasn't with the other parts of the game and it just doesn't seem like the right fit.
Anyone out there who could verify that this is the right or wrong shooter rod plate?
Thanks,
Jody

Sorry a little on this but here is the photo.

If anyone has any insight on my latest issues...that would be amazing.

I'm looking for a left slingshot plastic if anyone has one. Bottom piece only would be fine too.

Lol , I think most of us are looking for them. I'm almost to the point to where I'm going to try to Frankenstein it myself

#107 6 months ago

I had to buy 2 separate lots of used plastics on eBay to get my Genesis plastics to 100%.
I think this would be a decent candidate for repro plastics.

Picked up a Genesis today and of course i need the bottom left sling

Anyone have a decent scan so i can make a temp replacement?

Thanks

( if the right is exactly the same i could just use that i think) im not a graphics guy at all.)

#109 6 months ago

they are different unfortunately.

#110 6 months ago

Bummer.

Anyone willing to make a high res scan for us? Or anyone already have one? I have a friend who can clean it up and I can make it available.
Thanks

#111 6 months ago

That would be amazing...mine is held together with hope and glue.

Super exited about restoring my Genesis. Just picked up my nos playfield from Chris at HEP and it looks amazing!!! This one is going to play fast.

#113 5 months ago

That looks great! Genesis is already hard; with a playfield that smooth...

That blue is soo light. Mine is a bit darker... dingier is maybe the right word

#114 5 months ago

Colors look much deeper in person. Love the look. The flash makes it look lighter. Color is the main reason I looked for an nos for so long. Most looked kind of greenish tint by now.

#115 4 months ago

Wow awesome NOS playfield.

I recently finished clearing mine, curing now. Cant wait to get it back together.

So how hard are NOS translites to find?

#117 4 months ago
Quoted from Its_me_aj:

Pinball Resource had them in stock until I bought the the game... Now I can't find one for a reasonable price. Mine doesn't look bad, so I live with it.

I have one of these, but haven't installed it.

#118 4 months ago

I’ll probably have to go theat route. I’d prefer original NOS but what’s available is what’s available.

I’ve had issues with the game booting up since I got ir But I think I finally found the issue. Ordered a new replacement power supply And I have to repin and replace the 2 6 pin connectors

Is there any source for new cardboard cut out around the robot? Not sure what it's called.

My restoration is almost complete.

Quoted from Wickedbass:

I would imagine someone would who had one apart could send you a scan of it. I think it's just heavy card stock.

There has to be a scan of this floating around somewhere. I'll check and see what's involved in removing mine. I haven't used my old scanner in years, but it may work with my current computer.

Someone should reproduce this.

#121 3 months ago

Clear Genesis ramps now available...Contact me for details.

Looks great! I’m thinking about adding led’s to mine as well. Do u remember how much it cost to do that?

#124 3 months ago

I don’t have any sound working on my machine so I finally but the bullet and bought a new sound board from pbresource which I should get sometime next week. I was going to get my original board repaired, but it was only $30 more for a known working board. I just hope that’s the issue. :o)

You first repinned every single connector on the game and did the ground mods before buying the board right? Every system 80/80a/80b game I’ve ever messed with had sound issues until I at the least repinned the connectors

Leds for this game cost about $50.

Ground mod was done, but I haven’t repinned the connectors except for the big one connecting the mpu to the driver board. I checked the others and they seem fine, but who knows... and you might be right because I got the sound board today and still no sound. the main reason I bought the sound board is because the tech who got it up and running said that was the issue so it serves me right for listening to him. Lol, anyone need a working sound board?

Also, I tried to see if the manual would tell me what size/type of connectors I need, but I couldn’t find anything in there. Any suggestions as to where I can find that info?

If repinning doesn’t work then it has to be the driver board because i already tested the mpu board in another machine and it worked fine.

Those stupid connectors are super hard to find right now. I used to be able to get them from Great Plains but he was out of stock and basically said the last time I looked that they were impossible to find. Someone will probabaly chime in with the exact pin info but I thought they were 156 bifurcated. They might be found somewhere. If so, I’d like to know myself. There isn’t much hope for a ton of these gottliebs without being able to replace the connectors

One more quick place to check with a sound issue is the power supply. I have had cold solder on the pins of that little power board right next to the sound board cause sound issues too. If I’m fact the edge connectors are ok you might look to the power supply and see if you are not getting a connection there.

I just checked marco’s website and it looks like they have quite a few connectors, but I have no clue which ones are the type I need.

#130 3 months ago

I did find the below link to help troubleshoot sound issues, but I have no clue how to do a short to ground test. Is that done with a multimeter or something else?

https://www.maaca.org/viewtopic.php?t=2044

#131 3 months ago

Sound is finally working!! I checked the pins and they were good so the last thing it could be was the driver board so I ordered a rottendog from Bay Area amusements which came in today and it fixed the problem.

Now there is something else I need to figure out/fix.... During test mode it says switch 74 is closed which didn’t show up until I installed the new board. That’s the 2nd position trough, but i have no idea where that’s located. Does anyone know where that is?

Anyone have any plastics for sale? I need slingshots and both side plastics above left & right outlines.

Also looking for NOS or used unfaded translite.

#135 56 days ago

I think I asked this elsewhere but I’ve seen people swap in clear or colored pop caps.

Where did you guys source these? Someone once told me that B/W caps fit....but I really don’t see how that is possible?

They are swapping the gottlieb pop bumper bodies for Bally/Williams style bodies. Then the B/W style caps fit.
