Just bought a WW. Love the game so far. My question is what is the impact the spinning disks should have on the ball? My game has replacement decals on the spinners and there is little to no impact. I would have thought they are supposed to "throw" the ball around pretty good. If so where do you buy the good spinner decals?

Quoted from gilerakos:

Hi again, Kostas from Athens Greece and I need your help once more for repairing my Whirlwind. The problem is that when I turn on the machine first ball wont eject. After about 30 seconds when all coils work the ball ejects. After that no problem with the game. If I lose and press to start no problem. The first ball ejects fine. If I turn off the game and on problem remains for the first ball. Any ideas? Thanks for your time...

I would check the connections to the eject solenoid. Maybe reflow the solder. Possibly try another eject solenoid. Lastly, for the easy stuff, reseat all the board connectorsSounds like a thermal issue where once it heats up the connection is made. Intermittent problems are the worst. Just some simple thoughts. Good luck.

Starting to spend more time on the pin. What a great game. Compared to todays complex rule sets it is simpler but very rewarding. Really glad I picked this up. 2 questions.

Question: Has any one removed the play field mylar and replaced the insert decals? How did that work out? My play field is pretty nice except that the decal inserts under the mylar have broken down over time.

I was reading that the original translights has a "W" sticker put over the "C" for Cubs on the kids baseball cap. It looks like my translight has the sticker. Question: has any one removed the sticker and how did that work out?
