I just received a beautiful all original "WHITE WATER" in unbelievable condition & shape, that has the home rom in it (LH6). I have some questions about it, that I do NOT think is normal, so I am looking for some help and advice. Do I NEED a DIFFERENT "sound chip" or is something else needed, to go ALONG with this home rom (LH6) programming?

1) When going through "DISASTER DROP" it will register that shot ... BUT ... there is NO sound when going through there at all. I thought it should say "DISASTER DROP"?

2) When making the "INSANITY FALLS" ramp shot, that will also register the shot ... BUT ... again, there is NO sound when going over the ramp at all. If I do make that "INSANITY FALLS" shot on my initial plunge shot and make that as the "skill" shot, it WILL say "INSANITY FALLS", but only on the skill shot, NOT at any other time.

3) When coming down the right inlane, it will ALWAYS say "MULTI MILLIONS" like it should ... BUT ... when I make that shot and YES, it is LIT "MULTI MILLIONS" (I know that it is a time based shot), it will only register 300,00 points.

Finally, is this the best ROM to use for WH2O, or should I be using the L5 version, or even a different version? I like having the river class bonus held option, the save ball option and the additional sound & light flashing show at the end of the game with the "HOME ROM". What do you think of my above problems and what ROM do most of you WH20 owners use? THANK YOU in advance. Take care!

Quoted from TheLaw:

First thing I wonder is it really registering those shots? Those shots have an entry switch to the ramp...so when it flips that switch it makes an enter noise...but it sounds like it's not fliping the completed ramp switch.
comlete these ramps in test mode and make sure it's firing 2 switches, not just ramp entry

THANKS for getting back to me. YES, when I make EITHER of those shots, I will look on the color DMD and it will show the animation and count that shot. Also, when I go to the "STATUS REPORT" before plunging my next ball, those ball counts ARE registering in there also.

Quoted from TheLaw:

Oh...ha...ok lets talk audio. Really it should opnly say the name of the diaster if that disaster is a lit shot

So the ONLY time it will say "DISASTER DROP" or "INSANITY FALLS" is if that shot is LIT, to advance the rafts ... otherwise there will be NO SOUND at all, just the animation on the DMD?

Is this with just the "home rom" or ANY rom for WH20?

On the "MILLIONS SHOT" ... it does NOT do ANY animations or show ANYTHING at all, it just scores 300,000 points on my score at that time.

You are correct on it only saying "DISASTER DROP" or
"INSANITY FALLS" if that hazard arrow is LIT. Is that also with the L5 rom?

I detached BOTH my retina and macula in my left eye and only have about 2% vision in it, so it's hard for me to see these switches and my depth perception is way off ... plus I am not really skilled at ALL, in working on pins.

If I remove that long mountain on top, I will be able to see the switch easily? How will I know if it is bad? It does NOT show up defective in the test.

THANKS to both of you guys for helping out. Just curious as to which rom you guys are using for WH20?

Thanks, I really appreciate it!

No rush, post it when you have the time, plus it's a Holiday weekend for you and your family. Take care.

I have not done that yet, I meant it showed no errors on start up. When I go in test mode, do I go to switch test and roll the ball up and see if it registers?

I know there are DIFFERENT types of tests in the menu and don't know which actual one to use. Sorry for being un-knowledgable on this stuff, but I have a skilled service technician do all my repairs, but he won't be able to make it out my way for a little while yet. THANKS AGAIN!

THANKS, I will try that tomorrow and report back to you guys. I'm out with my family and won't be home until later tonight. This definitely will help.

OK, I got it ... I will listen and try these tomorrow ...

It sounds even easy enough for me

OK guys ...

I went into the "TEST" mode under (T1 Switch Edges). I rolled the pinball over the switches and did NOT pick up the playfield and unscrew that top mountain piece, because I can't pick up anything over 5 pounds right now, because of my eye situation. The results were as follows:

The "RIGHT INLANE SWITCH" (Lites MULTI-MILLIONS) beeps/registers and shows as SWITCH#27 "RIGHT FLIP LANE"
Entering the "SPINE CHILLER RAMP" (1st Switch)(for MULTI-MILLIONS) beeps/registers and shows as SWITCH#46 "LEFT RAMP ENTER"
Going thru "SPINE CHILLER RAMP" (2nd Switch)(MULTI-MILLIONS) beeps/registers and shows as SWITCH#68 "DISASTER DROP ENTER"

I do NOT know if this matters at all, but I then went into "TEST" mode under (T2 Switch Levels). The results were:

It went through a continuous cycle on it's own, going through all the switches ... the ONLY one that "SHOWED UP ON THE DISPLAY" from above was SWITCH#68 "DISASTER DROP ENTER". There was NOTHING showing there, for SWITCH#27 & SWITCH#46 in this test at all.

I also now have a credit dot after "Free Play" with the following ERROR MESSAGES:
By the way, BOTH of these SWITCHES #47 & #48 DO SHOW UP on the (T2 Switch Levels) test display.

Lastly in my long novel, when that "MULTI MILLIONS" shot is LIT and I make it ... it scores 50,000 points EVERYTIME, not 300,000
I don't know if that actually matters, but I thought I might as well mention it.
