I’m looking to get the driver board from my Shadow repaired. I’ve attempted to repair it as I’ve described in my thread here https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-shadow-shorting-drive-transistors. But I was unsuccessful and have since been playing it with the coil wires disconnected from the driver board connector. I’d like to try to get this repaired instead of using a Rottendog and want to know who you guys recommend for this kind of repair. Thanks in advance.

Be sure and mention that you worked on it. Fixing prior repairs in addition to the original problem is often more time consuming and expensive. Some people won't work on boards that have been damaged like that.
borygard and pinballmaniac40 both do board work.

Though this is an old thread, I just wanted to give a shout-out for Clive at the coin-op cauldron for board repair. Two years ago, Clive successfully repaired some pretty damaged F-14 Tomcat boards for me and patiently talked me through diagnosis and test points to determine the nature of the problem. And this weekend as I was about to send him some Party Animal boards for repair after losing some of the sounds during game play and ruling out the sound board, Clive suggested that instead I reseat all the connectors on the notoriously troublesome MPU board, and indeed that fixed the problem without my wasting the money on getting the boards diagnosed. Great service from a great company.
