Have a '70s Williams Star Pool pinball machine. Ball kicker works if you hit advance bonus, but doesn't work when the ball goes in the out hole behind the flippers. Any ideas?? Thanks

Hi poestahl
You are in the wrong (Sub) Forum.
Might want to mark the topic "in here" as solved and write something like "uuups, wrong forum - will ask in Elektro-Machanical, EM-Tech" ?

In EM-Tech want to describe the problem ? I do not understand "Ball-Kicker" - do You mean the "Slingshot-Kickers", the triangles above the flipper-fingers, http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=2352&picno=8927 ? Or do You mean the "Ball Release (Coil / Kicker A-22-550", responsible for "transporting the ball over to the Shooter-Lane" ?

What do You do when You "hit advance bonus" ? Do You activate something on the playfield ? Or do You push onto the "anchor-plate of Advance-Relay, M-29-1100" ?

Want to write and make a good description in "EM-Tech" ?

Another thing - Do You have a schema ? If not: ipdb http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2352 has a paginated PDF - manual and schema. It is a bit complicated to use the ipdb-schema.
I made a copy of the ipdb schema down onto my computer, extracted the schema creating JPG's. Then cut together and made a continuous schema, JPG-Format is 12 MB data. PDF-Format is 3 MB data. (I prefer JPG) If You send me a "Personal Message" with an EMail-Address, I can send You the JPG or/and the PDF. (The PDF has a lot of empty space above the Schema / below the schema, I cannot do a "better" PDF-schema).
Maybe You have a paper schema or You want to use the ipdb-schema -> simply do not write a personal message.

I am waiting for Your (new) EM-Tech topic, Greetings Rolf
