Hi There i am new to pinnbal machines maybe you can assist me.

I try with a friend to get his getaway fixed but we have some issues we dont know where to start.

We have some strange issue with our illumination, it works only in testmode, until we raise the power over level 6, then it stops working.

The machine has a new Powerdriver Board, we checked the connectors for burn signs, reseated the wires into the plugs.

We have some issues with the supercharger too, its really slow, its seems to run smooth, supercharger tests are okay.
I need to invest some time in the supercharger there are plenty threads about it.

Maybe you have some links/hints for us?

Thanks in advance for your time!

Your link doesn't work.

For Getaway help such as the Superchargers, the Getaway Club thread is a good resource: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/getaway-club-dispatch-run-a-make-on-license-plate-kingpin/page/197#post-5192768

Also, always a good idea to put your location in your profile, or at least let us know where you are. Might be someone local willing to help out.

I can't tell from your video...Are those the regular incandescent bulbs or did you install LED's?

These are regular bulbs, the whole game is as far as we know complete original except for the driver board.

The issue with the light was a common fault, but the rookie got it sorted One wire on the j115 was a bit coroded and had too much resistance, shortened the wire a bit and reseated it. The lights are working great, except for one strand, on the backbox the yellow/white, but i should find this too.

But with the supercharger, i could need some help, it seems coil nr 3 isnt working properly, the supercharger dont change speed if i disconnect it. how can i test it? I had different voltages on the disconnected connector directly before the coils between ~4 - ~10V, how much voltage should i have and should they not all be the same? All Optos are working. Tested it in the switch test, simply with a paper.
