This happened to me today. My town has only two locations with pinball- the one I knew about already has Whirlwind (dirty, but working) and Hook (broken).
So, naturally I was excited today to see a new location. In the picture I saw of it (I saw it in a real estate ad with a picture of the front of the building), it was a WCS. When I got there, it wasn't WCS; it was LW3(I guess it had been swapped out after the ad). I'm still cool with that- it's a game I haven't played, even if it isn't as highly regarded.
Put in 50 cents and pressed start. Nothing. Again. Nothing. 4 more times...nothing. It seemed like the button just wouldn't go in. As a last resort I hit the button really hard and finally the game started, though the button stayed pressed in for good. Awesome, the game started, I actually get to play!
Launch the ball and......non-working right flipper. Instant drain.
You know the worst part of a dead flipper? Ball save. It took me 5 balls to end this torture.
I contacted the op via email and said it was broken and that I'd be willing to buy it if for sale. It's in a location that gets zero use, so maybe there's a chance!
