    Whether I'm selling a pinball machine or a toaster I'm going to make sure that I have explained to the buyer every single possible issue I may have with it. I bought from two separate pinsiders on here I consider greasy slime balls . But the problem is I feel as though if I dime them out my chances of buying another pinball machine from an honest seller here are going to be slim because I'm going to look like a problem. So I understand how you feel. All I can say is I have learned my lesson and next time I go and purchase a pinball machine I am going to inspect the entire machine from the foot to the Head. It makes no sense to buy a machine that you can't see or feel I'm only taking somebody else's word regardless of their hundred percent feedback. Believe me they're getting 100% feedback because they probably fear the same thing I do and that's repercussions from the other members and looking like a complainer and hurting your chances of getting another machine. I had to drive 300 miles and spend $350 to pick up a machine that I brought home and found out the left flipper didn't work. It worked when I tested it there but then when I brought it home it didn't work. I got the bulshit sometimes when you move a pinball machine wires jiggle around answer. Anyway good luck to you and hopefully you learn a lesson like I did and many others on here that are afraid to speak up

    I feel your pain. This happened to me twice.
    Met two nice sellers here with good reps.
    Rented a van and drove 3 hours for each.
    I felt as though the pins did not need an extra long exam and testing because the sellers mentioned pinside, had a good rep here, clearly knew about pins because they both owned over a dozen pins each and had pinball parts filed to the ceiling. How could I go wrong i was paying market value and expected a market value product. I was wrong.
    Here I learned.
    Unless you buy new from factory or a reputable experienced dealer with lifetime support, expect problems with your machine that you'll have to fox yourself and always ALWAYS RUN ALL TESTS, CHECK ALL COMPONANTS AND SMELL FOR MOLD BEFORE YOU BUY!!
    That said... I'd send a message to seller and tell him to return 500 bucks off or you'll dump it on his front lawn with a bill or a subpoena. His choice.

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    Lol. How do you know he didn't already try this and was told to pound sand and that's why he started this BS thread. Cause I'm going to give you $500? Right
    If you have a problem with someone contact them directly before starting a I'm not happy with my purchase thread

    Perhaps the if the seller has the balls to sell junk why not have the balls to start a" sucker born every minute thread?" Lol ! Let's put it this way. I agree about contacting the seller first and wrong if I assumed he did, but I do appreciate others sharing their experiences honestly without fear of getting ganged up against by garage pinball quacks.
    Good luck OP there is no prize being Mr. Nice guy. Business is business
