I've just noticed that unlike seemingly every other pin I have, my Zacc Space Mission does not have a symmetric playfield support (i.e., when the bottom side of the playfield needs to be accessed). On my 70s Bally SSs, there is a nice little groove that the playfield can rest on where it leans at a low angle on the backbox. Now granted, there is a long set of 3 x 2 studs (I am presuming they are the size in metric) supports on the Space Mission upon which to support, but no groove - and it is not an easy glide to get it to those 3 x 2 studs as one side has a notch to go on top of, and the other side has a gap to over. I've had to lift it up with a single arm, and even though I am old weight lifter, it's still tough!

I have a hard time believing this is stock. It's like the configuration on either side would work (almost) if the other side were symmetric.

Now for the reason that preceded the post about the playfield supports.

I posted it at Tech - Early SS:

Is there a setting for HSTD memory? My Magic Castle, which has its battery replaced with a capacitor, can remember how many credits are on it but resets the HSTD to default anytime you turn the game off.

Need some help here Zaccaria owners. I have a Farfalla that I am continuing having issues with the sound board. Have been in contact with David Gersic (he was the only person that it seems that did board repairs). He recommend replacement of all the caps which I did, but still continue to have sound issues. Sent the board to him for repair, but he is having some personal family issues and has since sent the sound board back to me un-repaired. It appears he will no longer be doing board repairs, so here is my question.

Is there anyone here is the US that will take on any Zaccaria board repairs (sound, driver, CPU, etc.)? David did recommend contacting John's Jukes in British Columbia, but would rather deal with a reliable source here in the states.
Let me know......Mike

Okay guys, I am asking again is there a reliable repair source for Zaccaria pinball board(s) repairs here in the US? I can't believe there's not one due to the many machines collector's own. Your replys would be appreciated.

Johns Jukes is a legitimate repair place.

I would definitely contact them.

Making another shot here, anybody have a busted winged flipper I can have? Would like to measure one up to offer as 3D printed. Would highly prefer to base it on an original instead of one of the thingiverse files out there.

Hey all going to go pick up a Pinball Champ today. Only issue is that I have to remove the head to fit into my car. Can anyone tell me what I'll need for that? I've read about the folding mechanism with the knob on the side. Is the head attached with typical 9/16s long bolts?

#2410 2 days ago

There are 4 3/8” bolts inside the head.
You then pull the unlock knob (if it’s still there) below the head, on the side.
There are Phillips screws holding the hinges of the folding mechanism to the head. You can just unscrew those and the head will be loose.

The music on my Spooky went out completely. A couple weeks ago it was acting very strange and not playing correctly. Sound effects are still doing their thing.

Anyone have tips on what to check? Possible sound rom corrupted or chip rot?

#2412 1 day ago

If I recall Spooky had 2 sound boards - the main board and an add-on daughter board. Maybe check the connection/ribbon cable from main sound board to daughter sound board. Isn't there a button you can press on sound card to hear a test sample? good luck!

Comparing my Magic Castle and Spooky sound boards, it looks like since they have the daughter board on Spooky, they didn’t popular the red test button.

Also interesting that there’s speech/sounds in Magic Castle’s test that I have never heard in play. And some that’s in play but not test.

Maybe I’m overthinking this and I just need to re-cap it?

#2415 4 hours ago

I really don't think it has anything to do with your sound roms. T

Maybe try adjusting the 3 potentiometers for sound on the spooky sound board? There are 3 I see that handle different parts of the sound (probably pitch, effects, voice). They look like 3 wheels with a dial in the middle (slotted screwdriver if I recall can turn the dial). Just wiggle left and right and see if the sound changes, but revert the dial back to its initial position.

And with the game OFF, try to reseat the ribbon cables from 1B11181/1 (top board) to bottom sound board. then turn it on and see if that helps.
