Re: Gottlieb Countdown shop log

This thread has turned into more of a shop log than a single issue but I don't see how to change the title. Anyway today I got fed up with the sticking right flipper and decided to figure out what's going on. It was pretty obvious, though I couldn't get a good photo. Here's what a flipper EOS assemb...

SOLD: Flight 2000 backglass

It's in very poor condition, see photos here. Packaged in a nice box from CPR. Does not include trim pieces.

If nobody wants, it will soon go into the garbage.

Re: Flight 2000 Shop Log

I took advantage of the nice weather again today, to replace the rectifier board. The original is badly damaged, hacked, bypassed, etc. First, remove the entire power assembly from the cabinet. It's much easier to work on a bench, and all of the soldering can be performed outdoors. start.jpg After s...

Re: Gottlieb Countdown score displays not working

I finally found a suitable piece of scrap metal to make a pin extraction tool. It was excess trimmed from a pop bumper lamp socket with flat leads like this: https://www.pinballlife.com/mm5/graphics/00000001/Lamp%20Socket%20Pop%20Bumper%2024-8776.jpg I saved that little scrap for years thinking it m...

Re: Gottlieb Countdown score displays not working

There is another problem with this game. Two of the controlled lamps are not correct. Apparently when it was on location at North Star, they used a Rottendog driver which required the change, then they forgot to change it back. Two of the wires connected to the driver board have to be swapped. count...

Re: Gottlieb Countdown score displays not working

Ok but why would those chips fail? Is there a way to test the integrity of the score glass? There is no visible damage. One page I read suggested the resistor could fail but still test ok in circuit, so I guess it would make sense to replace that too.

Re: Gottlieb Countdown score displays not working

Huge thanks to Sylvain for checking the health of the power supply and giving it a little tune up. :) Sadly it didn't affect the symptoms. So I returned to pinrepair, pinwiki, etc. looking for some explanation. But I shouldn't always just trust what is written... finally I tested with each score dis...

Re: Flight 2000 Shop Log

It's been a while since the last post about this project. I never was good at keeping up with a "blog". For a few months Flight 2000 gathered dust after my work area got demolished. But recently Craig brought two more games, and so it became necessary to get organized properly once again. ...

Don't worry purist, that can be reverted in original status in 10 minutes ;)

I like it! Factory ball guides are too low and the ball jumps over easily.

Re: Prices, thoughts on Black Knight 2000?

I think it's a fantastic game, one of the best system 11, with amazing sounds and music. Some people complain that it's all right flipper, and maybe that's true for a tournament. But at home on free play, I really learned to enjoy the lower playfield as well, mastering the loop shot for great satisf...
