Re: WAY OT : Well Water Issues

I had this problem a few years ago with an electric water tank. I turned up the temperature of the tank to maximum and within about two days the problem was solved permanently. After that I returned the temperature to normal.

Re: Flight 2000 Shop Log

Some parts arrived today, looking forward to making this machine tournament-ready. Still missing: NVRAM chip, backglass lift channel, head lock.

Re: Flight 2000 Shop Log

The problem with the #2 target is cosmetic only and doesn't affect the gameplay. When the game resets the 1-5 target bank, it then automatically drops the targets already completed for the countdown. The #2 just doesn't drop in this case. The two balls in shooter lane problem occurred frequently at ...

Re: Flight 2000 Shop Log

After a busy weekend of paying attention to machines other than Flight 2000, I tried to power up the game and it refused to boot. This is an intermittent problem where the boot tones don't play at all. It had been starting up pretty reliably until this brief period of neglect... Then after a day of ...

Not true my friend! :) Though your machine may be missing a knocker I can't recall... also on freeplay I don't think it ever fires.

Re: Flight 2000 Shop Log

I spent a couple more hours on this project tonight, cleaning, adjusting, replacing bulbs and so on. ⋅  In the backbox, all of the GI lamps were fine but all of the feature lamps were blown. Bulbs replaced, all good. ⋅  On the playfield, several feature lamps were blown. Bulbs re...

Nice coil stops

Under the playfield, things aren't too bad, but someone really didn't grasp the concept of how these coil stops are supposed to be attached. Every one of them is missing lock nuts, has sheared off screw heads, or both. IMG_20190521_144821789.jpg IMG_20190521_144815411.jpg IMG_20190521_144931768.jpg

Mystery box

Any ideas what the heck this thing is? IMG_20190521_132720633.jpg When the game is powered on, the little window lights up as if something should be displayed there. But it is blank. IMG_20190521_145150430.jpg The gray cable comes from that box and is spliced into several conductors of the harness. ...

Job 2: Sticking flipper button

Sticky flipper buttons totally ruin the game, so that had to be addressed immediately. For this game the button is very simple, two cylindrical plastic pieces which slide together. Over time, they get dirty, and a bit rough, and don't move as freely as when new. But usually a bit of TLC will solve t...

Job 1: Power Plug

At least 50% of the games I encounter have a mutilated power plug and/or cord. In this case the cord itself appears to be undamaged but the plug has got to go.

Re: Flight 2000 Shop Log

The game basically works, and is in decent player condition. A decal has been applied over the bonus area to cover some wear. The rubber is clean, the drop targets are correct, one of the spinners looks like it came from a Gottlieb. There is a cracked plastic or two, the cabinet is a bit rough, and ...
