Re: Judge Dredd - flipper and speaker problems

The switch opto can cause that. Swap the boards and see if the problem moves. I know that system very well I have been working on those games since they were new. Don't waste your money on a coil. My friend left for the weekend but will ask him to try that next week, sounds like you know what you'r...

Re: Judge Dredd - flipper and speaker problems

Wow, thanks for all your responses! My friend came over today (yes, some people are still doing that, hehe) and he checked the voltage on the 4 flippers and they all showed around 46 (they're all 50v) EXCEPT for the left flipper with the issues, which only showed it working at 30v (when game was on)...

Judge Dredd - flipper and speaker problems

I recently purchased my first JUDGE DREDD machine. I love it overall but I had some basic issues which we fixed, and upgraded to color DMD, but two issues remain... 1) The left flipper was very weak when I got it. Tried to fix, but nothing helped so I just ordered a brand new "flipper kit"...

Re: Indiana Jones (Williams) - Pinsound issues

WOW. Even though the PINSOUND issues were fixed last week, the night before the Superbowl, I played another game on it and once again, after the ball went into the PATH OF ADVENTURE area and I used the left flipper to move it a little, the left flipper GAVE OUT again and now doesn't work anymore.

Re: Indiana Jones (Williams) - Pinsound issues

I have an awesome Williams INDIANA JONES but most recently the left flipper stopped working. It was fixed by changing a fuse inside, but the next day I noticed that there's NO SOUND when I play the game anymore. I'm NOT A TECHIE by any means, so I'm not sure what the problem is. I lowered the volum...

Re: Indiana Jones (Williams) - Pinsound issues

The first error looks like a connection problem at the connectors. The second error is telling you that switch did not change state in the last couple dozen games. It is likely the switch is stuck, or no longer works because a cable is broken. Thank you for the diagnosis, unfortunately I'm not a te...

Re: Indiana Jones (Williams) - Pinsound issues

Pinsound REPLACES your sound board. When you lower the volume to 0, all you are doing is switching the "sound set" that's on the usb key connected to the pinsound. You therefore have the original sounds and probably an alternative set or two. "changing a fuse": was probably on t...
