safety strap

Can someone explain how to use the safety strap to hold an upright playfield?
The strap always ends up 8 inches too short and it feels it pulls in the wrong direction to stop an accidental rotation.

Re: Allentown Transport to and from available

When you go to Allentown say your going to pinball show. Do not say I sold machine or traded it. I'm just bringing it to the show for people to play on. Never ever tell USA boarder guard that your selling or trading. They normally will wave you through. Let's say you do bring it back, what's the pa...

Re: Playfield repair and clear coat

I am not an expert, but I thought you put the inserts first and then you clear the whole playfield. If you clear them separately, wouldn't that may make it harder to put the inserts back? That will also leave a small crack all around the inserts, which may give you the urge to clear on top of the wh...

It's a teaser, the pinball is not announced yet.
At least it's better than a cloud of smoke. ;)

At first I thought the Princess was an earthling taken prisoner but it says she's Martian.
Indeed she has pointy ears and antennas.... and a laser gun. :shoot

Re: Cybercid MPL 26 avril 2019

Can someone going to the meeting sell me a pair of Cointaker LEDs yellow light frosted dome wedge base?
Starburst sold me this brand last fall, but they don't carry them anymore.
I'd like the same brand because I'm only missing two and these LEDs are very visible above my LAH playfield.

Re: Question regarding Roms

Are we talking recent Stern with a USB stick or an older alpha-numeric or DMD like you own? For an older machine, the ROMs are complete and self-contained. The code runs from the ROMs, the programming is not copied to some other storage where it could be altered. So you can't lose anything in the ne...

Re: What did you do today in the hobby?

I finally got Arnold's crane and tar pit to work fully for the first time.
I also learned you cannot remove turns from a Gottlieb flipper coil because the big wire is buried deep underneath the thin wire. All I could achieve was 1 less turn.

Re: Question regarding Roms

If the new ROM forces a factory reset, I am pretty sure it would be the factory defaults programmed in the new ROMs.
The easy/normal/hard settings are just shortcuts to set multiple individual settings you can control.
Just take a note of your old settings and put them back after you upgrade the ROMs.

Re: TZ Flippers Died - Advice wanted

Bad connectors might increase resistance in the circuit and cause the voltage drop. No idea if that's your problem but it's easy to measure if it happens again.

Re: TZ Flippers Died - Advice wanted

If you replace a fuse without fixing the underlying problem, it might just blow instantly.
Did you check your new fuse was still good?

You said you were in switch test mode, did you try the coil test mode?

There was an Orbitor-1 at the Ottawa Pinball & Gameroom Show in 2017. Not sure if it was there again in 2018 since nobody could get in.
