Re: Ottawa Pinball Show Contributor VIP

Order #117! Though I think I accidentally have two sizes of shirt on my order, the default kids’ small stayed selected after choosing the adult size.

Thanks Brent, I’ll do that for sure if I can’t find anybody local!

Anyone able to service boards in Ottawa?

Hi everybody,

I have a full set of boards that need servicing (and bulletproofing) from a Williams system 7 pin. Does anyone have any leads on someone in the Ottawa area that I can hire to do the board work?

Re: Matching parts to members (And you know that notion, just crossed my mind)

Well this is timely, I’ve been putting together a cart for an order from south of the border, and would rather shop Canadian if I can. I’ll compile my full list and PM, but there is one part I want to ask about - I need a coil stop or three for a system 7 drop target bank, I believe it’s #A-8037 bu...

Re: Where to find Triple Thick?

That is fantastic, thanks for sharing! I bet there are a lot of people jumping for joy at this news - even if the loss of traditionally screened repros might be a negative to some out there. I can see this leading to a lot of machines that have been collecting dust finally getting the restorations t...

Re: Help with repairing System 7 boards?

I think that’s the right approach, I don’t want to chase my tail or end up with damage because of dodgy PS components or something else preventable. Now that I have gotten it running again with Sylvain’s help, I would like to keep it that way :) I had stumbled across vids bulletproofing guide on pin...

Re: Help with repairing System 7 boards?

So I was just able to get it out of audit mode and into attract mode. The quick on off worked this time when I tried it - I don’t think I was doing it fast enough the first time. I guess that means that the 5101 is okay, or at least is working for now. I have a feeling that I may be on borrowed time...

Re: Help with repairing System 7 boards?

Apparently this is the kind of thing that the original owner was experiencing. Ever since he pulled it out (after a decade of storage) it would behave erratically but occasionally you could still get it to work for brief periods. I’ll test the 5101 voltage as outlined in the post and see if there’s ...

Re: Help with repairing System 7 boards?

The 3.7v on tp3 was measured with the coin door closed, and it tested 100mv open - shouldn’t that be an open circuit? Could that point to a bad chip?

Re: Help with repairing System 7 boards?

Thanks for your ongoing help! Okay, so I’m getting voltage into the board from the batteries I believe - again, I’m a newb. With the game off, I’m getting ~4.7v on test point 7 (CMOS Ram). TP 3 (memory protect) however is low according to the info I’ve found - supposed to be 5v, I’m reading 3.7v. An...

Re: Help with repairing System 7 boards?

Check the battery holder in case there was corrosion at some point, e.g. the 4.5V batteries voltage (3x1.5V) not always getting to the MPU memory - booting in Audit mode. Are the batteries still good? On power-up, the quick loud hum is normal on those Williams. -Sylvain. I’m glad the hum is normal,...

Help with repairing System 7 boards?

I’m having issues with my Cosmic Gunfight, and I’m hoping someone could help point me in the right direction. Sorry for the long post... It was non-playable when I bought it, but I gave the game a quick once over and made a few repairs that I could handle. In the end I was able to get it to boot, pa...

Re: Where to find Triple Thick?

For sure flatbed is a better solution, though with the proper equipment to minimize distortion you can get great results. You bring up a good point about copyright, you would definitely need to licence the artwork. My intention wasn’t to start any sort of commercial enterprise or sell anything, my ...

please tell us its not for cosmic gunfight ? :shock: Yes the idea was to spray my Cosmic Gunfight, but don’t worry - after some more research I’ve decided against it. The BG is in amazing shape, but has a few small areas of bubbling (though the art is completely intact except for a tiny amount of w...

Re: Where to find Triple Thick?

Thanks! I’ve checked out the Canadian Tire and Rona’s websites and they list it as discontinued/out of stock respectively, but it looks like there may be some stock at locations a bit further from me. I’m not far from Michaels though, I’ll check there first.

Does anyone know a source to get krylon at decent prices? I’ve found a sculpture supply place in the GTA that has good prices, but shipping more than doubles the cost. I’ll pay it if I have to, but was hoping there may be a better option. I would like to seal the BG on my new Cosmic Gunfight ASAP...

Thanks! The BG is in fantastic shape. There are a couple of rub spots around a few of the display windows, but that’s it. According to the previous owner It’s been HUO since 1987, and stored indoors for the last 10 years.

I’m looking for a super clean and straight set of chrome legs/levellers and really decent PF glass for my new cosmic gunfight. I’m in Ottawa - anyone local have any kicking around?
