Re: Pin-bot problems

I am a happy man for about two days so far, just because of a connector that was offering a little bit of resistance. Could that be possible? Serge

Re: Pin-bot problems

Could it be just a harness junction that can cause that kind of fault, because today I disconnect and reseated the connector but not all the way and so far it seem not to fail. It was passing all the test. Serge

Re: Pin-bot problems

When the 100k vortex skills shot is done there no coil activated that I think of except a sequence of flashing light that may not happen with the 20k or 5k skill shot. Changed the diode on the switch for precation but not better. Could the chips of the game be a problem (rom). The blanking and pia l...

Re: Stern will produce Whoa Nellie!

You guys didn't read the fine print. Power sufficient by solar panel and temperatureproof -40C to +50C. Colour change depending the weather, as weatherproof cabinet can stay in the rain and melon will grow in the playfield and many other options.

Re: Buccaneer Spin'n'Spot Scoring Issue

No luck! I try a 10 ohm and a 5.6 ohm because no 6 ohm available and still the same issue. I got the 1n4002 resistor and the 470uf 50v cap. It's not the end of the world but I like when the game work like it suppose too. I probably have to sit with few beers and think harder. If anybody have a Bucca...

The M relay located in the backbox activate your 100pts reel relay and your chime as well. You'll probably see the wire your talking about on one of the switchs. Check if it close properly. Serge
