Pinball Repair - Stittsville area

Post by BritPin »

Hi,

New to the board. We have a Bally Mystic that I am trying to get fixed. Have no clue what it could be. Any recommendations for someone that could check it out are greatly appreciated. Can be home daytime or evening to meet person.

Thanks

Hi,

I've had a PM from Sylvain who is hopefully able to come by tomorrow. But here is the info I got from my husband:

Something to do with the J18 pin connector.

Was all burned and the wires were loose and wouldn't stay in so it would cut out.

Lights would go, no flippers etc. He tried to replace it, but his crimps sucked. When he got it working it would cut out and fuses kept blowing.

Got the machine working for now at their place tonight however there are a few more connectors that need repinning, especially the usual J3 on the Solenoid Driver board - I would gladly do that later when we can match our busy schedules. Thanks

Thank you BritPin, I am glad I was able to help in the limited time I had.
I'll PM / phone your husband later to arrange another appointment for the other needed repairs.
All the Best!
