redstewpea: I mastered this game in the 80's..my favourite pinball game
Logan Bratton: Yours sounds different from mine. All the noises are higher pictched.
goodwilj: I'm not a basketball fan but this is the greatest pinball machine of all
time. I used to play this in college back in the '80s. Where are all of the
floor lights? The lights and sound effects were awesome. I loved the drop
targets and shoot hoop. Amazing game.
MrSilverballmania: @dj6927 if f4 blows you need to replace bridge rectifier br3 is shorting or
you have a short somewhere else you can check the br3 with a multi meter
check vr1 red varistor see if it is melted looking or damaged you can find
how to check bridge rectifiers on youtube by typing it in are any of the
plugs brown on j1 j2 j3 looks like they got hot this can be a problem to
dj6927: @MrSilverballmania Yah, I'm at a standstill wondering what's wrong and what
to look at next. I wish we hadn't taken it apart when we moved it.
MrSilverballmania: @dj6927 you have 12volts if the led is lite but check for 5 volts on mpu
board tp1 should have 4.9 to 5.2 volts if no voltage the mpu wont start to
boot if you have about 5 vols on mpu this is hard to fix it can be anything
let me know
dj6927: I got a tiny bit closer. Lights come on when I power up, but it blows F4
right away now. Still have to check voltage on the MPU. The light that used
to flash 7 times does not flash at all.
dj6927: The lights on the back are all lit and some on the playfield. I turned it
off, pulled the 3 plugs off, pushed them back on, powered it up and now no
lights. I wiggled the wires and the lights came back on, but there's a
crackling noise on the back of the fuse board and F4 blows. Another thing I
noticed is the LED on the top left board (MPU?) doesn't flash at all since
I put it back together. I wish I hadn't taken it apart when we moved. I
fear I've harmed it when I put it back together.
MrSilverballmania: @dj6927 still having problems with yours not working?
Michael Barnett: Sorry to say I was addicted to this game, I often got it to 30 game
credits. I used to love the cracking sound of a credit, even sweeter the
sound of 3 credits over about 5 seconds. This could be done by knocking
down the right hand set of 4 targets and 'dunking' the 5th, passing a half
million mark or some other bonus. He hasn't banged the machine once ,
useful if the ball is going miss the flippers. There is also a trick of
banging the machine just the right time, gets a lost ball back.
Plywood King: Memmmmmmories!
goodwilj: I used to be able to make a shot that would light up all of the touch
sensors on the left side "at once". It was so cool. I am dying for some
software company to make a digital virtual version of this game for the
Xbox360. Say a Pinball Classics Collection for Bally similar to the one
they have for Williams. I think I could die and go to heaven if they'd make
MrSilverballmania: @dj6927 did you take off the back box? if so check your power supply 3
plugs make sure there in all the way do you have any lites does the machine
do any thing except to look good? also check your main plug this might
sound silly but i seen bad plugs that got damage on a move next is there
any led lite on the mpu or see any flashes? thanx robert
MrSilverballmania: @dj6927 f4 is the fuse for flippers and coils 43 volt about 5 amp fuse
recheck your plugs onpower supply also triple check all plugs on all boards
are the plugs burnt on power supply? check j3 on driver board this supply 5
volts to mpu .you have 12 v if the led is lite j2 on power supply pin 6 and
7 is 110v ac to power supply make sure thats plugged in wright to does your
led when turned stays lite or flash 5 or 6 times and stay lite you wont get
the last flash until you get 43 v to mpu
dj6927: Beautiful machine. I have one too. The only problem is I moved mine for the
second time and now it doesn't work. I tried writing a letter on a repair
site, but it won't accept it. Do you know of a site to write to that could
MrSilverballmania: @dj6927 sorry on the last post it is test point 5 for 5 volts did you get
it working yet?
dj6927: The crackling was a wire on the power supply board. As I wiggled it, the
lights went on and off. The voltages are all correct on the supply board
now, but the light on the MPU still does not flash at all.
MrSilverballmania: @dj6927 let me know after you check this out where do you live dont have to
exact i live south east of columbus ohio i will have my majic jack going
here shortly i can call you and help this is better than play key board tag
trex70: loved that pinball...loooong time agooooo
Patrick Mersinger: I loved this machine when i was growing up. First machine i ever got over
1,000,000 points on. Thats alot in those days, now you get a million
practically when you put the quarter in. Bought one on Ebay and fixed it up
played it for a few years. Great memories indeed!!!
Patrick Mersinger: Aw go sit on your ass all day shooting people on the tv. I hate today's
games, great graphics but too damn violent.
thegreendragon193: It should be called "CLICK HERE TO WASTE 5 MINUTES OF YOUR LIFE!!"!
