    SOLD Williams Bram Stoker's Dracula (BSD)

    Game is now sold. Time to cut this one loose from my collection, and for those that know me I don't sell games very often. Cabinet has ZERO fade which is uncommon, and besides the flipper button wear is in very good shape. I've gone through the whole game and replaced all the rubber rings...

    FS Pre-Order: Large Format 192x64 LED DMD

    Hey guys/gals! I've had a handful of my clients reach out to me regarding their large 192x64 DMD's failing. Where replacement plasma versions cost more than $500 USD and existing LCD/LED replacements sitting around $400 USD plus shipping and tax its not an easy pill to swallow. There are 4...

    FS New STTNG Delta Ramp w/ Decal $150 CDN

    As the title says, I have a brand new STTNG Delta ramp available with decal. It's not pre-loaded, which means it doesn't have a ramp flap or the wireform exit hardware but I have the correct rivets used by the factory and a press, so this is fairly easy to swap over from the existing ramp...

    #15 Twilight Zone w/ Lots of Issues

    The latest installment to my repair journey had me flexing my troubleshooting skills to the max. One of my clients contacted me months ago about issues with his TZ. Turns out his display was showing nothing but garbage after swapping in a ColorDMD. On top of that, the game was doing a bunch of...

    WPC Speaker Pop Eliminator!

    Hey pinball people! A few weeks ago Wong and I were chatting and he sent me a pinside thread that was discussing the really nasty sound all WPC games make from the speakers when the games are turned off. Mike said that all his WPC games do this but his Creech was particularly bad and it was...

    #13 STTNG Tie Back Mod *BEST WAY*

    Alright, for anyone that owns or has owned a STTNG you likely have heard about the dreaded Aux8 PCB "tie back" wire along with all of the issues this game can have surrounding it. For those that have not heard about this particular issue, the coles notes are this... STTNG has a LOT of parts...

    Just finished my DMD Clock

    Just finished assembling my RunDMD clock after procuring all the bits and pieces and thought I'd share. If anyone is interested getting their hands on one of these clocks and they don't feel like going through the trouble of doing it all themselves I'd be willing to make these, just drop me a...

    #12 F-14 Tomcat (round 2)

    Holy crap have I been busy. So busy that I've been slacking on posting here, mainly because I haven't had time to correctly document most of the repairs I've been doing out in the wild. This is a quick one that I thought would be good to share, as I wasn't able to find any posts anywhere about...

    *ORDERING CLOSED* Hey Guys/ Gal's. One of the benefits of working for an electronics distributor is access to certain parts. I'm about to bring in a bulk lot of the standard Cherry DB3 micro-switch that are used throughout pretty much all late model pinball playfields, and thought I'd find...

    #11 WPC DCS Sound PCB (Roadshow Revisited)

    In this installment I will be revisiting the exact same DCS sound PCB that I worked on last year. (which you can find here http://www.pinballrevolution.com/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=1040 ) As you may or may not remember, the previous repair dealt with a serious ground buzz issue in the amplifier...

    #10 Williams F-14 Tomcat No Speech

    Alright, so this one was interesting... This game came to me from a friend of a PB Rev member, and I had actually worked on this game in the past. I had to repair a small fire that broke out in the high voltage section a few years ago after being over fused by mistake. I will say it was an...

    #9 Rottendog WPC Driver Upgrade / Modification

    So I had a well known PB Rev member that started having issues with a couple of his Rottendog WPC driver boards. He had decided to install a pair of them in his TAF and WH20 for some "peace of mind", and they certainly did the trick. That was until he opted to install some ColorDMD's in each...

    #8 Classic Bally / Stern High-Voltage Section

    If anyone has a classic Bally or Stern title in their collection at any point, one of the easiest and most important things to check is the high-voltage section on the solenoid driver board for the correct voltage. (assuming your displays are working) The reason this is so important these days...

    #7 Stern Lord of the Rings

    So I'm supposed to be posting my repair adventures to this section but I have been slacking. Not due to lack of repairs, but more to do with the fact I keep forgetting to take pictures of said repairs along the way, and I feel posts without pics just plain suck! So I apologize to those...
