There are a bunch of connectors coming off the playfield some square white ones and some off white / tan rectangular ones, re-pin them. I have people calling me on a weekly basis asking about how to fix gremlins in there Gameplan machines and the first thing I ask is, did your repin the connectors? No? call me back when your done,  seven times out of 10 the problems have gone away. It is tedious, boring, and not fun but it will save you a lot of time.

Re-pin the connectors between the head and the body of the machine. It is amazing what gremlins these connectors can release. I chased issues on mine like you are doing and after repining the connectors the machine has been solid for over a year.

If the glass  is in good shape leave it alone. I tried coating a sharpshooter and a Captain hook backglass and both pealed. The Capt hook ink came off in large sections so I would be careful. The BG's were inside machines in a climate controlled gameroom.

I have a few boards running in my msachines from Jim, He is a great guy and provides outstanding service. I have one board in a Family fun and another in a Super nova.

Couple questions for you, does the third flipper assembly look the same as the bottom two flippers?
Send me the coil number that he plunger goes into for the drop target assembly.
Did you ohm out the diode on the coil? and send me the number off the coil.

Hi All,

I don't know if I would want to go any stronger of a flipper than the original GP coil, they are pretty beefy. The majority of machines I buy whether it be for my collection or for a parts machine have the snookers beat out of a lot of the playfield components, from the post in front of the center targets being bent, the center target being broken, to shattered plastics.

My thoughts on the jiggling harness would be that the connector or pins to that harness either got acid on them or there is a cold solder joint. Rebuild the connector and polish the pins and if needed replace the pin header.
 On the fuse blowing it sounds like one of solenoids is shorting, you are going to have to ohm them out to see which one is bad.
12  General / Tech Corner / Re: MPU-1 and MPU-2 on: October 25, 2011, 11:17:53 AM
That is tough, I like both. I would probably get the Coney up and running and then find an MPU for the startrip. Maybe if we get enought people together we can get Jim to make another run of his MPU boards. I am up for ten, yes I said Ten  grin

14  General / Tech Corner / Connectors, connectors, connectors!!!!!!!!!!! on: October 15, 2011, 10:43:36 AM
A couple of weeks ago I started setting up my Super nova. After getting the MPU set up and running I was getting all sorts of funky problems from display issues, sound issues, solenoid issues, lamp issues. I took the connectors apart when I first set the machine up and did the usual small stone to clean the female connectors and dremmel wire brush to the male pins. After the cleaning I rinse out the connectors with alcohol and add a small amount of lube to the female pins. So I start the machine up and start with all the above issues. I figered I cleaned the connectors well so that is not the issue, Wrong!!!!!! After replacing all he driver boards, mpu, and even the sound board things would change but not get better. I even spent hours replacing lamps and tracing wires etc, etc. With the machine on I went to push a connector on the ldu and I noticed lamps that were out were now on. I had hit the wiring harnesses where the head meets the body. I ended up rebuilding all the connectors between the head and body and now no problems and the game plays flawless. The wires where the pins are crimped onto them had become fatigued and some had actually broke and were held together by the sheathing.

Hi Mikael,

Yes you can use the mpu 2 from the Coney Island in the Startrip but you can not use an MPU 1 in a standard machine. The same goes for the lamp driver board the LDU 1 can be used in all the cocktail machines but not in the standard pins.
 You will need to change out the game roms though, Marco specialties has the replacement roms or someone on the board may be able to burn them for you.
