Pinball board repair service part of our daily life!
Pinball machine circuit board repairs at Pinball Heaven.
We love fixing stuff! Every day we get sent pinball machine pcb’s for repair by customers eager to get their pinball machines up and running again. Of course we offer an on site pinball machine repair service but some want to do it themselves and just post us parts to repair.
Many customers need help with pinball circuit board problems, we spend the time over the phone to discuss these issues and can advise which circuit board we need to be sent in order for us to repair it, then we test it in our test rig and advise customer if any action needs to be taken before re-installing their circuit board. Sometimes if there is a shorted solenoid coil or such like it can just damage the newly repaired PCB as soon as the power is switched back on! We can usually tell if this will happen when we see what is wrong with the board.
The most common pcb we get sent is the Williams WPC Power Driver PCB A-12697 which is a really really reliable circuit board but simply due to the massive numbers of these boards and associated games in circulation we do see them on a daily basis. Usually its either a reset when pressing the flipper buttons or a shorted solenoid/blown fuse but can be other issues like problems with lamps and of course the melted general illumination connectors J115/J120/J121 which require replacement.
We can repair most pinball machine pcb’s from 1988 to modern games so if you have any pinball machine problems then give us a call or send us an email!
