Bring in your electronic pinball machine (made after 1977) for full service known as a complete "Shop Out". By Shop Out, we mean everything works, preventive maintenance is done and worn parts are replaced. We repair CPU, Driver, Display, Auxillary and Power Supply printed circuit boards down to the component level. Some boards with Battery Leaks, Burned Parts/Traces, Over Voltage or Old Age Obsolete conditions may need to be replaced as a part with added cost to you. We repair all electronic and mechanical assemblies, on and under the playfield, that can be repaired. If a mechanism is not reparable we search to find it. Some mechanisms are unavailable, we weld, braze, rivet and sometimes manufacture old parts back into shape. If the part just can't be found or fixed, we will call with the bad news. Non repairable machines are charged only the minimum shop charge of $170 plus any pickup and delivery charges (gas and sore backs). So far we have had NO, non repairable pinball events due to our efforts. All machines must be complete, no major missing parts.
The playfield top is disassembled, cleaned and waxed, and put back together with new light bulbs and rubber rings. Everything gets fixed that can be fixed. We make it look as close to new as possible without buying all new parts. You can opt to have new ramps, plastics, targets and toys replaced, if they can be found, if you pay for them. Cabinet leg corner brackets are repaired. We will glue and brace the cabinet if it is loose on the corners. We blow out and vacuum everything. You get new instruction cards and pricing cards.
We do NOT paint cabinets! We will touch-up a playfield with paint missing if requested. We can touch-up small paint issues on backglass if requested. The cabinet patina will be protected. Don't ever paint your cabinet.
We charge $900, plus extras mentioned above, plus tax for this service. A deposit may be required. Parts are not included and are taxable. Big cost items such as glass, destroyed/missing plastics, major assemblies or anything we determine as too expensive will require us to call you and get approval. Most jobs take weeks to accomplish. No rush jobs please. If a machine is, in our opinion, in a trashed out state of disrepair, we will insist on an up-charge or decline the job altogether. Certain pinball machines are also known to be difficult to work on and will incur an up-charge. You will be informed before we start work. Average final cost of this service is $1000 to $1800, plus tax.
We pick up machines for repair within 50 miles of our shop. Picking up the game is $80. Bringing it back is $80. We can NOT do stairs. We have a truck with a lift and various dollies. If your home entryway is flat or less than 5 inches (one step) we can help you. If the game is upstairs you must get it downstairs to your garage or driveway. This business is a Mom and Pop, we are in our mid 60's now. We no longer carry games by hand.
