PINBALL MACHINE MAINTENANCE
If you have an electro-mechanical pinball or other electro-mechanical game from the 1950s to
the late 1970s, you quickly learn that it frequently needs some minor adjustment to keep
everything operating properly.
While most people are more than willing to try to fix a mechanical game, thery are unwilling to
tinker with an electrical devise without some guidance from a good reference. The book
Pinball Machine Maintenance by Henk De Jager provides the kind of information
many collectors want.
This 195 page spiral bound paperback focuses on pinball machines that were manufactured by
Gottlieb, Williams and Bally from 1960 to 1977. It is written for the lay person (little knowledge
of electronics is required). It provides many tips and hints and provides step-by-step repair and
replacement of components.
It contains clear explanations with many schedules and illustrations. There are sections on
counters, switching units, relay circuits, and lighting circuits, as well as playfield maintenance
and coin mechanisms. Each of these sections are individually discussed for the different kinds of
pinballs made by Bally, Gottlieb and Williams. It is, therefore, tailored to provide you
information for the specific model of pinball that you own.
For years pinball collectors would call and ask where they could get a repair guide similar to the
ones that were available for slot machines and jukeboxes. Jukebox collectors were especially
fortunate because they had a specific manual for each model of jukebox made. While pinball
collectors don't have the convenience that jukebox collectors have, this new book should provide
most of the information needed to troubleshoot your machine.
This hardback book is out of print.
