In my fraternity house, we have a Mario pinball machine that we payed about 3k for. That thing breaks all the time and requires a lot of maintenance to keep running.

If you have the same one I use to have, I ordered all my parts to fix it from FleaBay. The biggest problem I kept having is the ball port at the top left corner kept breaking. After fixing it for the third time, I stuffed some paper in there so the ball would avoid it.

We have this one:



The problems we mainly have are with the flippers not working and the tilt sensor getting stuck because some people like to cheat. In the past 4 years, we have replaced the flippers 15 times. We usually get the solenoids from ebay, but we also have a pinball store nearby called Dr. Scotts. Dr. Scott will sometimes come and fix it if we could not fix it.

HAHA, that's the same one I had! I just sold it a few months back. I never had problems out of the flippers, or the tilt. I do imagine that yours sees a lot more action than mine.

Check out Suzo Happ for parts. That's where I get all my,parts for the pins at work. Also if you really want to you can remove the tilt plumb pretty easily. The. You can tilt the machine without triggering its tilt mode. Had to do that with our Corvette pinball at work cause something shorted on the tilt circuit and it kept tilting for no reason.

And anyone looking for info on any arcade game in future that may come across this can check out KLOV or the killer list of video games website. They have info on every arcade game ever produced, not to mention PDFs of the original manuals, artwork, etc.

The 1980's was the golden era of video games. One of my favorites was "California Games" by Epyx. Sometimes I wish that I still had a C64 just to play that game.
