PINBALL TECH : TWILIGHT ZONE RIGHT UPPER FLIPPER FLASHER LOCKED ON : VIDEO REPAIR
While playing my Twilight Zone pinball machine the other day, I noticed some smoke starting to come from the playfield. I quickly turned off the machine and removed the glass. First thing I noticed was that the plastic right above the right upper flipper looked melted. Looking more closely at that area, I was able to see a burn mark in the plastic and figured a bulb had locked on underneath causing the damage.
I removed the plastic and could see the bulb actually touching the plastic after looking more closely. I looked online and could not find a replacement plastic, so I figured that making one is the only option.
I also figured out the flasher is triggered by an 8 driver board in the back box of the game. I removed the ribbon cable, re-seated it and everything started working again.
