  • Flippers not working on TZ???

    Well looks like my right flipper and little flipper on my TZ are stuffed. I'm hopeless at stuff like this so what do i do? Do i need to order parts or do i need a tech guy to come out? Should i replace all of the while i'm doing it?
    Love a good tune

    To fix this you are gonna need a sledgehammer and a temper.

    j/k
    ...maybe, but then again "maybe" covers a lot of things, like: maybe Michael Jackson really is LaToya in drag, or maybe if Dorothy clicks her heels 3 times and says "There's no place like home" while she is at home, she would telefrag herself..." - MadMikeAU

      hey CampKrusty, I had the same prob. Half way through a game last week my upper right flipper on my TZ stopped working. I had a look myself but felt quite intimidated when I saw all the wires and shit going on under the playfield. Rang a local guy and he came out on Sunday and fixed it in about 10 minutes. He thought it would be a coil but it wasn't - it was actually because something from some sort of part had broken - I hope this narrows it down for you He did say very simple though.
      Sorry I can't be of more help but he did say it was not worth worrying about the other flippers because generally they are very reliable.
      I just had my first game earlier since the repairs from yesterday and noticed the "magna flips" don't work now. I'm hoping maybe a wire came off when he was working on it yesterday??
      Man cannot live with just one pinball.

        Thanks for the reply! AMD put me onto someone who won't rip me. Gotta love the TZ! It took me about 12 games before i got the lost in the zone, but mines set on 3 ball. Nearly got to 1 billion on my last game.
        Love a good tune

          if you are in the Brisbane area and are still having trouble.. drop a line in this thread.. I have pretty limited time for repairs these days but I would be happy to look at it.. Will obviously cost part plus a serious challenge of pinball once it is fixed.

              Will be working on the Coast late November.. Pac fair to be exact.. Since I will be staying down there while working I should have afternoons/evenings free.

              Happy to come take a look.. Obviously I don't carry my entire workshop with me however I am happy to drop in.

              Send me a PM if this suits and I can forward my Mobile #.

              Paul.
