Game Service & Repair

 

03/07/2022: PLEASE NOTE: Until further notice we will not be taking on any additional service/repair work due to our current busy in-shop workload.

This includes on-site, and in-shop, service/repair work. Due to some major projects we are currently working on in our shop, our schedule is just too busy at the present time to accomodate any additional work.

We regret that we are unable to help at the current time. If you are not able to find help from another local source, feel free to check back with us periodically to see when our status changes.

Thank you!

Circuit Board Repair:
We do some repairs on circuit boards in games that we service for local customers, but we do not do any "stand-alone" circuit board repairs. This means if you have a circuit board from your game that you want to send or bring in to us for "stand-alone" repair (ie: board repair without the game present), we will not be able to help you.

If you have a circuit board that you want to "send out for repair", we would recommend you contact any of the following repair shops listed below, who may be able to help.

The following is a list of repair shops around the U.S. that specialize in pinball machine circuit board repair.
Some shops specialize in certain types/brands of games, as noted below. Shops listed below are not affiliated with us (Action Pinball) and we are not responsible for your particular dealings with any shop below, whether good or bad. We do not endorse any particular shop listed below- this listing is simply provided as a helpful reference to those seeking circuit board repair help. You can likely find some others in an internet search as well.

Service Outside Our Area: For Out-of-Town And Out-of-State Customers
We do not service any games outside our local area, but the info below may help you to find the help you need- whether "doing it yourself" or looking for a repair person or company to service your game.

Online Repair Guides:
Some "do it yourself" pinball repair info can be found on the internet, including:
www.pinrepair.com, www.homepinballrepair.com, and www.pinwiki.com

Finding a Pinball Repair Person or Company:
If you're looking for someone to help service your game "in person", and you're not in our local area, there are a few places you can start looking. Regardless of where you look or who you find, there are some important aspects to consider about who you hire to service your game:
  • Experience: There are good mechanics, and there are lousy mechanics. Ask the repair person if they are experienced and/or qualified to work on the particular type of game you have. Many larger coin-op "distributors" usually only deal in the later-model "high-tech" games, and may not have any knowledge or experience with older mechanical or early solid-state type games made decades ago. On the other hand, some companies or individuals my only be skilled in older mechanical games and may not know anything about electronic (solid-state) pinball machines (made after 1976). Or some may only work on certain types or brands of machines. So be sure to ask if the help you will be paying for is qualified to do proper work on your particular type of game, before you commit to scheduling a repair call or appointment. No point in paying good money if you aren't getting good work.

  • Service Rate: A lot of people think that if they hire an expensive repair person, he will do the job quickly, properly, and be qualified to fix the game they have. This is rarely the truth. It's a good idea to ask what the service rate is, but also ask about experience with the type of game you have. Labor & service rates vary from company to company and do not always reflect the actual experience, or quality, of the work that the person you hire is going to do on your game.

    A cheap technician that is inexperienced may take 5 hours to fix a flipper. A more expensive technician may be qualified to do the job in a half hour, so the hourly service rate may not always reflect the kind of work you will get (or what the final bill will be). A cheaper repairman may end up costing more when all is said and done. Be sure to ask!
Sources for finding a repair shop or person in your area:

  • Local Phone Directory: Check your local hardcopy or online "yellow pages" phone directory for pinball repair persons or shops. Most of these are listed under sections such as "Amusement Devices" or "Pinball". Before enlisting the help of a pinball company or repair person, we strongly advise asking if they, or their technician, are experienced with the kind of game you have.

  • Yahoo! Yellow Pages: An online version of "yellow pages" phone directories for the entire country. Go to: yp.yahoo.com

  • Mr. Pinball "Collector Register": The Mr. Pinball Collector Register is an online collection of pinball owners, hobbiests, collectors, repair persons, and other enthusiasts and includes listings of thousands of people & companies not only in the U.S., but world wide. You can search the listing for persons in or near your area. The Register is located online at: www.xmission.com/~daina/tpcr/index.html
