What the guy said up above but my first look would be a coil trigger switch That switch makes the coil kick usually a ball rest switch that gets beat up pretty good and why it stops working. If that sw doesn't make the ball just sits there until it goes through search mode. The switch matrix check would tell you. So it's a switch or coil that isn't completing the cycle. Test all coils and switches and see what you have or don't then if still empty it's logic I/o problem . Then as above a reset might or might not take care of it. If not then I would check the I/o chip on the board or the contacts on the board which can be a nightmare as well, checking wires and contacts can be a problem. I could go on and on but you get the pic

If the game can't find all the balls on start-up it will hunt by kicking all the coils. If you look at the ball trough under the deck you should be able to see all 4 balls. If any are missing then they are stuck somewhere on the playfield. I they are all in there then use the buttons on the front rood to access the switch matrix display and check the switches. Most of the time you will find a ball or balls stuck somewhere on the deck behind a broken rubber or in a hole where the coil wire may have broken off. Don't worry about the settings in service mode. If you read the instructions on the display, you can't screw it up. Worst case you can always do a reset to factory.

I need a manual for a Halex Galaxy Mission pinball machine. Does anyone out there have one in a pdf format that they could send me or share here?


Manuals for many pinball machines can be found at www.ipdb.org. Those for Gottlieb machines are copyright protected and must be purchased. I don't recognize the name of the machine that you quoted. Who is the manufacturer and please re-check the title name.

My whitewater pin keeps on blowing fuse F114. display read check fuses F114/F115. Changed 114 but keeps on blowing.


Pinball problems are commonly discussed on pinball forums. For your case go to http://pinballbash.com/forum/index.php?topic=2526.msg23570#msg23570 and look for a very long append from VisitorQ. He gives a nice detailed description of the possible causes.

I have a 1981 williams baracora pinball machine that will not start up when i press the credit button. However i can get the machine to cycle through its program mode.


This machine is based on the Williams System 7 MPU. There are schematics available online as well as debug guides. I don't know how comfortable you are with debugging electronics. If you can't do this on your own you can try to post a request for help on an active pinball forum like www.pinside.com or look for a local pinball repair person. You can either ask for a reference on the pinball forum or search for one on Craig's list.

Were do I find a manual?


Many pinball manuals are online at www.ipdb.org. Pinballs manufactured by Gottlieb have their copyrights strictly enforced. You will have to buy these online. There are several online pinball parts suppliers that have manuals. www.pbresource.com is a good place. Note that I have no affiliation with either website.

How can i get the rules for rolling stones pinball machine?


If you are looking for the instruction card that goes under the glass you can download it from Stern's website (www.sternpinball.com). You can also get software updates and the manual for the game. The newer manuals aren't the best quality but readable.

How do i fix my pinball machine it wont start when i push the start button a message on the keeps coming up saying pinball missing.


Make sure there is the proper number of balls in the trough. If so remove them and go to the test switches in the diagnostics menu. Test the trough switches one at a time.

My pinball machine has lights but no sound. What should i do?


I would start by pulling the cord out of the socket for a few seconds before replacing it. Sometimes pinball machines need a little reset and that should do the trick.
