Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

2 Answers

I bought a Star Galaxy Professional Pinball machine from Toys R Us about 2yrs. ago. The company is called Science Tech a trademark of Bowen Hill Ltd. Within about 3-4 mths after my purchase the ball quit reloading. All of the lights and action still work but the ball does not go back to the slot to shoot it? I can hear the ball rolling around inside when I tilt the machine sideways. Any advice on who might repair such a thing? I bought it on sale for about $300.00 so I was hoping for a reasonable repair fix. Thank You!

Hey, figured mine out, you have to take off the front right plastic molding, and the piece that creates the track, then inside there is the scoop Rednax was talking about. Mine wasn't loose, it was busted clean off at the plastic mount, so since that plastic shaft was hollow, I bought a metal dowel that fit tightly in the shaft and some loctite plastic glue and stuck it all back together and hoped for the best, since I don't know how to weld plastic. thats been about 2 weeks ago, and I do daycare and its still together so I'm calling it a successful fix. Those 2 parts don't come out easily though, they are a major pain in the rear to get out, but you just gotta yank and pull and pry to get them out. Its a much bigger hassle to get them all back in place!

I've got the same problem though i bought mine secondhand for 50 euro so i had no problem openinhg it up. There's a little scoop that lifts the ball from the gutter into position to be launched. This little scoop is not very well made end teands to get loose with wear. I've stuck some foam on mine and it works again (for now). Would you happen to have a (strategy) manual for it? It didn't come with mine..

    I'm having the exact same problem, but I don't see a little scoop in the gutter. Underneath, I see where there is a little lever that moves easily back and forth, which looks as if it keeps the ball from rolling back to the center of the gutter. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to get the ball all the way to the slot. It looks like it should approach just by gravity, since the gutter slants downward all the way towards the slot. Any suggestions?

    I'm having the same problem, did you get yours figured out? Any idea what the problem was? I saw that little paddle thing you are talking about, but I didn't see a scoop either, Any info would be awesome, thanks!

    Im having the same problems with getting the ball to eject to the plunger after the flippers miss the ball. I bought my machine from some people moving down the road for $ 20.00. I'm trying to figure out how to get to the area without breaking anything or messing any of the electronics up cause u have to know whick screws to remove and all and its looks kinda fragile underneath there. Im seeing a little arm that u can literally move back and forth underneath . By the way how many balls comes with this machine cause I wondering if it will hold 3 balls like the large pinball machines. Does anyone know what size ball these are? If anyone has all the original paperwork and manuals, I could sure use a copy of all of it, I have been trying to find it by Google and nothing comes about. Someone stated they thought it was manufactured by Science Tech a trademark of Bowen Hill LTD. I ve looked and did not find this pinball machine under that, I could only find it under Gadget King but U can not get anywhere with them or I have not anyways. If anyone can help me please email me at and please put in the subject line Star Galaxy Pinball Machine. Any and all help is appreciated Thanks Gregg
