Hi all. Have had a Bally transporter for 15 ish years. Never been a problem in that time but recently. Has a mind of its own. Pop bumpers bang away on there own score jumps and game sounds and speech seem to not catch up at certain times. Also keep getting pinball missing and game just stop !!
Have tinkered with pinballs for years but mainly prefer ems and this has me beat !! Any help much appreciated !

I have this machine and am happy to help if I can.

Has anything changed ? Have you swapped something out ? Has it been in a damp environment ? Have you moved it ? Have you folded the backbox down ?

These games tend to behave until something changes - movement/ battery corrosion/ metal corrosion/ solder splat drops and shorts something/ mechanical part works loose and shorts something

@pinballmania is the gospel on System 11s

If nothing has changed, I would start by reseating connectors and checking voltages on the touching points

Hi. It has been moved but only across gamesroom. Will check all connectors in week and many thanks for help.
