EM diagnosing the easy way
« on: June 29, 2015, 10:25:25 PM »
From time to time I have had an intermittant problem with some of my em machines which required the ball in play while observing what was going on in the cab and backbox.
Quite difficult at times when the playfield is up and your trying to see whats going on in the cabinet.
Found the best way around this is to sit the PF next to cab and connect up.

Fortunately most EM,s allow you to connect this way.

Ha ha! Yes! Been there... but my solution wasn't nearly as good as yours.
Mine was to place some timber between PF and cabinet front and peer under using a torch
