      Help for a Dutch pinhead living in Thailand...

      Had a cry for help via my website for a Dutch guy living in Thailand who has a pin there. He had DMD issues and we went back and forth several times with emails with me suggesting what voltages to measure and how to rectify his problem.

      Cut a long story short - he was a bit lost technically and wasn't really able to repair it himself and couldn't find anyone there to touch it! How he wound up with it in Thailand I have no idea

      Anyway, in the end he decided to buy one of my WMS hi-voltage replacement boards which only takes a few minutes to install and with no soldering. Here is his email received tonight:

      "Dear Mike,

      happy new year
      I wanted to let you know that I have received the pcb today and installed it,,,,and it works perfectly

      thank you very much

      XXXX"
      (no - he isn't a Qld beer - name changed)

      It makes me very happy to know I have been able to get his machine up and running at minimal cost to him and so easily - sort of makes my efforts all worthwhile

      The board in question is here:

      Heya Mike, good story. It's great having people like you in this hobby. If there weren't replacement boards, I would have sold my non-working Hulk machine long ago and still be sinking my money into the local pub every weekend. On the other side of the coin, I have ten pinball machines and still want more.

      Cheers!
      Adam.

      P.s. did the guy pay via PayPal? Haha
