1993 Data East Last Action Hero - not available

Check List When Buying A Pinball

Pinball

I picked up this really nice looking Last Action Hero. This game (not this exact one of course) was the third pinball I bought myself. (My first was Judge Dredd. I then got an Addams Family. I then got Last Action Hero. I then traded Addams Family for a Star Trek Next Generation.)

Summary of what IS NOT working:

1. Sound is reseting: "I'll be back.... I'll be back.... I'll... I'll...I'll be back." I traced this to a very bad CN1 connector on the power supply. I pulled out and reseated. It worked for several days. Then it stopped. Probably from all the vibration of the shaker motor and game play. This connector will need to be replaced, The 5 volt test point is registering 4.9 volts.

When I bought the game, the game said "Open the Door" and the Easy Trough Clear did not work.

"Open the Door" means that the batteries need to be changed and hopefully did not corrode onto the board. I unsoldered the battery holder and added a remote battery holder. Thankfully there was no corrosion on the board.

Coil 1 Lock out coil was not working since the wire under the play field was cut most likely due to getting stuck between the front of the game and the play field. I added wire and wire tied it so it would not get caught when closing the game.

Started a game. The sound was not working and the flippers did not work.

I worked on the flippers first. The EOS switch was corroded. I sanded both sides and the flippers worked. On these games, if the EOS is open, or broken, the flipper will not work.

The sound is not working properly. I will look at that next. I changed out the ribbon cable and it worked for a few seconds. Then cut out and in specific places came back. I hope no corrosion on the board. I will have to keep looking. I had a spare sound board. That did not solve the problem.

When playing the game, the back VUK would sometimes work and then not work. When I lifted the play field, the wire was disconnected but sometimes touching. I will solder back the wire. The switch was not correct either. I placed the correct switch in.

The left drop targets are not going back up. The coil tries. I thought it was working. So I will have to look at this as well. Looks like the coil is weak. I replaaced it with the correct coil, 23-800 and it works.

I fixed all the lights. A few needed new diodes.

I included the Allen Wrench to take down and put up the head.

The pictures have been taken with the glass off to get a better picture.

This game DOES NOT come with a manual. (I don't have one yet.)

Virginia Sales Tax

Virginia sales tax is currently 6.0%. Sales tax for in-state orders applies to machines and parts. It does not apply to the delivery or repair services.

Warranty

As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.

Reasons You Should Let Us Deliver Your Pinball (or Another Machine)

  1. We will NOT provide a warranty for the machine since we cannot be assured that a problem did not happen when you transported the machine. (As of August 1, 2014, we will no longer provide a warranty with our pinballs unless you purchase a separate warranty from us. A 1 year warranty is $500 or pay as you go if you even need it. If you buy it directly from us and take it home yourself, you will be inspecting it to ensure it works. If we deliver, we will ensure that it works 100% when delivered.)
  2. We take responsibility for any damage that may occur during the delivery process.
  3. We professionally set up the machine, connect all the connectors, attach the legs, head, etc. and ensure that the pinball works properly. If anything is out of adjustment due to moving the machine, we can fix it in a few minutes as compared to having to come to your house later and charging you a trip fee and repair charge.
  4. If anything major is out of adjustment, we can order parts and repair. This hardly ever happens but it could and you and the machine are protected.

Delivery Options

We are currently set up for local delivery only within the Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, and North-Eastern West Virginia area. If you are interested in shipping the pinball machine, we will contact a shipper. You will pay all crating and postage costs.

If you would like us to deliver and set up within 50 miles of Purcellville, the charge is $300; within 100 miles $475. The delivery charge includes delivery to a first floor or basement level if walk-out.

We will not sell you a game/deliver the game if the only entrance to your basement is an inside the house staircase. They are too narrow. Plus we have to ensure we don't mess up carpet or wood. It just isn't worth it.

You may also come and pick up the machine from our location.
