1993 Williams Star Trek Next Generation - N/A

Check List When Buying A Pinball

Pinball

The game is mechanically and electrically working 100%. I did change the flipper buttons. I replaced the left flipper button board and the front trough board. I added the jam protector in the trough. The plug was frayed and exposed wire. This was replaced. Two new wingnuts added to secure the back box. All switches were cleared and all problems fixed. The main problem was a broken wire in the middle of a bundle as shown below.

The current price of $4,200 is as is unrestored but working.

If no one is interested in the game in this condition, I will restore. This will include:
* LEDs
* New plastics
* New Plastic protectors
* Cliffy protectors (Neutral zone and catapult)
* Ramp protectors
* Subway protectors
* New posts
* New rubbers
* New flipper assemblies
* New bumper assemblies
* Refurbished Driver board
* New fliptronics board
* Manual


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

This game DOES NOT come with a manual.

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.
