Williams Pinball Board Repair Services
UPDATE 9/9/2003 - REPAIR SERVICES HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED DUE TO OTHER COMMITTMENTS.
Pinball Repair Services are offered on the the early Williams Solid State boards. We only service the listed Williams boards, no Gottlieb, Bally or later Williams Boards are serviced.
NOTE - I started repairing boards myself after having unfavorable experiences with most of the "major" board repair services. After wasting large sums of money on "repairs" that resulted in more problems than existed before I sent the boards, I decided to learn how to repair these boards myself. I started offering repair services a year after this so others wouldn't waste their money on bad repairs. However, I was overwhelmed with boards and the result was that I wasn't able to return boards in what the board owners considered a "timely" fashion. I returned all boards at my own expense to these owners. As a result of this, I will not accept any unsolicited board repairs. You must contact me first and I will let you know the time frame you can expect for your repair (averages about 4 to 6 weeks). You are not charged until your boards are completed.
I cannot recommend any other board repair services, so please don't ask.

We also provide ROM burning services. See our ROM burning page for more details! Mail Orders on ROMS are still welcome!
We accept System 3, 4, 6 and 7 boards for repair. Because of the expense and limited availability of some of the parts on these boards, especially the older System 3 and 4 boards, repair charges may flucuate.

- "Scanbe" sockets replacement is an additional $20.
- If your game requires new ROMs, the charge is $5 per ROM.
- Firepower MPU boards that require new game ROMs must be modified to use a "combo" ROM.
The charge is an additional $20 for the modification and new game ROM.
