Electromechanical Pinball Repairs in Alberta
Videogame Repairs provides electromechanical pinball repairs and restoration to the Edmonton area and all of Alberta. We provide a pickup and delivery service throughout Alberta if you are unable to bring your machine to us.
Whether you are restoring your electromechanical pinball that has been in your family for years or you are new to the pinball scene, getting your pinball in tip top shape is always worth it! At videogamerepairs.ca we treat every pinball like its our own. When we repair your pinball, we drill down below the surface to uncover the true causes of the problems. Our work include extensive futureproofing to ensure a lasting repair. Patchwork repairs, typically done on site, have a high failure rate compared to a repair done in our shop as we have many more tools at our disposal.
We repair all electromechanical pinballs at the component level. Our futureproofing repairs include cracking cold solder joints, cleaning switch stacks and relays, laying down a protective wax coating on your playfield, and much more.

SYMPTOM: You've coined up, hit the start button but your game is confused and won't kick out the ball to commence play. You may also see your score reels trying to reset but they get stuck. Electromechanical pinballs require all the switches and relays to fire at the appropriate times to function properly. If a few switches are out of sync, your game won't play properly.
SERVICE: Game tuning & repairs
ROUGH PRICE: $1000+
SYMPTOM: There's a lot of travel in your solenoids before the flipper actually fires. Your flippers don't have that same oomph they used to. Or maybe they are stuck in a locked on position. Pop bumpers or slings also lack their former power.
SERVICE: Flipper and pop bumper rebuilds
ROUGH PRICE: $400
What to Expect
PICKUP DROP/OFF SERVICE
Pinball repairs must be brought back to our shop for a proper lasting repair. For a safe transfer of your pinball, we offer a flat rate of $190 for both your pick up and drop off (within the Anthony Henday ring road). Site calls are only offered for machines that have been rebuilt through our shop previously.
Due to the design and age of electro-mechanical pinball machines, it is very difficult to predict the amount of time required to fix the problems discovered within. Because of this, repair rates for labour can range a LOT.
There are hundreds of individual switches and connections inside EM pinballs. Repairing or cleaning the source of a particular problem may fix that issue but other issues are likely to surface shortly thereafter. Our repairs go below the surface to ensure a lasting repair.
