Whether you are restoring your solid state 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 root cause of your 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 solid state pinball motherboards and power supplies at the surface component level. Our futureproofing repairs include cold solder joint repairs, removing/replacing batteries that could corrode your mainboard, switch stack and relay cleanings, and protective wax coatings on your playfield, and much more.
