Richard is no longer shipping physical dvd's. Instead, the purchaser will get links to download the videos in WMV (windows media viewer) format. WMV files can be played on most computers. Freeware programs can covert them to other formats, including creation of DVD's for stand-alone players that don't support direct play of the wmv format.
The locked position of the search wipers on OK games cannot be at position 1 as shown in the video. If you put the wipers there, you will get activation of the search index coil and possibly the sequence unit step up coil with certain positions in the six number green section. This can happen when the screen moves or is exposing the section.
The correct locked location for the search wipers on OK games is on/between positions 2 and 3. Doesn't matter where in that range as rivets at positions 2 and 3 aren't connected to anything. Typically the wiper contacts locked are between rivets.

Hi, my name is Richard Gerlitz
I have been repairing and restoring Bally Bingo Pinball's for over 20 years. In this time, I have repaired or restored over 1,500 games. Covering all models that Bally ever made from 1950 to 1962.
During that time I had seen just about everything that could wrong with these games. I have a thorough understanding of the theory of operation, lubrication and all adjustments. So out of the encouragement of many collectors, I have finally compiled all this knowledge into a set of downloadable WMV files to allow you to get your game running, and keep it running. Finally, an all in one Bingo Repair Guide!
High Quality Video Close-Ups!

This is a great series of videos and is a 'must see' for all those Bally Bingo addicts who want to own and be able to service and repair their machine. Richard explains everything clearly, succinctly and at length and of course, anything that's slightly complicated can be reviewed again and again until it makes sense.
Richard covers all of the various games and anyone with a modicum of intelligence will find this an extremely useful tool.
