Default TMNT Pinball - Scoring LED board slid downward...

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to the forum. I've got a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pin that I love. I recently turned it back on, after about a year in storage, and it works great. But, I noticed that the scoring LED had sort of slid down to where it exposes some of the circuitry behind it, and is no longer flush with the viewing window. I've attached photos as well.

I'm not sure how to fix this. I tried my pin keys on the lock above the back glass, but they didn't work. Is there another way I can access the LED to adjust its placement? It may not seem like a big deal, but it'll drive me nuts every time I play.

I have a pinball shop right up the street, but they refuse to service any pins they didn't sell. So, any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!
-matt

You have to unlock the back glass to get access to the boards. Did you ever have the back glass off? The key might be on a hook on the coin door or just inside the machine. You need to get in there to change the batteries also.

Thanks for the reply!

If there doesn't happen to be a key on the inside of the coin door, am I just out of luck?

You can lift up and support the playfield and see if the key is inside the cabinet. Or drill out the lock and replace.
