Mr. Pinball Tip:

It is not unusual for an older game's on/off switch to wear out and break. You can take these apart and rebuild them, or just replace them. A good preventative measure is to use a power strip, so you don't have to use the switch at all. Some machines such as Stern's Orbitor 1 have a quadruple-throw switch that you will have a tough time replacing, and a power strip effectively solves that problem. Also, machines older than the late 60s didn't have on/off switches, so you need something like a power strip. I recommend a power strip with a lighted switch so you can tell if the strip is left on.
