Quoted from bitpatrol:
It's good to know it's not unique to the remakes, but I wish there was a better solution other than referring people to a qualified technician. I want something that I can keep and work on for years to come, and thought I had found that in the remakes. The good news is my attention is on my TNA which is all about being modular, but still would be into the remakes if there was not this flaw in the design. I'm not worried about the PCB or Pics as they pop right in, but it's just a nagging, unnecessary concern. I tried hard to be a remake collector.
If you are going to be a pinball collector, you will need to know qualified techs. Bottom line. With originals, the most common board that needs rebuilding are the power driver boards. Fortunately, lots of folks are skilled at refurbishing various Power Driver boards. Last year, I had to rebuild my GNR and AFM power driver boards. Cost was low, since a collector friend offered to do it for me. $70 each IIRC? If you have a pro do it, could cost $200?
Even though these LED boards are fairly new, I imagine they will be less of a maintenance issue than power boards. With AFMr as a guide, the solenoid/power boards have already been proven to be a headache to some owners. Haven't heard about any issues with LED boards. Do you currently have an issue?
