Quoted from golfingdad1:

Stupid question,
Did all original playfields have diamond plate ?

No, not all of them. Most yes. In my opinion, diamond plate is more vulnerable to the clear chipping.

Quoted from golfingdad1:

I don't think I have ever seen a diamond plate PF "clear" chip.
Now the diamond plate lifting is different .

Wow! You have been lucky. I would have said that a few years ago myself.

Our CPR playfield arrived today. Man it looks fantastic and we hope to be putting it in our machine real soon.
Has anyone retro fitted playfield slide assemblies? like this https://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=3161
I am hoping that they fit.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

I wouldn't!
They are an inch and a half off. That is the bolts the swing catch latches onto. Thus, not a perfect fit. Just stick with tilt up playfield for Addams.

Thank you very much!

That is for your "thing" lights under your display. You need to lift your playfield up and check the thing kick out coil. It is underneath the playfield right under your first photo.

Quoted from Chosen_S:

The lockout coil is working correctly now after I adjusted the bracket,
My problem now is the “thing” lights on the speaker panel aren’t lighting up correctly

The wire connection you have in your hand (last photo) is the connector for your thing lights. Try taking the electrical tape off and turning one end of the connector around reconnect and re tape. Should sort your issue out provided the thing light board is still standard and no one has messed around with the wires on the connector.

Good Luck!

Quoted from Brootull:

So the previous owner installed LED’s and some of the bulbs, particularly the lights on the vault, are always lit whether they are supposed to be on or not. It’s rather faint but they are on nonetheless. Anyone know the cause and is there a fix?

You will need Non ghosting LEDs to stop this. Sounds like the previous owner put in normal LEDs.

We prefer these ones in natural white for all our 90s BWs.


Can you post up a photo of the LEDs?

Quoted from mjenison:

Can't you also install a non-ghosting ROM instead?

I am not sure about that, we have never tried it. Maybe one of the other Pinsiders can help out with that question.

Quoted from Brootull:

I'll try to grab a few pictures tonight when I get home.

There are plenty of good people on Pinside that will come up with plenty of different lighting options for your TAF.

#3227 2 years ago
Quoted from Brootull:

Pretty sure they are not anti ghosting.

It is revision L-3. Should I be looking at another revision? Not just for the ghosting issue but in general?[quoted image]

I do not think that is a non ghost bulb. If you can get a non ghost bulb and try it you will see the difference straight away.

There are a few different versions of game roms. A switched on Pinsider a few years ago made a version that helped with ghosing issues. I am not sure if it worked or not. If you are not confident changing the game rom do not do it. I have bent legs a few times putting them in and taking them out.

Good luck!

Quoted from antinea:

I have a weird question: there's a TAF at my local bar, and the ramp's diverter coil makes a loud, dry snapping sound when it activates. Kind of like a knocker that's 100% treble, it's pretty hard to describe.
I finally bought an Addams today, and since I've an acquired taste for this sound, I'd like my machine to sound the same, but I have absolutely no idea how to achieve this.
Any clue?

That is the noise when the diverter hits the cabinet. I think you can adjust the diverter from underneath the playfield. I am not near our game at the moment to help out further.

Quoted from glpinball:

I have a pinsound card and the flippers snap but the audio doesn't synch anymore.

We removed the pinsound card as hardly any of the sounds are synched any more. We were quite dissapointed with it to be honest.
