Do I have a bad display? The top row started doing 666 this on me. Before I order a PinScore replacement, I was wondering if there was something else I should check? Wish they made that display in White LEDs but doesn’t look like it. Not sure I’ll love the RED.

I have some some other weird issues too:

1. The GHT bank isn’t resetting after drop

2. the three switches in the ball lock area behind the draw bridge aren’t registering. Goes into ball search mode to kick it out of there.

3. The A of WAR doesn’t ever register.

I was assuming lose wires initially but it sure seems like a lot went wrong quickly. Any thoughts?

I’m assuming you reseated the ribbon cable correct?

No, I haven't checked anything yet. The display just started doing this during a game. Turned the game off and back on and its been like this ever since. Is the ribbon a common problem? Thanks for the pointer, I'll check when I get home tonight.

Yes, they're generally problematic.

What I would do: turn game on so you can view the display. Open backbox, and wiggle the display's ribbon cable at both ends. See if you can get the problem to correct itself. Be careful when you're messing in the backbox with power on though.

It just may need to be reseated (pulled off/put on) a few times.

This is the first place to start.

thank you very much Blackbeard. That corrected the issue with the top row display. While I was in the there I made my RANSOM lights not green. The game came to me that way and its much nicer with white in there now. I also reseated the connectors for my drop target bank and ball lock switchboard and that solved both those issues too.

New Issue -
Looking closely at the display now, it seems like the top row is noticeably dimmer than the bottom row. Any thoughts on that? Are those high voltage lines like DMD use? Why would top be different than bottom though if its a power input issue?

It could be voltage issues although I think your hypothesis is correct in that the dimming would be uniform. How are the two large caps on the power supply board? Are they the old brown ones? Or have they been rebuilt? Test voltage on ps board at the test points. I believe there are 3 points.

Also, you may just need a new display ribbon cable.

Orrr your displays may be gassing out.

I put Rad decals on mine. I think they look great and we’re super easy to put on.

Hey all,
I'm in
Already have a nice original BK, so had to eventually pick up a BK2000.
this 1/2 restored example crossed my path.
will have to strip & rebuild the under bonnet stuff/service the boards & clean up the coin door.
just reading up from the previous pages on the fine adjustments to the top level so the ball flows spot on.
all the best.

Hi guys.
I got in a few weeks back, as can be read in the 'pinball horror pics' thread
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/pinball-horror-pics/page/43#post-5269888

I was wondering how many people have tried to remove their maylar on the bk2k. I really want to do it but heard system 11 can be bad. I have done it very succesfully on a Data East time machine, Jungle lord and high speed. Maybe more but cant remember. How did it go with others in here?

Don't do it. I tried 2 methods for removing mylar on a BK2K playfield many years ago (both heat and cold) and both lifted all the art. I don't know what it is about the adhesive they used on this particular title, but from my perspective it was not possible to do it without significant damage. I ended up buying a repro playfield set from Mirco and doing a swap, which turned out really really well. Much more effort, to be sure, but safe.

I removed the mylar on my BK2K slowly with the freeze spray method and did not remove any paint.

From my understanding, you are certainly in the minority with your results. My experience was vastly worse. LOL

Soooo, yeah. What I was afraid of. I might try a small piece. I'll get it up and running first. But, if possible I would love to take it off and put a playfieldprotector on it.

For reverence, I have had the best succes with the freeze spray. In my opinion the best method when done right.

The inserts on the upper playfield are a bit lifted, can I heat them up and push them down with the mylar still on top of it?
