Just joined the club. Picked up a BK and a FP2 for 500 total. BK looks really nice but needs a BG. Virtually no ink left on it except a faint outline of the title.

#2055 35 days ago

Never actually played BK either, so hoping it is a good player's game.

Does anyone have a clue to what this wire is for? Orange/white, right where the head attaches. Nothing appears to be cut on any of the harnesses but it is stapled and looks as if it may have been factory.

To hold the wiring up at the top while the backbox is off during transport? So you don't have to dig the wires off of the bottom of the cabinet.
That's my guess.

It doesn't look like factory wiring to me.

#2062 33 days ago

Thomas’s
I searched for an answer to that question several years ago, and as Steve-o suggested, it was to hold the wiring harness in place. Gottlieb would use scrap pieces of wire to tie and hold up the harness. (I think this was covered in RGP group.)

Drove me nuts trying to figure out where the wire was supposed to go until I learned that fact.

Thank you! My main concern was something cut that was supposed to be in the harness. Seems that I am in the clear. I will be messing some more with both these system 7's to see if they boot.

It is... The E.M. games had it too.

#2065 32 days ago
Quoted from vec-tor:

It is... The E.M. games had it too.

I thought it was, mainly due to how it looked. It was stapled and that staple looked to have been in place a very long time.
So between this and a Firepower 2, I only got 1 set of legs. I will post a pic later, as I am curious which machine they belong to. I am not sure if both these game came with the same legs, but it seems that they changed right around this period if I am correct.

#2066 32 days ago

So should this have non ribbed legs like Firepower or the double ribbed legs like the system 11's?

#2067 31 days ago
Quoted from Tomass:

1980's Black Knight has regular non-ribbed legs.
The first game by Williams to have any "ribbing" to the legs was High Speed 1985.

Wow!Thats the worse bg ive ever seen man

Quoted from Tbpilot78:

Yeah, me too. Can't imagine how it got that bad.

#2070 31 days ago

Quick question. BK has three 23-750 coils (#6, #7 & #8), yet all of these coils in my BK are 23-850s.

The 23-750 coil seems to be "out-of-stock" almost everywhere.

What is best practice?

1. Ignore and continue as is? or
2. Take the coil apart and remove 100 windings?

Thanks!

#2071 31 days ago

850s are weaker, so unless it's affecting play there's no danger

#2072 31 days ago

Thank you. Sounds sensible.

#2073 31 days ago

I would leave them. If it bugs you or is causing problems, take 100 turns of wire off the 850 and relabel it as a 750.

#2074 30 days ago

So I am wondering if anyone has a scan of the BG that I could get a translight printed from? I don't have the cash for a new BG at the moment, so looking for something to hold me over.

#2075 29 days ago

Thanks Michel k17 for the glass. It’s a huge improvement over my stock unit. Your packaging was absolutely perfect. Now if you only had a Lectronamo glass.......

Oh wow... What a difference! Glad to hear it got there safe and sound.

Shout out to CPR(i.e. Classic Playfields - https://classicplayfields.com/) for their awesome customer service.

I had purchased a new BK backglass back in May, and eventually, I figured something was not quite right. It seemed like some of the artwork was just plain missing.

Bird (resized).png
Missing Black Highlight (resized).png

I sent a note to CPR to ask for help with the problem, and this is the very professional response that I got:

Thank you for bringing this to us. I know exactly what those glass problems are, as a couple printed wrong on a day back in the spring, and got sat aside. Somehow, both eventually later got grabbed and shipped to customers. This wasn't known until a little bit later, when we discovered the bunk prints were missing.

We were wondering where those glasses had went. One guy spoke up many months ago and we had exchanged his. Yours looks to be thankfully found, now we can deal with it.

The raster server that runs the press had stepped the gold layer ahead one in the layers... making the glass look the way it does, mainly because the gold layer ended up covering a whole bunch of the blackline layer.

Now for the odd part... I need you to destroy the bunk glass you have. Be safe, but being tempered the glass should break easily. Wrap in a sheet, snap the edge with a hammer. The glass is tempered, so it should "pop" into a million pieces... thus best being in a sheet (or hefty garbage bag). Then I need you to forward in a couple pictures to the web site address: inquiries@classicplayfields.com The reason for this is because our Bally/Williams licensing rules enforce the destruction of repro pieces that are too erroneous to allow out there in the wild.

So story short, pop the one we sent you, and a new one will be on it's way to replace it.

So yes, even though it broke my heart, I destroyed the backglass as they asked.

20190929_165855 (resized).jpg

Within a few days, I received the new and corrected backglass with all of the correct artwork. I can also confirm that the mirror finish is perfect!

Again: huge kudos to CPR. You guys rock!

I'm looking for a black knight 6-page flyer
I've searched all over the net and I can only find the single page flyer.

Anyone has one for sale, please PM

Im in and Im loving my BK! Has anyone added a light on upper right playfield under the plastic? im thinking of doing so.

#2082 15 days ago

It's been tried, and it is a waste of time. Even with a light, none of the light makes it through the plastic. If you are talking about the knight looking towards the left: don't waste your time.

Just played a BK tonight at a local bar which, as it turned out, had that light, and it did nothing.

additional edit:
----------------
Here is a post that shows all of the extra lights that can be added on the right side of the playfield, both lower and upper playfields. You can be the judge yourself.

Quoted from Heaterguy:

I added 3 lights to the upper playfield and it made a big difference. I installed them behind the red banner plastic facing to the back and not directly up.

Thanks Michel. This is the area I was talking about. The lower blue area looked good, the Knight did not look so good. Thanks again for the link!

I ran cool white LED strip lighting under the right side upper playfield plastics with decent results. I also added a spotlight, hidden under the plastic at the front of the upper playfield.

Do you have the specifics of your installation? (parts and location of your installation) - if available.

Here are some shots of the right upper playfield strip lighting. No photo of it, but I also installed some strip lighting in the bay between the two ramps on the upper playfield. I just used a Comet matric bulb and soldered a matrix connector to my strip wiring. I don't have a photo of the spotlight install but it was completely hidden under the plastic.

WTB: Green out lane proto plastics (with graphics right side up).

I'd like to get a set of the out lane proto plastics with the graphics the right side up. I got one of the early CPR sets with them upside down and CPR doesn't sell them individually.

PM me if you have some.
