Hi All,

I just picked up a Black Rose and so far really enjoying it although i do need to fix a few issues for it to be playing nicely.

I have the common issue of the GI connectors and pins being burnt but will replace them shortly. The settings are never retained even when batteries are installed so i'm assuming there may be a solder issue with the holder itself (Hopefully). I'll be installing a remote battery holder instead anyway but will fix the holder also. Both wireforms are broken but i'll get them welded and powdercoated black.

Unfortunately i also have a broken cannon door which is on order. I still need to get a replacement cannon decal.

But the biggest issue i have is the installation of the cliffy. I have two installed but the bottom one was installed partially over mylar which has caused it to lift at a couple of the points and impact the flow of the ball. Can you remove and re-adhere the cliffy or is it too thin? I was thinking i would remove the mylar underneath (hopefully the diamond coat will prevent any damage from removal) and then either put this one back on if possible or get a new one.

Obviously i need to give the playfield a good clean but i'm expecting some good things out of it when it's finished. Once that's done i'll post a pic of it all lit up and looking nice.

Quoted from pocketscience:

Welcome to the club Andy! I had to redo the GI connectors as well when I got mine. Just make sure you replace the pins on the board as well as the cable connector - if you leave the manky pins they’ll continue to give you grief. Can’t offer anything on the cliffy issue - I don’t have one on mine.
It’s looking very likely the next ColorDMD title is Black Rose which is awesome - I installed a display a little while back in preparation!

Thanks mate. I'm actually going to be re-pinning the boards and installing the remote battery holder today. Supposed to be building a retaining wall but the rain is giving me a break here and there

Quoted from Duvall:

I *thought* the cliffy is supposed to be installed on the top of the canon to protect that leading edge of the PF?

Thanks for the info. I didn't know that. Mine has two installed. One at the top and one at the bottom. If I don't find any damage under it when I remove it I'll probably not put another on.

Hi All,
I've been cleaning up a black rose I picked up recently. It's mostly done but unfortunately whoever installed the cliffy did it partially over mylar so it was lifting. I've removed the cliffy and the mylar but was wondering if anyone has re-applied a cliffy before. I was thinking about removing the adhesive and using some ultra thin 3m tape.
