was wondering if any one has seen this before...caulk on coils on underside of playfield mostly covering diodes and also the crazy big wire attached to the top out hole on powerplay ? it's 3 feet long and doesn't attach to anything else...just a loop???

It looks like someone was worried about the coil diodes moving and who knows what the lamp cord was for. Be careful with it - more than likely there’s coil voltage on it.

I would not try to remove the caulk unless it’s soft or the diode is bad. Otherwise you will likely damage the diode.

No reason for either of those hacks so remove them. The cord wire, if it's doing anything, once removed you will find out then you can fix it properly.

Say what??? There's a club for this game too? I bought this game (complete with an "Out Of Order" sign) from an arcade in 1986 back when I was in college, so might i be one of the longest standing club members? Plus I got Bobby Orr to autograph this topper for me several years ago. So needless to say this one's been around so long it's got some sentimental value. And I love those early SS chime games.

Found mine in the head! And yes, they are often the source of a lock up and fuse blow so some folks will just snip the wires. Look on the left side in the head up by the CPU.

previous owner decided to do some re-wiring on the lower flippers on this power play with LAMP CORD!
and also covered the coil diodes with silicon caulk(not sure why)?

anyway...would some kind soul help out with some under playfield pics of the lower flipper wiring?
Thank you so much!

my left lower flipper energizes once then falls down(will not stay up)
perhaps a diode or issues with the wiring?

unfortunately this is the best I can do with pictures as my machine is back East so I can only share the ones I have saved to my PC. Click on the pictures and then zoom in...might help!

Any word when CPR will be releasing the current run of Power Play playfields?
Just took one into the shop that needs a new playfield badly.

#62 9 months ago

they are available in red and orange>
thanks

#64 9 months ago

I am about to list my Bobby Orr for sale. PM me if interested.

I guess I joined the club a while back but never posted. I picked this up at an auction in 2018. It is rough, missing the backglass and had a huge mouse nest on the playfield. It sat untouched until a few months ago. I almost have it playing now. I am waiting for CPR to release the next batch of playfields so I can start the complete restoration. I will also be picking up a CPR backglass and plastics set for it.

another winner from Wolffpactech!

just finished the first display for my Bally Power Play!

The reasoning behind the different colors I ordered was that team Canada will be the Blue displays and Chicago Blackhawks all stars will be the red!

An original "6" matchup!

And for the heck of it, orange for the credit/ball in play!

Assembled and tested...works great!

Included pic of failing display to replace...

My soldering skills are getting better all the time thanks to you!

Thank you for great products!

Stay safe ...stay healthy!

Let’s see them installed and lit up.

#69 8 months ago

Thanks to Randy_G for the heads up that CPR had put these on their website, so I was able to snag one. They sold out again in less than 3 days. I also bought a new backglass and plastics. I'm impressed with the digital printing it looks great. My only complaint is they go to all this trouble to remake this playfield but don't bother to align artwork it at the bottom around the pop up bumper hole between the flippers. I have seen other pictures and they all appear to be this way. Still way better than what I had, just wish their attention to detail was a little better. (I also bought a Meteor playfield from them and it has missing target values by the upper drop targets)

The yellow on that playfield looks really washed out (faded).

#71 8 months ago

Any one know when CPR is going to have more BOPP playfields? The website says they are doing another run, but when?

You try sending an email to CPR? All you're going to get here is speculation, unless Kevin happens to see this.

Overall I am very happy with mine. You would think maybe they could get around to fixing the registration on the bottom. Here's a pic of mine from the first digital run. Same thing. And at the right angle/light one can clearly see the back and forth lines of the printer. My biggest problem at this moment is cleaning all the clear coat out of the ten rollover holes.

The clear-coat is always an issue no matter who does the clear-coating job as someone needs to clean it up before the star rollovers can be installed.

Your playfield looks better than ita47 ... comparing your yellow to his, his looks like the yellow ink ran out, unless it's just the way he captured the picture!

#75 8 months ago

" unless it's just the way he captured the picture!"

Maybe. If you look at the 3X lens it also looks pretty dull. And that ain't ink.

#76 8 months ago

It was the lighting, sorry just snapped a quick pic and posted it. Here is a close up on the yellow, still not not the best lighting for pictures (LED flood lights). It looks better in person.

No doubt. What I noticed about yours is that the bottom has no paint.

#78 8 months ago

Brand new star rollovers come with the same color insert that the clear-coater is supposed to leave in while spraying the field.
They then get taken out during the hardening time of the clear coat. This method would mean no need for the exacto blade cleaning process of the star rollover or at the very least serves to minimize the cleaning out of them.

Yeah I was a little bummed that the bottom wasn't painted gray like the original. My Meteor playfield from CPR was the same just bare wood. Seems some are painted and some are not. I plan to paint the bottom of both of them. I'm not excited about having to clean out all of those star roll overs either. CPR needs to step up their game, they are letting a lot of things slip through that shouldn't.

Power play
Need some assistance in identifying where these wires in picture go.
Located near MPU J1 wire colors are
black / yellow 83
2nd wire white / yellow 53
Game is Power Play
Connector diagram in manual doesn’t show these colors.
J1 connector doesn’t have empty slots
Any one with BOPP can look and see where these wires go

Also replied to this question in the Bally/Stern club thread.
Those two wires are for the knocker in the head. You'll see them near the middle of the wiring diagram.

Used Pinitech Uno displays - blue LED with smoke filter. Displays look great and I would recommend them to anyone.

I couldn't agree more -- coincidentally I just did the same thing. Blue displays look pretty awesome integrated with this backglass.
