Quoted from konghusker:
I'm looking at a used ecle woz with a build date of 8/7/13. I know the light boards were replaced, but what else should I be concerned about? I'm mostly worried about the playfield problems, and so what date is considered to have corrected playfield builds? Thanks for any input
My WOZECLE has a build date of 10/24/2013 and has the upgraded 7.5 volt LED light boards. My 7.5 volt LED light boards do not have the daughterboard enhancement board. I have not had any LED light board issues on my game.
I am guessing that a WOZECLE with a build date of 8/7/2013 will have the 5 volt LED light boards which seem to be the most problematic of the LED light boards although some folks with the 5 volt LED light boards have reported very few issues while others have reported that they have had issues with the 5 volt LED light boards.
I haven't had any playfield issues with my WOZECLE (chipping clear coat or lifting artwork). As I understand it some of the earlier Bader playfields had issues with the paint adhering properly to the wood playfield which was later corrected on the playfield production line after this was discovered. Based on this just because you have a Bader playfield doesn't necessarily mean that you will have a playfield problem.
I have no idea of the dates for the early playfield manufacturing process when this issue was corrected. I haven't heard of the Mirco playfields having this issue.
Hopefully others will chime in with their build dates and what else to look for and their experiences with WOZECLE.
