I've wanted a Centaur for a long time. I even have "bad move, human" as my text tone on my phone. Finally picked one up today at the York show. She needs a bit of work but the playfield was mylar'd so there's not too much wear and that's biggie for me.

Quick questions for you guys running LED's. Does Centaur need BOTH the regular lamp driver board AND the aux. one? Will just having the main one remove the flicker or do I need both?

#570 2 years ago

I've noticed some Centaurs have a smaller board attached to the Say It Again board. Was that something somebody made aftermarket? HEP's has one on it in the photos.

#573 2 years ago

So is this a COMPLETE replacement for the say it again board?

Regarding LED's, do Bally's have an issue with ghosting? Not flicker which would be handled by the Alltek board, but ghosting? Meaning, can I buy regular super bright's for the CPU controlled lamps or do I need the non-ghosting ones?

I've moved onto the playfield on my Centaur and somebody really screwed up the flipper wiring. They also didn't gap the EOS switch right on one of the them so it NEVER opened. Probably why it fried the coil and blew the 5 volt fuse. Anyway, could someone PLEASE post some pics of the flipper wiring to the coils and EOS switches so I can try to match up the colors. Thanks.

Bumb for some pics.

What size is the captive ball? Is it the normal 1 1/16"? If so, after installing a new plastic set, a regular size ball won't stay.

Quoted from calico1997:

I was told previously in this forum that it is a steel bingo ball and they are very affordable from Pinball Resource. Marco has them but wants about 4 times the price.

Thank you. I do have a couple of them left over from an old wood rail I repaired. I took one and coated it with some Mother's and a sock and polished till it was smooth. Just wasn't sure if this was the correct size.

I kept mine a typical 555. Yes, I think it needs to create a load for the mini aux driver mounted under the playfield. This is the board that flashes the GI.

Mine. Finished. The player four display has been replaced. No HEP, but it's decent.

Something I'd like to add. While I am using a Alltek lamp driver board, I am still using the original aux lamp driver board while utilizing LED's in everything. No flickering issues.

I have a new CPR plastic set in my Centaur and I had to use a bingo sized ball. Honestly, who cares as long as it fits and the ball in play cracks it into the queen's target? This shot is hard enough as it is.

My boy, Beemer, approves of the new speaker system for Centaur...
