Are replacements available for the ramp boards? I’m fixing up a recent CFTBL purchase.

Two lamps were out on a segment of the mini ramp light board. I jumpered them from lamps on the same board that were working and they came on. This worked so I figured an easy solution would be to solder a wire between the good and the bad lamps. Now all four lamps that don’t come on. They are still out after removing the soldered jumper wire.

I’ve tested the transistors on the chase lamp board and they all seem okay. These four lamps will come on if I jumper them from working lamps on the same board.

Earlier this year I got a CFTBL with a functioning hologram mechanism (lamps+motors) but a completely faded hologram.
Thank y'all pinsiders who has shared different ideas and posts on hologram fixes.
I've combined a lot of those and have the following working in my machine.

I first laser etched an image of the creature on 1/4" acrylic at the public library.


I had to bend the bottom of the existing hologram frame wider to accommodate LED strips on the bottom.
I've removed the existing hologram and plate and will leave the motor disconnected.

The 12V halogen lamp was moved to the front of the light baffle in the cabinet for accessibility.

I bought 2 matrix kits from Comet pinball for 12V. There's an adapter that fits in the 12V lamp socket in the game.

The 12V green LED strips are positioned so light shines upward through the acrylic.
The existing frame has holes the wiring can feed through.

I used Comet's matrix wiring to connect the 2 LED strips via a long wire to the lamp.

The parts for all this run under $30, maybe less.

Quoted from Tjohejsan:

Thats True.
I actually changed the switch to a new one.
And tried some different numbers of washers and got it to do 3 loops.
And thats just perfect.
I really dont want to do 8 loops. Thats not how it was made to do.
And in competion that would be not good.

I made a reed switch, then fixed mine by leveling the bowl with washers. 3-4 switch hits is what I get now. I never installed the reed switch.

I've custom designed, printed and hand painted hot dog switch covers.
They look and fit great on many games. I am selling sets(2) for $20.
