Lets start a club to discuss Playboy 35th Anniversary Pinball. What types of mods and upgrades have you done to your game? Are you looking for any parts? Why did you buy a Playboy 35th?

#2 3 years ago

I am thinking about getting Alternative Translites made up. Anyone want join my purchase?

#3 3 years ago

What kind of alternative are you thinking about? I just recently purchased one to completely rebuild and have been slowly rounding up parts...mine came without any boards, so that has been my first mission. I have a newer aftermarket power supply, and the original PPB board, so far. Working on getting a sound board, aftermarket scoreboard, and either original mpu if I can find one at a decent price, or suck it up and buy an aftermarket mpu, as well. I'm also in the market for a full set of legs.

Hey if you end up buying repo plastic set it comes with extra center target plastic and slingshot plastic. I need one of each of these. BTW I got a translite on eBay. Classic arcade just listed them.

#5 3 years ago

I'd love to get an alternate translite for this. count me in.

My DE Playboy came with no boards, and I am finally done buying boards, but I was hoping that I could get some closeup pics of someone else's game so I have a better idea of where all of the connectors go on the boards? It would be a great help, and I appreciate it if it can be done. Thank you.

Give me a better idea of which plastics you are looking for and I have extras I will let you know....I did purchase the CPR bling version so I'm in no need of the current set that I have for the machine. I would be happy to help out a fellow pinhead!!

I ended up buying a bunch of spare sets of plastics. I'm going to replace my bad ones and offer up what is left.

Starting to slowly get my machine piece mealed back together. Looking for a little assistance with the speaker connections. Mine have been cut. Can I get a picture of the ends where the speakers hook up to, that would be helpful. Here is what mine looks like:

Sight_2016_07_28_185340_148_(resized).jpg

#10 2 years ago

I actually just picked one up and had to remove the head to move it. Thought I had to cut the speaker wires until I realized there was a plug to disconnect from the wire harness. It's too bad they didn't figure it out too.

I can take some pictures for you but it might not be until tomorrow.

#11 2 years ago

This is my first pin. I had to do major work on the boards to make it stable. I did put in the flash/ram chip to eliminate the batteries and recapped the sound board. Read the DE service bulletins. I put inline fuses for the coils that can stick open. This happened to me and roasted about 10 output transistors. I know this is my opinion but I spent about $200 on LED's with the premium faceted 3500k white LED's and color matched high quality ones for the colored inserts and it had a unbelievable change. It made it look 20 years newer. Power consumption went down with LED's and it seemed to help the power supply and less heat/hot spots. I also have a pinscore I believe power supply and not the original as well as replacing the display.

#12 2 years ago

Sounds great...i can use as many pics as I can get. Also, under playfield pics of wires going to thumper bumpers, flippers. My machine was raided to complete another machine, so now I'm getting all the missing pieces back to revive it. Can't wait for it to be finished. Definitely doing LED's, too. They make a pin look new and play is more fun. Thank you for your replies and help.

#13 2 years ago

Hopefully these post in the correct order:

First picture is the wiring for the speaker panel. The ring terminal goes under the wingnut on the left side of your photo. The ground braid should also be under that wingnut.

Second picture is the location it plugs into the wire harness (lower left) It's near where it splits in a bunch of directions and doesn't have very far to go to...

The third picture which is the plug for the board which I've labeled CN1.

I will hopefully have someone help me move this into the basement today so I can start re-assembling. I can post more pictures then. I might need some help identifying wiring for connectors which were soldered directly to the boards so had to be cut. It was supposedly fully working, but who knows.

Hope this helps.

Those are great pics... Thank you. I now know I need a 7 lead molex... How are the reds and blacks in it... Is it right red,left red, then right black, left black?

#15 2 years ago

Oh sorry, I see they have stripes through the corresponding wire, my bad. Ill be in touch with more q&a soon once I get more into it. Going to swap out a better playfield I found first and clear coat it before I delve any further. Anybody in need of a playfield, I'll have one that's not too bad... Touch up in game room section and couple spots on the water and gold by stand up targets. I might even do the touch ups first before I sell it off. Thanks again

Curious, why is there a black speaker housing and a gold one? Were there different options for this machine? Mine came with a black one but i purchased a gold one and have to make some modifications to make it work properly.

#17 2 years ago

Just wanted to shoot out a FYI to anyone in this club interested in used plastics for this machine, i have some that I'm willing to part with to any of you first before i go and list them on eBay or Pinside market place. Let me know what you need with a picture to my inbox and I'll let you know what i have...i upgraded to a new set and I have no use for the originals.

Getting into the reconstruction of this monster some more. I've included pics of where I could use some help. Don't know how the back of the slide, where mansion is on top, is mounted on back of playfield. Next, what does that switch do that's mounted on back of mansion? Where does other switch go that is attached to that small harness? What is the purpose of the two screws in the side of the slide? I need a pic of the switch mounted underneath the playfield of left outlane switch. And, how is the other slide connected in back, as well?... Last question, what pieces go behind 3-stand up target? Lots of questions, but I'm stumped on these sections. I've included pics for all my questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I got this machine stripped and it's got alot of little spots i can't find pics to help me on the internet... I'm almost there though!!

Hello all....any chance I could get a couple up close pics of the slingshot set up under the playfield....I need to see the wiring going from both switches to make sure I'm not missing something. Thank you for any help.

DE PB35 owners out there.... Two questions.
1) If you stop the ball or take it off the field of play for like thirty seconds without it hitting anything, do your VUK and Champagne kickers activate? Mine does and I'm guessing its either not supposed to do that or it does it in case the ball gets stuck so the machine knows to activate them to get the ball moving again?

2) What is the purpose of these two screws on the right slide?? See pic.

The two screws are there to keep a ball from getting stuck. Your lost ball kicker action is normal. Mine does it too.

Thank you for that clarification. And answering my questions. I feel better now knowing its a part of the game.

Sound Board help --- Can someone please verify that capacitors go into C6 and C7, and what size they are? I think they are 4.7uf at 100 volts, but I want to make sure before I solder some in there. Thank you.

#26 1 year ago

C6 & C7 are marked as 4.7 uF at 50V in the paperwork.

Believe me it was not at all...
It wasnt completely taken apart ever.

I polished the PF for 3 days and around the Bumpers the PF is completely fucked.

It came out nicer than i thought though and looks great with LEDs.

Need to light up the PF some more with Stripes to get the artwork to stand out more.
