Hi, I have an eight ball deluxe with strobing displays, the dispalys work show correct scoring but they just strobe, the test point in the print says it needs to be 190vdc and I’m getting 160-170 somewheres in there, is this my problem? Does anyone have any further information or trouble shooting ideas thanks for reading!

There is a small potentiometer on the solenoid board that controls the voltage going to the displays. More juice should help. Adjust it VERY carefully with a small screwdriver while checking the voltage. Too much will make them bright and burn out quicker, too little will make them strobe as you are seeing. Gimme a minute and I'll put up a picture.

Hopefully you have the clear plastic cover over the high voltage section. There is a small hole over the pot for making adjustments. In any case, be careful. Enough juice there to do you in.
