I think Vid says hang the glass upside down (small hole on one side of channel) Place just off the ground directly over towels or padding so glass safely falls into padded material. It might take up to two days in some cases.

I personally didn't take his advice <rare exception> and took a chance carefully apply downward pressure to one side, once it started to loosen I was able to work it off.

Quoted from BJM-Maxx:

I don't know if other people do this or not but I like to establish a mental value for whether I am playing below my normal skill level or not.

I think 2.2 mill is my high score currently. Average, decent game is about 300,000. A ball time longer than 1 minute is good play IMO.

Can't wait to get FG back in the lineup. It's been away for the last month undergoing a CPR PF swap.

I really have to get my FG up and running correctly. I restored the cabinet and had someone do a playfield swap for me (after looking for a CPR replacement for what seemed like an eternity) My problem was when I was finishing the cabinet up I accidentally plugged the strobe transformer into the backbox receptacle and vice versa. Weird these are next to each other and keyed the same . The game plays almost 100%, but I have no backbox lights and that means no sound either. I love Flash Gordon, but the sound is a must IMO.

When I did my oops moment and powered the game on I saw a small poof of smoke from the #1 display area. I had new displays ready to replace anyway and they currently work, but it didn't fix my no backbox lights issue. MY strobe board is new and worked, but it doesn't seem to do anything either. F2 blows on start up. I have looked for obvious signs of failure but don't see anything out of the ordinary. Anyway, its tough to look at this beauty and not play it. The CPR PF is awesome by the way, the neon colors really react to the blacklight in my arcade too.
