    Hi,

    I am doing a playfield swap and will use LEDs for GI. I was wondering if all sockets had to be wired the same way or if it does not make any difference. Below is a pic of the original wiring. The center socket is not connected to the same branches as the outer sockets. This is such a basic question that I feel bad just asking but I don't want to run into trouble later on. Thanks for your help,

    Jack

    No need to feel bad about any question! For the GI bulbs, they are A/C voltage which means they are non polarity sensitive. So they can be connected either way with no problem. Something light a flasher circuit which is DC voltage the tab that goes to the center of the bulb socket needs to be the positive voltage.
