Welcome to the club. If you need new plastics and mini pf they are available. If you led it you'll want both OCD boards, it'll look great then.

OCD Boards??

#304 3 months ago

He’s talking about the LED-OCD and GI-OCD boards that can be purchased to make your LED bulbs behave more like incandescent bulbs... the GI board completely eliminated flicker one games that feature GI dimming. And the LED boards help to Re-introduce that slower blink that incandescent insert bulbs exhibit.

They’re a nice add on... more important on some games as opposed to others (I’ve had a lot of success with the GI boards on Addams Family, Johnny, and White Water)... all of those games have moments of GI dimming that doesn’t play as well with LED bulbs.

I had bad flickering of the GI until I put the GI OCD board in, they are perfect now same with the inserts until I put the LED OCD board in.

The art package on this game is awesome... I don't have a copy of the game yet, but I was lucky enough to purchase the original backglass illustration recently. Such a great backglass painting IMHO

WOW!!! Now that's cool. Congrats. I hope you can find a nice example. Watch out for faded cab and bb art, you can't get them anymore.

Does the Jack Bot face in the backbox light up like pinbot?

Get your enhanced 5 drop target base and 5 drop target back here:

Base (resized).png
Pinbot/Jackbot Enhanced 5 Drop Target Base
This is an enhanced underplayfield drop target base for the 1986 Williams Pin*Bot and 1990 Williams Jack*Bot pinball machines. This piece is often found broken or glued together on the pinball machine. Having a new base is ideal to keep the moving target rigid and free from wiggling in the up or down position. I have enhanced the slim piece that attches to the under side of the playfield by thickening the material and adding a diagonal cant to make the piece able to take more abuse.

Back (resized).png
Pinbot/Jackbot 5 Drop Target Back
This is a replacement drop target back for the 1986 Williams Pin*Bot and 1990 Williams Jack*Bot pinball machines. This piece is often found broken as it is constantly getting hammered by the silver ball. Having a new back is ideal to keep the moving target rigid and free from wiggling in the up or down position.

I see you got a LCD, so did I. Got it in the mail yesterday but don't know when I'll have time to install it, Leg Light orders are keeping me REAL busy. Now you need the light up speaker panel, that's next for me.

Nope, I have LED. I like the dot look on the DMDs. So does the wife.

Holy Crap! I didn’t realize they released JB on CDMD!

This is my grail CDMD! So psyched!!!

Well I installed mine and I got the dreaded optos in ball trough not working check connection etc. Went to their web site and looked under trouble shooting and they had a listing for that. All connections are good so I may have not enough 12v power. Anyone know which of the 3 power wires is the + and -? I have a 12v wall wart I can splice into to power it. I just reseated the connectors and now the game will start but no balls will kick out.

Yup mine too J16, just like in the instructions. But my J16 12v must be weak.

I'm on the hunt for the three-bank drop target decals.

Anyone know where they're sold? I can't seem to find them...
