I just got my 86 pinbot.. player one display and player number ball are working.. player 2 3 and 4 are not.. it seemed when I looked the machines displays all worked and here they seemed to.. now 3 of them are not working .. any common issue with this I should look for ?

Everything else on the game is fine.. I've disconnected and reconnected the ribbon cables and still nothing ?

And if I swap at the board the 1 and 2 display connectors no 1 display will show what number 2 should display should show ?

PinballLife sells display glass at around $60 each. If you go this way, confirm you have the correct voltages on your power supply so you dont blow up the new displays.

Since you have to replace 3 of them, maybe its a good idea to upgrade to LED displays? The cost will be about the same and these will last a lifetime, plus you don't have the hassle of having to solder the display glass.

If three are out, I would just get a whole new display and not mess with new glass.

Maker sure the ribbon cables are ok. Then if the displays are bad, i would go with xpin...

After a few tests.. 3,displays are,down.. and the one that works is changed... gonna get the led set.. for 210 bucks it seems worth it...
