    Can anyone please point me to a link that can show me how to replace an LED in the playfield? I have a Zizzle Pirates. Thanks much for any help!

    I am not familiar with any Zizzle games... but you have General Illumination(GI) which is above the playfield and Controlled(insert) illumination located below the playfield. To get underneath, you need to remove the lockdown bar and slide the glass out then lift he playfield. It's as simple as swapping the incadencents with the same socket type of LED's(#44 bayonet base/#555 wedge base). The GI bulbs can be reached by taking off the plastics above them, or sometimes you can unscrew the socket from underneath with a 1/4" bit. Again, not sure how a Zizzle is built. I order Non Ghosted frosted LEDs from Pinball life. All up to you on color. Most choose between cool or warm white.

    Original poster, be careful of this advice, or any here that is not specific to Zizzle games without verifying it.

    Zizzle games are small, home models that most people here have never actually played, let alone worked on. The voltages, sizing, and everything will be out of the realm of people’s experiences here, including mine. So don’t just go ordering bulbs without being really sure.

    And I’m not knocking the advice given, it may still apply. However we aren’t sure about that.

    Stet my above comment. Looks like Zizzle is completely different. The advice given in the thread schamattack posted above is more accurate for your machine. Good luck on it!

    Yea, I had actually posted at the end of that string the other day, but didn't get a response. The picture shows there are 4 wires coming off the led base or holding clip, just not sure which to remove, but i suppose if I take it apart that might help me to understand which 2 are going to the led light. It's all daisy chained so that last thing I want to do is mess up all the other lights on the playfield. hmmm....
