Looking at RFM and the plastic translite is very faded. Is there an alternative light source offered like leds tube or something that can be put in to prevent this? New translite is expensive.
Have seen replacement led tubes for larger bulbs like the ones in Stern backboxes but nothing for shorter bulbs. Have not found anything obvious searching.
Thank You
Happy V-day

What wattage is that candle? Bayonet fitting or wax droplet?

it worked well for a while. then got super super bright. Now the game looks like a pile of ash and just won't boot up. Any ideas?

I would guess the candle did more than fade the translite.

Go into menu, tests and then check 'wick' setting.
