Quoted from Leaftail:

I'm still waiting on Planetary to start producing the playfield glass again. They tell me it will happen, but no timeline provided. https://www.planetarypinball.com/product/pinball-2000-playfield-glass-rfm-swe1/

Me too, as well as quite a few owners I am sure! Mine has a big set of initials carved in the glass, about 10 inches tall!

That is the main problem with my glass, someone carved their initials into it. Luckily mine aren't that big.

I just received an email from Planetary Pinball, Pinball2000 Playfield glass is now back in stock!

$350 ouch!

Why not just order a glass from a local glass shop?

Because 'normal' glass is not working in pinball 2000 machines-they don't have the mirror effect

By chance does anyone know of someone that could repair an RFM monitor in the Seattle area? Needs a new flyback, cap kit, and horizontal transistor from what I understand. It's an Italian import so the monitor is an Intervideo VP series. I'd rather not ship this thing around....

Just FYI you can remove the chassis (circuit board) from the monitor if you do end up needing to ship it out for repair. No need to ship the actual tube. This is done often just like pinball circuit board repairs.

Are flybacks even an option these days?
Thought they were un obtain ium

Flyback transformers are still readily available for most common monitors.

There are two different monitors used in Pinball 2000 machines. Flybacks for the Wells-Gardner k7300 are readily available, but I don't think there are any replacement flybacks for the Ducksan monitor.

That's what I always hear as well but I'm not sure about mine given that it is an entirely different model (Intervideo VP)...

Remember, there's nothing special about the monitor models Williams used for P2K. Any 19" standard res monitor will work. Just need to put it in the custom frame and wire up a 15-pin connector correctly.

Agreed. I bought a Cherry 19" as a backup years ago when it became clear no more CRTs would be produced. It was made for some other arcade machine (bartop if I recall) but it will get the job done for RFM.

Thanks. Looking for path of least resistance to start but may have no choice but to find something else.

Quoted from wamonkey:

Hey all - rebuilt my pop bumpers recently and after I was done I am getting this error but it makes no sense the drop target actuates and registers the hits.
I am running the latest my pinballs code - just wondering what it could be when the only drop target works fine.
[quoted image]

So - maybe the coilk diode was bad I replaced it then got some other funky errors like a F107 fuse blown. Looked on some posts on Pinside and said rest the whole game and see if that clears the errors and strange as it sounds it cleaned up all the errors. Played it multiple times multiple startups and shutdowns and so far no return of the errors.

have a 3d translite; no interest in this design unless a 3D version becomes available.

I got the email, love the artwork, but it looks like it illuminates blueish green? Like the original better in that aspect.

Pretty sure that is just because he's using one of those lighted frames and it may be on blue setting or even cool white could cause that. Regular tube in the game won't have that effect.

Ahh...I'll go stare at mine again and decide

Hey everyone - looks l ike someone already beat me to sharing this, but I wanted to share soem more photos.
I created a new Translite for Revenge From Mars to go along with the Side Blades I had already created.
You can check them out here:
https://www.flylanddesigns.com/product-category/pinball-and-arcade-artwork/

Alternate Translite artwork of the classic Revenge From Mars art redrawn in my own style. Officially licensed from Williams!

21.5″x13.75″ Tall. Measures to fit in any Revenge From Mars machine. Looks beautiful when backlit!

Translites are Signed by the me

-We used double-layered ink, and double-layered white backing to make the colors really pop.
-High-quality flexible translite material. Printed with the same materials as mainstream pinball machines.
-Designed to work great with the existing LED light scheme
-White silk-screened backing produces very high illumination
-Extra-thick, rigid Translite (thicker than most factory Translites, including Stern)
-Thicker than most Factory Translites!

THANK YOU!

Thanks! I can assure you that it doesn't look blue in real life. This is in an LED frame with white turned way up, and the blue hue is from the camera. It's very difficult to photograph something that is illuminated. If you're interested in trying it out, we'd always accept a return/refund if you weren't happy with it.

Thank you sir, BTW, your artwork skill is insane. I wish I had 1% of your skill.

My right side martian is stuck. Anyone know if there is a rebuild kit for this?

My left Martian was sticking so I took apart the assembly and cleaned the coil sleeve and plunger. Works great now, if not replace the coil sleeve.

Thank you. I'll give cleaning a go.
