Quoted from GTO:

Is it the prism card battery?

yeap. Good luck with that.

#3802 10 days ago

You can buy a prism-divert-tool and battery from Applejuice. The tool works really nice to separate the two parts of the prism card.

Quoted from GTO:

Okay, noob question here:
I had a couple of good games on my new RFM and saved my initials for high scores. However, after turning off the game and powering up again, my high scores are gone. Has happened a couple of days in a row. I changed the battery on the PC motherboard, but no luck. Any idea what saves the high scores on this game? Is it the prism card battery?

Yep i have both the proper batteries and the separator tool available.

Quoted from Ricochet:

It's a hack... and your power box is missing the transformer configuration plug. Be careful because you don't know how its connected... it could be always on (a hot connection directly wired to the AC power lines).
Here is a link to some pictures of my restoration... you can find some power box pics in there for reference...

I use the exact same laptop to update.

I lucked out, threw out the one I used to use but was recently given this along with some other antiquated crap. Couldn't get the darn thing to work right, until I realized it was my fault, I had cleaned it up and added Avast... mistake. Deleted Avast this am in Safemode, Bam, worked again.

Thanks again for making these available. The battery I bought on Amazon was apparently DOA.

You need to crank up the baud rate! I always have it set to the max.

Quoted from mattosborn:You need to crank up the baud rate! I always have it set to the max.

I was in no rush, and read a few posts about failures due to speed, so went slow to play it safe. Actually went by fast, because as soon as it started I heard the wife drop a pizza sauce glass bottle grenade on the kitchen floor. After cleaning that up and vacuuming the millions of glass shrapnel shards up, a few times, it was almost finished.

No problem, i have a good reliable supply of them. They are made by Panasonic to. Also for anyone thinking of using a different type battery and changing the holder. Don't, There's a reason this type of battery was used with prism cards. The BR series batteries are much less likely to leak.

Well, it took all afternoon but this finally happened. New LED translight, LCD monitor, major mods on the bracket kit I bought with the monitor ( Not happy with the poorly designed adapter kit brackets but I made lemonade anyway with it and the original brackets). All wired in and tomorrow going to start on switches and find out why it burns fuses. Wish me luck.

What was the issue with the monitor kit?
Who did you buy from?
What did you have to mod?

#3817 8 days ago

The brackets they suggested I buy with the monitor (I don't want to bad mouth anyone here on pinside, trying to be positive) were to mount the LCD in an arcade cabinet I think. I had to cut the back side of the brackets off, drill holes in the LCD adapter kit and take the frame off the old monitor and use both to mount the LCD. I didn't use half of the brackets on the conversion kit. I bought a complete 20" led light to replace the factory T8 assembly. If I had to do it again I would buy a flat piece of mind steel, cut out where the LCD mounts and drill holes for the LCD and where the plate mounts to the cabinet, paint it all black and be done.

Working on the black vuk, found one of the opto sensors black and the other clear/rose colored. The black one is burnt out, right?

No not right

Photo Trans Assy (Receiver) A-14232 is Dark colour
InfraRed transmitter board is A-14231 is lighter colour
Some camera's phone can see the transmitter light

How Can I tell a Transmitter from a Receiver?
In case you have optos laying around and you don't know if they are transmitters or receivers, a simple diode test with a DMM across the leads will reveal which LED type it is. A transmitter will check about 1.5 across the leads one way, open (no reading) the other way. A receiver will check open (no reading) either direction unless you shine a flashlight on it, then it will check open one way and shorted (0) when the leads are reversed.

Sorry to ask , I just picked up a RFM. Is there a type of cleaner I should or should not use on the playfield glass?

Glad you asked. Picked one up today! Never had a p2k. Glass is super smudged and I also want to clean it.

I just use Windex and a cotton t-shirt.

#3824 4 days ago

Doesn't Windex have ammonia in it which can react badly with the metallic coating on Pin2k glass?
I use old Windex Advanced... which afaik was discontinued.

#3825 3 days ago

I use this (with a microfiber cloth) for all my PDI and PB2K glass.

Sorry, I use "Ammonia free Windex"

#3827 3 days ago

Cool, thanks. I use an ammonia free product on my invisaglass. I kind of figured the p2k glass should at least get the same but I just wanted to check as I didn’t see anything posted about it and I don’t know if it needed something more special. I know the p2k glass is hard to replace lol. Thanks and have a great weekend all.
