Quoted from JPKnapp:

This is probably it. I do tend to hold the flipper up a lot. So the flipper would have worked, but just got burnt out because the coil kept going trying to "open" the flipper? And the remedy is a new coil and getting those EOS wires connected to the right spot?

Could be the fix. The next question then becomes, why were the wires cut off of the Eos switch by someone previously?? Ahhhh the joys of buying a used pinball

I just bought a RCT and the small led display displays words fine but the digits aren't defined,you can make out some parts of the numbers, yet in the test mode the display checks out, any help would be appreciated.

Has anyone put LEDs in theirs and can you share a specific list of colors and bulb types that go into this game? It's my first do-it-myself attempt. Baby steps I know.

Can anyone tell me if Gottlieb A19508 would be a suitable replacement for stern 515-6916-01? It’s the coil to trip the drop target bank.

A number of companies like Cointaker have kits available.

Quoted from jaytrem:Looks like the wires were removed from your EOS switch (the switch on the flipper assembly). Might have burnt up your coil if you've been holding the flipper up.

Even with the wires removed from the Eos switch, the coil will not burn.

Has anyone replaced or somehow modified the back glass lighting? That single fluorescent bulb is awful. I'm thinking an LED strip, but I dont know how I'd power it. Any thoughts?

You can bypass the fluorescent ballast and install an LED tube that runs off of straight 120v. I did it on my RBION. Its been a while and I don't remember exactly what I did, but if you do a search in the threads, it has been documented. I mainly did it to get rid of the awful ballast hum.

Anyone know what would cause the digits on the LED screen to appear like this, the number 1145 should be showing, yet in test mode the LED screen tests fine and the introductory wording is fine when the machine is turned on.
