Officially in the club as of last night!
So big Skateball fan, sold mine awhile back, but stayed on the list because I know I will track down another in the future. I also really appreciate CPR and what they do for the hobby, but....is it just me or are the colors way off on the CPR playfield? It looks severely muted in tones compared to what I recall mine looking like, and what other pictures look like in this thread as well as on IPDB. I notice the biggest differences in the blues and greens where originally they were almost a neon color and now they just look....well certainly not neon or bright.
I'm just guessing, but I know some people weren't thrilled with the skateball playfields so maybe they are selling some that were returned perhaps. I'm a former club member who has recognized the error of my ways and looking to get back in so anyone who is wanting an exit just let me know.
Quoted from DavidC:
hi all, new to the club... my pf is worn...any cpr for sale here? any hard top available? thanks for clues
Starship Fantasy definitely just had some at Expo if CPR is sold out on their website check with Starship.
Skateball lovers.... I come to you in great need.
Using quarantine to tackle my first playfield swap....and well let's just say attempting to pull an all-nighter and do this was a terrible idea to start with. If anyone has done a swap and can share your pictures of the underside I would be greatly appreciative.
If no one out there has done that, but you are willing to lift your playfield up and take me detailed pictures of the wireharness connections at the switches at the top of the playfield, basically everything above the 5-bank of drops on the playfield it would help me out a ton.
When I washed the harness i released too many zip ties and it turned my harness into a tangled mess that I'm working on solving. Thank you so much for any help. Pics can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or just message me here and let me know how it would be best to get them from you.
Quoted from PinballOrphanage:
Why did you take the harness apart? I leave all wires connected to switches and mechs and inspect the solder connections as i reinstall onto the new.
Because I’m a fool and had been working on it for almost 24 hours straight at that point. Mistakes were certainly made. I’ll get it sorted though.
Thanks Swinks! Got the pics!
Quoted from FLASHBALL:
New to the club!! I'm missing this same exact gate as well.
But I'm not as concerned with the gate missing as I am with the LEDs ghosting and strobing. I ordered the comet warm white frosted retro bullets. They look really nice minus the ghosting/strobing issue. I am a system11 lover and have never had this issue before.
Is there an easy solution? At first I thought of the LED OCD board but that isnt designed for these older Ballys.[quoted image]
