Quoted from nugsy:

Question about troubleshooting light boards: the leftmost stand up in the center 3-bank has gone out ("Advance" in "Advance Escape Route"). When I first got the machine, it was working according to pictures I have. I replaced the bulb and cleaned off the connections to the twist socket on both the socket pins and board connector with no success. I traced the wiring about as competently as I could, reseated a few connectors as well as the light matrix headers in the backbox. I didn't notice any burnt pins or otherwise obviously bad connections.
What might a T2 veteran recommend looking into next? T2 is for all intents and purposes my very first pin and I am learning a lot about repair as I go. Any advice is welcome

Start at the source and work back. First remove the plug from the light board. Then test the socket flanges via DMM continuity. Then, test continuity with a DMM from the pins on the board to the socket solder "half moons" (where the flanges twist in). Then, test continuity from the plug end that goes to the light board, to the plug end that goes to the backbox board.

My guess is that you have a poor connection at the board somewhere. Either the pin to the socket receptacle, or the socket to the receptacle.

Oh, and make sure the light bulb/led is working before anything.

Reflow the solder on the header pins on the light boards. These boards are notorious for developing cold solder joints over time.

Reflow the solder on the light socket pads. Over time, the brass pads from the socket creates dents in the solder on the board. Reflowing solder erases these dents and makes the connection reliable.

I am about to install a beautiful T2 repro playfield.
But what drills/tools do I need to buy to prepare all the holes etc.?
I think I read about a restoration guy in here who where selling a "pack" with all the tools needed but can't find the thread/person.

That would be from kruzman, send him a PM and he can get you a kit.

Yes do your self a favor and reach out to Ron. I suggest a dremmel to do this works much better than a drill. Once you remove the clear down to the spot where you want to drill you then drill the hole. Saves you from sitting the clear

So dude the key is getting a diamond burr set and a rotary tool (Dremmel) bit u could use a power drill also...and using this to pre drill EVERY hole

You DO NOT want to use drill bits it can twist the clear and cause major damage. Only after using the burr set then if need be u can use drill bits

Exactly, if you remove the clear to expose the wood then you can use a drill bit. For MOST holes you can remove a little more clear than the size of the screw since it will most likely be covered up with a post, screw head, ball guide, etc.

Nifty idea! But if it were me, I would tie in the ground wire to the drop target switch, so it was only lit when the target was up.

I went over these before mezel started selling them. Let me find the post....you guys have a short memory.

#6917 9 days ago

You can buy the targets from Pinball mods (minus led):

Hello all-

Proud new owner of T2. Ive read this whole thread and I can’t find anyone with the Hunter/killer mod in stock. Did I come to the party too late?!
Any advice on how to get one is greatly appreciated!

Not to be offensive, but I did a simple google search and found a bunch.

Wait, did you say mod? What mod?

#6922 3 days ago

My bet would be the plastic that goes under it with the LEDs

#6923 3 days ago

The best H-K mod in my opinion is from Pinbits. I've never seen it in stock on their website so I emailed Pam a couple years ago and they made one for me.

There is another mod available from a guy from the UK on eBay (Judge Dredd?), it is more expensive and looks tacky (again just my opinion)

#6924 3 days ago

Yes. The mod where it is lit up with LED’s. Center of Playfield is very dark-can’t see ball at times
And yes I know how to use google.
