Quick question, folks.

I’m considering a LoTR as my second pinball machine. My first machine is a Williams Fish Tales.

I’ve watched the Pinball Expert’s somewhat scary videos about the non-user serviceability of later-model Sterns.

Looking at the LoTR manual, it looks like it has bayonet and wedge bulb socket holders, so that the insert/GI bulbs are relatively easy to replace, and an extensive diagnostics menu - much like my Fish Tales. Can you confirm that?

Quoted from LOTR_breath:

That guy is an F'ing joke with an agenda. LOTR is one of the easiest machines to service and in a home environment will have very few issues once dialed in. Just get it and don't look back!

Thanks! That’s what I wanted to know.

I know the Spike Sterns are more expensive and/or harder to service, and I didn’t know if the pre-Spike Sterns were harder to service than my FT. Sounds like LoTR is fine, which is great news!
