Hi all. I'm hoping someone can help me please with some details (beyond the basics) about the wiring connectors when removing the upper playfield. I've seen lots of posts in this thread where TSPP owners have said that removing the upper playfield is very easy; some posts/people even have said (I think) that the wiring can remain connected. In addition to reading the posts before trying it myself, I also read the inside cover of the manual. I searched for You Tube videos too but didn't find any.
I gave it a whirl, and the thumb screws and lifting the living room a little bit were in fact quite easy, just as advertised. But here's the challenge I encountered. On my machine, the main wiring bundle leading from the upper playfield through the access hole to below the main playfield is too snug to give me enough play once I've removed the thumb screws and cleared the living room more than a couple of inches off of the posts. I don't get nearly enough clearance to change out all of the bulbs (I'm doing an LED conversion) or to install my Cliffy's on the Treehouse Ramp and the Unobtanium Ramp.
The manual and several posts speak of three wiring connectors; to label them for reconnection matching and then to disconnect them. But nobody, not even the manual as far as I can tell, details more than that. I believe I've identified two of them; the TV wiring for sure (that one's clear) and one other, which is a small bundle. What I can't figure out after searching is how to disconnect the main, large wiring bundle. I don't see any connector for it. On my machine, it travels through the access hole and then is zip-tied into a big knot of several other wiring bundles. See photos below. Even if I were to clip the zip ties, I'm just not seeing a single main connector anywhere. I don't want to clip the zips before I know, as a lot of other wiring bundles are going to free up when I do.
If anyone can decipher my wiring from the photos I posted, and then could maybe post a photo or two of their own and/or describe in detail how to undo this wiring, I'd be extremely grateful. Thanks in advance!
