Quoted from simonlindsay:

Thanks to everyone for the helpful advice for the repair of my TZ power board - it is really appreciated. My wife and I fly to the U.S.A. on Wednesday and will be taking in some pinball games in SF and some touristy stuff, the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, a quick visit to Pinball Wizard in SLC and up to Pinballmania in Washington Terrace as well as Yosemite NP, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, The Arches NP and hopefully see some fall colours in our old stomping ground around the ski resorts of Ogden, UT.
I will resume the task of sorting out my TZ power board when I return to the U.K.

Wow, what a fantastic trip! My wife and I loved visiting San Fran, Zion, Grand Teton, etc. on trips over the years. I’m envious.

Quoted from Redfive05:

Well... looks like not only am I in the TZ Owners Club, but now I'm in the Ingo Vaporware Club as well.
Ordered one of these in late June, heard nothing.
Waited a month and asked when they thought it would ship, was told in two weeks.
Contacted them today and was told first I needed to decide what shipping I was going to pick: $17 and it would take up to two months without tracking or $47 with tracking that might take up to 3 weeks. When I told them I already selected the $17 shipping in July I was then told that they had held off shipping because they "sent a few without tracking numbers and 2 didn't arrive and 3 took 2 months, so we haven't shipped"
It's not the wait I'm bothered by, its the lack of communication and the false promise of two weeks.
I Just asked for a refund

Been waiting a year for 2, haven't had the energy to start emailing. If he's sending them I don't see any traffic on pinside about anyone getting them or them being lost in the mail.

I think this guy was making them at one time. Might want to reach out to him.

Got my refund this morning.

Wish I knew what the real issue was.... if its because of supply chain issues on the optos I have 4 new original QVE11233.086 and 10 new QVE11233 sitting in a bin in my workshop. I would have gladly take the board minus the optos

Just buy the Casper. It works great and is cheaper. Marco and PBL have it. And you’ll have it before the weekend!

Here's my issue with the Casper board.... I don't like LEDs. I really prefer the warm glow of Incandescents. I will use LEDs where appropriate/needed, so I'm ok with them in the TZ Clock, But I'm worried that the "Blanket LEDs" in the Casper board will be overwhelming, especially since my TZ is still 95% Incandescent.

In my opinion both TZ and Adams Family are painfully too dark with incandescent bulbs. Those two games really benefit from LEDs. Just replace your bulbs with frosted warm or sunlight bulbs. That will create more light with the same look. The Casper board will then blend perfectly. LED lighting has really improved over the last 5 years or so.

It’s nothing fancy but it works as it should. I’m happy with it.

I added PinStatuims and tried to match the color of the glow of sunlight white. Added the flasher on Rocket shot. Too Minimize the flash light show as much as possible. It was a lot of money for increased lighting. Oh well, I’m happy.

Just got my TZ about a month ago. In this light housing over the mini playfield, I have 2 led lights hooked up. However, the is this 3rd light pictured.

Where do I find one and what model of light is it?

Thanks!
Richard

#906 or #912 light bulb. Any pinball parts places should have it.
