Hi All,

I see quite a few different backboards and side blades, the pictures provided in this listing are not the best but it appears that there have been quite a few buyers.

Guess I'm looking for opinions on choices, please share any photos you might have.

Hi All,

Our TZ Translite is getting old and has a few blemishes, it's like 150 in dog years. I searched around and only could find a translite on ebay and a mirrored one. All the typical vendors seem to be out of stock.

The mirrored one looks pretty cool, but I can't find anyone mentioning it in the TZ Owners thread. Does anyone have any experience with either of these two vendors or have another they would recommend?

Quoted from Reznnate:

CPR backglass

reznnate Which is the CPR Backglass? I haven't found that one.

Thank you for your reply!

rdoyle1978 and mjannusch thank you for your replies, I guess I'll hold off until I hear your thoughts with brighter LEDs. Please message me if you make the swap to brigher leds and like the mirrored one after that. It sure looks cool with the mirroring.

Hello to those Lost in the Zone!

Going to upgrade to a ColorDMD, did you go with LED or LCD?


#7272 1 year ago
Quoted from ramegoom:

I went with LCD on all of my pins. I like the pixel "smoothing" that goes along with LCD, as compared to LED. And the LCDs run cooler and use less power.
More a matter of preference I guess.

I didn't realize that the lcd used less power.


#7275 1 year ago

Thanks for the replies all. I appreciate it! We've had this TZ for 21 years and just started to mod it a bit and want to be sure to make the right choice!

All we've done so far is LED's and the gumball led kit with gumballs of course. Really want the TV w/sound on ebay, but pinsound/new speakers and the ColorDMD have to come first.

I was ready to buy Kahr daughterboard.


But I reseated everything I could get my hands on including the ROMS and it's been good ever since. I'm slowly but surely replacing all the old Molex connectors as many of ours were pretty ugly.

Quoted from PinballT:

Just got TZ back in the house. Took me a while but glad to get one back. Missed it. I was thinking of putting the tv mod in. There is a few out there. What is the best one for the beat price? Is it hard to install?

We've had ours in and out of storage over the last 21 years, so I know how you feel.

I think this is the slickest and best TV mod out there. I've been eyeing it for quite some time, but the wife has a keen eye on our checkbook after most recent pinball purchase

He also has one with sound.


#7300 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballT:

Thanks Mike! That one does look really nice. I believe it is the same one that is in Pinside market. I went ahead a pulled the trigger. My wife is going to get me but it's going to be a really cool mod. Thanks again!

Did you opt for the one with sound or not?


#7302 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballT:

Yeah. I went all out.

Cool, have fun!

Quoted from Mikespinball:

Hey, can someone help me out. I read through this whole post and saw a post for a expansion board for all the added mods you add to the TZ. It separates them from your driver board. I didn't write down. Can someone redirect me to where to purchase one from.

Not really an expansion board, but this was the one I had my eye on if you didn't want it drawing power from an already overloaded machine.

Don't know if everyone follows every post by HEP, but for those that don't here is an amazing blacked out TZ.


#7361 1 year ago
Quoted from Tranquilize:OMG.... .... ... That is the BEST TZ I've ever seen. The black hardware is just deadly.

Every HEP TZ is likely the best TZ we've ever seen. This one certainly stands out from the other's Chris has done that's for sure!
