I was changing out bulbs yesterday in the backbox of my farfalla & noticed when I shut it that the 3rd digit of one of my score displays was totally out. Not dim but just completely blank, the displays are otherwise solid & perfect on this game. Solder joints are all good on the connector. on the board side of things & not sure if I can repair from under the glass & since I was opening & closing the door, I do worry that something could have cracked inside? Could a component have gone bad? Transistors seem to test ok. Would appreciate any help. Thanks!

I just had the same issue on a Time Machine I am working on, turn out to be the glass, the connection at the edge under the glass goes bad. you can usually tell by the burn marks, some times you can dremel out the glass with a diamond bit and use some conductive glue to restore the connection, I just replaced mine with a 7 digit display glass out of a bally, glass in Bally's and Williams are compatible, ( glass only)

Never did anything like that before. Where could I get just the replacement glass? & a guide on how to replace it?
