Quoted from Zigzagzag:

Did you do GI, backbox and inserts in LED, or just some ?

I replaced all of my lamps with 2smd frosted sunlight comet LEDs.

It looks perfect.

I am very pleased with the result.

Quoted from Zigzagzag:

PSU is rebuilt, new caps, new connectors, new fuse clips. MPU is now exchanged for one from pinballsolutions.eu - great service and great product. Did I mention the fastest shipping ever ?

Never enough
We do our best when we can

PS
When you say clearcoated, what do you use? your playfield looks incredibly nice.

#2003 23 days ago

Inserts in color as appropriate. GI in warm white. Rainbow colors on the rainbow might be much for some but I think it looks good. I had to use night mode in the phone to get the colors to show better but the image is a little blurry.

I have a local professional car shop do it.
I'm not sure which brand, but they apply 8 coats with sanding in between. It looks and plays amazing !

Displays are nice and bright except for lower right one which had a Bally 6 digit one as a placeholder. Will get a 7 digit Zaccaria one next week.
Voices are English but pitched a bit low. Will probably see if I can pitch them higher.
PF will be cleaned and clearcoated.
LED or old school bulbs - what do you think ?

I LED all my zacs with comets 2smd Daylight frosted for GI's. All are well lit and easy to see and play.

looks good. as long as the GI's are white, you can play it.

What other manufacturer's coil should I get for a Zacc D.40 / S.1200? This is for the kick out hole at the top of Space Shuttle.

I have in my notes that it could be replaced by a Williams or Bally 26-1200. Does that sound right?

At The Pinball Resource there are:

Bally A26-1200, AN26-1200, AO-26-1200, AP-26-1200, AR-26-1200, AT-26-1200, ATT-26-1200

Williams AE1- 26-1200, A2-26-1200, Coil A26-1200, AE26-1200

I have no idea what the difference is with these different coils.

That looks to be correct according to Dave Gersic's coil cross reference:

So which one of those that I had listed is the proper one? There are 7 Bally & 4 Williams listed.

Any 26-1200 coil will work that uses the same bobbin will work. 26 gauge wire @ 1200 turns is what it means. The first 2 letters may be designations for bobbin size and whether there were any diodes on the coil and the direction of the diode. This is also important as you want to match the exact direction of the diode on your new coil with your original. You could blow a transistor if it's backwards. If the original zac coil has no diode, then just remove it.

If you have some other williams or bally games, check them to see if you have any 26-1200 coils in there and compare the bobbin size as well as diode orientation. If you have any that match exactly, order that one.

Hi ,
I’ve just sold my Pinball Champ 82 and in packing it up I smashed the backglass . I’ve advised the buyer and reduced the price accordingly. Id like to print off a translite but can’t find a Hi res photo that I can use . Was wondering if someone has a hi res printable file that I can use for a translite . Happy to compensate .
Thanks
Peter

#2013 12 days ago

did you see if BG resto has the file? He might make that glass.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

BGresto has the file but to make the backglass with shipping to Australia is nearly $700 AUD because of our weak dollar. Was hoping to just print a translite to save some serious money.

#2016 11 days ago

Problem with the translite is you need the masking layer that masks out the numbers/sections that are not lit. I worked on a few of these and had one of them printed on translucent film (2 prints). It wasn't great but better than nothing since I could not find a ROBOT backglass anywhere.

I was able to find a Pinball Champ backglass for second game without a backglass years ago but those days are gone now, plus it took me 6 months. Maybe you can find one in AU to lessen the cost/shipping? No substitute for a beautiful backglass for these games though. Worth the $700 IMO if that was my only option and a brand new glass would be something to really admire.

I really like my new Farfalla backglass. Its gorgeous.

Well worth the money spent.

Devil Rider Powerboard , All Test point voltages Good , 3 bridges are are all good , new CN1 header and connector . MPU is flickering , GI ON , Displays on but flashing

CN5 Voltages are as follows ( Do i have a power failure / over current circuit issue ? ) From top to bottom CN5
Blue 12.6V
Red 5.7
Green 5.2
Blk
Yellow 161
Blk
White 1.859
Red 5 V
Blk
Orange 41

I did notice when i pulled up the playfield a Flipper switch wire had come off and was very close to the highvoltage of the flipper coil
Not sure how to test IC 38 or if this may have caused an issue for the 3081 ?

Any and all help would be much appreciated

I have always loved the artwork on the Zaccaria's and over the years have pursued the flyers for my collection. Some I have in English and Italian. Some are very rare and hard to find. Here's a link if you want to check them out, LMK if you have any that I need:

I think you have much chances that IC38 is dead, it's a classic problem with shorts on the flipper contacts.

My farfalla is clipping off the last word on sentances when people speak.

is this controlled by the pot up on the upper right of the sound card?

Thanx gianfri , I will look at replacing IC38 , can this short from flippers cause other ICs to go or just IC38 .

So my Voltages look good for CN5 ?

Blue 12.6V
Red 5.7
Green 5.2

White 1.859
Red 5 V

Generally only IC38 which makes the flipper to hang

yes, the pot can be adjusted to speed up and slow down voices to fit and not get timed out.
