    Picked up a used Zizzle POTC pin for Christmas gift and all the LED's were working. But now the blue one to the far left of the group of five in the mid center of the playfield will not illuminate. I have taken off the bottom of the pin to get access. This LED is like nothing I have seen before. It looks like it has it's own little PCB on it, as do each LED's in the game.
    Anyway to test, repair or find a replacement LED for this? ..hopefully before Christmas?
    Thanks!

    just unsolder and solder in a new one, pay attention to the direction of the "anvil" so you get the polarity correct. had to replace several of them in a couple zizzles. "anvil" being the shape of the metal inside the LED itself, kinda |_/| , if you look very closely. 5mm water clear wide angle (x-color) if you can get them, but the dome tops are ok too. find them ebay or amazon.

    a little easier said than done, they dont give much of anything for wire length. I've snipped them, stripped them 1/8" to solder connect back in and a dab of hot glue to re-insulate it.

    is the type arcade buttons you'll need for good fit and performance, some drilling required. theres also possibility of finding higher quality-capacity momentary switches for mounting on the existing pcb's in the stock button assemblies. wimpy flipper button switches was zizzle killer #1

    No shaker motor in this one (was that guy joking?)..lol
    Thanks for the reply but your two links are to flipper buttons, not the LED's I seek.

    Will these work?

    yup, you can also find assortments of 10 in each color about the same price. time-wise definitely try to buy from a seller here in the USA. C-LED is who I remember.

    and yup to those links being for much better flipper buttons, you'll know why pretty quick!

    Sometimes you can put Mexican jumping beans in a zizzle to simulate a shaker mortar.

    was kinda bummed C-led.com didnt have assortment sample packs like they did a year ago was really nice, 10 each of 6 colors in 5mm was only 3-4 bucks, really handy repairing-modding things. 3rd link is about a perfect topper for zizzle potc. theres lots of easy quick mods for appearance and playability, bone stock they're definite drain-monsters!

    I recently got a marvel zizzle. Can someone point me to a walkthrough on replacing flipper buttons once I buy these above?

    Hi all, new the board. Just picked up a zizzle toy pinball game for the kids, but have to admit it's pretty fun once I installed aftermarket buttons for the flippers. I'm looking to replace a burn out blue LED on the playing field. I have the LEDs mentioned about in this post, but I'm a little weary to start cutting wires as it's all daisy chained and i don't really know what I'm doing. I can solder a little bit, cut and stripe wires, insulated with hot glue...but which wires to cut, use the existing platform the current led is mounted to, etc...which is the ground? why are there four wires? (2 for led and 1 for ground no? )just don't know. Here are a couple pics. If anyone can help me with some tips I'd appreciate it big time! Thanks much.
