Like all ST25 games mine has the shorted out chase lights. I repairedBrian,
the driver board, simple fix, by replacing the 2 ICs (about $2 in
parts). I also repaired the light string by using electrical tape to
better insulate the common +12V wire. When it was all working I
decided it wasn't that pretty after all... it seems the electrical
tape blocked some of the light.
I called a rope light manufacturer in China and had them build me a 4-
wire, 12V roll of blue "super chasing" lights with a +12V positive
common ground. Of course the minimum quantity was huge, so now I
guess I'm in the "pinball mod" business.
The new lights are fantastic. They are super bright. The rope light
is clear and about double the original diameter. Although larger, it
does fit perfectly under the lip of the ramp and does not appear
bulky. The clear rope light tube is much nicer looking than the
original blue.. when lit the blue lights really stand out. I reckon I
can make about 20 light rope sets. If you are not good at soldering
I'll even patch your board up for you like new.
Anyway, just trying to figure out if there is any interest. Email me
if you want a set. I'm thinking I'll sell them for about $125 for the
set and $50 if you want me to rebuild your board. Sorry they are so
pricey.. I had to pay a hefty tooling charge to get the rope lights
made to spec and have the roll shipped. Yes $50 is pricey to solder
in 2 chips..but this isnt my day job and anything less I can't be bothered... unless you're a cute girl and willing to go on a date with me..then it's free.
