Use LED lamps?

Postby 5 cent player » Wed Jan 27, 2016 8:44 pm

Has anyone experimented with LED lighs in your (Jennings) machines?

Any information good or bad?

I have thought about trying some of the LED's used and sold by the pinball folks due to the heat issues with standard filament lamps.

A good thing for you if you keep the machine for yourself but if you try and sell it with LED bulbs you may find buyers balking at having non original equipment. As for me if I seen those style bulbs in the machine I'd deduct $150. just for the aggravation of having to change all those bulbs

Yea, you could warm your lunch on my Jennings once the lights have been on for a while.

If I were to swap out to LED bulbs, anyone have a stock number?

My Star Chief ran unbelievably hot with the incandescent bulbs. I have changed them out for LEDs (easy) and am very pleased with the results. Runs cool now. I have noticed some have a minor strobe effect, guessing non rectified a/c. (Will look to replace those). I found an online pinball machine supplier, but have now sourced the bulbs at the local flea market. If you do this modification, you might want to pay attention to the bulb temperature (meaning shade of white) behind the white plastic on the “Chief” it has a yellow tint (these are the strobey ones). Wondering if the a/c hence strobe save me from polarity issues.
