Anyone buying used LEDs?

Postby Bagdad » Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:39 am

Is there a market for used LEDs?

I plan to change all the LEDs in my new machine, and was wondering if there is people that could be interested of buying the whole pack of LEDs that was in there.

(Also have a bag of "old " LEDs that was originaly in my Diner)

Else, I'll just leave them in the wardrobe forever... 8-)

You can sell anything, especially since LEDs don't degrade.
Are you installing better LEDs or going back to incandescent?

Nice, it will help me swallow the price for the LED kit.

Might buy the PinballBulbs kit directly, or create my own Comet kit. Not 100% conviced yet...

...Mais c'est sur que je les changes, c'est le bordel ce qui a la dedans... :lol:

What I have right now (From my Diner) is a mix of everything; SMDs, single LED, Flashers, colors, frosted, clear, no domes, incandecents...etc... :shock:

For the Hurricane, you'll have to wait until I install the kit tho, which might not be in the near future... (These are mosly frosted/clear/no domes single Cool white SMDs)

I can take picture and make a list of what I have in the meantime...

I heard you pay a premium for a pre-assembled LED kit. I never tried to confirm.
If you go to the trouble of upgrading your LEDs, make sure they are non-ghosting.

Ok Thanks. I'll probably take them. I have a few games I need to upgrade to LED and wouldn't mind different varieties to try out so please let me know and we can work something out.

It's very typical to leave the bulbs for flashers since replacing them with LEDs often requires an expensive high quality non-ghosting multisegment diode or cutting the warm up resistor.
Besides, the flasher are blinding and you can't tell the difference. I have regular bulbs for flashers in my F14 and Stargate.

Some people leave the GI incandescent to save money, especially if you want your GI white.

That is what I want to confirm. Pinballbulbs kits comes with LED strips and Spotlights, which sells for 20/25Usd each on their website... So my questions is, Do I make a kit myself and buy them separaly or just buy the kit and "save money"...I'm evaluating that right now...

Hurricane is supposed to be a "non-ghosting" machine...

On my Diner I changed all of them, for the pink flashdomes, pink flashers made a HUGE difference... Au revoir ostie de jaune laite...

I might do this one day. I have 3 flashers for the radar display on my F14 and they are right next to 7 super white DEL inserts. You can tell the flashers are yellow.
You wanted pink light, or pink turns to white by some bizarre physics of the eye?

C'est des pink/purples que j'ai mis...C'est vrai par contre que les LEDs roses tendent à looker blanches à mon gout...

On voit ici les 2 flashers (à droite) allumés. Ça projette même du mauve sur le mur... :lol:
