Williams Black Knight Dead Credit/Ball Display

Postby Timinator » Wed Jan 17, 2018 9:38 am

Hey everyone! I'm slowly fixing up some of the issues on my BK, just replaced the upper ball trough switches, and I have one problem that I'm unfamiliar to troubleshoot. The credit/ball display just randomly stopped working. It was fine until last night when I turned it on. I removed and put back on all of the connectors just in case something was loose, but nope. I also disconnected the other displays, I read that it worked for some machines, still nope. Everything looks good on the display itself, no broken solders. Boards are new, Rottendog and Kahout, display connector board on the door is original though. So, where do I go from here? Thanks!

Like Dave said probably the tube like on one of my pins.

If you decide to upgrade to LED and can part with one of your working originals please let me know, I am looking for an original 7 digit Williams display.

Thanks for the advice, so it looks like I'm on to sourcing a replacement display. Won't be looking at LED replacements though.

Hey Tim,
I checked eBay and there is a guy in the USA who is selling a display but has some burn on the right two digits. Might be ok for you and it's $35 + ship. Search '7 digit Williams display' on ebay.
