  • [Found] - Needing Bally 6 & 7 Digit Gas Displays

    Needing 1 of each, or maybe someone has swapped out a set for LED displays and may be willing to sell the set ?

    Before you replace them, you've rebuilt your high voltage section right?

      It's on the list but no, not yet.
      They displays have been on and rebuilding the HV section can't repair the damage in the glass.

        Yeah you just don't want to forget and burn the others or any new ones.

          absolutely, I run mine at about 165VDC.

          these are needed for a friend.

            I thought the normal voltage was 192 volts? Might need to turn mine down.

              .
              I always ran mine at around 160v, until I saw Quench recently mention (on a Pinside post) that at a lower voltage like 160v puts more unnecessary stress on the HV transistors & they heat up more - recommends 180v.

                Normally always set them up at 165V, although some displays will flicker at that. The lower the voltage the longer the glass lasts, wouldn't worry too much about the HV transistors, they can be replaced cheaply unlike the display glasses.
