    Default How to access bulbs in older Sankyo

    I'm a newbie but have been repairing EM pinball machines for over 20 years. For the life of me I cannot figure out how to access the light bulbs to check or change them. Do the lens covers pop off somehow? There is no access from the rear.
    Thanks in advance.

    Here's a picture of the backside. Are there going to be lights behind every lens cover on the front? There are 7 unique lens covers, the upper left and right orange and then the 5 arcing colors on the right side.pachinko2.JPG

    I see only 2 bulbs. 1 for low ball in the upper front right and 1 in the center feature for win. Not uncommon for the vintage to have lenses with no lights.

    its a bit of a guess but im thinking you should use a 9 volt battery and use the white and black/blue wires on your machine..

    the advantage of low voltage is no real risk or shock or damage..

    Red and white, no need for black. Polarity does not matter.
