Mr. Pinball Tip:

This tip is an addition to the tip that talks about repairing a dot matrix display. Yes it is a good idea to repair the display with conductive epoxy. But I have found something that may work a little better.

Go to your local FORD auto dealer and pick up a REAR WINDOW DEFOGGER STRIP REPAIR KIT. It consists of one bottle of METALLIC PAINT that is made for HIGH and LOW current. I myself work for a FORD dealer in Costa Mesa California that is how I came to know about it. I have repaired my INDIANA JONES and ADDAMS FAMILY displays with this paint. Up till now the repairs have lasted almost TWO YEARS and are STILL GOING. You may E-mail me for the correct part # if your local dealer cannot find it in the computer. HAPPY FIXING :)

P.S. It is also great for repairing all PC boards as well. good luck
