General Illumination Bulb
This article covers the generalized installation of the GI. This set of instructions applies to many games, and many of our mods. If you were referred here by an installation article for a specific mod, note that the pictures may look slightly different from your game. Refer to the mod instructions for which bulb location to use (there are many different GI bulbs with different colors).
You may actually use a different GI bulb than the instructions require. However, the replacement bulbs that we send out are white in color. So make sure when you remove a factory bulb to make sure that it is the same color (white). This will not impact play of the game but it will impact the factory lighting on the playfield!
- Locate the GI bulb that applies to your installation. Utilize a hex nut driver to remove the factory bulb. (Note: photo shows replacement bulb already installed).
- Remove the existing bulb by pushing in slightly while twisting and replace with the bulb provided. Push in and twist until it locks into place. You can also adjust the height of the bulbs dome so that it is closer to the top of the bayonet. Reattach the bayonet to the bottom of the playfield.
- Lower the playfield and turn on your games power to test functionality. If some the lights do not function, please see this support article.
