Bally/Stern 6-Digit Display Driver Kit

Parts shown in picture may be replaced with a compatible substitute

There are many different types of Stern displays floating around, and I've only seen a couple of them, and neither were marked very well with part numbers. So, if your Stern display looks like this or this, then I can assure you the parts in this kit are the proper components. If you have a different display, then I can not promise anything and you buy this kit at your own risk. They probably are the right components, but since I've never looked at any other Stern displays, I can not say for sure.

Price: $7.00 - buy 4 kits and get the 5th kit free!

Note: This kit will NOT help you if your display glass is broken (check the nipple on the back side too), there are burn marks on the display segments, or there are major problems with the circuit board.

Price: $6.00 each, or $27.00 for five kits

Add a 24-pin row of 0.156" header pins for $2.00 each.

Bally/Stern Display Driver Resistor Kit

Parts shown in picture may be replaced with a compatible substitute
If your Stern display driver has 100K Ohm, 1/4 Watt resistors for R1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and R11, here's a kit of 1/2 Watt replacements. Often the 1/4 Watt size is just not enough and they get stressed and damaged. Replacing them with 1/2 Watters will make your displays better and may just solve your problems. Even if your displays are working fine, it's still a good idea to upgrade them to the 1/2 Watt size.

This kit contains 40 resistors, enough to upgrade all 5 of your displays, or stock up and buy 100.

Price: $2.00, or 100 resistors for $4.00

Bally/Stern Solenoid Driver Kit #3

Parts shown in picture may be replaced with a compatible substitute
Some folks don't need the 0.002uF, 3KV capacitors for their Stern SDU solenoid driver, and unless there's obvious signs of stress, or they're swollen or missing, you probably don't need to replace them. So here's another kit with plenty of driver transistors and the associated resistors and diodes, plus an additional 10 diodes for coils and such, but no capacitors.

VS-100 Speech board



Parts shown in picture may be replaced with a compatible substitute

Here's a nice set of high quality capacitors custom made for Big Daddy Enterprises. This kit contains all the sound related electrolytic capacitors on your
Stern SB-300 Sound board. Some of these capacitors are rated at a higher voltage than the originals but will work fine.
If your sounds are fuzzy, weak, or sound is nonexistent, this may fix your problem.

A detailed technical article about this board can be found here by clicking here

Includes the following:

 

You may want to check your 9 pin .156 header row at J2 and J3. Many of the boards I've examined have slight burn
marks from power stress at J2 (12 volts). Order on the .156 connector page (order the 10 pin and snip off the extra).

Be aware the S14001A chip is rare and near impossible to find, be careful.

Includes the following:

* I chose Tantalums because of stock, but they also have a better life. Please note the small + sign showing polarity.
** Schematics show 470uf, two examples show 1500uf
