Capacitor - 0.047uF 50vdc Ceramic Disc:

Price: $0.49 each

Status: In Stock
(375 Available)



Part #: CAP047
Condition: New
Replacement for disc capacitors used across switch contact points on many early Bally and Stern solid-state pinball games (1977-1985), and some switches on other makes/models as well.

Most original capacitors will go bad and short out after years of use, which can cause false closed switches and intermittent operation in the game, or no function at all. Old dying capacitors are often the cause of erratic switch problems- or phantom switch closures- where the game acts like the ball hit a switch but it really did not.

Great addition to switch contacts if your original disc capacitors have fallen off, or were never installed. Improves performance on devices such as pop bumpers, standup targets, star rollover button switches, tilt mechanisms, and wireform rollover switches that often get only brief (and often undetected) closures by fast-moving balls.

Replaces original disc capacitors rated at 0.050uf 20v (now obsolete), including Bally/Midway part # E-586-80 and Stern Pinball # 130-5001-00. This replacement part may be smaller and different in shape/color than original cap(s) on your game, but functions the same.
