Not sure about Stern because I have not received a NIB from them. I heard JJP is going to be three years.
Umm Sorry wrong.. I heard this and had to go look this up my self cause thats INSANE to be able to cover it that long.
From JJP Website
Q- What is your Warranty and what does it cover?

1-800-kickers for stern/sega/de if i do believe so myself?
1-800-Kickers helped me on JP.. I had No Upper p/f GI's .. My Pin Tech was in the hospital @ the Tyme, anyway they Guided me thru Several Test's .. Final Result ( I had a Bad Bridge Rectifier )
Awesome service w/ that 800 #
Also , CoinTaker told me if I Ever have a prob- w/ my NIB AC/DC Prem- ( After I get it that is )
I should Go thru him !! ( He Will be my Customer Service ) So I Can't Vote just Yet...
Ohh Yea,,, Premium !! I already paid 1/2 of the cost as a deposit.. Look's Like I'll be Play-n 1 in Texas B-4 I get mine tho.. Hmmm!! Could be a Good tyme to Judge it and see if it's Worth 6K.
Anyone Ever Put a Deposit down on a NIB ,, then played 1 before Yr's was purchased & Ship'd , and didn't like it and Asked for Yr deposit back ? Seem's Fair to me if you Did !!
Thanks in advance.
@BR - Premuim pics looks sick. I will probably buy it later. Just cant wait. Pro rocks too.
The NEW videos Im seeing today, (with experienced players!) shows a great game with FAST challenging game play and FLOOOOOW!! Lots of it. Back handed ramp shots. Plus those TNT targets will slap you in the face and make you want more.
Re TF pro......from the manual:
Printed circuit boards psb's: 2 months
Dot matrix display pcb: 9 months
Warranty periods are effective from the initial date of shipment from seller to its authorized distributors.
Wow...thought it was a year.
Have over 600 plays and nothing has gone wrong....flippers are as strong as day 1, canyon fires as fast as first play...only one bulb burned out.
Pat helped him
Yes, Patrick Powers and Chas in Tech Support are the front line for Stern. Gary probably has no idea just how valuable they are! I have dealt with Pat on many occasions and he is just superb to work with. To me, Stern has terrible public relations, and Pat IS their only public relations! I hope he is appreciated by G.S. One of the few good images I have of Stern is Pat!!!
Stern/Sega has always had very good tech support. Although when my NIB LOTR LE flipper transistors fried (at 2 and 7 months or so), I didn't bother with tech support and just replaced the transistors myself. Saved a lot of time and hassle. But when the gold lockdown and siderails tarnished within a month (my hands were clean!), they sent new replacements.
