Quoted from HemiOrange09:

If anyone is interested in the cannon mod that Matt from BAC and I do together, I have a few in stock and ready to go. Here is the link to my website to order one.

After 7 years my cannon is binding near the end of its travel. The cannon shaft has quite a bit of up-down play and when I went to adjust it, I could not get the set screw loose even with heat. It must have moved on the shaft to cause the problem but the screw is on with a form of loctite.

Now, I have read about the set screw on the motor but not the cannon shaft which makes it impossible to get the cannon assembly off.

Has anyone come up with a easier answer than drilling it out? Anyone think a left hand drill bit might do it?

Thanks for any clues.

Instead of heat, try freezing it.

I'm having trouble installing Chroma 4.2 update

I'm currently on 3.3

Have tried 2 known good sticks, Confirmed file name chroma.rom

I install stick, press and hold left tact sw, display goes blank, I wait and wait a few minutes.

Nothing happens, power cycle pin, still stuck on 3.3

What's going on ?

Check your board type; it might not be a Chroma board. Sounds like the problem I had, but it turned out I had a pre-Chroma ColorDMD board, so I had to install the normal ColorDMD code rather than the Chroma code. That might be your issue.

Per instructions on the ColorDMD website at this url:
http://www.colordmd.com/support_firmware_chroma.html
No power cycling is required...
:
Instructions for Updating Firmware
Click on the appropriate game ROM file above. (new AC/DC Premium/LE in our case)
Save the ROM file to a USB flash drive as "CHROMA.ROM". Saved file name must match EXACTLY!
Drive must be formatted as MS FAT32. Most new drives come formatted as MS FAT32 from the manufacturer.
(If you are using a MAC or other Apple computer, could be special procedures to format for FAT32)
Turn game on and install flash drive into ColorDMD USB port.
Press and hold the left button for 5 seconds until the backlight turns off.
Wait for the backlight to turn back on (about 30 seconds).
If the backlight does not turn on and the PROG light is repeatedly blinking, the CHROMA.ROM file was not found on the thumb drive. Please check the file name.
Remove the flash drive.
After installation, you can press the right button to verify that the ROM is now showing the correct version (for example, AFM2 2.0). If the product key is showing the words 'KEY INVALID' followed by eight blank spaces, it will need to be manually entered. This step is normally not required unless unlocking a display for the first time.

If that procedure did not work, I would contact ColorDMD technical support at info@colordmd.com to start with...

The new game room is close enough to done that I took the machine out of its mummy wrap. Despite the plastic sheet and tape, over the fleece blanket wrapped pin, it still looks like it needs a good cleaning. Time to search the forums for tips about cleaning these things. Yup, still noob.

Posting for reference.
tl;dr
IRL2910 is a good replacement for the stock NXP buk9529 MOSFETS.

I had my dancing band coil lock up and in addition to adding a nice smoke show it also killed the drive transistor. When I looked into a replacement, it turns out the game uses a unique MOSFET instead of the typical TIP transistor. And of course it is an obsolete and unavailable part. After studying a few datasheets, I found a good replacement. The original component is NXP buk9529. There are four of these on the auxiliary driver board 520-5325-00 (https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/520-5325-00) labeled as Q1-Q4 (the ones with the giant heatsinks). They control the bell magnet, dancing band and two other things I don't remember. The replacement part is Infineon IRL2910 (https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/942-IRL2910PBF). To feed my neurotic tendencies, I also added a little dab of thermal paste to the heatsink interface on install. I am happy to say it all works as expected and the little dancing guys are back at it. I hope this info comes in handy.

Hi guys.... Pretty much a newbie to all things pin but have my first machine recently ACDC Luci Premium...learning curve would be an understatement! I was hoping for any help/advice on protecting the plastics. Recently snapped a piece off the printed plastic above the TNT targets (right on the screw hole too) so it’s kinda flopping around during game play. Also another spot on a bumper closer to under the bell. Sorry if I have the terminology wrong..... but I’ll get there . I’ve seen a few clear plastic protectors online...tho typically sold out. If anyone has similar issues or any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..... Cheers!

#2513 24 days ago

The bad news is that typically, you cannot purchase one plastic piece without purchasing the entire set, as far as I know.
The good news is that you can get the complete set here, as well as some other places probably:
https://www.pinballlife.com/acdc-le-premium-playfield-plastics-set.html
On the protectors, I purchased a set off ebay from Germany...
This is an example:
ebay.com link » Plastic Protectors Set For Stern Ac Dc Pro Premium Le Pinball Machine
I am sure that there are other places you can get the protectors also, but I did get the set I needed in about a month...

I am sure my attract mode has suddenly speeded up.

Has this happened to anyone else?

I remember my TWD did this and there was a fix for it.

#2516 12 days ago

So, it is actually flickering GI that is the issue.

And found this thread for anyone else with an issue.

Hey All. Just bought an AC/DC Premier Vault recently. This is my first pinball machine and absolutely love it. Now having fun adding mods to it. Looking to get a stage roof, cpr9999 is willing to make another batch but needs 10 people to commit. Any one else interested?

#2519 3 days ago

I may be in for the stage roof. How much do they cost?

#2520 1 day ago

Is there an eject ball power setting like on other Stern pinballs?
