Can anyone tell me why my new to me LE would start selecting the track automatically for eacdh player on the start of a game, but when you complete or fail a mode you can then select your next mode as normal? I thought it may be the smart button so adjusted it so it doesn't work, but it can't be.

A playfield switch stuck on somewhere?

Run the switch tests and check it out ...

Nope its closed. I checked the connections on the board. I don't want to void the warranty.....waiting on email back from Stern

My left scoop sporadically will not register when hit. When it fails, the machine will then run through the ball search and kick the ball out and the scoop will then work for the next several times when hit. It looks like the correct contact is being made when it fails to work and no physical adjustments are needed for it to work the next several times. I'd say it works 90% of the time, but that 10% fail rate seems to come at the worst times, usually when Select Track is lit. Any ideas on what may be causing this?

#3008 8 days ago

Mine was a wire came off the switch.
Scoop switch 4.95

Has anyone here added PinStadium lights ?? I’m thinking about adding a UV light.. and from what I understand one of their kits has it.

Thanks !

I'd adjust the switch to activate sooner. Loosen the switch mounting screws and rotate the switch so the blade is further into the scoop.

Maybe trace the switch wires back to the node board and reseat the connector

If that doesn't do it, I'd try a new switch.

Someone do green.
I need to compare.

Nice mod.

#3015 7 days ago

Starting to think about picking up an Aerosmith Pro. Any particular issues or mods to be on the lookout for?

#3016 7 days ago

Pick up a few spare scoop switches.
A few sets of balls.
Plastic protectors.
I keep mine middle level.
Still get many airballs off the magnet.

I planned long term ownership and bought a spare toybox lid, inner liner and jacky.

Where did you buy the toy box lid at?

Thanks for the response...I'll give it a try.

Yup, I swapped over one of my Pinstadiums into my Aerosmith and it looks fantastic.

Thank you Schwaggs. Extending the blade further into the scoop solved the problem! The ball had been slipping past and landing under the blade 1 out of 10 shots.

On a new game, I'd be surprised if this was it. However, according to Stern's Core Node Stabilization Kit instructions, Symtom: "Upon powering up the game, the message “LOCATING NODE BOARD / 8 / NODE NOT FOUND” is displayed on the LCD display."
Explanation: "The node board has lost its 6v power source and lost communication with the CPU board."

That is from their instructions available at:
https://sternpinball.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Stern-SB189.pdf

I had put that kit in my game when I got it. So review those instructions, and have a really close look at D9 on the node board near the trough. Also obviously checking the cables there.

What did the powder coating cost?

#3027 3 days ago

If anyone has a broken jacky head or can print one, let me know. It doesn't need to be complete even.

#3028 2 days ago

The head on spring is available from stern.
Pinball life (I think)....
Pretty sure it is around $100
