So, got a " Slam Tilt" reset the other night..Ended up power cycling as it never came back up properly.

Guess I haven't paid attention, but switch certainly isn't on coin door...Any thoughts, as I didn't even nudge when it happened

#13502 2 years ago

Ok, its in the house. The only damage to the box is that little wrinkle in the bottom corner of this pic.

I’ll report back later.

Quoted from docquest:

If you have the LE/SLE topper with the ceiling projector, that lights up under those conditions.

I don't have the topper or a LE/SLE, but I did add in the bat search light to the existing supplied hookup for it. In my mind I thought for some reason that although the orange arrow indicator is lit on the left orbit, being the screen is saying shoot for the bat signal at least the batman logo in the sky from the light would be lit or even the bat signal search light itself. I guess it's as Thundergod76 stated maybe this will be something addressed in the up coming code release when Lyman does some more polishing.

#13504 2 years ago

So i am about 30 minutes into my first plastic protector for the left/right slings. Anyone have insight?

It appears that I need to remove the dome and led strip below it? It wont unscrew. I’ll keep trying.

Edit: got em on. Now on to cliffys, inner side art, or headphone kit.

I could use some insight on installing the penguin scoop cliffy.

#13506 2 years ago

Looks like i have a tiny chuck torn up on my playfield.

This is the kind of stupid shit that has been happening all day. Either the bolts sent with the shaker motor are 1/4” too short, or I need to move this ground strap, from under where it appears the shaker motor goes. Honestly I may need longer bolts anyway. When I drop them in their holes for testing, 1 or 2 turns and they are tight. When I attempted the shaker motor install over the ground strap, only 1 bolt would tighten. The other 3 spun freely.

#13508 2 years ago

I had some longer bolts on hand and went with those.

Any reason I would need this conn3ctor with a capacitor ?

You don't need to move the ground strap. It's probably there on purpose for grounding.

Ok, I’ve owned the game for 8 hours. It is time to power it on. Got the side rails, most cliffys (gotta do the shooter lane still), plastics, inside side art, crane add on, speaker kit. Maybe more, I’m tired. Gonna play for a bit.

How d9 I set it for freeplay?

Quoted from TronGuy:

May be one of the fix kits that wasn’t installed at the factory. Guessing the shaker motor one (and you don’t have a shaker motor). See if you have one inline to the shaker motor (if you have one) and see service bulletin 184.

Could also be an uninstalled one for the node board fix kit.

#13512 2 years ago

I installed a shaker motor. It does not currently any capacitor, diode, resistor between it and its connection to power.

Here’s a picture of where the capacitor goes on the board on the side of the cabinet from the shaker... (sorry it was quick and dirty).

It is specifically recommend by Stern to address electrical noise on the 48v power source.

Notice: When using the Genuine Authorized Stern Shaker Motor Kit #502-5027-01 on Spike 1 and Spike 2 system games, it is required that the Cabinet Node Capacitor Kit be installed. This additional capacitor prevents mysterious SLAM TILT switch activations from occurring.

Damn. I'd be pissed.

On a side note, I'm totally jealous. I haven't gotten mine yet. When did you order?

#13516 2 years ago

OK,this is the first one I've seen,and no pics of the backbox art!!also a Julie Newmar signed Batman Card! So,Stern could possibly put out a Joker,Penguin,Riddler,model with accompanying signed cards!!And by the way,TronGuy,a lot of us got our games totally fubar,right out of box!! I couldn't play mine for three weeks after it arrived cause the turntable was totally broke,among other things!!! Good to see Stern still has NO QC at all!!!! Go Stern

I'm confused by this pic. My Batman and my Ghostbusters, for that matter, had the entire inside of the cab sprayed black. You seem to have no paint on your bottom panel. Guess Stern is using multiple cab mfgrs.

all of my NIB sterns have been painted black on the inside (even my previous BM66) but my Catwoman edition is the first I've seen with the raw wood bottom on the inside.

Quoted from RetroGamerJP:

I believe when stern was using press boards on the bottoms they were painted black, now with real wood they are left natural. I guess they are trying to say "Hey look, we are increasing our build quality" statement.

I will get a pic of the side art. The backglass has some fine print saying something to the effect of:

CATWOMAN SIGNATURE EDITION

#13522 2 years ago

Just ordered my first NiB - Catwoman signature series. The family is excited! Can’t wait to get it

#13523 2 years ago

Im curious, for those who have the Catwomen edition, do they all have signed cards by Julie Newmar? Or is it just a select few? Also, did they take the catwomen scenes out that have Eartha Kitt in them?

It’s the Catwoman Premium.

They had her sign cards in 100 of them - so don’t be bummed if yours has no signature.

I would hate to see the pinball hobby fall to the “I bought it because it was signed by a B list celebrity” level ...

Oh wait ... maybe we are already there ...

Actually ... it was funny a few years back. Gary Stern came to NZ and was at my place. He had some signed translites to give away - the local Stern guy said “do you want Gary to sign your games?”

“Ummmm ... no ... not really”. Lol

I did win a TWD translite though!

What method did you use to install the inside side art? Did you remove the playfield?

Or maybe it has to do with UL certification.

#13529 2 years ago
Quoted from beefzap:

No, I an a risk taker. I cleaned the sides of the cab with some rapid tac and a paper towel.
Then I pulled the backing off of the pinblades and sprayed the sticky side pretty heavily with rapid tac. Shoved them in the cab with the playfield down and figured it out. I had a hand squeegee ready when needed to flatten the art. At least twice on both sides I yanked it up after 5 minutes because I wasn’t happy with the placement. Another spray down of rapid tac and back in it went.

Yep, all preference and the signature for the same price did influence me buying it. I was going to get one anyway so i bought it a little sooner than planned. If they charged more for the signature I would of just bought the standard.

I made sure it was the 100 of the Signature series. It’s not my first pin just my first NiB.

Quoted from thundergod76:

In the back box I assume?

I’ll check.

Thanks!

I fixed the rear captive ball. The way I installed the tiny square cliffy may have been off. I tweaked the lever to the microswitch as well as installing that cliffy a little better.

I sent a picture to classic game rooms (place I bought it from). ignored. He responded to other things.

Maybe this will be obvious to some, but the node boards not responding is because the coin door was openwhich shuts off some HV. When I pulled the interlock (with coin door open), all was back to normal.

Strange... Does your game have an interlock switch? They removed those switches starting with GOT. My friends Batman does not have an interlock.
Please post a picture of it. Did it came that way from factory? Whats your build date?

#13540 2 years ago

For those modders who want a catwoman hallmark ornament the ornament factory is doing a 33% off sale with code "SUMMER33". It says they have limited quantity of catwoman left. The discount gets the pre-shipping price down to about $24 which is less than what you usually see them for on ebay.

Keeps showing in stock then when adding to cart it's out of stock.

It's on the back of your lower cabinet not the backbox. My machine has a build date of Aug 2018 and no interlock switch.

#13545 2 years ago

A game like BM66 probably should have a safety interlock switch so the turntable doesn't move and hand cause injury. It's also a PITA troubleshooting some switches in test mode because coils stay active (balls release etc).

You might be able to get riddler cheaper on ebay. Catwoman seems to be the one that's is getting harder to find at a decent price.

This fall they will be releasing Batgirl as well as the Batboat.

#13548 2 years ago

This may be a dumb question, but did Stern have those cards rerun or did they shell out for a bunch of sealed sets of 30 year old cards? I've been researching and these cards were reissued in 1989.

#13550 2 years ago

Last call. If you’re on the fence about getting a game, contact your distributor.

All Catwoman Edition games will include a signed card, not just the first 100.
