Has anyone had issues with either of the following from time to time?

1. Sometimes the ball gets stuck at the top of the plunger lane, right before it falls onto the playfield. I can give it a simple bump and its fine, but that's not so easy for my 5 year old son to do. This happens during multiball mode when the ball is being sent out NOT when its done manually with the plunger.

2. Sometimes when the ball goes to the left just past the "AXE" area above the pop bumpers, where you'd go to change the song IF you were in that mode (and in this instance I am NOT) it will come FLYING out and shoot all the way down the right outlane as fast as a bullet. I could be imagining this, but it almost seems to only happen if i hit the flipper JUST when it goes into the "change song" area. Normally it just shoots it out and will fall into the A, X, or E lane.

Anyone else seeing this?

For #2, it sounds like to are activating the super skill shot. If you have the right flipper pressed while it's in the juke box, it will fly out as described. If you then hit a lit shot, it will award 2 VIP passes (instead of the one from the flashing rollover).

Not seeing these issues, but I sometimes get balls that get stuck on the TNT and BIB drop target areas (when dropped) and have to wait for ball search to knock it back into play.

Lol, you found the super skill shot.

For #1, I would ensure the machine is level. If it is, changing the pitch one way or another might be a work around.

Me neither, I'm gonna have to check that out. Hold the right flipper while plunging the ball up to that saucer?

When the ball is launched, then "caught", hold the right flipper and it'll come flying out.

Caught as in sitting in the top saucer?

Yup. It'll come rocketing back to the right flipper, and you'll have 4 flashing arrows to shoot for the Super Skill Shot. Nice!

And you will be awarded with *two* passes instead of one.

Oops, I meant one of 5 flashing arrows to shoot for
