Quoted from Pale_Purple:

I don’t think so. JJP tech was very vocal on here and in the newsgroup when the last two code updates dropped, but then when it was discovered there were bugs it’s been basically radio silence and no update for 3-4 months if not longer. I’m surprised it hasn’t been fixed/updated or at least addressed but maybe someone has some more info.

Quoted from Kevlar:

Is it safe to install the latest software yet? a few people were getting out of sync animations on the phone iirc.

Remove the Bluetooth dongle and see if that helps the animation syncing. It’s been a while, but I think it might have been determined it was the USB cable causing issues in some games. A higher quality cable was the solution. Rest if the code is fine.

Chrome Candy rods are on most of my pins. Solid metal in many different colors. Very nice!

I recently picked up a low play HUO Dialed In. One issue I'm trying to solve is my trap door is broken. It's stuck in the open position. Manually I can open and close the two coils fine. In test mode I get no power to the two coils so I realize that the fuse that controls those two coils is blown. I pulled connector J108 off the board and the fuse doesn't blow... So that tells me it's a short somewhere between the coils and the connector or the wires are wired wrong on the coil lugs?
Can someone post or pm me a pic of the wiring of the two coils? Anything else I should check? I also had to fix the coin door open switch that was wired wrong so I'm thinking it may be wired incorrectly from the factory.

No diodes on the coils, so wires can go on either lug.

Check coil chart in the manual to find which wires go to which coil. You can download the manual from jerseyjackpinball.com - Support - Downloads.

Problem. The GI circuit that lights the left side lights and top led in the left out lane island isn’t working. I have checked the fuses which appear ok. I have taken out a working led board and swapped it out for all on the circuit, following the gray wires back. No result. Any ideas.

#7511 12 months ago

The little surface mounted ones have an LED next to them. Green good, red back. Check power to the boards, be sure ethernet cables are on tight at LED board and HUB board.

I totally forgot if I read somewhere if someone has/hasn't solved this ball trap behind the phone. Did someone come up with a solution? It seems like a post would have to be screwed on at the location I'm pointing at?

No, those are your fuse LEDs on the I/O board and they are fine.

I had one of my best games today. Got DIALE and over 4.5 mill. Reached Armageddon for the first time too. So awesome!

Wow, awesome! Just curious, does your shaker motor seem to slightly go off or pulsate when the games main multiball is ready to start at the scoop? Just want to make sure that's normal.

Yeah. The phone rings and the game "vibrates" just like a regular cell phone.

I am pointing to one of the boards not lighting. I have checked all the connections on the other pictured boards.

#7521 12 months ago

Can anything be done about the sound on this thing? Or are we dead in the water until an adjustment is made at the next update? Too much highs and not enough lows..

Just an observation, it seems if my game is on for a long time (3-4 hours), my phone starts to produce noticeable waves in the display background. It is most noticeable on the red or green background while waiting to activate a multiball. I would guess and say that heat is causing an issue with it. If I feel the glass above the phone it is very warm.

#7522 12 months ago

Does anybody know for what switch 46 is needed? I always have the feeling it's not working, at least in selfie mode this switch does not trigger a flashlight for the photo. In test mode it works.

I contacted jjp about something similar and other phone issues. They now do not respond to my tickets. I've heard from others that they are getting the same treatment. Bummer as they were awesome with support until recently.

DIY

easy & quick, a small piece of plastic, cutted/folded to block that space, attach it with double tape face or directly with the original protec plastic screw there, as mine... (done right the same on the left plastic for tha BOB sign that i replaced myself too... )

now, if you want to make it more "professional", simply drill a hole on the lexan plate, and put a starpost, sure it will look great & as it was from factory...

My DI took about 5 minutes to boot today, I've no idea why. I couldn't give it my full attention as was busy with other stuff but I did see some text on the theatre screen. It looked like it was going to fail completely but booted successfully in the end. Also played fine. Anyone had this happen?

#7527 12 months ago
Quoted from TOLLS:

Surface mount fuse. Contact your distributor first then open a ticket.

#7528 12 months ago

Every 30 or so games, my phone will go out mid game. If I power down and up, it works fine again.
Thoughts?

Thanks for the reply. Usually when I do a mod...I do prefer it to be completely removable, but...in this case it should be a permanent fix and I'm not sure I trust double sided tape. I'm thinking like this maybe? ->

I have to do a marco order anyway so this seems like a cheap but effective, and near factory look hopefully.

Actually...just looked again. Looks like JJP uses a metal post and rubber sleeve as a ball stop on the lexan plastic ->

They should have just added one in this location from factory. Its just a 1/4" x 1" #6-32 Hex spacer, with 2 screws, a washer and a rubber sleeve.

Funniest callout I've heard in the game so far -- after tilting during Alien Invasion: "Oh no, now we're all going to get probed!"

#7532 12 months ago

Not sure if anyone has ever noticed this as you may not have had as bad of a ball as I did. I don't think I even hit one shot before I drained. I got 800 points and on the screen noticed it said the points were a "participation award" lol. That was pretty good.

[quoted image]

I have a fix for this:

Just take the plastic protecting the phone and blocking the ball out, heat it up with a hairdryer and bend it so far on this side, that the ball is able to fall into the right loop lane.

This is a solution without any real changing of the game and makes a reliable solution.

Lars

PS: I think I have described this some time ago and documented it in an old post here with pictures... If you cannot find it, I will try to make pictures later on...

I don't wanna steal your thunder,but I had a ball last week that only scored 20 points.

#7538 11 months ago
Quoted from TOLLS:

Thanks for that.

It cost me around $60 for a board swap on my Hobbit, the problem if you can't do surface repairs is if you have a LED thats come unhooked and shorting to something you will blow the fuse again and then another $60, so like on old school repairs find the source of the issue before sending in the board for repair unless you really like doing repairs or board swaps they just don't blow.

#7539 11 months ago
Quoted from pinstyle:

You can try changing the sound with these System Settings, I thought changing the Volume Effect Intensity to 2 made it sound a lot better on mine (not just louder).

I will check again. Thanks for the advice.

I've installed the most recent cliffy style phone scoop protector for quite some time and continue to get some bounce outs.
Has anyone tried installing some dead foam or rubber at the back of the scoop to help with this?
Thanks!

Mantis protector ftw

#7543 11 months ago

Thanks, I may do that eventually. However, I've got a very tiny bit of chipping which I would prefer to keep covered with the cliffy.
Anyone else try some dead foam or rubber to reduce bounce outs?

Bummer about the chipping. I've seen a fuzzy side of velcro being used to help absorb the impact. Might want to try that out?

#7545 11 months ago

@ FatPanda: Thanks again. Fortunately, the chipping is extremely small; but I still want to protect and cover it up.
I will try the Velcro idea as well. I don't get bounce outs on all shots just some. However, with no cliffy, it was certainly the best for successful hits.

[quoted image]

Thank you, I know there are setting for volume intensity but I was more or less looking to adjust the high and low pitches. I will give volume effect a try just for the hell of it.

#7547 11 months ago

I know there are easter eggs in DI and I just got educated on the red button so that was fun to find with my daughter. It lead us to keep looking for others such as cows... Well not to spoil it for anyone but my daughter found objects that fly past the moon at the replay match screen about 30% of the time. Maybe we'll get an update after WW is released.

#7548 11 months ago

Looks like my lastest phone replacement is a winner. It hasn't blacked out once since I installed it.

Shhh! Say no more. You'll jinx it.

#7550 11 months ago

I was having a pretty good game until the drone magnet threw the ball. It actually went airborne and landed inside the left sling.

Is this a fluke or would adding extra rubbers on the sling help?
