If all is good mechanically with the flipper assembly, I'd try swapping the left and right flipper button leaf blade switches and see if problem moves.

Quoted from PtownPin:

Has anyone seen this trap door error?

Trap door stuck up ?

Two thoughts come to mind. See the yellow circle pointing out the latch that hooks or releases the trap door ? Avery thin bit of grease on top of the latch. Then the "C" clip above it, is the end of an axle. A little grease or light oil along the top of it where the moving parts are riding the axle. Then work the mech up and down a few times and you should be good to go.

If you need more. Grab the coil bracket part and give it a gentle tug towards the front of the machine.

Quoted from Grateful_Pin:

don’t see anything to plug into it. No stray wire or unconnected connector.

Look around the bottom of the cabinet, probably fell down.

#867 1 year ago
Quoted from Grateful_Pin:

That’s what I assumed possibly but still don’t see it

Stuck in the neck going down from backbox to bottom ? Between head and cabinet, crushed ?

Or open a ticket on it. Maybe it got lost ?

#879 1 year ago
Quoted from aejsm:

My trapdoor won't stay up.

Please look at the picture on post 854. Something is wrong with your latch, the part circled.

Easy to look at and figure out. Relay pulls down to release, spring holds up to latch. Maybe the latch part came loose ?

Quoted from romulusx:

but what is the best setting for the theatre magnet?

Can vary from game to game. Many like -80 or -90

#961 1 year ago
Quoted from PtownPin:

any other suggestions?

A thin film of grease across the top of the latch where you have metal to metal. Grab the coil bracket and give a gentle tug towards the front of the game.

Quoted from PtownPin:

How do you know its set correctly?

No set in stone law about it. Set it where YOU like it.

#1031 1 year ago
Quoted from romulusx:

That is the current one.

This is for a delta update. Not a full install. Instructions are in the JJP manuals which you can download at jerseyjackpinball.com

What does 06 Ball Jam show ?

Shooter lane switch stuck down ?

Any switches stuck closed that should be open ?

LTG : )

#1196 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

BAll 6 jam is hoswing green in the meny.

There's your problem. 06 shouldn't be green. Game thinks a ball is there and kicks.

06 should be the Inactive Opto color.

LTG : )

#1198 1 year ago
Quoted from flashinstinct:

How do we fix that?

Open a ticket at jerseyjackpinball.com under Support.

I'm sorry I don't have a better answer, my suspicion is the 06 transmitter or receiver failed.

#1201 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

Might just be a broken wire, though. I'd visually inspect and wiggle connectors for that while in switch mode to see if it toggles.

This. Check them all the way to the board in the head. Look for loose wire, wire sticking out of a connector a little. etc.

#1294 1 year ago
Quoted from brucipher:

I think this update will just be a delta update

It's a full install.

Quoted from flashinstinct:

Can someone explain the difference between the delta install and the full?

Deltas are usually smaller and don't require as much. Full installs redo things in the operating system that the deltas can't do.

Instructions for both are on the jerseyjackpinball.com website under Support.

LTG : )

#1318 1 year ago

1.50 is a full install.

Viewing update :

"note that the full update sometimes appears on one of the smaller screens (Theater or Phone) instead of the main screen. This is because the displays don't always initialize in the same order.

While it looks pretty weird, the update will complete successfully and the game boots up just fine when power cycled after the update.

--Ted"

On my game it was in the theater and backwards because of the mirror. It worked. Back up your settings and reinstall them after the update.

No, you weren't the only one wondering or trying to do it wrong.

Thank you for helping to inform.

LTG : )

#1342 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballpal:

What are all the things I should do to trouble shoot this thanks in advance.

DI flippers - should be strong. I'd start with the basics. Plungers move freely ? Coil stops on tight ? A tiny bit of up and down play on the flipper so the pawl below the playfield isn't binding on the nylon bushing the flipper shaft rides in, too much play and the plunger doesn't move in a straight line.

Then I'd follow wiring. From flipper to backbox. Any connector along the way, reseat and push in tight.

LTG : )

#1368 1 year ago
Quoted from Cserold:

Anybody know of a fix?

Adjustable below the playfield. Loosen bolt, turn threaded thing up or down as needed, retighten bolt.

LTG : )

#1389 1 year ago
Quoted from Damien:

Does anyone have a solution for this,

Below the playfield is a rod that goes up and down, hooked to the arm. An offset cam on a motor pushes it up, and releases it back down with the help of a spring around the rod.

There is a threaded part in the rod that looks like a little leg leveler with a nut that rubs on the top of the cam. You can loosen the nut, and turn the leg leveler looking thing up or down, to adjust the diverter as needed.

I'd check that this moves up and down freely, and the leg leveler looking thing hasn't come loose and fallen off. If so, reassemble and find the spring and put it there too.

LTG : )

#1431 1 year ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

first thing is to check to see if the optos are plugged in.

Quoted from flashinstinct:

Anyone ever get the switch 13 theatre open switch? Seems like the optos failed but not sure.

First thing is check if the optos are still stuck in the wall they are snapped into, on either side of the lane the ball goes through under the theater.

Quoted from mtp78:

Just wondered if a permanet fix is posted. Some people say to lube linkage then i saw vid about bending a tab

I suspect this can show up from shipping. A little grease on the shaft above the yellow circle in this picture, work it up and down a few times. and the bracket holding the blue coil in the picture, give it one gentle tug to the right in this picture ( in the game, towards the front of the playfield )

Think my DI is having major issues.

If those switches aren't stuck closed. Please go to jerseyjackpinball.com and under support open a ticket. Something appears wrong, maybe I/O board.

LTG : )

#1833 1 year ago
Quoted from Bigbossfan:

Not sure what you mean by stuck closed. When I went into the switch test, they didn't register.

In Tests - Switches - Matrixed, are they showing closed ? If so, can you pull on them and show a change to open ? Most of those look like leaf blade switches that could need adjusting.

If they are physically closed, they won't register. If they aren't physically closed at each switch, then something bad happened elsewhere.

No. Physically fine.

Open a ticket then. Something happened.

#1868 1 year ago
Quoted from Skyemont:

So do a full 1.50 install and then 1.52? My dialed in wont even boot now

Go to jerseyjackpinball.com Please read the directions to do a full install of 1.50 and then delta 1.52 . Putting on memory stick and into a game is different for both.

When you do the full install. There are three screens in Dialed In. Backbox, cellphone, and theater. First one to turn on will show the progress. If it's in the theater, it will be small, and inverted. Harder to read when it's finished.

If you did the 1.50 right and bricked the game. Try a fresh download or different memory stick.

#1887 1 year ago
Quoted from Pale_Purple:

JJP mentions in their instructions unetboot and the drive won't even come up in the drop down menu.

You doing a full install ( 1.50 ) ?

Follow the full install instructions. Download unetbootin, open it, use that to put the 1.50 on a memory stick. Turn game off. Plug memory stick into the USB cable by the cash box. Turn game on. Progress may appear on the backbox screen, cellphone screen, or in the theater. In the theater is small, hard to see, and inverted. When done. Turn game off. Remove memory stick. Turn game back on.

http://159.203.76.48/general/install-full/

Then do 1.52 delta update. Read instructions for delta update.

http://159.203.76.48/general/install-delta/

Quoted from Pale_Purple:

JJP mentions in their instructions unetboot and the drive won't even come up in the drop down menu.

It's in step 1. of full install. Pick for windows or mac of it's website.

If 1.50 is in your game. Just do the delta 1.52, don't mess with unetbootin.

#1944 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

and brittle as if it had a ton of power run through it

Does it ? Put a meter on it and see if you have a weird short somewhere. One probe on spring one probe on ground.

I've never heard of a spring problem like that.

Next time, move a spring from one of your lower flippers up there and put the new spring on the lower, to see if you ran into a bad batch of springs.

LTG : )

#1956 1 year ago
Quoted from Oldgoat:

Upper flipper is erratic. I'd say 20% of the time does not work at all. Press the button, nada.

Don't you hate that ? I hate that. I hate when it happens. Here's what you do. Power off. Open the game up and lift the playfield and lean back. See the right flipper button area ? See the leaf blade switches ? See there are two sets. One for lower flipper and one for upper ? The one closest to the flipper button is for the lower. The one farthest from the flipper button is for the upper. The one for the upper. Please clean it, and adjust it so when you push the flipper button in, it closes it. It would like some adjusting to be 100%.

#1960 1 year ago
Quoted from Oldgoat:

Now if you can figure out my lock down bar issue, I'd be a truly happy camper. I've spent at least 30 minutes adjusting the screws, validated the glass fits in the back channel fully but no success.

Glass off, playfield up and leaned back. Put lockdown bar on. Look in there with a flashlight and see if lever/screws need to go up or down. Adjust and put together and check.

Worst case scenario, loosen lockdown screws holding to cabinet. Adjust receiver and tighten again, or remove lockdown bar receiver, put on lockdown bar, and make new holes and refasten receiver.

? Do you have your game level left to right, and around a 6 1/2 degree pitch for the playfield ?

Quoted from boostedskex:

The other thing I am noticing is that after I plunge the ball the auto kicker will kick 2 times after any switch is hit. Is this supposed to be happening?

No. Check the shooter lane switch. It might be sticking or binding in the slot it travels through the playfeld in.

Quoted from TheLaw:

but then i read I needed UNetbootin and lost interest.

You kidding.

Unzip a file for delta update, or open unetbootin to place a full install on a USB stick. Same same. Only difference is delta goes quicker, full install long er download, longer to put on a USB stick, longer to put in a game.

Is the switch #13 Theatre Center Shot the switch I want?Can you roll a ball by the optics with coin door open

Power on, coin door open. Go into Tests - Switches - Matrixed. A ball or your finger, roll it by the opto set in the lane walls with under the theater.

Not working ? Turn game off. Remove two screws holding the big clear plastic piece over the pop bumpers. Then remove the screw and nuts holding the theater down, and set the theater to the rear.

Look at the optos, one on each wall. Did one come out ? Snap it back in. I'd put a dab of hot glue on it. Reassemble. You are good to go.

#2768 1 year ago

Quoted from moonduckie78:

This just a leaf switch under the playfield?

Yes, by the offending pop bumper. The long leaf with the spoon should just be resting on the plastic rod coming down from the pop bumper skirt, not pushing it. The lower leaf blade should be far enough away so vibration doesn't set it off, yet the slightest ball hit does.

A little tweaking and you'll get it dialed in.

But you will see the 3 EOS switches are red in test mode.

Red because they don't work. Start checking continuity from EOS to I/O board. A break somewhere common to all three. Black is the common wire, check it first.

How do I fix the right flipper in my picture?

Loosen the nut holding the pawl to the flipper shaft, turn flipper to position, retighten HARDER.

Be sure and leave a tiny bit of up and down play ( not back and forth ) so pawl doesn't bind on the nylon bushing below the playfield that the flipper shaft rides in.

Quoted from Nepi23:

One cannot use e.g. Williams springs here instead?

Since Williams no longer exists, what is being used is copies of Williams springs.

I don't believe the spring is the issue. On flippers and drop targets, the hole the spring hooks into seems sharper and scores the spring and it snaps off at that point.

Soon the spring smooths the hole over and it doesn't happen again.

You'll know if a new one blows right away.

Sometimes crap happens and never happens again. And sometimes there is a reason.

Watch the VUK for the ball trough. If it locks on at power up, a premature transistor failure on the I/O board. If not, you may be okay.
