Quoted from kpg:

Stern has been building pinball machines for what, 30 years? And problems as simple as this are still being shipped like this from the factory? Unbelievable that someone can fix it in a few minutes here on Pinside, but the professional designers, testers, and factory assembly workers don't catch this or fix before it is boxed up.
I find that crazy, and there is no excuse for that.

If you're looking for perfection you may want to rethink this hobby.

Quoted from kpg:

LOL - typical Kool-Aid drinker talk around here.
Once again, it's my fault for wanting to support Stern and pay them $8,000 for a pinball machine that they have had 30 years of experiencing building similar ones, but with different art and sound work.
What an idiot I am to expect it to work out of the box.
It's "My Fault" I expect a working and properly tested product out of the box.
How dumb I was to expect my NIB MET to work back in December- TWO YEARS after the first one rolled off the line- but no, it was dead for 3 weeks after I pulled it out of the box.
But go ahead, accumulate those up votes by once again pointing the finger at the CUSTOMER who buys products from Stern and keeps them in business.

I'm guessing most people here actually do agree with you but are just getting tired of your broken record approach to complaining. I get your frustration, but I'm also tired of reading about it every second post.

Quoted from kpg:

True- I've also noticed some unprofessional and snarky replies on their FB page, which is vastly different then how most other companies handle their social media presence. Although at times there are some funny responses, there are ones like this that come off pretty rude.. So I guess you have a point... It would probably just be used as a way to beat up customers a bit like what happened with this guy

See I don't always disagree with you. I've noticed this as well.

Have some strange technician alerts on my LE. Tested switches and everything is fine but they don't seem to clear. The weird thing is the alerts don't match the numbers or names in the manual.

These are the alerts..

Switch #52 left ramp enter (manual says 52 is pop bumper exit)
Switch #65 r. ramp exit (manual says 65 is left bank drop opto)
Switch #92 left ramp 2 (manual has no switch #92 for the LE)
Switch #93 left ramp 3 (manual has no switch #93 for the LE)

Anyone else seeing this on their LE? I also have no credit dot but I seem to remember hearing the complaint that they removed the credit dot with Spike.

Just downloaded the pro manual. Looks like I'm seeing alerts for switches on the pro model that arn't even on the LE. Guessing this is probably just a software bug that Stern still needs to fix. Still curious if anyone else is also seeing these alerts on their LE.

For those complaining about air balls and Scolari Bros not dropping try changing your flipper strength to soft. I noticed a huge improvement after doing this.

Has anyone tried bending the ramp targets downward to try and help with airballs?
