The right lane post is a real job to move. I moved the left one in 2 minutes, but the right one will require removing the subway ramp and the containment facility. This part of the machine is a horrible design.

#875 2 years ago

Problems I have experienced with GBLE in order of frustration:

1. Subway balls do not sit correctly in trough when locked; therefore, additional ball is not put into play until you shake the machine to correct. If you elevate the right legs to make it work correctly the left launcher does not hit the right flipper in the correct spot and the right launcher does not hit the left flipper correctly.

2. Inlane guides are WAY too short. Sometimes even the subway ramp return flips the ball to the right drain.

3. Airballs are excessive and many times leads to a ball drain.

4. Ramp switch leading to subway did not always register a shot. This was fixed by bending the top guide down.

Otherwise, the best pin I have ever owned as far as looks, sound, and light show.

I would like a fix for the top 3 problems.

Broke my ecto googles LCD screen today with an air ball. Game Room Guys was nice enough to send me a side protector for it, but it did not help. Had an air ball off the left flipper and it was a direct hit on the screen. Anyone make a protector for airballs that do not originate from the left side of the play field?

Also, installed 1.12. Installed correctly according to the display screen; however, Slimer quit moving and would also not respond to commands to move in the diagnostic menu either. Checked the fuse for the motor and it was good. Checked for 24V and was good. Re-installed 1.10 and Slimer worked again. Downloaded 1.12 again and re-installed and Slimer started working again and the diagnostic commands were different also. I'm wondering if a Node board did not update correctly the first time. Anyway, working now.

Quoted from chucksmith:

Order this item.
http://www.hookedonpinball.com/store/p102/Ghostbusters_Ecto_Goggle_protector.html
Call Stern tech support to see if they will send you a new one. Take photo before you call. They will ask to see it.

Good news: Pat from Stern support asked me to send him my seria number so he could send me a warrantied screen. I appreciate the quick reply from Stern. I will update the progress.

Received my new replacement ecto googles LCD screen under warranty as promised my Stern. Took 20 minutes to install and now works perfectly again. Plan on buying the plastic air ball protector mod listed in this thread. The old screen took a hit to the bottom and cracked the screen all the way up.
