My friend picked up this pin last week. We had a late game session last night and MM kicked in the middle of my game. Friggen awesome surprise for all of us! Hodor Hodor Hodor Hodor.. Hodor!
any tips on how to remove the plastic above the dragon kicker switch? The switch is no longer registering and it looks like the 4-5 screws have bolts underneath so there is no easy way. Can someone provide some high level steps to get access to the kicker switch to see what's going on?
Quoted from TheLaw:
Don't remember how I did it but it wasn't hard...just keep taking screws out till you get stuff loose.
Most likely you'll have to re-solder on the lead to an opto that came off. Don't worry aboot how Stern did it, just attached it to the big solder pad (they thread it to the other side and solder it to a very small lead for some reason).
Tyvm for the reply, we took some shortcuts but got the plastic off. The proper way would be to remove ramps, throne plastic, then plastic behind dragon.
To offer closure: it was the dragon kicker light sensor and the red 5v wire was loose/broke off. Did a resolder on it and it's working!
