My monitor was sagging also. I wound up printing a couple blocks on my 3D printer to put between the ends of the monitor and the bottom of the head to even it out. Mine wouldn't stay hooked in the right side latch. It came loose during shipping and scratched the paint on the backglass. JJP sent me a new backglass.

#6270 4 months ago

I could get the monitor into the latch, and get it closed ok.
But with a good tug it would pop back out.
Even when latched in place part of the monitor frame was still visible through the backglass.

#6272 4 months ago

I'll look at it again, the next time I have the backglass out.
But it wasn't latched when it came out of the box, thats even with the wooden blocks that prevent the latch from opening in place.
So either JJP didn't get it latched in right, or it managed to come out somehow.

Quoted from apinballwiz:

Thank you. Was there soldering and cable removal from the front of the game? Can't find the original post and just want to know what to expect.

I had to take the head off mine to get it through the door.
There wasn't any soldering involved, just unplugging a bunch of cables in the backbox.
I also had to cut some nylon cable ties.
A few of the connections are inside the metal computer box.
Like others have said, take a bunch of photos, video is even better.
Most things only go back in 1 place, but there are a few that are confusing.
I don't know if the USB plugs need to go in a specific port, but I tried to plug mine back in where they came from.

Quoted from apinballwiz:

Excellent. Thank you!

You're welcome.

FWIW If I had it to do again, I would have removed the piece from the door jam that stops the door from swinging past "closed".
That would have been less work, and given me the extra 1/4" I needed to get the head through.

I'd recommend having a helper, the head is heavy.

Quoted from darkryder:

Same here, my display still sags even when fully latched in. I fiddled with it for a good 30 minutes. Will try some small wood blocks to hold it up for now. Frustrating...

Maybe JJP mounted the right side latch higher on later production games?
Mine was made 01/15/2019.

Quoted from anathematize:

Woo hoo. Another one with the same issue the POTC I play on has.
Absolutely no clue on how to fix. Its been this way since day one. I think I've managed to score a direct hit on the Dauntless ~3 times in hundreds of games.
At this point I've just moved on to lighting the canon arrow shot on the Black Pearl and then do a skill shot plunge to get the multiball qualified instead of messing around with trying to 'miss' the Dauntless 3x times to qualify multiball. Not the most elegant solution but it works.

Mine is similar, it doesn't point straight at the hole in the Dauntless.
The ball still manages to make it in the hole ok.
I didn't notice until I read about it on pinside.
I did the re-align the cannon chute adjustment, it helped a little.

Quoted from Lambow:

My monitor sags also, the latches hold the monitor in, but not up because they latch on top of the catches. One thing I notice when I tried to fix it last time was the foam that I guess is supposed to keep the backglass from hitting the monitor seem to drag the monitor down when you side the backglass down. I have also tried loosening and adjusting the four screws that hold the monitor to the arm without success.

Same for me.
I added the yellow blocks shown in the photo to level it out.

Quoted from KornFreak28:

Can someone post pics of this issue and what blocks are needed to support the screen?

I don't have a photo of the issue.
The monitor sits lower on the right side causing part of the grey monitor frame to be seen at the top right of the clear window in the backglass.

Here is my solution, the yellow blocks between the monitor and bottom of the backbox prop the monitor up and hold it level.
The one on the left isn't strictly necessary, but assures the monitor is sitting level.
