Check to make sure the wire loom behind it isn't making it stick

I would love for someone from JJP to tell me how to read that f'ing starmap.

I occasionally stare at it, and don't notice any recognizable patterns. Maybe I need to "lazy eye" it like those 3d posters. haha.

My yellow lockdown handle is so tight, I have to use two hands to move it.

Quoted from Lermods:

the two brass screws under the lockdown bar can be adjusted to make it easier.

Sweet. Man, they had them cranked down from the factory.

Quoted from GnarLee:

Ya I know. Noticed it last night but didnt think anything of it. Then this morning watched it put 3 balls into shooter lane and then auto launch. Today was fish tank maintenance day so no work on machine. Did a small test after I was done with fish tank and basically just launched a ball and then let the auto save do its thing. All 3 balls the auto launch took prolly 10 seconds after ball was in the lane. The third one it went into ball search mode so more than likely it is the shooter lane switch. Will pull the glass in the morning and test to find out what is going on. Thanks for the tip

Will need pics of fish tank.

I like it...
Would think there's options for this in the menu.

I don't even notice it. (The topper nor the flickering)

My BP VUK wouldn't get the ball up on stock settings. I had to turn it up, but can't remember what I turned it up to. I'll have to check and maybe dial it back if needed.

My spotlight above Tortuga Tom always goes out. I've tried several bulbs. Any tricks for this?

#1306 6 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

Are you using 12v bulbs?

Aren't they the standard 555 6.3vac bulbs?

Quoted from LTG:

LTG : )

Oh. My stock one kept going on/off. It would come on if I put pressure on it, so I went to pull it out to try and modify it..and I broke it.

Edit. Just pulled a bulb from the coin slot and used that. All good.

Quoted from MurphyPeoples:

Okay - for those guru's that guessed I had Magnetized Balls.... you are RIGHT! Every single ball is magnetized. Some balls only in ONE SPOT - which would
explain the randomness of the balls not draining in the trough. I don't know if I've solved it, as I have no "new balls". I'll be running by Marco Specialties after lunch tomorrow ( On Friday's I work about 5 miles from their shop). Should I just order a sleeve of their Standard Silver Jets? Or a Special ball of some type?
Here's the thing - I've got less than 100 plays on the machine. Weird that they would magnetize so quickly. Should I expect to have to change them every 100 games?
More to come tomorrow - after I load in 5 new ball! : )
Murphy[quoted image]

Huh. I'm just using the balls the game came with. No issues in the last 7 months.
