I have an issue with the start of the black pearl multiball. The ball is on the BP deck on the ship, spinners and lock button is finalized, the cannon load light is blinking. When fighting with the ball to get into the cannon, the cannon light goes out and the MB light on the main playfield starts blinking, without any cannon load or shot.

Any idea, what is going wrong here?

Quoted from zaphX:

It sounds like the game thinks the ball left the Pearl, and possibly even thinks it hit the Dauntless.
In switch test are any switches reporting stuck closed? Or falsing if you bang on the play field?

I will check in the switch test. However, that would mean that the switches in the canon and in the Dauntless would be registering incorrectly, which does not seem to be probable.

Quoted from zaphX:

Good call, maybe it's as simple as that. Every time you skillshot the boat, it advances one step towards BPMB. Spinners, Load Cannon, and the shot itself.
However, the OP mentioned the load cannon arrow is lit, which it would not be if BPMB was qualified via skill shot.

Thanks for your thoughts. But in fact the cannon load arrow is flashing and then it disappears (while the ball is on the BP without getting into the cannon) and then the MB lights on the playfield (which means the pin thinks I have destroyed the Dauntless).

I can hardly close the lockdown bar. It is very tight. Is there a way to lock it more smoothly?

Did this happen right out of the box?

Quoted from Trooper11040:

Took off my ship to fix the map t nut and on the back lane, I see this sticking out. This can’t be good?

Edit: disregard. Ball doesn’t touch it. Sorry

Why does the ball not touch it, is it at the bottom of the playfield? It looks like it is standing significantly into the ball movement.

Quoted from Trooper11040:

The back rail keeps it from touching the actual t nut. Kinda odd but the shape of the ball works to the advantage of the rail lol

Quoted from zaphX:

Mine has the same protrusion and my orbits are smooth. If you roll a ball over it you'll see that the metal piece runs under the gap between the ball and rail when the ball is flush to the rail.[quoted image]

Thank you for your feedback. Good to know that no fix is needed. I already feared that I had to remove the BP. Keep that removal for the future.

Quoted from Trooper11040:

Then hardest part of taking off the black pearl in my opinion is the VUK, and putting the wiring back in after you have it off lol. It was honestly a pretty easy process

That gives me hope, thank you

Quoted from gumnut01:

I’m struggling with this spotlight. It is either pushing up the launch ramp if too far to the right or trapping balls beside tortuga Tom. And it goes out all the time from the vibrations. I think I need to take launch ramp off and bend the angle plus maybe put some washers underneath.
This is the culprit. Anybody else had similar issues?[quoted image]

I have the ball traps as well.

When powering the pin it sometimes (not often, but regurlarly) happens to me that the complete GI is out and not working. Switching off and starting again normally solves the issue, but does not explain the reason. Any experience in this regard?

#2048 3 months ago
Quoted from Slapfighter:

Exactly the same lighting problem here.
Switching off and on and all is ok. This happens not often but sometimes it does.
Also sometimes i have to switch off and on twice, before it's running normal.
I own a Pirates SE.

Ok, thanks for your feedback, seems we are in the same boat. I own a LE. Obviously no sever problem and if no single case, we can ignore it hopefully unless it happens more often.
