    Hey everyone.... after 5 months I finally got a new Jurassic Park Premium and it played fine with about 15 games. I bought an original OEM shaker from GameRoomGuys and installed it as I have installed 3 other Spike Shaker motors. After the install, I went through the service menu and activated the shaker. The shaker never worked..... I removed it and installed in temporarily in my Deadpool Premium pin and it worked fine. I reinstalled it in my new JP and it worked during testing. I made it all
    Nice and neat AGAIN and after turning it on after putting the glass back on.... I now get a Overcurrent Detected in Node Board 1. The shaker still won’t work and now I can’t get rid of the error. Any help?? I’ve already removed the shaker again. Aggravating!!! Thank you

    Did the shaker come with a capacitor with a harness to plug into the node board?

    #3 4 months ago

    Yes it did come with the capacitor but I remember reading on another JP post that someone’s blew and comments were made that it was not needed and can be installed without. I did not install the capacitor.

    #4 4 months ago

    I think you need to install it. You said you bought the same shaker and have them installed in your other spike 2 games. Do those have the capacitor harness installed? If they don’t, I’d put them on.

    My aiq le came from the factory with the capacitor harness installed and my Elvira premium shaker came with the harness and I installed it.

    Thanks Lermods. Do you think the error will go away if I install the capacitor? The game actually plays fine and complete but when I turn on the pin, I get the error. Hoping this makes the error go away.

    If you unplug the shaker, the error should go away, but it’s possible you may have already done damage. Try it and see, it won’t hurt any more.

    This happened to me on a Led Zep Premium. I contacted Stern and they sent me a new cabinet node board (under left flipper) I installed it and my errors went away and shaker was finally working.

    #8 4 months ago

    Unfortunately, I believe the node board 1 under the left flipper if fried. I plugged in a wrong shaker and it worked in test mode, then fried within 10-15 seconds starting a game. If you fried it, you would have probably smelled burnt rubber- board. Pinball life sells new node 1 boards for about 175 bucks. If you look at the board closely, you probably can see the fried component.

    Everything seems to work fine except I get the error message and the shaker won’t work. The pin is about 10 days old with about 25 games on it. I’m hoping Stern replaces it

    #10 4 months ago

    And no smell or any evidence of anything fried. Just an over current message

    #11 4 months ago

    My iron maiden does the same thing, also says through error but everything works. Idk

    I was getting same message and replaced the cab node board.

    #13 4 months ago

    I’ve never seen Stern point to their warranty and turn someone away. Ever. So get in touch with your distributor

    Exact same thing happened to me on a brand new Pin. Purchased an "authorized" Stern Shaker motor from Pinball Life. Paid the extra $20. Installed it properly (only one way to do it) and yep it fried the node 1 and node 8 boards. Stern never responded to my emails and messages and Pinball Life washed their hands of it insisting they sent the correct motor. They did refund my purchase. Luckily the distro (Operation Pinball) stepped up and drop shipped me the two boards from Stern. Ordered another shaker from a different company and everything worked fine. The new shaker had a different part # than the one I was originally sent. So.....contact your distributor if Stern ignores you.

    My JP failed to register the overcurrent error and fried a mosfet on the power distro board for the coin door switch section of the board .
    I put an old power distro board (without the door section) in and the shaker doesn't stop as soon as the games on, I was thinking it was an issue with
    Q15 or U10 on the cabinet node. The shaker is factory installed with no mods in the game. but yeah my money is on the cabinet node (node 1).

    I was turned away recently on a spike 2 cpu for another game with another issue. The game was 2 years old though, so all good. I think they are making the parts cheaper on their site and backing off this warranty stuff. Problem is they are all sold out of stuff. Crazy thing is I just had this same exact issue on another game the week prior with a spike 2 cpu. Before that I hadn't had an issue since ghostbusters. When it rains....

    So I gotta shout out to Mike at Automated and Patrick at Stern! I sent Automated an email This AM regarding my issue and within 8 hours, the message was forwarded over to Patrick at Stern and he is making arrangements for a new Node Board to be delivered to replace the defective board. Very happy that my new pin will be back to normal. Thank you all for responding with your stories and recommendations and very happy with Automated as they stood by their customer!

    There is still an issue with what caused the board to fail. Was it the shaker or an internal issue with the board? I’d install the capacitor harness if you have it. If you don’t, get one.

    #21 4 months ago

    I am assuming the Node board was faulty but I will ask Patrick from Stern for his input. My shaker did come with a capacitor. I will make sure it is used when I swap boards. This OEM shaker seemed to work fine on my Deadpool when I tested it after not working on JP. Hopefully the result isn’t the same but I am optimistic.
