I've had my JP since 2015. Did a completely tear down shortly after I got it. But the one thing I didn't touch was the Trex. It worked perfectly, and looked complicated enough that even if I put it back together correctly, I felt that I would have messed up how it's settled over time and wouldn't be back to 100%.
This weekend while playing my JP quite a bit, the VUK started to shoot the ball weakly, and then started to take multiple tries, and now multiple tries and the ball gets stuck back in the subway.
So I opened it up, and took out the subway to see if I could spot why or what the ball was hitting and not making a solid shot. Still no idea.
But while looking around, I was inspecting the underside of the Trex, wondering if I should actually take it apart and clean all the mechanical pieces up. Especially the gears of the side to side motion, and noticed a previous hack. Someone at one point stuck a tiny folded piece of paper in the microswitch for the return-to-center switch.
Seeing it, I kinda want to fix it, but again, wouldn't know if I would actually make it worse once I took it apart.
I kinda wanna see what's printed on the paper though. I can see there's at least one word on it.
