Just had a Premium Delivered end of June and finally getting some good games in.. and fixing a few issues here are there.
Delivery guy had a shaker motor on the truck so win win, I got to add a shaker motor same day it was delivered.
Then I started to notice some issues that were driving me nuts. I had to add a washer on the left shoot lane first screw. That fixed shots not going up the half pipe every time, I was close to 50% now, I am at about 95%. There was more to it though, like leveling not just front to back but side to side. . I also lowered the Auto ball kick out to 170. I had to bend the tong out on the left side of the shooter a little so that side made contact with the ball at the same time as the right. Now the only think I am missing is my orange spring to replace the green spring it shipped with for the manual shoot rod.
So for the first month I was running stock 1.0 software and I decided to go through the update. I had no issues with the T-Rex before. But after the update, sure enough when he went to drop on the ramp he moved to the left too far and didn't make it all the way down. Of course this was my highest score game and I hit the bottom of the jaw and drained right out, back on topic. So I went to settings and adjusted the T-Rex center -4 and that fixed it for me. He drops in the center and all is well again.
The more I read up on this forum I found some other issues I didn't know I had. So my left ramp will not register the first skill shot if I shoot it too fast and other shots up that ramp if they are too fast. So I slowed down the right flipper to 215 from default and that has helped a little. but I still get a few here and there. I am looking at the sensor in the back and it looks lined up correctly so I will continue to try and figure out the better solution.
Then tonight, I see and hear a black screw drop and slide strait down the center. It landed in the coin box so it was easy to find. I searched the whole machine looking for where this came loose from. nothing, it looked like a black screw on some of the plastic areas. so i put everything back together and fired up another game then the jaw fell off my T-Rex. So now I lift up the play field and look for the other two screws that are also supposed to be in there to hold the jaw on. Sure enough I found them below plus 2 washers and a silver screw. Using a screw driver bit I was able to manually put the 3 screws back in the jaw. T-Rex is good eating balls like normal. However for the life of me I can't figure out where this silver screw and 2 washers came from.
This is my first NIB machines so It kinda bummed I had to so to much to get it working so well. I do enjoy it so at least I have that going for me. Here is a nice picture of the jaw that fell off and the illusive screw that I can't figure out where it goes. So if anyone has any ideas let em know where I should look.
