I installed my shooter lane cliffy on the outside, but when I had it apart couldn’t figure out the circled bolts. How do they come out? Pic attached

Unscrew then tap out lightly from below. It's easier to take the apron off then loosen the one guide rail over the other pin to get it out.

Cliff really should have better installation instructions, seems like everyone asks this same question. You have to carefully push them out from underneath the playfield.

Quoted from Galvez1978:

Yes, the light it's flashing red and white, i shoot a full plunge, the ball do the U ramp and later a direct shoot with the flipper to the ramp. But active the paddock.
The machine it's new, comes with 1.02 installed.
Thanks!!

That is weird - it should only reward the skill shot and not activate the paddock on that shot. The fact that it starts the paddock shows that the game did sense the ball on the left ramp. I'm not sure whether there is a setting for turning off the skill shots - do any of the other skill shots work? I would be tempted to do a factory reset ...

Edit: In case you're not familiar with the other secret skill shots, they are:
- short plunge and hit the "C"
- short plunge and hit the "O"
- short plunge and hit the Amber target in the pops

^ And by push them out he means hammer them out.

Another newbie NIB question (sorry)...

Are these visible circle patterns normal on a NIB pin? Only visible in bright, overhead light and at certain angles. Is it just part of the clearcoat? I'm probs being way too pedantic -- new to all this, so sorry if it's been asked a ton.

They're very fine, appear to be sorta everywhere, kinda. I've seen them on other playfields of course, just didn't know if this is normal for a factory pin.

Photo makes it look a bit more pronounced than it looks in person.

Thanks!

You’re all good man. It’s fine. Just play and have some fun. If you read these forums all day, you’ll go insane thinking you need to slap metal and Mylar over everything. It’s a pinball machine. It will be fine. Play the shit out of it and don’t worry about minor things.

Yeah pretty standard now. Here's what I did. Clean it with some Novus 1 (not Novus 2 which is abrasive), then do a really good waxing with Blitz wax, use whatever lets you get at everything...a little foam ball, an applicator pad, a small microfiber, your hand...let dry for 25 minutes. Lightly buff to a shine...Repeat. I have found with repeated cleaning and waxing, those little swirls go away and the playfield does start to shine a lot. Now I just clean it regularly and wax lightly occasionally. Then turn off the overhead lights and stop trying to find marks and just play...the focus on the little imperfections will fade quickly

#7362 1 year ago

for the cliffy install, when reinstalling those bolts, don't overtighten. i broke off one of mine and had to order a replacement.

#7363 1 year ago

I have a question for prem/LE owners about the red Combo indicator light at the heli pad.
With the last update it should have been fixed but the light still doesn't makes sense to me.
It also lights up during heli blade rotation. The light should flash during an ongoing combo.

Unless you're planning to install a playfield protector on it (which many don't recommend), I wouldn't worry about these - your playfield is about to get a shit ton worse after playing (dimples, scratches, etc.).. This is not a hobby for perfectionists or worriers - just play it and have fun.

I believe there is a nylon nut underneath, and you have to gently pound it out with a hammer. I think it's been covered a couple pages ago.

Quoted from ReluctantPin:

So my NIB JP (July, 2020) I now notice all the Stern balls are in some way pitted/rusty, right out the box. In my ignorance I didn't check close enough... put about 10 plays on it. But all the balls? On a new Stern? Is this exceptionally unlucky or are they always this dangerous?

Swapping the balls should be part of your regular maintenance, like waxing/polishing/cleaning the playfield and rubber parts. Keep in mind that the balls in the JP machine must be resistant to magnetic shifting. This means the ball itself picks up and retains some magnetization when the Trex grabs it. Some balls are better than others, and usually advertise themselves as magnetic resistant. I think Sterns JP ship with G100's which are also magnetic resistant.

As for shine/finish, remember the lower the number the shinier, so on other machines I have been using some Titan G16's and replacing them every 250 games. I have not done so on my JP due to the magnetic issue and I only have 75 games on it. I may try these next swap. (All six balls!)

Totally agree.

Hope all is well over there in your neck of of the woods brotha! Congrats on grabbing Vittys JP that thing looks sweet!

So I'm guessing it's only a replacement for the pro.

Can you guys tell me how your game plays? When I shoot for the helipad ramp, and miss, it drains back out and hits the rubber in the picture. This send the ball all over the place. The rubber in my game is not factory. I did not install it. Maybe it’s fatter? Is the ball supposed to feed back to the right flipper? Or is this the ways it’s designed?

#7380 1 year ago

Those are silicon rubbers and I have the same. Mine will knock the ball to the left flipper on a miss. Helps to take another shot at the heli pad. If ball ball has little momentum, it drops near the right outlane and that is dangerous.

[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Those appear to be Titan clear rings. I have the exact same ones on my machine. Love em. When I miss a shot, the ball hits that that rubber and bounces to the left flipper. No danger on my machine.

I have the stock rings that came with the game, and mine hits the rubber on the way out of there and bounces over to the left flipper.

I have this same problem as soon as I put Titan rubbers on. My only suggestion is to go back to stock rubbers on that spot at least.
My game plays much more difficult since I put Titans on. I have Titans on all my other games as well and I don’t find this to be the case.

I have noticed the only way to make the playfield level is by completely extending the front two posts at their highest points. The machine is now level but it just does not look right compared to my other machines, as the front two legs are raised all the way up. Does anyone know if this is normal for this playfield?

Not normal at all. Check your pitch with a digital level on the playfield. You should be at 6.5 to 7.0 degrees

Any videos out there for Cliffy protector installs on JP?

#7390 1 year ago

put a washer under the left-fork screw on the shooter lane. It then did 5 proper auto-launches in a row, and then shortly after that it was 50/50 again for making it up the shooter ramp. sigh

It doesn't sound right - I have my back legs as high as they can go (so the machine sits as high as possible) and the front legs are approx only half way with a 7 degree pitch. Even if you had a lesser pitch of 6.5 I doubt that you'd get anywhere near the max on the front legs

Check each ball individually and see if specific balls are failing all the time - I've heard of this being an issue and worth checking

OMG that sounds like madness. What could be the difference given the tolerances of pinballs?

Try 2 washers, change the autolaunch speed to 200 or 205 for a 7.0 degree pitch angle, make sure your autolauncher is making full contact with the ball in it's travel, may require slight bending, also make sure the plunger rod is striking the ball true and not putting English on the ball which will occasionally send it careening into the rails and get jammed at the pipe. Check the plunger tip, if it is worn, it may be angle the ball on striking. If the rod isn't lined up perfectly dead center on the ball, you can use some small washers (1 did the trick for mine) to go on the top left or right faceplate screw assembly to slightly angle the rod to bring it back to true. Lastly, if your rod came with a green spring, I would recommend changing it to orange, unless you got a custom amber rod as they are orange from factory. Not single thing is going to work by itself, but it's a combo of them all and dialing it in. I can get about a 95% rate of success between auto and manuals...it's just the quirks of this lane it seems

Quoted from cait001:

Yep I agree it sounds like a bunch of BS

The pinball tech said that some of the balls could have become magnetised, now both the owner and myself were sceptical that this could be the possible cause of balls failing to make the U-ramp however the tech found that a couple of the balls regularly failed whereas the other balls would make the ramp. The failed balls were swapped out and as far as I'm aware it has resolved the issue. Note the owner had previously gone through all the usual causes and advice on the thread, so I'm still scratching my head on this one ... but hey if it works then I guess it's worth considering ...

#7397 1 year ago

Hello all,

I wanted to share how I installed some of the cliffies in case it helps someone. While I was in there I made some other tweaks.

1. Cliffies jp kit now includes a protector for the raptor pit gate. You'll need to remove the gate which is four screws and three connectors. My suggestion is to use a dental pick if you have one to get the clip part of the cliffy over the bottom of the playfield, see below

2. The trough side cliffy was a bit of a pain. I really had to push so it didn't overhang the shooter lane while I was tightening the two winged studs. The picture below is before I readjusted. It also has a wave because of variations in playfields vs. his fixed stud to stud difference

3. I didn't install his carbon fiber upper post protector, the new games don't have paint there so mine isn't having an issue. It also requires removing the third flipper base or having a thin wrench

4. I noticed the apron was digging in to the playfield. I put down some thin mylar strips under where the edge of the apron sits, see below

5. I was having issues making the ramp when launching from the shooter lane. I tried the washer with no improvement. As mentioned above, check that your auto launch is contacting at two points. This seems to have fixed my issue for now. See picture below for how I went about bending the launch

Hopefully this helps someone. Overall the cliffy installation was easy as long as you are semi handy with tools. Be careful not to lose any nuts or washers and don't force anything.
