T-Minus 2 weeks for one on location in Jacksonville FL
New! Dark mode!
Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Switch to dark mode using the button in the top right (or CTRL-B)!
I plugged in a brand new bill acceptor into connector near cashbox but it didn't power on... customers were ready to play so I just put game in its place for now and covered bill slot...
Quoted from Scribbles:
I could be mistaken, because I don't have games on route, but I believe there's a setting in the menu you need to turn on to let the game know you have installed a bill acceptor. Maybe....
Naw it should power on still, but yeah seems like i'm missing a cable to plug into the backbox, ugh...
So the post in front of the top right fliper has so few threads that it won't stay in place...
You can I guess use locktite but the best and real solution is a post that goes all the way through with a locking washer nut. After less than 2 days on location it popped out last night on location, p.s... I did even tighten it by hand when I put a titan rubber on this post.
On the way to a hardware store...
Quoted from pickleric:
What parts are you getting from the hardware store?
A drill bit to put a new wood screwed post into my playfield!
I kid, I'll find a new old stock post to replace it that is long enough to make it through the playfield. I debated hardcore locktite but I'm just going to leave it off of the playfield for. I may put a round mylar sticker over the hole for now.
So far I've had to adjust me dual leaf switch for the 3rd flipper to work some, but after enough manipulation its fine.
My post replacement...
Used a Titan post as they are sticky and bouncy.
Sidenote: If you took apart the flipper mech I'm quite certain you could put a locking nut underneath.
This game currently gets 200+ plays a week.
It hit over $1000 on location so far at 75 cents a play. My current top earner on location.
Quoted from Green-Machine:
Compare this post alignment picture with the about picture. That was the concern I had. The don’t look the same to me[quoted image]
It seems some are shipping with flippers alligned differently. I didn't adjust that flipper it came lined up to the post in the middle.
Settings I changed...
Ball trough launch as low as possible
Auto launch up 5 power
Left flipper down 5 power
Top right flipper down 5 power
Also slingshots down to 25 power
Just made certain things work better for me.
I'm getting stuck balls here a lot!
Atleast twice yesterday...
Solution today later will be removing spacer inbetween the plastics as the ball gets stuck tight into them. The cause is air balls from the captive ball but i'm not lowering the flipper strengths.
Quoted from OLDPINGUY:
Try a removable rubber clear dot used for cabinets. (worth a shot if its a small gap)
Great success through the years....[quoted image]
Its a far bigger gap, its poor design as it wedges inbetween 2 plastics and the ramp, solution being remove area to get stuck as a whole.
