Quoted from Chalkey:

A customer just told me they started "top of the charts" by holding in the flipper buttons. After completing their game they played a normal game and it had a perpetual ball save. He said ball save was not lit, but ball 1 never ended. He restarted the game after 10 minutes. Anybody seen this?

I believe I read someone post this a long time ago. My guess is old code.

It's the latest with Insider Connect working.

To be more specific, I "think" I ended the top of the charts mode, but it went into a regular game. The timer on the screen definitely stopped showing up. Although I feel I might have gotten free ball saves when it was still in the mode. Premium 1.12 code, insider working great.

Is the placement of this piece normal?
It's at the ball entrance of the playfield.
It now rests at the ball guide.

I think I just made the biggest mistake by having the playfield waxed for first time after about 750 games. Before I was able to control the shots and cycle through songs somewhat steadily but now it’s crazy fast and I’m lucky to get halfway through a song. I’m playing very similar to when I first got the game where I was struggling to crack 25m. Also, is it common for there to be more spin on the ball after a good waxing?

I literally just had this happen yesterday. I also had to just shut it off. Weird

It's normal. It will wear off pretty quickly.

I’m running 1.12 and have been having an issue with EM not holding the ball captive after the stage comes back up. It’s dropping the ball within a couple seconds and awarding me big points for “hitting” the ball. Used to hold the ball captive until I actually hit it before this update. Around the same time that I updated I also adjusted the playfield angle to be steeper, and I thought that was causing it. I’ve tried the playfield at various angles with no luck. Saw some earlier posts in this thread where some were having the same issue, but I didn’t see any resolution yet. Are others still having this issue with the 1.12 code?

Hmm...1.12 (I think that's the latest...) was created to fix that issue (it was broken in the code before that). I would double check that you are on the newest code. If so, it sounds like there might be an issue with the opto. Check to make sure all the connections to them are good, clean them, make sure nothing is blocking them, make sure they are aligned, and make sure there aren't any bad solder joints. Good luck!

Having an issue with washer on the end of the shooter rod is hitting the auto plunger. I checked the shooter and the auto plunger and I don't see an adjustment here. Any hints or solutions out there?

#7114 4 months ago

I had the same issue a couple of weeks ago.

But I have not found a direct adjustment possibility. Therefore I lowered the shooter rod assembly with loosing the screws from internal of the cabinet, pushed the assembly as low as possible by using it's tolerance and fixed it with the screws again.

#7115 4 months ago

What a awesome pin
I ordered a alternate translite from eBay because the Premium artwork is so redundant.

I have had this issue also. I checked mine against my Turtles and everything looks the same but it is still hitting. I will check out this fix.

I fixed it for now. Loosened internal shooter plate screws, pulled rod down and retightened. Then stuck a rubber button on the plate for the autoplunger where the mechanism rests. Let's see if it stays fixed. Shooter and auto plunger both work atm.

That's the same way I have done it. Rubber instead was not needed on my LZ.

Problem solved. It was an ID-Ten-T error. Apparently I downloaded the 1.12 code, put it on the flash drive, and got distracted a few weeks ago when I was updating my pins. Didn’t actually install it. Good news is that the optos are good! Thanks for the suggestions.

It’s funny, that’s one of the things I liked about the premium, all the black and white made the table absolutely pop!

I agree completely. I love the black and white artwork. Makes it stand out among the other colorful games everywhere. I also really really like the pro cabinet and artwork. I would've bought a premium as I like the artwork better, but an LE came up in my area for MSRP in July and I jumped on it as I figured it would maybe hold it's value just a bit more.

I like the blue color on the LE but also love the very clean look of my Premium and therefore don't want to change to those, admittedly very cool, alternate translites.

I have a premium if you like that artwork that much better…

Ok. I ordered my top 4 powder choice samples. Let me know what you all think.

In the light shredded black. I think vein will be a nice touch! I think this is the style on JJP GnR. Seems more durable to damage.

If I was going to do this I would be giving red a good look with either a black or metallic fleck in it.

#7129 4 months ago

Before I ordered samples #2 black frost was going to be my choice. I think it still is now that I have the samples.

I was worried red would clash with the orange on the armor.

Whatever the color of the LED Zepp font on side is what I meant.

Premium needs a little color to make it pop.

3,2,1,4 is my preference. I have something very much like #3 on my Met premium and it looks and FEELS fantastic.

Prismatic's Illusion Tangerine Twist is a good match for the Led Zeppelin letters on the cabinet.

That's just the most perfect but subtle amount of "pop" for that theme. Love it.

Just checking in ,I really miss this game since we sold it to get a METprem .I will be back .Carry on

#7142 4 months ago

I have a LZ pro question. If the ball plunges from the shooter lane and hits the dead end shot, is it supposed to start a super Mode and add multiplier time? I feel like mine didn't award this when i first had the game, now it does. I love it because it gives me 'free' super modes and extra long playfield multiplier time, but wasn't sure if it was right.

Cousin gave me his old black light poster tonight. I had the same one when I was kid but apparently he kept his.

Zep show and tell?

How about these cool bootleg coke mirrors a friend of mine won as a teenager at a Long Island fair. He contributed them to my game room!

Have a few more odds and ends but nothing really special. My pin is definitely my most expensive Zep item! But I will say the black light poster my cousin gave me is probably one of my favorite items next to my pin!
