Wanted to find out the settings being used by others here who have the PBL coils in their LOTR machine. Mine is working fine, but curious what others have their settings at. I will add mine next time I have the machine (probably tonight).
Not the coil strength. There are settings (I think 53-55 under Standard settings) that will have numbers listed. This is in firmware 10.0 and higher. These three numbers are the ones I am looking for.
Iq lowered setting 53 to 5 and setting 54 to 40. These are the min and max times for the coils to fire. Defaults are 10 and 50. I left 55 at 7 which is what it has always been at on mine. Anyone have different?
Also, if you do the code of LLLLR (four times) before starting a game, the fire time displays on the screen in the first two settings. When you hit the ball, you can check what it says for the time it fired.
Two or three solder points for each coil. Remove coil stop, slip on new coil, solder, replace coil stop.
Quoted from mandelbloom:
Pretty sure it's only two solder points..should be reasonably easy.
Keep in mind guys if your LOTR is an LE you MUST remove the Diodes off those coils.
Thanks, mine is NOT a LE so I should be ok. I do notice a drop in power after about 10 minutes with the flippers.
Other than blowing mosfets... I just blew the left flipper mosfet in my SAM LE... tested it and confirmed it, but called stern to see if it was likely a 273 was gone behind it. They noted the mosfets blow here and there, and even stated that they may have gone with too powerful coils.
