Great game! I've had it for about a month and it's my first pin. I was wondering if this stuck ball problem happens to others and if anybody has come up with a fix. I do think I've read about it in the past. Even thought I saw a service bulletin about it, but haven't been able to relocate that info. Thanks in advance!
Update: I've located service bulletin #71. Seems I need to adjust the drop targets. So far I've had the coin door lock picked and made keys for the machine, replaced about 20 bulbs, refloated solder on one opto, fixed the sticky plunger, and I'll get some naphtha to clean, and mills wax to polish while I change all the rubber. My paddle wheel entrance switch sticks about 20% of the time. I heard it's hard to get to. I've found that I really enjoy working on this machine, but am sad when it's down and I can't play.
Quoted from woody76:
I have never had one stuck there, are you missing a drop target or does the target sit way down inside that hole? Are you missing the spring on that drop target?
Not missing a spring. Yes, the drop targets are below flush with the playing board. I adjusted the bank and I believe that solved the problem.
Trying to figure out if there is a reason for those two dimples on the pf at the flipper tips. Yes....time for some fresh rubber....I know.
Hi All! Has anybody replaced the paddle wheel motor with one that Marco sells? If so, did things get a little or a lot quieter? Mine makes a loud grinding noise. I think it's the motor itself making the noise rather than the gears.
Hi. Seems I missed the boat on getting an Ingo's DMD saver board Ver. 2 for my newly acquired Maverick pin. Any help or leads would be appreciated. ThanksAdded 18 days ago:
Ingo still has all versions of the DMD saver board and ships to the U.S. I bought the Ver. 2 board for Jodi's Maverick. Are you people happy with it?
Quoted from OTRChief:
While the board is a nicely made product I took it off my Maverick after a few months. Basically it increases the life of the DMD by lowering its brightness. There are lots of good used large DMDs available if yours has problems since ColorDMDs have been made for Bay Watch & Frankenstein. Hopefully a color DMD will be made for Maverick this year. I probably have a DMD saver board in my parts drawer but I won't be at that location until early May.
Why take it off? Was the display too dim for you even when the saver board was set to max? I didn't see your post until I sent the money to Ingo. Now I'm wondering if I'll even use the board when I get it. For now, my display looks nice and bright with no burnt or faded pixles. Just thought I was purchasing a bit of insurance. It seemed to be worth the $40.
I'm replacing the optos @ the paddle wheel entrance. My question is about mounting the new optos. The current ones seem to have a plastic rivit (factory?). I'm wondering how to mount the new boards. Do I need to tap the metal and use screws and a zip tie? or is there another way I should do this? The optos under the Lauren Belle all had 4 screws each board.
Hi all. Hope you're staying safe. I wanted to point out that the hole in the plastic does not line up with the post next to the ball release. I was wondering if it was the same on your machine. I wonder why this is? Good news is that I'm getting close to finishing this project which was to replace the optos at the paddle wheel entrance.
