Quoted from Sparky:

I've never really liked the spotlights on the sling plastics of the Stern games I've owned (LOTR and SM), and I also noticed the METLE ones were reflecting badly in the DMD. The apron spots were also reflecting in the DMD, so I pulled the bulbs to see how much of difference it would make with the lighting of the pf. It didn't make much of a difference, so I kept the apron spots out.
The sling spots I removed, and visually, it makes the sling area/inlanes so much easier to see. I like it a lot better. Since these slings were on a long harness and connector, I decided to use them under the pf. The left one I mounted under the FUEL target bar and put in a red flex. The right one I mounted to the Mystery scoop and did the same thing with the red flex. I just saved $50 in LED mods!
I also changed four songs with six others, as well as the text for those songs on the radio selections. I now have 14 songs instead of 12! Added a powered subwoofer under the game, and it ROCKS! SS boney flipper bats are on their way!
Pics of the sling spots moved are below.

Very nicely done sir! I was considering removing the sling lamps just the other night as well.

Quoted from Av8:

I had to re-adjust my shooter rod. Was high and to the left. Now its perfect.
Drop targets are not going down like they should. Working on that next.

How adjust the shooter rod ? Mine is also to the left and touch the auto-plunger ( and thus, the auto-plunger is unable to shoot the ball up the lane).

Thank you.

My game has a list of issues that we are trying to work out. Here's the latest one. No GI randomly goes on and off but mostly off. Checked all of the connections. Must be a bad board or cable.

Broken inline target - just was getting into the game play - grumble - I love you stern but for the love of god ITS A TARGET ITS going to get hit.

#761 5 years ago

It makes no sense they put those extra plastics in there for the pop bumpers but not a couple drop targets? I'm getting tired of having to push a few bulbs in every day, but so far that s the only complaint.

#762 5 years ago

I recently broke 2 of my in-line targets, in the same game. Stern promptly sent me the whole assembly. It arrived yesterday.

I installed it in 5 mins (4 screws & 2 connectors). However, it constantly re-sets the targets on just about every switch hit. It actually does the re-set 3 times, each time, within a 1-2 second period.

Any help?

#763 5 years ago

when you call in about broken drop targets what is required to have them send out replacements?

#764 5 years ago

Had a broken front target. Stern replaced the entire assembly but none of them had the "cross" decals on them. Installed the new assembly and now the front target will not reset. They said they would replace the entire assembly again after my distributor contacted them. I hope they don't forget the decals this time.

I contacted Stern.

Can we get some cross stickers for the targets?

I had extra cross stickers in my goody bag that came with the pin.

#768 5 years ago

Yes, the decals (stickers) are in the goody bag. Thank you for pointing that out. Nevertheless, if Stern sends out new targets, you would think they would include new stickers.
