Where was it from please?

#11505 1 year ago
Quoted from jorant:

After receiving no contact of any kind from him for over two weeks, this just quietly showed up from iamdarras today. Not good customer service at all, but the man finally followed through.

This is a nice mod but I recommend playing a smartphone screen protector over it. They have no glue so should be safe to remove if ever needed. My first one got damaged rather quickly.

Or just throw that garbage away and use the skull mod which goes under the PF

#11507 1 year ago

I like the eyeball decal better than that skull mod because I think it blends in nicely with the playfield artwork. But that's why there are options.

#11508 1 year ago

I like the eyeballs better as well. Skulls can be overdone

Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

I got the eyeball one because it looks way better. Don't get so butt hurt over it.

#11510 1 year ago

I had the eyeball one on it for about a year, but switched to the skulls after 1000+ games caused the corner to keep coming up. Didn't want to use mylar or cell phone screen protector. Plus, the skulls are so much easier to tell how many balls are locked (and they look more menacing than the eyeballs). Also, I like the ability to make a choice without others telling me what I should have chosen instead of my personal preference. And I like cats...black cats.

Last call on Metallica.
I had an Premium on order. But got a call from the distributor, stern wont be making any more Premiums.
So go Pro or no Metallica at all..

#11512 1 year ago

Quick question about sound settings. You can adjust music volume by itself as well as attenuation, I can't seem to get much out of either, music still seems too quiet compared to the rest of the game sounds. Just curious what you guys have it set to....

Pinballs.com has premiums still - got mine there

If they only would ship to sweden

Changed to a Pro instead. Better a pro than no Metallica at all.

#11515 1 year ago

If your willing to pay a premium price, one of these pros is like no other. Totally worth it. I have one. mipinballrefinery.com

Your Metallica has the metal head? There website picture shows the old wooden head but I would prefer the newer run with the metal head.

Not sure honestly which head

Just brought home a HUO pro. Love getting a pic when the deal is done and the pin is loaded! Kind of an optical illusion. Doesn't look like it fits in that space.
hauler (resized).jpg

It's a 2013 with LEDs and a shaker installed and the playflield looks great. It came with cliffys and protectors that I'm installing.

Question -
The gravestone magnet looks flat with no wear, but the Sparky Magnet is hammered in to a perfect mushroom shape. It is smoothed over the the edges of the playflield. It seems to be protecting the playfield, and I doubt the protector cliffy ring will fit around it. Probably leave it as it. What do you guys think?

Personally, I'd replace it ASAP. You can see in the pic that it's starting to damage the clear and it will only get worse.

Welcome to the club.

You need to be really really careful with that. Because of the way it's mushroomed that might not fit downward through the playfield without doing damage. The ideal way to get it out would be to unscrew the nut below and then screw the magnetic post upward and out through the playfield from above. The problem is that Stern puts tons of Locktite on that nut from the factory and it is sometimes a bitch to get lose without a huge wrench and a torch to loosen things up.

Quoted from John_I:

OK, thats good to know. Acetone should help with the locktite. Time to order a core.

#11523 1 year ago

Always remove magnet cores by screwing up through the top. And definitely replace that one, it needs it. All you really need is a big wrench and a large flat blade screwdriver.

#11524 1 year ago

Hey guys, I've been having an occasional issue with the coffin lock magnet on my premium. Every once and a while the magnet will just let go of the ball while the drop and lock sequence is going. It's not the end of the world for me but it did cost me a personal best score yesterday when it dropped the ball sdtm on me.

I see in there are feature adjustments for the coffin #91-#93 but I don't really understand what they mean. My manual doesn't cover the feature adjustment definitions, only the standard ones. Anyone able to direct me to somewhere that I could maybe get a printable set of feature adjustment definitions to add to my owner manual?

Or if someone just happens to know what those 3 adjustments mean that would work too.

Thanks.

#11525 1 year ago
Quoted from JB-7X:

After reseating everything , my GI lights are back. I am still getting some flicker at random times that aren't part of the normal light show. I'm currently corresponding with pat at stern via email to get everything figured out and back to 100%

Did you get this resolved 100%?

I've been having a few more issues with mine recently and wonder whether I need to buy a new data cable

Quoted from WJxxxx:

I did get my lighting fixed. It wasn't the data cable at all. A 3 pin connector (on the top right corner of the board) on my GI driver board wasn't staying tight. Stern sent me a new Driver pcb and wire harness and now everything is perfect again.

#11527 1 year ago

I'm thinking about changing out my Metpro for a new MetPre. Anyone know a good/decent price range to look out for as I shop around? Also, will these still be produced into 2018?

I just bought a low play (130) premium about 2 months ago for $6100 shipped. It's my first pin but I thought the price was fair and it was worth every penny to me. I was originally in the market for a NIB pro but was having trouble finding one so I went up a peg and got a nice pre. From what I've heard there will be no more premiums made from here on out, only pros.

Not sure if they'll still be making pros either...

Quoted from Raegor:

When I was talking on the phone with my distributor 2 weeks ago about troubleshooting a lighting issue I had he was saying he was just over at stern and the word he had gotten was that they would continue to make pros but had no timeframe of when the next production run was. Of course this was second hand info to me and third hand to you so take it for what it's worth I guess. My premium will never leave my gameroom so at least I got that covered

#11531 1 year ago

They said the same about AC/DC, as long as there is a demand for them, Stern will build them.

#11532 1 year ago

Anyone here watch straight down the middle on YouTube? These guys (mostly Zach) don't like this game very much. I find it mind blowing, as this is one of my all time favorites. And yet, he loves crappy Ghostbusters. It's like I'm taking crazy pills or something.

#11533 1 year ago

I don't watch them, I just watch John's Arcade and random pinball tutorials to see what games I might want.

#11534 1 year ago

Does anyone have a spare apron decal for the upper right on a Pro?

I have a new run Pro with the warning text rather than the band.

#11535 1 year ago

The magnet on coffin multiball suddenly stopped working - i realized it after i hadn't got a locked ball in a while - any suggestions? Thanks in advance

#11536 1 year ago

i had to change my magnet board , thats the only repair ive ever had to do to mine.

I have heard Zach dog games that I myself like, so I kind of take it with a grain of salt. I have met zach in person, bought a few pins from him, seems like an ok guy! Lol. I summed it up to we must just like different things!! And that's what makes pinball great. Myself, I can't stand ghostbusters. Loved the artwork and callouts but to play it just wasn't my cup of tea. So I sold mine!!

But like watching SDTM shows!!

Is it just the Hammer Magnet that is not working or are all your magnets out? Check F-7 which is the magnet fuse...Also check your magnet board under the PF...
Heree are some previous posts about this...
>>>> Quoted from roddog:

>>>> another 8 amp fuse blew in the F7 position.

<<F-7 is the magnet fuse... Is this a premium or an LE? If so check the magnet board under the PF to see if the ceramic resistor is still attached to the board. It's possible that the hammer magnet has locked on and blown the board in that case the fuse will keep blowing because the board is bad.

>>>>Quoted from roddog:

>>>>Thanks for the link. Here is the magnet board.

<<If that is the front of your magnet board there is no need to take a pic of the back...the resistor is GONE...look in the bottom of your cabinet and there will be a ceramic resistor laying in there somewhere and that is your problem.

Only the hammer magnet. I will check your suggestions. Thank you

#11540 1 year ago

Should the hammer magnet catch a faster moving ball? Mine needs an indirect shot or a slow rollover to catch it.

Once again, my 10 year old made a Metallica pinball video. This time showing off the color DMD. I SWEAR he is doing this on his own. I am so proud. Lol

And yes. I know it's sorta bad parenting that he likes a game that swears so much. Lol.

#11543 1 year ago

Does anyone know what size the fuses are in Metallica - the manual says they are 5, 7, 3, 8, 4 amp etc slow blow but doesnt say the actual size. Thanks

#11544 1 year ago

Anyone have pics of where mylar should be placed on this? I have heard places like the lower apron area, but don't know exactly where. Also, has any form of protection been made for the edges of the drain in the form of a cliffy or something? I have seen instances of the drain chipping clear at the very edge.

I think that is what people are referring to when they mention the lower apron, protecting the edge on the drain. I have taken clear and wrapped it around the edge.

Quoted from Kawydud:

Yeah, I didn't quite understand what they were referring to thinking that they meant the front face of the apron that the ball rolls against when it drains down the out lanes, which I have seen done to other machines that have metal aprons. But this apron is plastic, so I would deem it unnecessary personally. Basically what I want to know is, the key areas where mylar should be applied outside of the two areas that Stern has already applied it to.

If you're referring to the magnet fuse, it is a 4amp slow blow...

If you're referring to the length, I'm pretty sure they're all the standard 1 1/4" fuses...

#11550 1 year ago

I just received my shaker motor from stern for my Metallica Premium. It came with an additional PCB, something to do with filtering for the flippers I think. Does anyone know if it is necessary and where does it go?
