Has anyone heard Stern stopping production MET Pro LED machines? I have had one on order for 6 weeks and I am being told another 4-6 now. I get that Iron Maiden is out, but I am worried I will never see the MET Pro I have on order.

Quoted from Gort:

Six weeks is nothing. I waited five months for mine! That's when they were having playfield issues and right before Stern moved to a bigger building.

That is brutal, but I am also down the street from them, so I am amazed that I am still waiting. IMDN took over the assembly line I guess. 10 weeks seems like an eternity when we are waiting for a new toy!

Quoted from RobF:

New METPros are coming off the line starting this week.

Fingers crossed then! I have a drawer of toys/mods waiting for it.

Latest addition to the cave. Been a long weekend of adjustments and mods. Couple more to go. Such a fantastic machine.

My NIB Met Pro arrived a couple weeks ago. Have everything done except for Sparky's helmet. Added mirror blades, Color DMD and the green plastics over the lanes, along with few other little things. Wanted to let everyone know, out of box I had a bad flasher bulb, bad 555 bulb and the left leaf switch for the left ramp wasn't registering. I reached out to Stern and they are sending the parts out right away. Happy to see they are taking care of a new customer, but a little disappointed in their quality control. Anyone else seeing this on NIB purchases, I ask because I am considering another if I move some inventory at home. Cheers!

Quoted from monte_:

I have had a metallica nib premium for 2 weeks. Noticed that i hear humming noise when holding the left and right flippers. It is slight hum when i hold the right flipper up but much louder with left flipper held up. Normal or some way to lessen the hum? Thanks for any input.

Mine hum as well. I'm used to it. If you search this thread, I think someone cleaned or shaved the contacts a bit, but I didn't think it was worth the effort. I have about 300 games on mine (NIB in June) and the hum is there but doesn't seem to have an effect on gameplay.

Quoted from embryon:

One other quick question. Is there a way to demagnetise pinballs

Just buy new ones. They are cheap in bulk. I replace all of mine every 150-200 games. Saves your pf from getting chewed up as well.

Anyone try claiming a broken Sparky foot under warranty? My MET is less than a year old with around 500 plays on it. Kinda disappointed to see him missing a foot already. Not thrilled about dropping $200 on a new Sparky less than a year in.

Need some diagnose help. Sparky sensor is triggering at random times, usually when I hit the right ramp. Just keep triggering and multiball starts. Did switch test and all switches come in clean. Thinking maybe the opto is bad, or not lined up properly, both lights on the opto board are lit and I checked the connections. Any tips to realign it, or should I just replace it? I reached out to my distributor and I am waiting to see about getting replacement parts (machine is just over a year old), but thought there might be an easy way to fix/diagnose.
