I was wondering if there is a magnet strength adjustment for the coffin lock on the premium. Ive been having issues lately with it inconsistently grabbing the ball for locks.

Did this really bad ass purple for a metallica today. Matches the cabinet purple almost perfectly

Quoted from zpinman370:

Hi guys- just installed a shaker in my Met pro and finding that the only time it actually shakes is when you hit the captive ball for coffin lock or when you get a multi-ball. Is this normal? I have a shaker in my AC/DC and get a lot more action.

Go to settings and set shaker to maximum interaction

So i got a Metallica premium and its become about a nightmare to lock a ball in the coffin lock. The magent just does not seem to be grabbing the ball and i dont remember it being this bad. I called stern and they advised me to replace the board under the play field. I did and yeah still a no go. I read out the coil and it reads 5ohms and checked connections obviously. I see a setting on the menu in msec but it doesnt seem to help. Anyone got advice. I roll the ball over the magnet and it seems to grab it fine. The magnet works its like its not sensing the ball
Even with a new board

Quoted from yzfguy:

Is the ball rolling over it and not catching? It's not gonna pull it from the neighboring playfield, not sure if that's what you're expecting or if it really isnt grabbing?

If i hit the block directly and the magnet rolls over the switch it doesnt seem to connect it. When it hits i can watch it roll over and even push the magnet down a touch

Have you recently installed a shaker motor?

Long shot but could you balls de-magnitized? Have u changed them out recently ?

Yeah i switched them out just to check lol

Quoted from lpeters82:

Crazy timing. I was just going to ask if people were still doing this. I have a Newton ball, but have never installed it. I will say I get most of my lock shots off of slow rollers anyway. Even with the block it's pretty hit and miss. Does anyone turn on the setting where the magnet energizes after the block is hit? I tried it awhile ago but that seemed to turn it on after every hit. I would prefer that setting to only kick in when the hammer is ready.

I just turned that setting on and gonna try it. Range is between 2000msec and 5000msec

#15638 8 months ago
Quoted from yzfguy:

LOL. I really don't see any issues with ball lock. The ball doesn't land on the magnet and lock on every single time I hit the captive ball, but I really don't think it is supposed to be that consistent, is it?

Yeah i get by design it wont every time but since new code i feel its a giant pain in the ass to get the lock and makes it feel broken
