Quoted from dgoett:
Been inside the damn game more than I've played it.
Mummy captive ball wasn't recognizing hits. Tweak the spoon under it and found the switch too close. Fixed that. Then when there was a ball locked behind the captive ball, the back switch wouldn't detect hits. Had to stand on my head and take metal subway out to adjust that switch. Fixed that.
Whew. I can play now. NOPE. Middle drop target stops resetting. Reset! Reset! Reset! and the middle one is always down. WTF? Take the assembly off and Stern missed the washer on the middle drop target and spring worked it way thru the slot and target wasn't pushing forward to catch. Fixed that with a new washer. FINALLY!! I can play a game.
NOPE!!! Have 1 ball locked behind captive. Go to lock second one and the damn plastic divertor falls down in the middle of the playfield. Screws weren't tightened - still sitting where they came out.
I quit. Maybe I can play a game tomorrow???? What else does the future hold???
when we went through the tour @ expo, we were assured that each and every game is fully tested. I don't think so. plain and simple they may test every one of a certain part (but I don't think that's even true)
it's pretty sad that out of the box, people are still having issues like this. given the number of independent mechanical devices within each game, and the price that stern charges, there is absolutely no reason that stern shouldn't up their game and start testing their machines a lot better before they are boxed and leave the warehouse. I do not know of any other manufacturer that has the amount of "out of the box" failures that stern's products do
it almost appears that in their haste to ship games, the quality control has dipped to that of the batman 66 levels
one quick question for all of the LE owners that have received their machines. everyone keeps clamoring about all of these extras that are not on the matrix that are supposed to be included, but nowhere have I seen one owner pipe up with what they are. I'm guessing this was just a lie?
