Quoted from Sako-TRG:

^^^^^Meanwhile JJP still posting sh^t on Social media - FB promoting t-shirts and blankets ffs.... why don’t they invest their time into the problems at hand, merchandise can wait.
This poor sucker buys his first pinball machine and gets a Playturd TM.
My temperatures rising

You really want their social media coordinator working on playfield issues lol

Lol..... not what I meant...however we know who authorises the Social Media coordinators posts for the merch advertising etc....
It’s bad judgment/timing on JJPs part when there are other more pressing matters.....is what I’m insinuating.
How about an authorised communication from them saying “we’re working on it” rather than them just deleting posts they dislike about Playturds TM which seems to be the only involvement from the SM Coordinator ref the issues.

Get some form of communication out...
I don’t care how many pats on the back they give themselves or hoodies they advertise after that, knock yourselves out!

Quoted from Sako-TRG:

Yes, it’s better than nothing I guess.
Not many people have the clear coat skills this side of the pond though.

It is a shit situation. I wish thecplayfield manufacturers could get this right. It has been a few years now.

I am doing my best to make the most of it. I will not let these issues stop me from enjoying the hobby.

Quoted from BMore-Pinball:

Personally, I would have no interest in buying that, even with the new PF
I can't do a PF swap, so that offers me no benefit.

I get that this is not for everyone.

#255 1 year ago

Is there a build date or play field date stamped on these last pics?

#257 1 year ago

wow, 54% are having playfield issues... is that a record?

Haven't purchased a new in box game since 2013 because of the playfield issues.. been seeing it first before I buy at a way lower price

Mine is October build date. From the serial#, looks like #16 for SE.

#261 1 year ago

wow, seems like more issues than their should be. I hope everyone with a play field issue gets a decent outcome.

#262 1 year ago
Quoted from Dantesmark:

My jp had pooling out of the box... a nice chip too.

My JP has a thin piece of blue plastic sealed under the clear. Also has streaking where the ink looks to have been rubbed when wet around the “Main Event” insert.

(Also had a POTC and have a Wonka with chipping.)

#263 1 year ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

They sent out a service update on the disk weeks ago and it has been mentioned by several including #LTG. One drop of blue loctite and screw it back in. Takes maybe a minute to fix. They have since fixed the issue on the line.

where is the bulletin? I want to make sure my disc is solid.

#264 1 year ago

ball keeps getting stuck on the spinning record...wtf.

Whats the record disc made of, is it plastic or metal?
Just trying to gauge how it’s gonna look later down the line..... after a bunch of plays.

Plastic. The ball really only hits the post. I could see the record decal with some wear down the line possibly. I’m sure they will have plenty of options to replace the decal.

I had this same issue, only getting stuck at the top of the record. Checked the slope and adjusted to 6.5, no issues since.

#270 1 year ago

My SE shipped without the decal under the bass. Anyone with this as well? Is there a way to get this?

Email jjp for it

my disc needed to be adjusted from below the playfield, its perfectly flush now after I adjusted the height with the screw and tightened the plastic wheel to keep it in place.

Did this get resolved? What was the JJP response?

#274 1 year ago

64 votes for issues so I'll guess maybe 10 - 15 are legitimate and the others are by the Stern Army lol.

LOL 55 votes no issues I quess that means 15 are legitimate and the others are by JJP fan-boys

#277 1 year ago

I have an open ticket for my issues still. Hopefully they come up with an acceptable solution, whatever that may be.

Bad ass game though. Cant get enough

#278 1 year ago

What issues do u have?

#280 1 year ago

JJP should do Tom Petty next. And anyone who gets a good playfield gets special access to this song:

I totally agree with this statement. The silence of this thread and the inevitable dying out of it is a huge positive for jjp and peace of mind for us the buyer.

#284 1 year ago

No one has gotten a game to have a PF to bitch about.

#285 1 year ago

The only thing that this silence does for me is confirm I'll never own a JJP NIB machine. Ever. They've had this problem for how many years? A Decade? every since they started getting Mirco to do their PFs.

There's no such thing as trusting that Jack is going to make this right. He hasn't to date on any game and won't.
He needs to fire Mirco and find a solution; not fix this with washers and jury rigging.

There’s been a lot of LE’s and SE’s shipped out to over seas and in the states I’m thinking the problem was mainly in the first single batch of four batches and the new playfields are better!

This is total BS. Owners thread has people getting games almost every day at this point.

I am thinking there are very few games with playfield issues. There are also a few people that keep posting the same few photos over and over. Plenty of games have gone out.

#289 1 year ago

I was having the same issue with the record but I found out why. I was missing the nut under the center of top side of the record. You have to press down with one hand on the top center of the record while screwing it from under the playfield to get it tight. I also ordered Loctite 425 for extra help. JJP said Loctite 425 ONLY - anything else can cause issues. It's hard to find and I had to order it at Staples.

See attached service bulletin for more info.

Wow, You guys are tough. I hadnt seen many posts about people getting games. Please forgive.

I sure hope this got fixed. The lack of problems being reported is hopefully a good sign.

That must be that ship that's permanently at sea, so to speak.
Nothing arrived in UK.
Nothing wants to go to Europe with the 25% so they must be going to Oz.

I hope the PF issues have vanished for good so we can all relax.

I can tell mine is arriving in Europe next months in Germany, screw the 25%. I wanted it and i am getting it. 2020 has been gutwrenching enough for me. 2021 is starting better than 2020 has been. My LE should be floating the ocean as we speak. Looking forward to playing it. It may indeed be a rare machine in europe for the forseeable future. This one is coming to the Netherlands.

They’re not coming here either. I was told only 1 small container and I ordered on day 1 and mine isn’t on the first container. I think it’s only about 30 LE’s coming here
