Just changed my vote to some pooling... just passed 200 games and have 7-8 posts showing. Will continue to monitor for chipping.

Anyone submitted their claim to JJP, and received a reply with solution? I did a couple weeks ago, with pictures... still investigating.

#233 1 year ago
Quoted from Skyemont:

A friend has issued a ticket, sent pics but nothing sense then. It’s been about 2 weeks.

From today, I follow up on my ticket and quickly received a response “Your’re fine, keep playing. You are on the list, we will address this”

#238 1 year ago

No chipping at this point, mainly pooling around the posts. I’m good with playing the hell out of it and within time, we’ll see what JJP comes up with, playfield etc... this is my first pin so not exactly sure what to expect. Love the game!

Few pics after 500 plays at home... time to replace the rubber

Main areas I am seeing pooling/lifting. Not sure how this compares with others?

Quoted from konghusker:

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

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

Quoted from rwalters21:

ball keeps getting stuck on the spinning record...wtf.
[quoted image]

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?

Just checking in.... Anyone with earlier playfield/pooling issues have any success with JJP offering a solution? Filed a claim in October shortly after receiving my SE, some back and forth emails, but no resolution to date. Patiently waiting

#331 10 months ago
Quoted from jandrea95:

No resolution, but after weeks of waiting they did finally reach out to ask me for the build date of my playfield, so it seems they are trying to come up with some sort of resolution.

Thanks! I have mostly been in contact with Barry. My machine is October build date, but playfield number is 1622... Not sure what that equates to?

#335 10 months ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

Do you have chipping or just pooling?

Pooling around the inlane/outlane posts, and clear raising around posts in the mid/upper sections of playfield. Thankfully no chipping at this point. I am 1,031 game in playing at home.

#336 10 months ago
Quoted from jandrea95:

You bet, was your playfield October or machine? My machine was October, but playfield was July. You can find playfield date if you lift the playfield, and look on the back side (right).

Wow, that one is harder to see Looks like 26. Juni 2020?

Had this same issue and found the post from yelobird to be helpful -


I used this technique for several posts and installed some wider washers to help protect... Overall pretty happy with the outcome. Here are a few pics of the left inlane post.
