These hang ups happened during the same game while playing Munsters LE on location!

DILE - I actually had four balls stuck in Chaos in Quantum City. I was only quick enough to capture these three as the shaker is constantly going off during the mode.

Ball took a crazy hop on my X-Files and ended up behind the cabinet. Ball search moved the cabinet up and down, but not enough to free the ball.

I will read every single post here, but here's mine...Theater of Magic...we had to remove the glass to get the ball out.

I had something like this on a Star Trek, did some work that required me using my screwdriver with attachable heads and finished, started playing. Ball wouldn't go around the right ramp it kept coming back.

Eventually I figured out the small block of plastic all the spare heads are in had slid up there when I had them on the playfield and pulled it up!

Roller Coaster Tycoon. Ended up tilting it with a nudge to get it out of there.

How's they resolve it?

Quoted from ImNotNorm:

I made the decision to slap them around.

Did it without a danger somehow. (Tilt was actually sensitive too)

Felt good to slap some balls and get away with it.

Need to adjust my left inlane, apparently.

Somehow, I managed to keep all three multiballs in play while taking this photo.

I re-adjusted the bookcase on TAF.

Apparently, I went too far in the other direction....
IMG_20190429_123203019 (resized).jpgIMG_20190429_123203019 (resized).jpg

Then this happened on my Spanish Eyes. I have no freaking clue what brought this on.

My BK2K manual has a note to operators, stating that all known ball traps have been eliminated. Thanks, guys! You missed a spot though.

At the Pinball Showdown last weekend I had a ball completely vanish on me. I don't remember which game it was, but it was one of the EM ones there. The ball hit a pop bumper, and went up and to the right and disappeared. Both my mom and I were hunting for it and couldn't find it (even tried shaking to see if we could get it loose wherever it was, but tilted and still couldn't find it). Since I never found the ball, I didn't get a picture of it.

Another on Iron Man (I hate the game but keep coming back trying to get better). This ball literally got stuck on almost nothing. I don't know how it didn't just roll back down.

I just brought this game home several days ago, so I'm not the guy that installed a center post in a Flash Gordon. Williams flippers and no biff bars is not me either.

That being said and having read thru the last several pages count me in the club of Ball Balancers.

Got a ball stuck next to the spinning flail on BK SOR. Ran to get my camera, but ball search was too fast and I drained instead. Lol.

There are about nine places on my TOTAN where the ball regularly gets stuck, but this is a new one. It somehow lodged between the Genie and his bracket.

Didn't expect that.... Airball and through the protectors.

Took a while to find it too.
