Hello, I observed that the multiball mode playfiled the laser is not active, I do not find in the maintenance menu where I can test,can you tell me where I can see if it works or not?, And how to get fix, greetings.

If you have the Pro model it doesn't have the "laser".

Under the apron is the laser , there is a band around the button that activates it , make sure it hasn't slipped off , I read somewhere that this happened to one person .

Thanks,I removed the apron and get two wires to the motor and two wires to the laser, I have not seen any band, I found the test number 20 of the coils and it works, but is not active in any of the multiball of missions, I have version 1.42, if I worked before, I've also looked in settings and the laser is active, any suggestions.

Another cuestion, is it possible to change the red laser for rgb laser?, regards.

There's no such thing as an RGB laser. You could swap it out for a green one if you want it to be brighter, but don't put anything above class 2 in there if you value your eyesight--the pinball presents an eye hazard otherwise.

I saw blue-purple ones on the net so that could be an option too...

You can't get a 405nm (violet) or blue laser bright enough to look good without being dangerous. Your eye's response at that wavelength isn't good enough to make the starfield effect at a safe level of light.

There was a brief fad for blue laser pointers amongst laser physicists until everyone realised that they were really terrible: you could either worry about putting someone's eyes out/violating the law or have a totally lame pointer.
