Hi all
my right eject (the tatooine chute) is playing up. Was throwing the ball sdtm (or off the tip of the left flipper). Tried pretty much every multiple of 5 (on the eject power setting) between 30 and 60 and cant get it to eject consistently into the left flipper. For now have dropped eject power to 20 and it just sort of dribbles out (but at least not a guaranteed drain). Don’t want this as a long term solution obviously.

Any advice on next thing to try? Bend the metal on the top of the chute. Unscrew it and try to change the angle a bit?

The SW Pros we play at our league location are all set in the 25-28 area with a good speed eject, anything higher than that is SDTM....

Thanks AUKraut - just checked and I get occasional STDM at all those values - makes me think I might need to tweak the mechanism itself....

I actually tweaked the metal ball guide on our Pro. Just shifting it slightly to the left helped a lot.

Thanks cadillacmusic - can I check do you mean the metal guide that the ball hits after leaving the eject mechanism (the long piece on the playfield that guides the ball towards the flippers) or the piece that is part of the actual eject mechanism?

The former. Just loosen the screw near the blue target and push the guide out towards the center of the playfield a little.
