I’m having a few issues with my TMNT Premium.
1st: The auto plunger mech is having a hard time launching the ball up the ramp and around to the turtle van. Most of the time, the ball barely makes it to the short plunge ramp. This is a problem, because the game needs to reload the van after a multiball, and when it can’t, balls start stacking up in the shooter lane.
2nd: When you make a successful shot to the pizza parlor to lock ball one, the game thinks two balls are present. Both animations play back to back after ball one locks. Afterwards, when you successfully lock ball two, the game loses the ball, and a few minute long ball search begins. It will finally dump the balls in the van and ball locks, for a multiball that shouldn’t happen. Then the game try’s to reload the van, and the weak auto plunger can’t make the shot, and balls start stacking up everywhere. We have played 185 balls, and I’ve already had 90 ball searches run. Weirdly enough, after a power off reboot it will work correctly for a couple of games, before it happens again.
I’ve looked over the game for any loose connections, to no avail. The auto plunger does have a small tear in a white nylon washer on the left side of the mechanism.
The game is currently running 1.21.0 code. I’ve leveled front to back and left to right. I’ve adjusted the auto plunger power. I’ve bent the metal tabs of the mech in a little to squarely hit the ball. It’s better, but still soft plunging a lot.
I was expecting diverter and play field problems, and end up with a whole new bag of fail. Lol. Any ideas, please let me hear em.
