I just got my machine and Barad Dur is moving backwards when it get hit.. shouldnt move forward?

The t10 flasher behind the ring is 12V or 6V?

I now understand the problem, this is information that I did not have, the tower must go forward.
not sure for the flasher but i think is over 12 volts, may be 20

#10254 31 days ago

I just got the idea after I sent the email. btw your Barad Dur mod is awesome, thank you!

#10255 31 days ago

I've finally been able to get my hands on the Path of the Dead figures. Can anyone help me out with the best way to mount and hopefully light these up on the existing POTD plastic?

Hello everyone, I joined the club this week with a completely stock original run unit. Playfields perfect, the head and cabinet have some dings that will be addressed someday. I Plan on putting a pin2dmd XL display, complete pinsound package, led ocd and GI version for installing leds. Anything weird to know or amazing upgrades that are still available to get? I seen some of the mods available and will start on that adventure I'm sure soon as well.

Thanks
Conrad

Congrats! Here is a cheap mod that I would consider essential.

I've seen that, what color would you recommend?

I think mine is orange. I guess orange or red would be good. It flashes the eye in the backglass with the spinner. Very cool effect!

Has anyone from the group purchased the LOTR cabinet decals from RetroRefurbs? I’m curious about the quality of them.
Thanks in advance.

#10264 23 days ago

Cointaker makes custom LED backbox lighting kits. The LOTR panel has the eye changing colors among other things. It is a great visual experience.

Im facing a strange issue: my ring opto seems to work fine, but the machune senses constant ring hits. any idea fellow hobbits?

#10266 21 days ago

the game is giving 30M without even shooting the ball. if I move my finger through the ring, it is visible on the opto board that it is sensong it. If I unplug the bottom sensor, then everything is normal just of coursethe ring does not sense any shots..

#10267 21 days ago

Does anyone still make gold pinballs?

Replace the opto pair. Surprisingly, you can swap the position of the two connectors on the opto board and it will probably start working.

there was a little nothing on the opto wire. wouldnt care at all but I had to try so I cut it off and reconnected. now it is fine. crazy

how can I set my flippers less strong? they are shooting like a cannon. I found some settings, but not sure which affects their strength.

Be careful with these adjustments.

Also, check to see if someone installed the stronger Pinballife coils. They are known to be too strong.

#10275 20 days ago
Quoted from Yodamingus:

sold out with no restock in sight
Anyone else sell these?

try searching Google for "gold pinballs"....

Also if the Balrog is open and it detects a Balrog hit, it will award a ring hit. (pin assumes balrog is stuck blocking the ring) So the Balrog harness might also be the issue.

Those appear to be the factory coils. Here is a pic of the PBL coils.

Let me know if anyone is looking at selling a Home used Lord of the Rings. Thx

#10280 16 days ago

Does anyone have a source for the trough opto boards (515-7307-00 and 515-7308-00)? Nothing at Marco or PBL that I can find.

UPDATE: Never mind. That was the wrong part #. Needed to source 515-0173-00 and 515-0174-00.

Been slacking on getting back to the torn down LOTR in the basement, but I think I’m done with the shooter lane repair. Next up = finish the shire cliffy prep & install cliffy + decal, and then I guess start the arduous task of cleaning everything removed from the top side.
