Hello, I just got a shadow and the backbox sound isn’t working in both speakers. I have sound through the sub, but none in backbox. I checked all the wiring and it looks good. Any idea what it could be?? Thank you for your time!

It seems that my flippers on shadow aren't as strong as they were just a couple days ago. I recently had a repair done on the GI lights and sound, but that's it. I can barely get the ball up the ramps now?? They used to be powerful and rip up the ramps. I'm stumped. Any idea what could be wrong? Please help. Thank you!!!

#5777 6 months ago

I think I just need a flipper rebuild. Grimy and dirty. Thanks for your help!!

#5778 6 months ago

Question, my shadow shooter plunger fires nice about every other time. One time it fires strong, the next it doesn’t go all the way up the wire ramp? Any idea what could be the issue? Thanks everyone.

#5781 6 months ago

I will check those things. Thanks fellas.

I’m sure others have had this issue. When the ball goes up and around the right orbit and exits the left orbit, the ball bouces off the post at the end of the left orbit and goes straight down between the flippers. I’d like it to come down to the left flipper. Any ideas how to make this work? I’ve noticed pictures of other shadows and it looks like that post sticks out, so this has to be an issue. Any thoughts or solutions? Thanks everyone.

#5796 6 months ago

Thanks everyone!!

So, I’m still having issues with my shooter plunger. It works well every other or every third plunge. When it works well, it shoots it up the wire form very well. When it doesn’t work, it doesn’t even make it all the way up the wireform. I checked the alignment and it’s good. I also checked for any loose screws. Everything seems okay. Any suggestions on what to do? Thanks everyone.

#5800 6 months ago

Plunger tip is good too.

#5803 6 months ago

Okay. I will try that. Thank you.

#5804 6 months ago

Hello, the slo mo didn’t reveal anything. It seems to lack enough power to get the ball up the wireform every few shots. I’m stumped on this.

#5807 6 months ago

No rattling. It’s a clean release. So, you think changing the coil will work?

#5808 6 months ago

I mean coil sleeve.

Quoted from Johncare07:

Has anyone had an issue with the side to side arm on the battlefield sticking or delaying when pressing the right flipper? If so, how did you solve it?
[quoted image]

Check the underside of the battle field and make sure the gears are lining up. Also make sure the arm manually slides left and right very smooth. I had to replace the rubber ends to the rod that the arm slides back and forth on. The rubber pieces that screw onto the rod were both compromised.

Quoted from Johncare07:

Any ideas on why the battlefield is not operating correctly? The kicker fires sometimes but won’t move right??

Lift up Mini Playfield and make sure your kicker slides back and forth really smooth. Make sure you clean off the two metal guides. Operators used to lube those, but that’s a bad idea. They can get gummed up that way. Make sure the two metal guides are tight and solid as well. I had a similar issue and one of my guides was compromised. The rubber piece on the end was ripped. I had to buy a new one from Marcos.

Anybody know where I can get plastic protectors for shadow? At least for the slings?

I have art blades and wish I did mirror. Especially with pinstadiums because the pinstadiums cover up a lot of the art on mine. I have the ones with the shadow character on each side.

So, the brick back wall goes down right when I turn on the machine. It should go up or stay up. I tested it in the coil test and it goes up and down fine. Any ideas what could be wrong? Also, when I turn the machine on, I get an error message saying wall target down and wall target bad/check coil.

#6286 80 days ago

Great idea. Thanks!!!

#6290 80 days ago

It was the switch. It wasn’t soldered. Thanks fellas!!

Does anyone have an extra left ramp clear plastic? Or an Aurlich translite they would sell? Thank you.

Does anybody know where I can find part 02-5041-15G Fastener butthead? It’s the piece that the bolt screws into on the gun handle. See pic attached. Thank you.

I just installed Pinshakers shaker motor. I cranked up the strength and wow! Super cool. Really makes the pin come to life. You can set shaker to particular flashers or solenoids. Pretty awesome!

Quoted from Djshakes:

Hi guys, I had 25 of these made as I made a run of airball protectors. I'll throw an ad up. $18 shipped. Don't plan on making more unless demand is high, demand is low I'll drop the price. It was more of a novelty to make them and I wanted one in my machine that was engraved.

Where does it go?

Why does every shadow seem to have scraps on the backbox decals? Seems crazy that almost every shadow has this.

Never understood why people waste their time with these types of posts.

Quoted from pinballjah:

I’m a fan of flipper toppers/decals, have on most of my games.

I was commenting on the guy ripping on you with a BS post. I like flipper topper decals as well.
