Quoted from BulkOfTheSeries:
I dropped the color DMD in mine today and it looks awesome. I'm having three issues though.
1) The Sanctum Wall wont always lock in the 'up' position. Sometimes it fires and tries a few times, never makes it. Sometimes it locks up briefly to fall back down. Sometimes it works. It appears to be able to raise all the way up, but not 'stay' up.
2.) The back row of my battlefield doesnt pop back up after they're knocked down. They stay down. Is this a switch I need to adjust? I think it is but I'm unsure how.
3.) My ball gets stuck on the left ramp too often. It 'dies' on the wire headed to the right side of the machine, where the little switch the ball rolls over is present. Is this common?
1) Lift the play field and drop that assembly. It's only a couple screws. Clean i thoroughly and be sure to inspect the target well. The little lip that causes it to hang in the up position can get worn down and eventually won't grab.
2) This could be a multitude of problems. If I had to take a wild guess, i'd say a wire beneath the mini play field got cut, taking out the optos that sense the targets when they drop. That moving kicker can really shred wires underneath quickly if someone didn't route them properly.Or something is wrong with the opto board like a cracked solder joint. I would rack out the play field and flip up the mini. Everything is really easy to access. Put the game in switch test to determine if the optos are working.
3) I'd like to see pictures of balboarules's fix as it sounds interesting. I really had to bend my switch out a lot because that switch will not register a lot of times during gameplay because the ball goes past so fast. The tradeoff is that a poor shot can get the ball stuck if it's moving real slow. When I got a few hang ups, I made sure the game was perfectly leveled left to right. Then I cranked up the angle. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but i'm guessing 7.5 or 8 degrees. Haven't had a hang since, the switch registers almost 100% of shots, and TS rocks with the blazing fast speed of being at that high angle.
