Recently joined the TNA club.

I tired to improve the view of the LCD screen. I found the buttons on the back and got brightness turned down but couldn't figure out how to get to contrast in the menu to adjust that. ??

Also, someone told me that somebody might make a spacer so the LCD screen could be tipped back at an angle to make the screen perform or view better.
Can somebody point me to someone that has made such an angled spacer if they are available ?


#5170 9 months ago

Yes - I got the brightness turned down. I wanted to change the contrast but couldn't figure out how to get to that setting to adjust it. Maybe the contrast is the tricky one to navigate to. I wasn't able to get to that one to adjust it.

Maybe somebody can remember the sequence to adjust that setting. Thanks in advance.

#5172 9 months ago

Yes, I was in that menu and I adjusted brightness - I couldn't get it to go down to the next menu item, contrast - that's where I'm asking for help .

I could only get into the first item, brightness and make the change. Easy enough. Could not get into the next item down in the menu and make it "active" to change it.

#5174 9 months ago

I got back in and into the settings and finally stumbled into contrast and adjusted that too. Now at 25 brightness and 85 contrast. That made some improvement. Still wouldn't hurt to have an angled spacer for the screen. If somebody has made one I'd like to hear about it.

Post Footnote:

I explored tipping the screen as if I had a spacer and I don't think a small spacer would achieve much more than adjusting the brightness and contrast has already done. Brightness at 25 and Contrast at 85 is a decent improvement over the stock settings of 50 and 50. Gamma setting remains On.

Quoted from VolunteerPin:

Just watched the video. Very cool. Does this help with getting plunged shots to fall through the lanes. I have a very tough time with that even after a year or whatever of ownership.

I have been thinking just changing the shooter spring to one that is not as strong might help. Anybody try a weaker spring on the shooter rod for plunged shots ?

#5902 3 months ago

Plunge shot on TNA seems to be harder than most games. I was thinking a different tensile strength spring might make it a bit easier for those that would like it easier. More in line with some other games. You don't have to change it if you don't want to. I was just asking if anybody explored it. Might make it a bit more achievable for guests or casual players like myself.

You are correct shooter gauges have been on pins for ages. I kinda knew that. Not that it's new news to me.

I'm not a competition player. A new replacement spring of a different tensile strength might make the plunge shot more achievable.

I am familiar with the philosophy of Steve Ritchie. Thanks though.

Turn the game off. Unplug it and sell it. That should take care of the issue. At least from that particular machine.
