I just took possession of a Transformers LE. I have played a friend's Transformers LE and found it quite easy to rock the ball all the way to the top on the Ironhide mini playfield. However, on my machine the Ironhide mini playfield seems to have a lot more friction rocking side-to-side and on standard solenoid power, the ball will not move up the playfield at all. When I increase the mini playfield solenoid power, it is slightly better but definitely not as good as my friend's machine.
I have pushed the backboard rearward to make sure there is no interference between the Ironhide figure and the backboard, but that makes little difference.
Any other ideas?
