Have any of you guys swapped out the autoplunger solenoid for a stronger one? Mine seems to struggle to shoot the ball around sometimes. The flipper doesn't need a rebuild.

Quoted from Durzel:

Mine was quite inconsistent and it was fixed completely by cleaning the coil plunger. Mine has gotten a bit gunked up and as a result it wasn't returning back to idle position quickly, compromising subsequent firing.
Cleaning it up completely fixed the problem and every single ball now goes around.
I'd give that a try as a first port of call.

Quoted from DonnieDarko:

This more often is due to a misalignment of the plunger, or slack in the plunger bracket. I saw an article about adding a washer to the bracket to direct the plunger arm fractionally either left or right as required. The solenoid should be strong enough to launch the ball, it just needs to shoot straight.

Quoted from Pugsley:

Yeah if the arm is not centered the ball will bounce off the walls when launched scrubbing of speed and that slows it to where it might not make it around the loop.

Guys, thanks for your input! I'll get on that!

Does anyone know where I could track down one of the original Tracy Toys slot machines? I meant to get one years ago when they were making them but got out of pinball for a while. Maybe someone has an extra on hand? Not sure what happened to Tracy Toys. I'm also interested in finding a brass clock millions mod. These are probably long gone, but you never know.

Quoted from Scotty_K:

OK I finally got around to doing the video of the ColorDMD with the high resolution / smoothing setting. It's about 10 minutes long.
I did some editing on it, trying to show as many different elements as I could. There is a Jackpot hit at around 8:05 or so.
I hope this helps.

That’s how I’ve set mine, it looks fantastic in person.
