Ok guys have a strange one here... When setting the angle for the playfield do you normally set to the flippers at the bottom or as close to the top as you can?

I set mine yesterday to 7 degrees at the top of the playfield and it reads around 6.7 by the flippers. The machine plays fine I'm not noticing a great deal of difference in making the helipad shot from what it was prior (6.5 at the flippers), I also adjusted the top flipper a little as it was really intruding in to the helipad lane, it definitely made a difference! (First pic is before adjusting second is after) After making these adjustments and this is the strangest thing, the shaker motor is now really shaking the machine with a vengeance! I'm thinking can changing the angle of the game really change the intensity of the shaker? I wouldn't think so but then again that's why I'm asking the experts Btw, the game is level side to side withing .2 of a degree.

Also, When making a full right orbit loop the ball comes around and hits the truck nuts instead of hitting the upper flipper like I've seen it do on the Dead Flip videos, I tried looking under the playfield to see if there is a screw/nut to adjust the side rail but couldn't find any. Anyone else notice this particular issue? Thanks guys!

My orbit shots are also hitting the truck when they go through at medium or high speed. Lower speed orbit shots are missing the truck and going to the flipper. This weekend I’m going to try to bend the guide rail at the exit of the orbit to see if I can slightly change the angle it comes out of there so they all go to the flipper.

Let us know how that works. My orbit shots started doing this about a week ago (never did it in the few hundred games before that). I'm going to try bending the guide down a little also to see if it will clear and still allow a raised upper flipper to just deflect the ball around the orbit again (as in the dead flip streams)

#3057 2 years ago

Joined the club today. Nov 4 dated Premium. No playfield issues but pretty surprised at how thin the clearcoat is. You can feel the edges of inserts.

T-Rex seems to be working well and has caught all 10 out of 10 shots since I started playing. Shots to the spinner sometimes seem to get hung up behind the pops - not sure if there is something intentionally stopping it back there. Doesn’t seem right though.

Biggest surprise: the sound is AWESOME! I just bought a HUO Iron Maiden pro and it sounds so flat compared to this. I’m now wondering if something is wrong with the Maiden. They are not even close in quality. Anybody know if IM Pro and JP2 Prem should have similar sound quality?

T-REX not Grabbing ball Consistently SOLVED.

Hey guys,

Just wanted to post this here as it may help some of you who are also having problems with the T-Rex not grabbing the ball consistently.

First of all, I did the mechanical adjustments that were listed previously in this thread by Keith and other posters regarding proper alignment of the T-rex. I ensured that when the T-rex opened his mouth that his jaw was resting lightly on the ramp and adjusted the T-rex left and right bias to make her jaw line up with the middle of the ramp. However, she still only grabbed the ball about 20% of the time. The other times it would just go in her mouth come back out and not even start the event. This made me realize that she was not being activated to grab the ball.

I went into switch mode and tested the opto on the trex ramp. it would trigger only if I placed a pinball directly on the ramp. If i raised the pinball even 1/8th of an inch off the ramp the the opto would disengage. I then tested the opto in the "O" lane. I could raise the ball 1/4 to 1/2 and inch and the opto would still be engaged. so with this information I realized I needed to raise the optics on the ramp because my pinball was jumping over the opto 70% of the time. However, there was no easy way to raise the opto as it is attached directly to the ramp. At this point I called Chaz at Stern, explained the problem, and asked if he knew of a way to raise these optics. He did not and suggested write a email and send pictures so he could forward to engineering.

However, once I got off the phone and realized there was not going to be an easy way to raise the optics, I started to think of other solutions. What I came up with is not elegant, but it works.

I covered the bottom half of the opto with tape.(see tape on ramp in the pictures below). This effectively raised the optics without physically moving it.

Now when in switch mode, i could raise the ball about 1/4 to half an inch off the ramp and the opto would still engage.

I then tested in game. Now, once the Trex opens her mouth to start a Trex mode, 100% of the shots to the ramp are recognized(starting the Trex event) and she grabs the ball about 80% - 90% of the time.

This is obviously not a permanent solution, but will work until I think of something else or Stern gets back to me.

hope this helps!

I don’t seem to have an issue with the T-Rex coming down perfectly on the ramp and perfectly centered on the ramp and the mouth seems to close every time the ball gets in the mouth. However the mouth doesn’t always catch the ball it sometimes comes back out even though the jaw has closed. I can’t figure out if it’s cause it’s too hard of a hit, too soft, if the mouth is getting slippery or the ball is too slippery I’m just not sure. Has anyone figured out how to maximize grabs once the ball gets in a closed mouth ?

Oh, I agree, it's not a coincidence.....but why can't they just be truthful? She said they were out of stock, they've shipped to more recent purchasers, etc. Not the first time I've run into this with them not coming out and telling the truth.

#3069 2 years ago
Quoted from ctl723:

My Trex is crashing into the left side of the fence. Not super hard, but enough to bend the wires. I'm not super concerned about her breaking it, but more about long term damage to her paint on that side. Aside from that, the alignment seems great on the center + jaw, so I'm hesitant to adjust things here. Would just changing the left side bias fix this, or would it throw other things out of whack with the center point? From the best I can tell, the fence is attached properly and there isn't a good way to move it further away. Anybody else having this issue?

Mine does this as well, but works perfectly.
Just touches the side a bit. Don't think it will do any damage though.

I have a issue folks.

My power connector is somehow bent to power the shooter rod . Can I bend those back gently? or can I get a adapter from the rod connector to my 8 way splitter nearby with 3 open slots for power?

Thanks.

Get a pair of small needle nose and bend them back, won't hurt anything, just don't keep bending them back and forth to get them perfectly straight as that will weaken them, they just have to be able to insert into the adapter, not perfect

PS do this with the game unplugged

I have a JP topper on order from Tilt as well. I just inquired, and I have been told that mine is shipping with a large run on Friday and that I'll get a shipping confirmation and tracking number on Monday. Hopefully that applies to yours as well. It sure looks great in the pix!

I hope my topper from them is in the same boat. I inquired last week (after the 3 week period I was originally told), and was told there would be a large run Friday last week, or Tuesday (today). Haven't heard back since. Somewhat frustrating, but excited to have it eventually!

My only other mods so far are the Tilt Graphics T-Rex Cup holder and art blades, loving those, and shipping was very fast!

What happened to the helicopter blades? I just got my Premium a couple of days ago, and noticed that the helicopter seems only 1/2 built. I've noticed in this thread (Post #3051 for example) that yours looks just like mine. However, if you go to the Stern page and look at the images of the Premium, the helicopter has 4 blades. I've posted pictures of what mine looks like (first picture), and what Stern shows it should look like (second picture)

Maybe this is addressed already somewhere else, but I'm late to the party, so if someone has an answer, please let me know. I'm about to notify my distributor and inquire, but thought I'd post here first and see if anyone has any insight on what's going on, since it seems like I'm not the only one with a 1/2 built helicopter.
