Plastic sets back in stock at PPS for those looking for them.

Quoted from psd4me:

As an fyi my preorder was 2/25/16

Same date (2/25/16) for me. I have been emailed.

Quoted from Vino:

I was early in on a spot for this run and haven't heard anything yet.
A bit nervous as well. Preorder email confirm 3/5/16.
Hold tight or send an email? Do they respond?

I would hold tight. I'm fairly certain that CPR will NOT leave you out high and dry for this run. All the evidence I've seen shows they keep their numbers and counting fairly accurate since the new pre-order system was implemented. Given you're very shortly after my date and the pre-order list was open for months since your date ... I'd say you're safe.

I don't know if they incrementally email when response is received or if they email in bulk on a weekly basis. They do allow 7 days for pre-order response and if they do it in bulk on a weekly basis you won't hear until next week if you're in the next batch.

I was originally antsy when pre-order emails (for other playfields) went out but I realize it is what it is and I am thankful that they even make these reproduction playfields.

Quoted from TheOnlyest:

Maybe because I dont think that's a valid part number. Perhaps a description and location of this switch you seek?

It's switch #23 in the switch matrix. It's named "Left Lock 2 (mid)" on page #74 in the manual.

It might be possible to substitute a different actuator rather than a factory standard. There's no measurements on the dimensions of the actuator that I can find. Perhaps the manuals on PPS' website might have that information.

Or both. Dead batteries that have leaked their alkaline down to U41 and surroundings to interfere with display data lines.

Quoted from yzfguy:

I was wrong...... Just notice today that the flashers do give a brief half flash when I press the flippers. I can't believe I never noticed it, but now I can't unsee it!

You just reminded me of my inability to unsee interlaced video displayed on a progressive device.

Diodes are 1N4004 or better. Buy 100s or 1000s of them at a time.

If you want to rule out a main board issue then short the pins on the board to register the switches in switch test.

Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

Question, if the switch is registering correctly in switch test by actuating the switch how would shorting the same switch at the MPU pins rule out an MPU issue? Please excuse my electronics ignorance, I'm new to this!

Sorry. I missed the detail that the switch is registering correctly in switch test. If that's the case then it's mechanical. It might be the actuator. If you have a new switch body then take the actuator off the old body and mount the new switch. The adjust the switch so that it registers correctly when a ball rolls over it in switch test.

#2867 4 months ago

The switch in question is a Cherry microswitch. You will need to bend the actuator.

Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

Now then, my VUK on the left cellar is having issues firing the ball out, the ball will fire up to the top of the scoop and then fall back down. I have already replaced the coil sleeve without improvement. Adjust the coil position?

Make sure you have the correct coil (strength) installed and that the coil plunger is lined up with the scoop.
