Quoted from Agima2000:

The service is even underground.
I asked the JJP Google groups if there was a solution to the problem, they had a very quick fix for me.
Within 1 minute I was deleted from the group.
I've had all 4 JJP pinball machines so far, so I'm out now.

Are you serious????? Absolutely unbelievable.............

Quoted from Psw757:

Well, for some reason it just isn’t happening yet. In the past I would agree with you. I just posted a couple of my photos in the POTC thread with game and case number like you requested we all do. It’s real and for the POTC owners going on 6-8 months of nothing now from JJP.

I think the fact that POTC wasn't even mentioned during Jack's speech makes be think that the current playfield offer to POTC owners is the best they're going to do. Probably a similar offer coming to Wonka owners. Sure hope I'm wrong and owners of these machines are made whole when the problem is finally identified and rectified.

Quoted from Ballypinball:

Maybe they might ship your playfield back to the factory and swap all your parts over to another, But I cant see them shipping entire New Populated Playfields

If I had to pay for an unpopulated playfield I wouldn't like it, but knowing how awesome these games are it wouldn't sting as much if they offered to pay for shipping and do the swap for owners. I think that would go a long way in restoring confidence and good faith in JJP, as long as the new playfields are stable as they should be of course. Would be the least expensive way for JJP than sending populated playfields (which they can't afford) to make things right and make owners whole IMO. Owners should not have to be responsible for the herculean task of doing a playfield swap on their own. Just my .02 cents worth.

Quoted from Psw757:

Over the last two days they have stepped up and are sending free PF’s to the POTC owners with chipping.

Just read that, thank you. One step in the right direction!!!

Quoted from jfh:

No one knows. Jack has declined to provide details.

Think I read somewhere that Jack was asked at expo if the root cause of the playfield clear issues had been determined and a fix identified. He said yes to both, but would not elaborate any further. I would think the newest builds have whatever fix was implemented, guess we'll find out....
