Quoted from apinballwiz:

Probably the strip went bad, they fail somewhat frequently. You could check the voltage going to it - I want to say 12 volts but I don’t recall offhand, best to check the manual. Fortunately replacement led strips are rather inexpensive. Good luck!

Most every non-RGB light is 12v, so good assumption. Someone else posted recently that this went out, I think they even have it on the JJP web store.

#7603 22 days ago

I didn't like the solid LED light on the state fair balloon and the flame LED from comet was anything but.. it's just a rotating flashing light. So, I bought some flickering LED bulbs and they are way more realistic and pretty freaking bright

1 LED https://photos.app.goo.gl/yGKeovZqhy6nsYt78
2 LEDs https://photos.app.goo.gl/VJ4JHdnGzwoJdSoG7

I have a bunch leftover if anyone wants to do this, I think I had to buy 20 at a time.

Tried to do regular maintenance on my WOZ RR today and found the Test report shows
"Check matrixes switch #70 RESCU(E) (stuck open)"

I have not lifted up the playfield to check. But do I need to order a new switch for it? or I need to take out the castle play field to confirm?

Thanks.

Is there anything to check ?

12 volts DC at the connector ? If yes. You need to get a new led strip.

Stuck open? Sounds like maybe a wire came loose... usually those switches only need to be replaced if the contacts wear out. Shouldn't be that kind of wear yet. Stuck close I would assume the switch needs adjusting then, but stuck open sounds like a broken solder joint? Lloyd?

#7608 22 days ago

Since it's 12v you could also just grab a small green LED strip and splice it in.

This.

I just went through this too. The part number for the LED strip is 19-003016-00. I’d call them as they had them in stock even though site says out of stock.

Checked out your videos. It looks good! Is it just me or does the two led version look more flickery compared to the single led? The 1 led video looks more like a blink than a flicker. Are these different bulbs (two diodes in one lamp) or two separate bulbs? I'm guessing the former since I assume these are mounted like standard pop bumper body lights with one socket threaded into the middle of the pop body.

I didn't look specifically, so I'm not sure if they blink randomly or if they have the same pattern. I am guessing the former, so two probably gives a more flickering look. They are individual 12v LEDs with wire leads. In the video I'm just holding them there, hooked up to a 12v power source. I retrofitted them into a bulb base so I could plug it into the socket I installed in the pop bumper. I just did one for right now, can easily swap it out for two. I need to see how it looks in the game with all of the lights on, I think one might be too dim.

Did you press the (E) in test mode to see if it registers? You will get a test report simply if a switch hasn’t been activated in a while. The E is hard to hit, so it may be working fine, and you just haven’t hit it in the game lately.

Yes, I did. While I press "E" switch, you wouldn't register.

You may have to take out the castle playfield to look. Could just be a broken wire if that is the only switch having issues.

Updated the code on my ECLE to 7.01 today. Hooray!

I first tried Unetbootin, b/c that was listed first on JJP's page, & it had lots of nice hand-holding screen grabs spelling out the settings & where to click.

But...it didn't work. Got this error when booting WOZ:
20190525_100539 (resized).jpg

Then went w/ Rufus & its default settings:
20190525_101014 (resized).jpg
Worked!

Settings backed up before the update & restored after the update.

All seems well. Hooray!
Now, I the hardest part will be finding time to play...

#7616 21 days ago

Excited to finally join the club! Just picked up a 2015 RR 75th Anniversary and 2 things stand out. The lights seem to behave rather strange with constant flickering / ghosting (see vid). And the monkey magnet seems rather weak and doesn't hold the ball. Might be worth noting it still has the old 5.0 software. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

#7617 21 days ago
Quoted from adamross:

Reseat all connectors involved with it. Back of big metal box with all the boards.Shove the connector together tight both sides of the metal wall.

Quoted from adamross:

Check data harnesses and power connector to each board. Be sure they are on tight, and no wire sticking out of one. Then treat like a failed LED board, find last working one, first one after it that is flickering is the problem.

#7619 21 days ago

Has anyone had issues with the back of their haunted trees breaking? Specifically around the mounting nuts. I bought a used RR and the PO had that issue and then one of the trees that it came to me with had that same issue. The threaded rod that the hex spacer mounts to (the rod that comes off the metal bumper skirt) also snapped and left the end inside the hex spacer. On the SE WOZ that I've had for some time I never once had an issue with the trees or any part of the pop bumper. I was able to fab up a hex spacer to replace it and luckily I had a spare tree. Also... I had to dremel a whole ton off the back of the tree to get the nuts to thread on at all.

Quoted from thanhdlam1985:

I installed my first mod on my WOZ RR. I added a second screen on the apron. No cutting or drilling. It was so easy![quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Details please!!!

#7621 21 days ago

Just a little mod that I've wanted to do. Sorry for the upside down video. It's the winky light up target but when it goes down, the light turns off. It's purple in this test, it's the bulb I had on hand. I was annoyed by the light still being on when the target was down so I fabbed up a little switch that triggers when it is down. Was tough to fit it in there with the other matrix switch that is on the mech. Pretty happy with the results.

#7622 21 days ago

Makes putting the wireform back in a heck of a lot easier. You can put the nut on ahead of time and just slide it in. For whatever reason the RR I just bought has way less room to put this in than my SE. With the SE I could get a long socket down in there but there was no way on this one. But, once the wireform was slid on the post I could just get the long socket and extension in there to tighten down.

#7623 21 days ago

Just got the game back together. Coils are still dangling, waiting on sleeves. All of the lighting is installed except I am adding an additional flickering flame shooting out below the state fair balloon. I am going to change some of the bulbs as well, the purple is getting a bit too homogenized. It's less so in person but still a bit much. Maybe I'll add some dimmers so I can control each set of spots.

I noticed one of my trees is cracked in the back like that, haven't ordered a replacement yet and it hadn't happened before. Have had the game for about 3 years.

#7625 20 days ago

Here's it with a few accent flame lights near the pop bumper.

Not sure I care for it much, might move them around.

Happy day here. Picked this up yesterday, set it up today. Man, it’s gonna take some time to figure this one out. I assume it’s much deeper than say, TZ? Can’t wait to log some hours on it!

Wooo, welcome. Yes, maybe the deepest game I've played, close with JJPOTC.

JJPOTC was a contender for me. There is a JJPOTC CE at Zanzabar in Louisville, close to where I live. I put in a few hours on it and man....what a game! Wish LEs were more plentiful. I have a feeling they’ll go up in price, not down...

LEs are basically unobtanium. Some SE's around and my feeling (along with the general consensus in the POTC threads) is that if you want a POTC get the SE if you can. Jury is out as to if they will make any more with Wonka on the line. The most important parts of the LE can be added or modded.

Any tips on finding the connector that goes to the monkey? Just to clarify, the monkey moves it's the magnet that isn't working.

There is a connector near the monkey magnet in the rear of the playfield. The manual has the I/O board pinouts. You can download the manual from jerseyjackpinball.com - Support - Downloads.

I used to ask a lot of these questions too, until Lloyd kept referring me to the manual and then I realized, yes... the manual has almost everything you need. Sometimes it was harder to find specifics but if I used the bookmarks and then skimmed a bit, sure enough it's all there. Now I just have the PDFs of the JJP manuals I need on my desktop, mostly always open in my PDF reader.

#7633 20 days ago

Ok I probably need to read the rule book, but when I first launch the ball, I am assuming I cannot change the lane with my flipper to light it green to get a skill shot?

Not for the skill shot, but during regular game play, the flippers control the upper lanes.

Correct, no lane change (edit: during the skill shot). but you dont want to bother with that any way . You can short plunge and hit the witch, or whichever "BALL" standup is lit, or the skill shot between the pops (those will all payoff much bigger). For me, on my first ball i skip all that and hard plunge to get into the pops (so i can try to start a haunted mode) however, I am admittedly not a very good WOZ player. lol.

I've been working on the haunted skill shot. I get it once every few shots so it seems to pay off. Otherwise I go witch, I have never gotten "BALL" skillshot.

#7638 20 days ago

Howdy-

2 lighting questions:

1. The throne room wizard head has a bit of flicker. Not the consistent pulsing when it's "lit" for a shot.
Sign of LED strip pooping out? Reseat connector? Other?

2. After playing for a bit (15 minutes-ish, sometimes longer?) some of the light boards go out or go dim & "freeze." No real pattern to which ones go unresponsive or their particular behavior.
I don't *think* it's a case of a board going out & all boards downstream also go out.
A hard reset of the machine always fixes the lights.
The delay before misbehavior, & the inconsistency suggests...a heat issue? Reseat or wiggle the RGB LED board cables?

Game is ECLE S/N 0196, an early build. Has 5V PCBs, except W5 Haunted Forest PCB is 7.5V.

Thank you,
-Jason

Loose connection or worn fatigued cable at this point.
Consider the 2.0 upgragde now, 5v games are getting pretty old...

Only got it a few times on more. It’s an extremely late flip for 10K points .

I’m really enjoying the Horse of a different Color challenge . I’ve had 6 horses on the bottom left of the screen but not 7.
I’m still learning how it all works. All the same Color horse or all different colours to progress to 5 horses. The cow and the red horses are the most valuable from what I can tell.The chameleon horse is wild obviously but of how much value I do not know.

I JUST got it.. this thread got me wanting to try it out more. It was accidental, I mean I was going for it but didn't even see what letter I needed, just trying to get the shot.

I have no idea how the horses work, I need to look in to that. I just shoot the shots I only just started getting the munchkin loop enough times, lol.

#7642 20 days ago

Play a few games and concentrate only on HOADC,you'll soon begin to see how it works.

Shoot for 4 horses at the start of each game.Same color or 4 different colors.

Backhand from the right flipper and hold the right flipper button in keeping the upper right flipper open for a collect.

Plunge the ball.Now there are 5 horses to collect and so on.

#7643 20 days ago

I have to ask once since I keep hearing it ..

What exactly is "backhand" .. Does that mean if I'm using the left flipper and I use the upper portion of the flipper and the ball goes to the left that I'm backhanding the left flipper?

Correct.

#7646 20 days ago

Collecting HOADC is one of the most powerful things you can do in a game because it multiplies your Munchkin mode points if you collect successfully. It is a very difficult shot since it can be so powerful. Just try stacking something like Munchkin frenzy with a crystal ball multiplier and a multiball and have the Munchkin multiplier active as well. Your bonus will be insane. (The Munchkin mode awards are collected during the bonus phase.). Just don’t tilt or it all goes away. I had a 400,000 point bonus once. I think that was the most I’ve ever collected.

Makes sense. I love the basic stacking of multiball and crystal ball, combine that with the munchkin and it's a hoot. Would be nice to have another to add on, so HOADC is now on my list to complete.

I love my WOZ and Dialed in CE so much Im going to get POTC now. But I only have room for one more pin, what u guys think get POTC or wait for toy story?

If TS ends up being on par with Wonka I would go POTC. That was the choice I made in almost the exact same spot, POTC over Wonka.
