I wonder what kind of QA/QC JJP performs before shipping theses machines? Do they even turn them on?

#1852 1 year ago

So I disconnected and reconnected cables even tried a different hdmi cable still nothing.

#1853 1 year ago

Did you try plugging it into a separate TV/monitor nearby? That will help eliminate which part is bad - the wonkavision, the cable, or something at the CPU side.

#1855 1 year ago

I powered Wonka on, changed the system time (it was a little fast), and left it in attract mode while updating WoZ and the backbox screen went black around midnight... probably a time based bug with rolling back time if someone is inclined to test around tomorrow at midnight. Power cycled and it seems to be alive again.

I saw the SAME thing and took a video. not sure what caused it.

#1857 1 year ago

I have never owned a JJP game before - There seems to be no manual and not one I can download.

Noob Question what is the USB (Female) cable next to the cashbox for ?

I think its for code updates. You download code updates to USB and then attach it to the cable. Its easier than trying to get in through the backbox.

Manuals are being designed as we speak.

They are being written with edible ink so it’s taking longer. Kingpin told me so so it must be true!

Good thought! I will look at trying to do that this evening.

#1862 1 year ago
Quoted from Lermods:

Hi everyone, we are ready to formally introduce our interactive Wonkavator. This Wonkavator fills the area in the back in the SE (may fit le, but haven't tested fit) and is interactive with the spinner super lock, which lights when a Wonkavator ball lock is ready. The Wonkavator features spinning fan blades, inside light and an external color changing RGB spotlight that also lights the outside when the spinner super lock is lit or flashing.
The mod was a joint effort with Random Pinball (aka Toyotaboy) and features Rock Custom Pinball's GameOn technology rock914).
We hope you like it! We have one in stock with more on the way over the next week.

https://lermods.com/shop?olsPage=products%2Fwilly-wonka-the-chocolate-factory-standard-pinball-interactive-wonkavator[quoted image][quoted image]

Wonkavators will be back in stock the week of 8/26. If you are interested, please let me know and we will add you to the list. No payment needed until we are ready to ship. Oh, and these will fit on the LE and CE as the same empty space behind the center ramp exists.

#1863 1 year ago

I’ve sent Shannan two emails and Frank one with no responses. What is going on over at JJP???

#1864 1 year ago

Still waiting for CE info. Isn't it 'soon' already?

Don't leave a message. Just keep calling back until a live person picks up.

CE will be the same as LE minus the bugs.

Your Wonkavision could be bad I had to replace mine as well just ask for a replacement. I was going to suggest to change the hdmi cable, But if you already change the HDMI and nothing works it has to be the wonkavision Which is defective.

#1873 1 year ago

I kind of understand the whole "call until you get a live person" schtick, but come on, it's 2019. If you plan on succeeding as a business these days, you HAVE to respond to emails. Not a good look to just ignore them.

I don’t know I kind of enjoy talking to Frank & Steve.

Maybe it's because people are trying to contact people individually instead of through the support portal and ticket system?

A good distributor can be your best friend too.

So I ran an hdmi to a nearby LCD tv and got nothing on the tv? Not sure if that could have worked but I thought it was a great idea from zaphx (thanks).

I have emailed with JJP support and they got back promptly yesterday but haven’t heard anything today.

#1878 1 year ago

Well I was called by JJP to inform me that they have LE’s ready to ship. I told them I’m holding off until they get these bugs worked out. And mentioned that I know close to a dozen aficionados who were in the same boat. Hopefully they get their act together...

The bugs arent serious and the game is still great. No reason to refuse a game over fixable minor issues

#1881 1 year ago

Wanna bet?

Didn’t think so....

#1882 1 year ago
Quoted from Robertstone0407:

On their own, maybe.

But add them all (diverter, trough, bad video screens, play field quality, etc.) and at ~$8,000+ it’s not minor.

Do you own other pins that can entertain you in the meantime at least?

#1885 1 year ago

Finally got around to matting and framing the poster I got from Chris at KingPin.

#1887 1 year ago

Photos of CE coming within the next 10 days.

#1888 1 year ago

I'm having an absolute blast playing my LE. Best shooting game I've ever had in my collection. Very few adjustments / fixes out of the box but nothing major.

I sure hope so... But call me jaded... LOL

Looks like JJP released a new code update today.

Several changes, including a diverter test.

This one intrigues me: "+ Added support for SE and CE toppers."

Typo maybe? Did they mean LE and CE? I was not aware of an SE topper.

Where did you see this info Sir?

#1892 1 year ago

* Added a cooldown to the upper left magnet so it doesn't fire too much and
get too hot.

So who was having probs with hot magnets? I haven't seen that posted here...

#1895 1 year ago

Adding a diverter test does nothing. Our diverter works. There is a functional issue with bounce back and another issue where it doesn’t come down quick enough. What we need is two adjustments made available in the code. Start time adjustment in ms. And length of time diverter stays active in 1/4 second increments.

#1896 1 year ago

I installed 1.10 and ran the diverter test. You can see it here in this video, it fails many times. Like the ball is pushing right through it.

#1897 1 year ago

Jersey responded to my question about the topper! Oh snap..... could there be an interactive topper coming as an accessory for the SE??

Great! So we proved we have a problem we already knew we had.... :facepalm: when will they add settings to adjust like we actually need

#1900 1 year ago

“Jersey Jack Pinball: We’ll have more info on this very soon.”

Hopefully sooner than it’s been taking them to throw those of us on the CE pre-order list a bone. Didn’t they tell us they hoped to have something to show in a couple of weeks? Way back on April 12? It’ll be 18 weeks as of tomorrow.
