Are there any distributors offering free shipping for a Wonka SE? I do have a local distributor but he only accepts cash for free shipping and I was hoping to instead use Paypal credit.

Quoted from LTG:

Might be hard to find. They aren't supposed to give extras anymore.
LTG : )

Thanks. The MSRP is all the same which I understand. But I do notice distributors will have differences in shipping costs, figured some of them are offering it for free.

Quoted from Lermods:

I just checked the box and there is a plastic tube in it, I missed it, back to install it.
The 3d lines are only visible in close up shots, the quality looks very good to me[quoted image]

What part of the movie does this mod reference? The white machine thing and red tubing look familiar but I don't remember from what. This mod and the mushroom grassy knoll mod look nice.

I'm very close to buying my first pinball machine, a Wonka LE. I noticed Jerseyjack's website doesnt charge tax if you're out of State. I live in California. Does this shithole State hold people ransom and force payment of Use Tax, or is it supposed to voluntarily be paid?

#2702 13 days ago

Do the majority of Wonka players leave the posts removed that are between the flippers and on the drain chute in the far left, or are they supposed to be installed? I want to play and achieve high scores as how it was intended. Jersey Jack left them off when unpacking my LE, so i am assuming that is how they want you to play the game?

Quoted from bigd1979:

Between the flippers? Also i bought my le used and the left outlane has a post installed in the lowest hole... im keeping it like this bc the game is still difficult with brutal outlanes.

Maybe there isnt a screw hole between my flippers. But there is definitely one for the left outlane. The balls drops through there a lot without the post installed, but i feel like im handicapping myself too much if i put it on, so I'm not sure what to do as how it was designed and intended

Quoted from branlon8:

I like the way there is so much information in the display and then there’s that light show - wow

The light show is excellent on this game, especially when you play with the house lights dimmed or off. This machine feels like it just needs some good toy mods to feel complete, as the movie has many gizmos and contraptions to do so.

After two fun days of playing my LE, it will now not boot up. Nothing is displayed on the LCDs, and no computer fans spin. All I hear is a faint hum when i power on, so i know it's getting power. I read on here this could happen if you turn the pinball machine on and quickly turn it back off, which is the last thing i did before this happened.

From what i read, I think i have to place a jumper on the reset pins on the motherboard. I couldnt figure out how to get to the motherboard after removing the translite. Is there a thread on Pinside showing how to do this? It doesnt have to be specifically for Wonka, any JJP game is probably built similarly

Quoted from LTG:

Did Steve help you ?
If so this picture will help.
LTG : )[quoted image]

I got it fixed. Had to short the two PWR pins on the motherboard as suggested by him. Thank you.

Before this happened, the last thing i did on my machine was turn it on, then i turned it back off after about 5 seconds. So something hiccupped when turning it off prematurely like that.

Quoted from zaphX:

I was digging around in the settings a few days ago and there were always some settings to make those modes easier. However my better half forbids any changes that make the game easier as "that is cheating!"

Yes, I leave everything at default too. I'd rather die a man hitting gutter balls than go to the kiosk and ask the attendant to put up the bumpers.

Quoted from Jdlana:

Is there a rubber kit available for this game? A lot of my rubber is abraiding and flaking and i can't find a kit for it. Does anyone know if one is available for Wonka or if i can buy a rubber kit for different game?

My rubber is starting to disintegrate too. I'm wondering if a rubber dressing like this would work well with the rubber? It act like a conditioner for the rubber and absorbs into it, keeping it from being too dry and brittle. I use this stuff on my car around all the rubber trim and it lasts for a very long time. Not sure if it would affect ball movement though.

I'm glad they didn't put Willy Wonka on the topper, his mug is already in enough spots.
