I'm in. My first NIB pin!!

My JJP support experiences have been hit or miss. Most recently, no reply to emails from a week ago. Their handling of the WOZ lighting issues is less than stellar.

So they’re all faulty troughs. Got it.

My local location Wonka is down waiting for a replacement trough/opto board.

Quoted from Trooper11040:

so I’ll ask Did any LE owners get a certificate??

Unboxed LE #57 today, born date 07-26-2019, no certificate just the plate you attach with the black screws at the top of the backbox.

#1568 1 year ago

I had a problem with the gobstopper subway constantly firing the sideways kicker coil underneath. Turns out one of the opto's had popped off (they just clip into holes in the metal) and so game thought a ball was there all the time. Easy fix, if it happens again I might try securing it better with hot glue.

Quoted from Lermods:

Ok, here's mine in a dimly lit room, start button pushed. A little dark in the middle, but not too bad.
I also posted a picture of the rubber on my left inlane. I trimmed it slightly to keep the ball from getting stuck.[quoted image][quoted image]

I'm seeing an LED strip under the back of the cabinet, one in the trough, and mirror blades. Anything else lermods ? I'm thinking of adding some lighting to my LE and like what you have, maybe add two spot lights to the middle playfield area. Wonka is a little dark, definitely not WoZ dark though.

Diverter is broke on the Ocelot Brewing Wonka too, doesn't work at all.

#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.

#2012 1 year ago

Trough test show issues?

#2042 1 year ago

Sad you got downvoted, you’re not wrong. Mine didn’t arrive with the clear damage, but here we are a few weeks later. Clear on these playfields is soft and seemingly uncured.

Quoted from wesman:

Is that a tear? I can relate...
How did that happen???

The bottom of the apron pealed the clear and base coat color up from the factory. I only noticed it because I removed the apron to install some trough up lighting. Sucks. As I said these issues aren't present when they ship per-say, because I suspect the clear coat is still curing and pliable, the pressure on the clear is damaging them over time. You can see the ripples in front of the star posts are more significant in the direction the rubber pulls them. Not my expectation for a $10k pinball machine.

ltg am I correct in assuming JJP won't be addressing these issues for owners?

Quoted from knockerlover:

Still dealing with very frequent reset issues... it doesn't appear to be software related.. rolled back from 1.14 to 1.06, tried 1.13.. reseated all the cables in the backbox.. still does it maybe 1/5-10 games.

I was playing wonkavator multiball when it did it to me yesterday. Whole game went dark and rebooted. Like someone hit the reset button on the power supply. Over current protection? Has JJP support been helpful knockerlover ?
