Quoted from zaphX:
I was considering hopping on a plane to MGC to try Wonka, but the Friday preview tickets are sold out.
You can take a plane to France. Jack and willy wonka pin will be there this weekend at Flip Expo in Le Treport.
Where can I find my Willy Wonka Le numbered plate to attach above the screen?
I can't find it.
Is there a fix for the ball not rolling from the "most secret machine"-lock tot the kicker in the shooterlane?
Has anyone put an extra spotlight on his game to light up the center playfield?
Where can I get 6v for my spotlight?
I see that some ledboards has empty "spotlight" connectors.
Is it possible to plug some extra spotlights in these boards?
I would like to ad 2 extra spotlights to light up the middle playfield.
Quoted from Lermods:
I don't think it will work right. You can tap into the existing spots, they are all on the same board, but dont think you can plug into the other boards where there are open headers labeled "spotlight" and get a steady light. I've tested it and haven't had good results.
maybe some of the modders can make this?
2 small white spots/leds with an Y-splitter to hook up on the other spots/leds.
My camera led never works.
also not in lamp test.
Is it connected correct to the board?
Quoted from crobby:
New guy question since my machine seems to have the same issue: What's the best way to get the wire out of and back into that connector?
use a very very small screwdriver.
you must lift a lip from the plastic connector to pull out the wire and the pin. If you lift the lip, this will go easy.
now just slide the pin with the wire in the correct place of the connector.
that's it !!
Quoted from HOOKED:
Just recieved my second Wonka this one being an upgrade Le. I would recommend a mother level of QC and tracking for each QC inspector like other pinball companies do. For example my SE had 6 of the GI string lamps miss routed. Meaning left side outlane and slightly GI were plugged in the wrong spot. I noticed because the color changing GI and the extra ball light between the flippers lit without reason. My front decal was crinkled around the coin door bolts and shooter. They did send a replacement decal but it too was folded (no kidding folded have pictures) and the second replacement too was folded. Moving on to my LE -same issue to a lesser extent at the coin door. Bigger issue is my LE plaque cannot be installed due to the mounting hardware you scew it to (assuming t-nuts) are missing. My shaker sound like like something is rubbing inside. The game is a dream theme for me and my family the build quality control is lacking on these expensive toys.
Last note 20 games in my mylar around the gobstopper shot is separating at each dimple. Where the two molars meet in the picture.

My game is also missing the t-nuts in the backbox to mount the LE plate.
Quoted from mtp78:
So I got my le sitting next to potc and DI. Wonka seems really dark with lights off.so much I cant follow the ball that well.
The middle and back of the machine is dim. What are you guys using for extra lighting ? I am not a fan of pin stadiums . Anyone ? Thx
I’m going to ad a few spotlights
