Just got LE #157 today. Was there a certificate enclosed with these? If so we didn’t get one...

#1416 3 months ago
Quoted from mjruser:

How long ago did you order?

Around when it was announced and we got it today. It’s born on date was 2 days ago

#1419 3 months ago

Here is the LE we got today!

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

#1513 3 months ago

Getting a switch error on D05, Elevated Diverter...not having the manual, I have no clue where this one is. Anyone know?

#1518 3 months ago
Quoted from LTG:

Diverter under the little building on the left ramp. Goes down to divert the ball and up to let ball go by.
LTG : )

Got it. Thank you!

#1527 3 months ago

Any ideas on this error? Its my dads machine and I’m not there to help him unfortunately...could this be the dreaded trough board issue?

#1529 3 months ago
Quoted from Pinballomatic:

Check the power connectors and switch connector on the trough opto boards - wiggle them like you would a loose tooth - see if you've got a loose or bad connection.

I’m running to his house probably in a few hours. I just hope it’s as simple as a connection and not a bad opto board. This is is first pin so trying to explain stuff over FaceTime can be challenging lol

Quoted from Freakyguy666:

Helping parents with technology is so fun!

It’s something. Good thing he only lives up the road about 10 minutes lol

#1534 3 months ago

So if I remove the 6th ball, the trough error goes away...obviously it’s a bad board

#1612 3 months ago
Quoted from PokerJake:

I'm putting it up for a JP Premium. I'm really turned of by JJPs with the trough board/ball issue that it shipped with. Although they did ship out a replacement that took over a week to get here (the 300lb game only took 2 days), the fact they make you pay for shipping to return the defective trough or they'll charge you for the replacement part just doesn't sit right. After buying 7 (soon to be 8 ) Sterns NIB and 2 CGC remakes NIB without any issue, this just left a sour taste in my mouth. It's still a fun game that has the best flow around and good strategy once you understand the rules. Luckily mine hasn't had the diverter issue, I haven't noticed one bounce back or reject.

That really sucks about having to send back the trough on your dime. My dad has the trough issue also and they sent out new boards. They should hopefully be here sometime this week.

Quoted from Insanity199:

Is this a Jersey Jack accessory that can be added to any of the more modern standard editions? How much did it run?
Up to this point my JJP machines have been LEs. However, this is the first machine where I may consider standard as long as I can add headphone support in a clean way.

It can be added directly from jjp. I asked about it last week and here is the email from JJP:
“Hello Dan,
Part number 99-030009-00 Headphone Jack Assy-Price-$43.99
Part number 19-003115-01-Headphone Jack Harness-Price- $39.99
Plus shipping and handling”

Quoted from inverted1:

I like the oompah's, and was hoping to find some 3D models of them to print. There are a few things on thingiverse, but no oompa's. I printed a couple of these wonka W's.[quoted image]

Ohhh I may make these on my cnc machine!!

#1638 3 months ago
Quoted from Adipocere:

Beware their shipping and handling fees. Apparently they ONLY use UPS. I got quoted $22 in shipping fees when I tried to buy a $20 ball cap from them.

Yea that’s a bit insane!!

#1764 3 months ago

So today, the Gobstopper just decided to stop working...made some slight grinding sound and stopped...ugh...anyone else experience this?

#1767 3 months ago
Quoted from mitgrad93:

Just got my Wonka LE on Friday. Set it up on Saturday. It worked great for all of two hours until I got the opto problem that a few people have been reporting (Trough error: All optos active). Now it's essentially unplayable (unless someone has a suggestion on how to work around this failure until JJP sends me a replacement board).
What a huge disappointment. I've been waiting for this machine for months, only to have it crap out after less than 20 games. Hopefully JJP is learning from this failure and will incorporate a check for this failure this into their QA process.[quoted image]

unfortunley happened to a lot of machines...the fix is to remove the 2 opto boards and re-flow the solder on every LED and connector...will be up and running again in 20 mins! Its a workaround that will work and just keep the spare boards for a rainy day

#1807 3 months ago

Anyone know what to look for to figure out why the gobstopper stopped spinning?

#1831 3 months ago

Ive emailed Shannan twice in the last week without response...is there anyone else to contact at JJP regarding parts?

#1863 3 months ago

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

#1867 3 months ago
Quoted from LTG:

Shannan was out for a bit and just got back today. Email them again.
LTG : )

I’ve emailed Frank as well. No response

#1869 3 months ago
Quoted from smalltownguy2:

See my above message.

Going to call here in a few. Thank you

Does anyone’s Wonka have an odd boot up sequence? When we turn it on, it will turn on, start booting up, then then off, then back on quickly, loud pop, etc...is this normal?
