    Default Macross Frontier 2 - Fever trap clicking

    Just got Macross Frontier 2 today. Plugged it in and was greeted with a E-99, but was able to dismiss. Translation said something about it's a "first time start-up error", which I was able to press the chance button to remove.

    This machine has what appears to be a retractable trap that opens and closes into the cell during fever. My problem is it's constantly clicking in and out. This machine needs some TLC all-up, which I'll do this evening but any thoughts are appreciated!

    Is it in high probability mode. Trap doors and tulips often fire open and closed if a ball passes through the sub roulette gate. Not sure if your machine has one.
    The fact its a V pocket implies it's meant to open for you to get a ball in to progress through the game.

    Oh I'm guessing this is a pachinko, not pachislo.

    I'm not sure is it's in high probability mode. I should have noted that it's just doing this without any play. The clicking is driving me nuts.

    Also, because I'm reading challenged. Would an admin please move this post to the Pachinko Troubleshooting Tickets topic? Will attempt to be more mindful moving forward (the thread right before this one on Lupin is also mis-categorized)

    i own this machine, just live the clicking, when you play you won't hear clicking sound, this machine has lots of moving parts, and in fever modes, 3 different doors open, one of them is that clicking door, also if you just leave running, there a 5 minute concert every hour, which is loud

    No problem. Now moved
    Although as it's sounds like normal gameplay, it's in the modern section.

    If it hasn't been powered on awhile, when you first turn on, there are 4 arms that move them top area and bottom area, in game play, the lights might be out, as you play more, they will start to work correctly, and they will come out often, my machine doesn't like not being played, so when not powering on for a month, I have this problem

    All I know is: I cannot be worse than the Starwars BODV games clicking. Even with mine turned off...that rotary piece "grinds". I am not sure if I should evern WD40 that sucker to keep it lubed... it is loud.

    Thanks for the assist everyone! I was really hoping it was an issue as the clicking is about 3-4 sec is infuriating, but as folks have said- it's pachinko after all

    actually, I play this machine in the parlor and that stopper always opens and closes during normal game play to give that feature more of a ‘random’ feel to it when it falls in the V.

    It may sound anoying, but it comes more into play during the rush sequence and when the ball
    falls in the V during the rush mode, that triggers a fever. That V is an important hole for the gameplay!

    If it is plastic. DO NOT use WD40 on it! Petroleum products destroy plastic. It will run quiet for awhile...then crumble.

    The more you know...

    Thanks for the tip! Didn't know that. I was being somewhat facetious as I wouldn't know how to best to apply it anyway without ruining the stickers etc.

    There's some plastic-safe lubricants you can use, I have some I got for use on model trains. You probably would want to avoid using a spray, and use as little as possible, if you must.

    Most of my animatronic heavy machines are loud (when they move). As they turn on, it sounds like they struggle really hard, but the noise of the machine cancels it out during ply.

    I bought LPS dry film silicone lubricant and eyeliner brushes to apply to the moving plastic bits. Iím hoping that helps. Would be curious to know what others have done here.

    I have this machine as well, and that trap door clicks constantly too. I think my pin placement is weird because it looks impossible for the ball to get into the left side hole. :-/

    Does anyone know what other cells fit into this Macross 2 frame?

    It's this bad boy and it says "Frontier" on the frame behind the joystick thing. I think there are Evangelion cells that fit into it as well but not 100%.
