The middle bowling ball drop target is not responding on my simpsons.
It goes down but they three targets will not reset after that. I assume it's a trigger on the back side that must be sticky or something but it's so difficult to get to .

Any advice?

Check that the contacts are touching on the leaf switch....might need to be cleaned or just replace. Easy thing to do is to go into switch mode and trigger it under the playfield.

The switch is dirty, needs adjustment, or a wire broke off. The bank will not reset because the game still thinks the middle target is up

thanks guys,

fiddled around with the leaf switch and got it to work. i have no idea how to clean the switch without turning the play field upsides down or taking the whole assembly apart.... will give it a better try this weekend.
