Hey guys, I got an Alien Poker that I'm working on and have two issues. First is with the center drop targets. I took them all apart to see what's going on and saw that they use the new replacement circuit boards for all five of the drop targets, and I can see the faint marks from the horse shoe triggers going right down the middle so everything is aligned right. I went ahead and cleaned the horse shoe contacts and the circuit board contacts as well just in case. All five plastic rails are good, I replaced two that were possibly sketchy but now they are assembled nice and tight with nothing cracked. In testing they work perfectly, the way the game works is that you have to hit the targets in order otherwise they pop back up, and I can hit targets 2, 3, 4 and 5 all day long and they will always pop right back up, so it seems like the drop target assembly works perfectly.
The weird issue is that on rare occasion if you hit two drop targets just right, then the out of order hit target won't pop back up. It's rare, but I have seen it happen. I'm curious, is this possibly a known issue with system 6 drop targets? On most games it wouldn't matter, it's only an issue on Alien Poker because the targets are supposed to pop back up when not hit in order. Given that I never see the issue when hitting targets individually, it makes me wonder if those old drop targets can just act weird in rare cases when two are hit exactly right.
The second issue is with the right most flipper. On power up it works but after a few minutes what happens is that when you press the right flipper, rather than snap into position it will move up in extreme slow motion, it takes about 5 seconds to get fully into position. Does that sound like the coil needs to be replaced?
EDIT: Adding one more in case anyone knows. I fully led'd this machine, except for the pop bumpers. All the led lights I've tried won't sit tightly in them because the pop bumpers don't use a typical light slot. So I'd need to find an led bulb that has the same notch to lip distance as standard incandescent bulbs do. I know cointaker bulbs don't work, anyone by chance know who sells some that would fit?
