I noticed something strange today related to the slam ramp activation at the start of each ball that I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced.
The insert was lit awaiting my plunge, I made the shot up the ramp, but no slam ramp activation and the insert light goes out immediately telling me it knows the left inlane switch was activated. What was real interesting is that during play after the initial ball plunge the ramp activation worked perfectly every time.
Just to make sure the problem wasn't with the switch itself I tested it in switch test and all was fine. I did discover while playing around with the glass off that the right of the two left inlanes would activate the slam ramp at the start of the ball, but not the left.
I continued investigating on the playfield before making it to the backbox and suddenly everything came back to normal and the ramp was activated after a new ball plunge.
Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe it's an ever so loose connection somewhere that I need to chase down, but its very strange that it only happened at the start of each ball consistently, and the slam ramp activated fine during the rest of that ball. Leds me to believe it might be more of a programming glitch that comes and goes?
