Hi guys was hoping to get some help, my Avatar was working fine till I moved it an now the right flipper is stuck, from what I’ve read it’s a mechanical issue because the flipper stays up after the button is released, if anyone can help point me in the right direction to what is wrong an how to fix it would be greatly appreciated? Thanks in advance.

Doesn’t. Stay up when you shut the game off ? If so then it is mechanical . I’m guessing that you need to replace the coil stop , coil sleeve and no likely but also the spring . The coil stop can get mushroomed and cause a drag or cause sticking .

Thanks for your reply, yes the flipper stays up when the game is shut off, I’m sure I have those parts handy, will give it a shot an see how I go, thanks again for your help.
