My EOS switches were both pretty well cashed so I swapped them both for brand new ones. Now everytime I hit the flipper the playfield lights flash/flicker. It was never like that.

If I hold the ball in the right flipper for a bit, I can actually see distortion in the video monitor like there's a degaussing coil nearby.

Any ideas of what this could be? Game plays fine otherwise.

Could old coils that still seem to work fine be the cause?

Thanks!

Quoted from zacaj:

Most ballys I've played cause the GI to dim when the flippers are fired. There's no filter cap on the lamp supply, so it'd be sorta hard for them not to.

The only catch is it didn't do it until I replaced the EOS switches last night....
