Got a couple issues with my Big Guns pin I could use some troubleshooting help with.
1. Ball saver is randomly popping up and down during play (not lit). When hitting the Green W/L at top it does light up and act normal. Will go back to random popping up and down after though. //Possible the AE-26-1200 Coil is bad? maybe the contact is needing cleaning? Spring?

2. While playing, 3X light is always flashing. When in Attract mode it's Not flashing odd, acting normal.

I'm very new with Pins but I like fixing things and hands on work so any help troubleshooting these 2 issue would be most appreciated.

The flashing X shows what multiplier is needed to light EB.

Oh, ok so that's supposed to happen. Thanks so much for that info.

Still could use some troubleshooting help with the popping up/down ball saver. If it helps I have noticed it's gotten worse over time, popping up and down randomly a lot more frequently now.

go into coil test and see if any solenoids or flashers makes the shield pop up/down

Check the switch on the ball saver popup, it might be flakey and the game is just trying to pop it down

Fixed.

Turns out it was the spring that holds it into place when it's down was old, losing it's pull strength. I just tightened that spring up and it's working 100% now.

Thanks to everyone for your ideas on this. This is a great community and I'm glad to be part of it.
