I've got a Batman Forever that makes a loud clicking sound when certain lights flash. At first I thought it was coming from one of the LED bulbs in the head, but found out that it was coming from the board itself. It only happens when certain lights flash. Is this normal?

It's the relay that controls the on/off of the GI. Normal. (For Stern/Sega/Data East for sure. Probably others too. )

Yup - that's what DE and Sega games do. CLICK CLICK CLICK. Totally normal.

It's a relay - an electromechanical switch. Totally normal.

Thanks for the quick reply - it seems really loud in a home setting but I guess that's just the way it is.
