    Might need to adjust your button linkage or stop using led balls.

    If they are original, can imagine the plastic gets brittle, especially with UV exposure, the plastic parts in my 90's car are brutally fragile now.

    My Pinbot did nearly the exact same thing about 2 years ago. I guess the plastic gets soft as it ages.

    Flipper plastics as well as all plastics become brittle with age.

    This is the reason I install new flipper bats with every shop or restore job for clients.
