Hello fellow Pinheads! Quarantine has given me some extra time to mess with my solid state Buck Rogers machine. Electrically everything on my Varitarget appears to be working fine. Through lots of tweaking on the spring tension, resting position and Bakelite adjusting I've been able to achieve two different states.
1. Cycling 1-5 works, the plate returns to base, but the bonus features (drop target multipliers and extra ball lit) are not awarded.
2. Cycling 1-5 works, the plate rarely returns to base, but the extra features are awarded.
Situation 1 just leaves you bummed out that you fought to the top with nothing to show for it. Situation 2 is like easy mode where you constantly get extra balls and multipliers. Has anyone found some magic to get the 1-5 to cycle, plate return to base and features awarded?
