Hi All!

My Cactus is suffering a very strange problem. It's been off for a few months until today because some idiot punched through the glass, and I haven't vacuumed it out since. (It's got scratches on the playfield from the broken glass).


Tested it and it all works except that the auto plunge doesn't fire.
In test mode the shooter switch works, all 4 trough switches work and the auto-launch fires in the solenoid test.

But does not in game, except....it did a couple of times when testing multiball. A couple of times when it should have fired hundreds of times.

Anyone got any idea here?

Shooter lane switch not working, or not staying closed when a ball is on it.

LTG : )

Shooter Lane Switch has broken glass in it!

Hi, thanks for the replies folks....

No, the shooter lane switch operates absolutely fine in the test.
Easy to activate, and stays down with the ball as it should.

This was the first thing i checked,
the auto-launch is just not being triggered in-game, like a game defect not an operating defect.

Any clues would be appreciated...thanks!

Sorted it. Took the batteries out (one was leaking, oops!!!) and also took the PinSound guys remote credit device off the coin door connector
(which doesn't work so well on WPC95 - fine on my Creature) and it now auto plunges.
