Our Cleopatra's left kick hole works on start up, kicks after a ball is lost, and scores and moves the lights on the playfield like it is supposed to, but when the ball drops into the hole, nothing...

Anyone have any suggestions?

Does it do the same sequence every time or is it random?
Look for loose or poor coil and switch connections, etc.
Check the harness pins and connections from the Driver PCB.
Check the Xistor that fires that coil.
Check the switch matrix connectors at the cpu pcb and maybe a possible leaky diode?

I had a similar issue with my Count-Down kick out hole at the top but it was random.
Turned out it was a flaky Driver Transistor.

It works every time in the situations I detailed above. Only when the ball pushes down the switch does it not kick.
