    I have a sling shot that gos off on its own multiple time during game play on my lethal weapon 3. How do you go about fixing this problem???????

    Your switches might be overly sensitive, I've seen this on several machines. A slight nudge will trigger them.

    Power off, adjust contact gaps on slingshot. When it kicks well and does not machine-gun, the gaps are right.

    Rubber ring maybe to tight.

    Turn the game off. Remove the plastic over the sling shot kicker and leaf blade switches. Pull on the rubber ring around the posts, so you have equal pressure on all sides, not tight on the kicker/leaf blade switch side. The leaf blade switches - front long one should be resting on the rubber ring, not pushing it or away from it. Shorter rear one should be close enough so the slightest ball hit triggers it, yet vibration doesn't. There are two leaf blade switches, one each side of the kicker. At least one needs a little adjusting. When bending forward or backward, get as close to the fiberboard spacers as you can.
