Sometimes on my Jurassic Park, the left flipper will become a little weak after a fastball from the raptor. Like it will flip as if the ball weighs 15 lbs.

The flipper seems to go back to full strength, but it was something I noticed and wanted to address it before it possibly became worse. Is there something I can do to fix this?

I had similar symptoms with my F-14 and it turned out to be the end of stroke switch. I made the switch gap smaller and it fixed the issue. I'm not familiar with DE games so I don't know if JP even uses EOS switches.

Check the flipper cabinet button switch contacts, good chance they may adjusting and/or a clean.

Doesn't the left flipper have some type of clutch or release mechanism to avoid it getting damaged by the Raptor kick? I've never taken a close look at mine but it does the same thing if it's up when the Raptor fires.

Thanks for this feedback. I'll take a closer look tomorrow
