Help!

I am having an issue with my Data East Tales from the Crypt.

The lower left flipper feels "soft". The lower right flipper is nice and crispy. Btw, this is also happening with the upper right flipper...

inspecting the lower left flipper the plunger/linkage had cracked, l was broken and "hanging up" the lower flipper.I have cleaned the EOS switches, even the cabinet switches. I even took a look at the little flipper board on the side of the cabinet on the left. I will look for cold solder joints when I get home.

I am happy to elaborate on any details and dig in the game if that would help with finding a solution?

Should I rebuild the flippers? Is it an issue on the boards?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have double checked the EOS's and scrubbed them clean.

Will replace both tonight. Good one Woody.

The EOS seems to be the issue. A new coil did not help the cause.

I replaced both.
