Quoted from PBMAN:
Guys. I have one I cannot figure out. Deadhead Crypt right Gargoyle. No matter how light/hard it is hit will not register. However with ball in hand I hit target and it works fine. Switch Test/Light Test shows it is fine. Also with game going I hit it with finger and it works. Looked under playfield and wires seem to be connected.
Only thing I can think is its some sort of grounding issue hence I am the ground that makes it work.
Any ideas. Thanks.

I sorta have the same issue but with the gargoyle to the left of the house, it will register 100% of the time with fingers or if i hold the ball and hit it, but in game play it registers about 60% or so. I tried changing the leaf switch gap in various ways but can't seem to improve it and gave up. I added it to my support email to Stern, so I'll see what they suggest. They did reply to my web service request really quick, so far so good.
I did mention that my Crypt door stays slightly open and even linked them a video of it and this was their reply:
"CRYPT DOOR - Per Engineering, This is normal operation for the Crypt door to have a slight opening when it should be in the “CLOSE” position. "
So a slight opening is normal. I didn't really care about that but figured I'd ask them since it came up here.
