A couple questions from a new owner!

My adjustments menu is missing some of the documented settings. It reports L-5 as the version. What was the final version of the F14 software? Planetary only has L-1 on the web site.

How do you get to the flashers on the back wall of the playfield? From the rear somehow or do the domes come off the front?

Thanks!

Check the two standup targets just above the outhole drain area. Hitting those while the Kill lamp is on will spot one kill. Associated with that are the 2 inlane switches, so check those too.

Finally, hit the left out lane switch to fire the rescue coil, then see if Rescue delights in the Outland when hitting the flippers. If so, those same two center targets also serve that function so it would make them even more suspicious.

Quoted from StylesBitchly:

I'm not sure if I am following you. "Two standup targets just above the outhole drain area", you mean the tom cat targets? This has nothing to do with the kill lights and getting a kill.
"Finally, hit the left out lane switch to fire the rescue coil, then see if Rescue delights in the Outland when hitting the flippers."
Not following you here either. If you hit the left out lane switch and fire rescue coil, rescue delights. It has nothing to do with flipper.

The two targets right above the radar scope - those will score kills if the inlane light is light, you roll over the inlane switch and then hit one of those targets. I was wondering if those targets and/or the inlane switches were set too close and flipper vibration was causing them to close.

The Rescue kickback is lit by those same targets once it's been used, so it was just another test of them. If you spend the kickback, but it relight while whacking the flipper, they may be set too tight.

I rather doubt that's your problem, but it's quick to rule out.

Is there any fishpaper between the two switches? If that's worn through you could get some connectivity where you don't want it.
