Hi everybody,

I love pinball but when something goes wrong, then I have no idea what to do.

So. Everything works perfectly except of two main flippers(things that hit the ball). When i press buttons on the sides, then these flippers firstly do not react at all...then after some time, they start shaking...so i cannot play. But some times they start working perfectly. It's a bit weird.

Please can some one help me, because i have no idea how to fix it and where is the problem. And I really want to play it!

sounds like dirty flipper optics, remove and try cleaning them.

Do all flippers do this? Or are the 2 upper ones OK?

Upper ones are ok, i have problem only with two others.

Sounds like the fliptronics board to me, but first have you checked end of stroke switches, then that all connectors are seated correctly to all boards especially the fliptronics board.

Visually check the lower flipper coils and wiring to them.

Then may meter the power at the flipper coil to see if you are getting the correct power.

Good luck
