Just got this game a few days ago and really love it ! We have been playing the heck outta this thing...fixed a loose wire issue on the launcher, but now the upper right flipper just stopped working...

Went through diagnostics, but that doesn't show me anything...The lower right flipper works fine...strange...

Any idea as to where to direct my search ? I looked at the most obvious, loose wire on coil, but nothing at this pint.

I Don't expect you to fix it for me, just which direction to look...the manual doesn't seem to help much either

Thanks !

The only other obvious place I'd look is the leaf switch on the flipper button itself. I'm only saying this because I know from experience with my JP that they can loosen and slide to the left/right so that there's no contact just for the top flipper, and once I dropped my playfield by accident and something hit the outer leaf swtich and screwed up just the top flipper.
Good luck with it. Frank is a favorite at my house.

Thank you so much for your help, thats what it was !! I wasn't looking near the contacts themselves, I was looking up at the solenoid. It was not quite making contact to the second set of leaves....a little tweak and away we go again !!

Thanks again !!!

Yay! So glad that I could actually help for once instead of asking for it. Enjoy it.
