Having an odd issue that popped up - wondering if anyone has ever seen this.

When shooting the balls into the hallway, once you get the clock to mid-night, it locks two balls just fine... if you put a third ball in there (instead of Rudy's Mouth to start multi-ball) it's supposed to kick out one ball (keeping the other two in there) and you keep playing and trying for multi-ball etc. For some reason it keeps kicking out ALL THREE balls if you shoot it in the hallway. It's like the game is getting confused. All switches work in test and in gameplay. I checked all other switches on the row and column with those switches in the hallway, and everything checks out perfectly. It then sets the clock back to 11:45 and you have to start all over again etc.

Any thoughts? I'm stumped!

I may be wrong here but check the disc that holds the balls when they are locked. It can move out of position causing things to get out of sequence.

I agree - this can get worn and if not adjusted right, all the balls can fall through.

Excellent. I will check that. Thanks for the info!
