Since as long as I can remember, I am having an issue with my Goldeneye launching the ball. When the ball is resting on the dhooter plunger, and I fire the gun, all is OK. But during normal play, if the ball passes back into the shooter lane and is rolling down toward the shooter plunger, as soon as it touches the wire switch in front of the shooter plunger, the coil fires.... This also happens sometimes during multi-ball

The result of the shooter coil firing too early is that the ball is not close enough to the plunger to get a solid shot- as a result it only goes about halfway up the shooter lane. And during multiball, the balls can even get stacked up in the shooter lane.

Anyone seen this before, or have advice on fixing?

Adjust the switch to be less sensitive so the ball is sitting closer to the plunger when the ball is on its way back. So just bend the wire down a little.
