Gorgar has 2 set of drop targets. My issue is the one in the center of the playfield. Whenever the drop target on the left is hit, it resets the bank even if the middle and right targets are still up. I pulled the drop target boards off and cleaned them up, but still have the same problem. Wiring looks correct also from pictures that I have looked at. This is a new to me machine and the drop targets was not working at the time I got it.
What would be causing this problem, and how do I fit it?

Possible diode broken, or jumper wire.

I checked the diodes and they look good. Does anything look out of place?

Looks good. I would double check the horse shoe wipers ( switches) and make sure they are
contacting the board . You can also go into switch and see if there are any multiple switch hits with the drop targets one at a time.

Go into Switch Test, remove ball,

now make sure each drop gives the correct switch #

hard to tell from the pic, but are you sure the boards are on the right way? I remember having a similar issue on a client's machine where someone had put on all the boards rotated 180 degrees. Took me forever to realize

Yeah they look upside down.

Yikes, the contacts now being flipped horizontally vs. the board traces too, let alone the board being upside down. No wonder they're acting goofy.

Yup that was it! I installed it upside down. That's a palm to the forehead moment. LOL

Thank you all for the suggestions and help!
