My Jungle Queen developed an issue today where the right bank of drop targets stop registering when hit. It's not just one or two drop targets, but the whole bank that seems to have cut out. It still resets properly. If you have any ideas on where to start diagnosing that would be great. Thanks!

I would also like to note that all of the switches are gapped and seem to be working normally.

There should be a Score Control relay (or similar name) underneath the playfield near the bank. Do you have a schematic?

Could rule out one possible issue by inspecting the drop target bank for any broken-off wires. A broken off common ground wire on the scoring switches could cause that issue.

Also check the Jones plugs within the cabinet and head for broken off wires.

I'll take a peak an see if there is any broken wires in those areas!

Could it be "cat related"? It's laying on the right bank....

I agree on the broken wire, or cold solder connection.
Is it for the scoring?
Could be the same lead as on the left bank, also look there for a broken wire, most of the time they connected the second wire on one side reducing the amount of wire in the machine.

If the right drop targets don't score 500 + add bonus but the left drop targets do, most likely the Slate&White or Green&White wire has come loose from the right drop target bank.

Sorry for the late response, but this repaired my issue. Thanks!
