Hi guys im pretty new to this forum and to restoring my pinball machine. I was lucky enough on my first post, i found my solution minutes later so maybe it’ll happen again. =)
Ive read lots of posts and still am having some issues.

I have fixed my opto switch recently, ive been playing and noticed a few things wrong.
My ring magnet is not working.
My ring spinner works 1 in 100.
When i hit balrog when its closing it does not count as a ring hit.
Balrog’s flasher does not work but he still functions with a clean hit.
I have tested these features in the diagnostics menu with STERN tech support help.

How do i fix the magnet, what is the proper functionality of the magnet? Does is it activate when the spinner or opto switch is triggered?

Why does the ring spinner switch work at all? I cant even activate it with my hand. Is it as simple as bending the arm?

Balrog controls a lot of the functionality of the machine as does the opto switch should i bother digging deeper into the minor balrog malfunctions?

I appreciate any help you can give me and thank you in advance! =)

Magnet fuse blown ?

Spinner switch even work ? If it does, then adjusting so the spinner closes - open - closes - opens -closes - opens - type stuff.

Sounds like your flasher bulb inside the Balrog is burnt out.
