Amazingly, a Medusa popped up right in my backyard last week. One of my wish list machines, I snapped it up. It's in generally good shape with a few minor issues.
I could use some advice on the biggest of these issues, the 7-bank targets. When you start a game, they all reset up but then the single target drops and it starts on two targets. 100 points gets scored. The 3 and 4 group work OK. The 5 group misses the rightmost target. I haven't yet tested the 6 or 7 groups. So OK, let's go into solenoid test. All 7 drops work fine in solenoid test so I moved on to switch test.
Problem 1, switch test shows 41 in the display, Movable Flipper EOS. Looking at the Zipper Flipper mech, it looks like there is an EOS on both the left and right flippers but only one switch number is given. Does that mean they both share #41? I take it these should not be closed in switch test?
So even though 41 was blinking away I tried another switch and it briefly showed that one before returning to 41. So I tried the 7 drop targets - none appeared at all, just the 41 kept blinking. Should I have gotten switch closures with the targets down, or is it a quick, momentary sort of thing as they fall?
Let's start with that. There's also some issues with speech getting cut off and a bit of asymmetry in the zipper flippers when they pull in but we'll get to that later
