So, I installed translucent drop targets to replace the MET grave drop targets. I’m going to use an LED strip to light them up and make them glow. However, the drop targets are not working now? I wrapped electrical tape around the tab where the opto is, so the opto would work correctly. I tried the same technique with my deadpool translucent drop targets I installed and it worked great. However, the MET translucent drop targets don’t pop up at the start of a game or if you knock them down. Any idea what the issue could be? I was very careful with putting the drop target mech back together exactly how it’s supposed to and double checked that all the connectors are plugged in. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Will it reset in the test function? If not, may just be an issue with the coil. The game should reset the bank at the start of a game or a ball if it recognizes even 1 target being down so unless all 3 or your switches are messed up I'd start looking at the coil. Also, just double check that they are registering in switch test mode as well.

I saw mention in another thread that the optos for the drops in this case need a reflective surface to detect, so you need bright white instead of the black tape.

Yep! Black absorbs the wavelengths of the red light and turns it into heat. White reflects it.
