FYI the buzzing form the coin door is likely the coin lockout mechanism. That’s fairly common. You can either put up with it or take it apart and clean it and replace the springs which may help some or disconnect the coil since it is home use if you don’t care about using coins in it.

dasvis above mentions cleaning and adjusting switches. That would be the first thing I would try with the slingshots. The switch contacts need to be cleaned with small file make for that purpose and adjusted so there is a small gap when the rubber ring is around the posts. Takes a bit of trial and error and is much easier to do with the right tool but with sling switches I find a small fine bladed screwdriver can work if gently applied from the top. Not optimal but if you don’t have the tool it will do.
