I'm currently putting together a backetcase Blackout. Both of the drops were off, so I ended up replacing the boards and horseshoes and reinstalling. The uppermost drops behave like I expect. However, the middle drops act weird. If I drop all three, it doesn't reset. However, if I hit the standup target in the upper left corner, it does. Almost as if it's wired into the drops. This isn't expected behavior, right? Any ideas on what got turned around here?
Here's a video of the behavior:

To make it weirder, now that target doesn't effect it at all.
EDIT: now it does again.

That is definitely not normal behavior I can confirm, drops should reset immediately. Switch matrix issue? I am going to be no help to you but I hope someone can help.

Hmmm...switch 20 (upper left target) and 28 (center bank series switch) are next to each other in row 4...faulty diode on a switch maybe, not necessarily one of those two. Need somebody who knows how to diagnose switch matrix problems to chime in...
