Hey guys, am having an issue with the opto in the heliport. When some modes have started, the opto within the heliport randomly won’t register that the ball is in there and subsequently the game freezes and a message appears on the dmd saying “ball not located. Call service person”. To access the ball I have to remove the glass therefore forfeiting the game and any potential high scores. Am hoping someone can help me with this?

Try cleaning the opto wth some alcohol and a q-tip and see if that helps.

Also check to make sure none of the wires have broken off from the opto PCBs.

It's possible one or both optos in the pair (transmitter & receiver) might be bad, and might need to be replaced. It's not uncommon.

anyone know where i can get a replacement pair of optos for the Ball Kick out side? I reflowed and soldered 2 pairs, 1 I successfully fixed but I accidentally broke an eye on one pair for the Ball Kick out side.
