I have a Bally 1980 SI. I was spinning lights the other day to get them to come back on and afterwards when I played the flippers had a weird glitch that gave points whenever you hit the buttons. No ball in play but giving points. I backtracked what I did but can't figure it out. Any idea?
Thanks.

How many points ? Check switches that award that many. One needs to be made less sensitive.

Yes. Likely the flippers are causing vibration that is causing a switch that is gapped too close to register.

Had this happen at a tournament recently. I told the TD and he just said “it affects everyone equally, keep playing”. I’m never going back there again.

No it doesn't. No way of knowing who hit the flipper button the same number of times.

Or if someone figured it out and hit the flipper button a lot.
