The drop target in front of the vengeance ship drops without ball contact, when the ball is in the bumpers or during gameplay. It comes up and often drops again immediately due to its own vibration until it finally stays down for the first vengeance MB. So it seems to be too sensitive. Is there a screw at the Target to fix this or any other idea?

I know the behaviour is favourable for the gameplay, but I am not cheating.

Thank you for any Feedback.

Geht sicher auf deutsch, but perhaps other pinsiders are interested as well.

Thanks for your feedback. My issue was that the black ledge that holds the stand up target (when up) was broken. Replaced it by a self constructed ledge (get a replacement later) and now it works 95%. Only sometimes some problems, when the pin has to drop the target by himself, because the mechanism with the small coil fails in the first attempt.

The whole construction of the unit looks a bit weak. Especially the plastic material of the broken ledge should have been made with hard plastic or metal instead of the weak plastic actually used.

That could be good for my game as well. Which spring do you mean, the big one at the right side of the target plastic? How to losen it best?
