Last couple of times I've played my STLE, when I hit start to start a new game, the drop target goes up and down 3 times, while the Vengeance drops forward like it's been hit, three times. After that, the ball feeds to the plunger, and the Vengeance resets to normal up position. The drop target stays down, and stays down for most of the time. The first time you get a ball in under the Vengeance, it immediately starts Vengeance multiball. Occasionally, and I say very occasionally, a ball will go in and the target will come up and stay. Unfortunately, sometimes this happens in the middle of Vengeance mode and the shooter at the back of the Vengeance will fire the ball back, only to hit the drop target and fire straight up and hit the Vengeance, or fire over the front of the drop target to land somewhere down on the playfield or crash into something. Once it jumped over into the pops. Not good.
In diags, whenever you hit the select button to bring the target up, it comes up but immediately goes straight back down. If I recall correctly, it's supposed to stay up until you give it a "Down" command.
Any ideas what to check? Seems like a sensor or switch I guess. Anybody else seen this?
