Hey, I just started working on my first Pin, a Gottlieb Stargate. The machine has not been in use for many years until it was recently moved to a new home.
After turning the game on it seemed like the left VUK would be activated every now and then while in attract-mode. While doing a quick test play I noticed that balls shot in the mentioned VUK wouldn't be ejected until the game started searching for them. When shot from the left Horus-target, a transporter award was never given and the ball would be stuck. It also got stuck there after starting a mode from the pyramid. Since the VUK itself is working as soon as the ball is being searched by the game I can imagine there may be a problem with the optical switch.
Another problem occurred on the right ramp which also never seemed to award anything.
Does anyone have any tips on how to fix these issues?

Quoted from LTG:

Should be a switch test in there. Optos - clean, then check for bad solder joints. Switch on ramp, see if it works in test, then if it needs adjusting or broken wires at switch or at other switches with the same color wires.
LTG : )

Thanks a lot for the quick answer - I will try my best tomorrow
