On my stern stars, I have two standup targets that register intermittently. Typically a dead on hit by a fast moving ball does not register. However, slow moving switch hits register just fine. I've thoroughly cleaned and adjusted the switches, but I'm out of ideas. I've read that some games have a capacitor across the switches to help with this problem, but stars only has a diode.

You need caps on all standups

Just put a cap on one of them--Problem solved! Going to order caps for the remaining. Thanks!
