Hi Guys.

My Walking Dead has started to have a sticky right flipper. Flipper sticks up after a few plays. It isn’t locked solid. If I turn the power off the flipper drops so it certainly appears to be electrical.
Where is a good place to start looking ? Leaky transistor ? Failing diode ?

End of stroke switch. The "hold" on modern Sterns is purely in software. Sounds like your EOS switch needs adjusting.

Sorted it mate. Somebody had done some extremely shoddy ‘repair’ work on the power board. I cleaned it all up and everything is good. Thanks for your reply though.
