Anyone have a buzzing noise after the ramp closes and another sound like it is still trying to close? It will go on and off but happening mostly after the ramp closes. It is only a few days old and wasn't making this noise initially. Also my projector has dropped down and left an unlit area at the top of the screen...can this be adjusted up?

Any help or advice would be appreciated...

I am new here so please be gentle.

Ask in the club thread and you'll definitely get some help.

there are 2 switches that tell the ramp mechanism where it's located. one for fully up, the other for fully down. it sounds like the "ramp closed" switch (or "ramp up", depending how it's identified by the game) isn't actuating. those often need adjustment, which can be done below the playfield.

Sorry for my ignorance but what club thread? How do I find that?

Thank you I will take a look at it.

That is exactly what it was. The end of stroke was not being triggered. It was just ever so slightly off. A small adjustment and it has been working properly ... so far. Thank you so much for your help. Much appreciated.
