i've gotten all the problems taken care of up to this point now the right flipper gets weak and heats up after about 10mins use the upper right flipper sometimes goes weak as well and the left and right flipper stick sometimes most recently after 1min of game play it doesn't stay stuck. it seems to happen in video mode as well where i'll change 2 lanes instead of one. what could be the problem

Have you rebuilt the flippers?
Also adjust the eos switch.

Dont get a rebuild kit just yet. If you haven’t already, disassemble and clean. I have found that just cleaning the assemblies and sleeves will do the trick many times. If that doesn’t work, then it may be time to do a rebuild. Also clean the contacts on the flipper switches. Use a Qtip with alcohol on the contact pads. Lastly, check the solder job on the coils and make sure there are no broken or barely hanging on wires.

Just rebuild everything for good measure. The game will flip like new.

Don’t replace the coils. Replace everything else.

Unless the coils look burnt and swollen, just replace all of the other components. Pinball Life sells complete assemblies if your going to replace everything. Terry will build you all assemblies needed for your game.

Swap the flipper opto boards from left to right and tell me if anything changes. I just did this on mine and it was a huge difference on how the upper right flipper performed.
