All three of my sttng flippers are weak. They hold fine, it's pretty clear they aren't getting that initial high power shot.

Eos are all fine.

I've tried swapping the driver board and fliptronics board with known working boards, to no avail. All other solenoids work fine.

Isn't that odd? Any ideas?

Maybe it's the CPU?

Are the main flipper coils 17636 or 11629? The manual shows all 3 to be 11629 but the main coils seem better with the more powerful 17636 coils.

Not sure I'll check. I'll point out this game was playing fine for a year so probably isn't that.

No mechanical binding I assume. Power supply test points good? Test mode and in game the same? Doesn't make sense, you just turn on the transistor. Check voltages at the fliptronics board.

Hey Levi, did you ever solve this problem? I also have a STTNG that the flippers seem to be weak. They hold fine and the game plays well but the flippers just seem to be about 60% or so. Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

Trying cleaning the flipper button board U-shaped optos with glass cleaner and Qtips.
