Just picked up my BF last Friday. What will I gain by upgrading the ROM from the original to the latest version? Is there a site that shows what different ROMs do for various games? If I want to upgrade, who can I get the current version from? I've used John Wart's thatpinballplace.com in the past, but he appears to be having "issues". Or I could spend about $150 for a ROM burner & eraser. What kind of learning curve is there with this idea?

I have a problem with the third flipper. I hadn't turned on the machine for a month or two. Previously it was working 100%. Now when the ball kicks into the shooter lane, the 3rd flipper slowly moves until it's fully extended and stays there until the ball drains, at which time it instantly drops back to where it belongs. Next ball, it start over again, rinse repeat. Any ideas?

Quoted from Colsond3:

If not an obvious switch or coil issue (wire or lug arching), sounds like the corresponding transistor is locked on. Constant juice...could be cracked solder joint on the board.
If you’re not going to play any game for a prolonged period of time, it’s always a good idea to just turn them on and let the boards heat up once a week or two.

Might you know what transistor I should look for?

Just got around to playing a game for the first time since I posted about the problem, the flipper is working as it should and I did nothing to the machine. The only thing I did was leave the machine on since you advised it. I hadn't got around to checking any of your suggestions, because BF is the game I've had the least issues with, thus I have it buried the deepest into the tetris like setup I have to move to be able to work on it.
