Hoping someone can point me in the right direction or verify if I have a problem with this Target Alpha.
The game is operational from a scoring, start, reset, ball count, player, and etc. standpoint. The issue I think I have is the time (15-20 seconds) it takes for the bonus to count down once a ball drains. Once drain occurs then the bonus countdown will go say 3 counts, pause, 2 counts, pause, 5 counts, pause, and so on. Now my other Gottlieb pins only take 5 or so seconds to count down bonus, so I think I have an issue with this Target Alpha.
I have cleaned the bonus unit (mechanically and switch stack) and it runs smoothly. I have also cleaned and checked gaps on the score motor for the 10 and 5 drop target banks and they look normal. There is a score bonus relay on the main board that I have cleaned and appears to be functioning properly as well.
I think it should score faster and I know it would sound better if it did, so any advice if this is normal or where to look/check or re-check would be appreciated.
