Hi All!

I have a Total Nuclear Annihilation machine where the left flipper won't work. The flipper button registers in switch tests, and the flipper will activate with coil tests, but it just won't work during play and the button doesn't work to control the menus.

I've also noticed that the flipper hold test doesn't work for any of the flippers, but I don't know if that's related or if it even matters.

Any ideas what this could be? The machine has been working great up until now, so I'm a bit at a loss here.

I should also note that the upper flipper responds, just not the lower.

Anything helps, thanks!

I fixed it!!!

Evidently I had bent one of the contacts for the button switch when I was uninstalling a mod. The left flipper button has 2 different contacts on it, but only one was bent, which explains why the top flipper worked and the bottom did not. I'm dumb, thanks for listening!
