Hi. Most of the time when the ball is ejected from the bazaar, it goes straight down the middle. I checked the level and slope and it is just about right on. Any ideas how to adjust this ?

Loosen the screws that hold the scoop. Twist it in the direction you want and tighten the screws down again.

I tried loosening the screws and pointing the scoop in a different direction, but it doesn’t really help. I’m thinking about putting a bump in the scoop with a hammer, maybe hopefully redirect the ball enough.

If there are side tabs that aren't welded, try bending them a hair. Is there a broken weld? I wouldn't damage the scoop. There's an adjustment that will fix this.

As I recall, there are 2 parts to the lower scoop-- the scoop itself and the metal frame for the coil and eject rod. How the ball rests in this mechanism can determine if it is struck straight on or a slight angle hit when the coil fires. Try adjusting this housing in addition to the scoop housing.

this is exactly how I adjusted mine. Now, mine can be dead-bounced down RH flipper over to LH and trapped, or directly trapped by the RH flipper every time.
