    This morning, the switch that detects that a ball fell into the arcade scoop stopped working, which means the game is basically unplayable. The coil is working fine since I can eject the ball using the service menu.

    I opened the machine and applied a bit of pressure to the metal arm to pushes on the switch contact. It doesn't seem to register unless I apply pressure directly onto the switch myself.

    Has anyone else had an issue with the scoop switch? Any recommendations on how to resolve this issue? Thanks!
