I just got a WCS 94 and the right flipper only works in test mode. Every now and then it may work in game play but very weak and sometimes just jumps when pushed. What could cause this? Thanks,T

Sounds like your end of stroke switch or flipper board/switch in cab (if this has that kind)

Maybe loose wire to switch

How would I test the end of stroke switch? Test report say Check switch F6 U.R. Flipper BUT.

I just sold mine or I'd look.

In cabinet by the actual flipper button......is there a leaf switch or opto switch?

My guess is you should reflow solder on opto.

It is an opto switch. It works great during test mode so I was not thinking it would be a opto issue.

Have you tried cleaning the optos? Are the wires in the connector all securely attached at the opto board and the Fliptronic board?

If the opto were bad or dirty, wouldn't that do the same thing during test mode?

I switched the right board to the left side and the same thing happens on the left side. So, yes I think it is a bad or dirty board. Thanks for the help!!!

I have always found opto's are strange. Sometimes work in test and not in game mode.

Definitely check connectors on board and flaky wire connections

Reflow optos

Can you reflow solder on opto?
That may take care of it.
And obviously Clea the opto

It was a dirty opto. Took off black cover and cleaned. Works great now. That is strange that it would work during test mode and not during game play. Thanks again, Tom

Reflow back of pins to connector on board in cabinet too

If in coil test it bypasses switch
