Hey everyone,

Today I noticed while playing my Tron Legacy that the lower left flipper all of a sudden was weak right from start-up. I looked thru the forum for some tips and checked for the easy things such as any binding, dragging and general mechanical issues. Found nothing.

I was about to disassemble the flipper when I thought for a moment to go into the service menu and do a coil test. If I activate the left flipper with the service test/menu, it's very strong and is acting exactly as it should. I tested it several times with a ball and it slams it good. However once I come out of the service menu and start playing and using the actual flipper button to activate, right back to weak flipper...

The EOS is making good contact and is opening as it should, as far as I can tell?

Oh, I should also point out that the upper left flipper is strong as well in either case, test menu or in play.
