In World Cup 84, when a ball enters the upper left hand outlane the kickback should actuate the kickback mechanism (called header save in the manual). Mine has stopped responding. The kickback mechanism is functional and works when kickback is lit, so not a solenoid issue. The switch in the upper outlane is operating correctly when checked with switch diagnostics. Any ideas what's going on? Thanks!

Interesting as mine only works when kickback is lit, didn’t realise it was supposed to do it regardless. Switch is fine too. Makes sense though for the upper switch to be there, I did wonder. I will be looking into this now. Don’t know why yours would suddenly stop working though, makes no sense if switch is good.

Thanks Folks - adding the Scared Stiff forum as suggested...

Problem solved - turns out the header save can be turned on/off in feature adjustments menu. I recently replaced the batteries and lost the setup. when I reconfigured the adjustments, I must have missed this one...

So factory setting is off then so mine must be ok then. Shame there isn't one for the dreaded right outline
