Found my Rolling Stones. Excited. HUO in really nice shape. I am getting one error "Check Left Flipper EOS". The left flipper seems fine and no different than the right one. What should I check on that? Thanks a lot, guys.

They are going new for a reasonable price from various dealers who would probably love to sell them.You could probably work a deal.

Try Trent at tiltamusements.com. Pinball Pete's, just 16 miles away from you or I had one. Alas, Ballykid, who was there last night said he did not see it so maybe it has been moved to East Lansing.

Go into the switch test and find out what the difference is between how the right and left flippers are working. They may seem the same, but the error indicates they are not.

Power off, remove balls.

Lift playfield. Look at both the right and left flipper mech. Even move them. See the pawl ( part that secures plunger and plastic link to the flipper shaft ) when it moves/turns it opens a set of leaf blade points ( switch ).

The left side isn't working the same as the right. The left either isn't closed ( making contact ) or opening when the flipper goes up.

Now you are fortunate you have the right one to compare to. See if a wire broke off, if one of the leaf blades broke off, or simple adjusting is needed.

LTG- Thanks a million. Broken wire- just did first ever solder job on my own. It's weird though. The flipper wasn't acting different or strangely at all. Thanks again!

Watch the first half of this video and it will tell you what the EOS switch is, why your problem flipper did not appear to act differently than the other, and why it's important to fix it.
