Help needed please, the prison doors on TWD don’t open approx 30% of the time.
Opto is nice and bright, triggers every time in test mode.
The doors aren’t stuck as when this happens the game doesn’t continue on to the next sequence (unless that’s triggered by the ‘doors open’ micro switch).
When it fails if I trigger it with my finger it works?
The magnet is slightly low in the playfield, could the ball be jumping slightly by the lip created?
Swapped optos round on the board, same issue.
Any help appreciated

.....ooo might have fixed it. Magnet bolt was loose, raised magnet so it’s flush with playfield, tightened. 100% operational so far.... better do more play testing

Just for future reference that has 100% resolved the issue. I’ve read that a cliffy protector can cause the same issue.
Worth remembering in case anyone else comes across the same issue.

No need for a Cliffy there anyway. Mine has been solid so far
Hope you are enjoying it.
Loving it, cant decide on Cleland code or not (tried both), just using the standard Stern 1.60 for now.

Yeah barn is my go to😁
Ive got a Cleland mix with the the fat bass tune when you go into Woodbury but I upgraded the speakers to flipper fidelity which has made a big difference.
I bet an external sub would sound so good though🤔
