Gotliem em drop target not scoring bonus points

Postby pinballfever64 » Sun Jan 29, 2017 9:36 am

I just picked up a gotlieb em game and the drop targets are not all scoring the bonus points. they score the 300 points when hit and the light goes on indicating the drop but when the ball drops down some targets will score 1000 points but some dont .I have a feeling its just contacts so i cleaned and adjusted the drop target assembly cause some lights were not coming on at all but that all works now and contacts are clean. My guess is contacts at the score motor wich i plan to tackle this week but I was just wondering if i should look anywhere else ? i did check the playfield harness pug and all contacts are clean at the connector. I would apreciate any advice, thanks

its solar city . 4 targets on the upper bank don't score any bonus points and there are 2 on the lower bank also that wont score bonus when ball drops.

Thanks for the info ! The stepper didn't even look dirty at all but a quick clean on the contact wheel made a big difference. The game works like a charm ! Now i can move on to fixing my other pins. Always something to do and enjoying every minute of it !! Thanks again
