I am having issues w/ my POA stuttering when it is tilting left. I
cleaned the optos for the flippers and still am having a problem. Is
there a quick fix that I can try. Is there a way to tilt the poa
playfield (ala Shadow) to get under it to possibly reseat the
connectors etc...?

Thx

Damion

Swap left and right flipper button opto boards first and see if problem goes
with. LTG :)

I have the same issue about ten years ago. If I remember I took the
POA off the used a lettle canned air where it mounts. I think there
are optos in there. Anyway, used the oportunity do clean things and
it worked fine.

Yes, there's an opto board at the back end of the POA.
An arm attached to the POA passes between the optos when
it rocks left to right. Here's a photo of the board:

You may need to clean the optos and/or reflow the solder to the optos
or the resistors on the board.
