TSSP upper eject problem

Been having a problem with my simpsons. Sometime when the ball is ejected
back into the playfield from the upper eject hole the ball will hit the side
of the outer loop rail and bounce back into the eject hole over and over,
sometimes causing a operator alert and shutting itself down. The game is as
level as can be. It just started doing this for no reason one day and its
really starting to hurt the game play. Is there anything else i can try?
Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks,

John,

Mine hasn't done this, but I have seen it on I think Getaway and
Whirlwind. Try this. Raise the field and loosen the screws that hold
the whole assembly to the playfield. See if the assembly will rotate
the slightest bit (you probably want to try going counterclockwise)
then tighten the screws back down. There's no arm to bend, just a
straight plunger. Maybe try loosening the screws that mount the
solenoid itself and see if it will adjust downward any at all.

My 8BD would misfire the 8 ball eject and let the ball roll right back
into the saucer. I tried everything and finally had to rotate the whole
assembly and reinstall 3 of the screws in new spots. It works perfectly
now.

Thanks cody,

I put two washers between the screw closest to the hole and to the
playfield, it will hit make it hit the ball at a slightly different angle,
so far so good.......

Thanks again,
