Quoted from Alan_L:

is it possible that they will fail in test mode and/or gameplay but pass an out of game diode test?

Yup.

If I even suspect a 5060 that may be misbehaving, I replace it with a 2N5064. More often than not, it solves the problem without going in diagnostic circles.

Is the switch stack supposed to have a stiff blade to help with the spring back action?

Quoted from Billc479:

According to GPE, 2N5060s are obsolete, as are 2N5064s. I guess it’s time to stock up from another source if you can find them.

2N5064's are better to use. They have a higher voltage tolerance (200v) compared to 2N5060 (30v).
