I have a strange issue with my long range opto. When I start the machine the switch does not work, but after a couple of minutes it warms up and then works perfectly. I considered grabbing the new board but want to be sure before I spend the money as the pins still works perfectly. What parts or component could start working after they "warm up"?

Mine was intermittent so I replaced the electrolytic capacitors on the opto board and it has worked perfectly ever since.

Is that just everything with a C on the board or can you be more specific?

Replace c7 and c10 on 24 opto board. that usually fixes this issue. I've repaired 3-4 of these for people and it fixed the issue.
