Here are two pictures. One of the right side opto where you can clearly see the opto in the hole. When I had the theater off, this was hot glued in place.
The other picture is of the opto on the left side where you can see it mounted sideways on the left opto bracket. When I had the theater off, the bracket was held in by two screws and the opto was in it.
Seems all the optos are in the correct place but I will take theater off again tomorrow or the next day to be sure.
I already swapped phone scoop and theater enter on opto I/o board and when doing so a ball in the phone scoop triggers the theater enter switch open and then closed. No problem on the opto I/o board so it has to be the sensor either bad or out of alignment. But I am less and less convinced on the alignment being the problem.
