T2 has had an issue where anytime I flip, the backbox lights would dim. I moved the pin about a month ago and now the backbox lights and the room lights on the same circuit now dim anytime I hit the flippers. I’m assuming some kind of board component is failing but I’d appreciate some pointers on where to begin looking.

Are the lights in your room LED?

If so, that can happen if the circuit is loaded up.

LED's can cause RF interference too!

Yes LED in both pin and room.
15 amp circuit with only 1 pin on and builder grade led light.

When was your house built?

If the lights on game and house stay dim when flippers are held I would check eos switches for flippers. Fuses for flippers maybe overused as well if an eos switch is failing.
