I was trying to pull out what I thought was a staple poking a little onto the playfield and so I pulled a couple staples that had a couple of wires soldered in that area. As far as I can tell, I did not damage the soldered area. Of course, that ended up not being the culprit (DOH! ) and was instead a nearby screw which I simply loosed up a bit.
Prior to me doing this, the pin was working fine. Now the left flipper sticks in the "UP" position whenever I start the game or go into the diagnostics menu. It stays in its normal position when I first turn on the game. I checked fuse 101 which is supposedly for the left flipper but that was fine.
As I recall from reading other stuff in the past I'm wondering if I fried a transistor or screwed up the grounding. As my knowledge of these things is relatively slight, I've taken a few photos of the area I pulled the stale free.
To put things in perspective, in the photos, the area was in between the pops on the upper part of the playfield.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
