Although I've read past posts, I still haven't found a solution to a problem that arose a few weeks ago regarding flipper actuation on my GOT LE. --- The flippers will quit (sometimes one side, sometimes both sides {both upper and lower playfields}) while a multiball is in play. Usually and almost every time this happens is during multiball but sometimes (rarely) it will do it with just one ball in play. I've checked the flasher bulbs (555 LEDs) in the forward spotlights and replaced. I've flasher tested all the others with no problems seen. I've removed and reinstalled the 2 leads to the trough opto board as well.

And then, just last night, (not sure this is related, the speaker lights quit.

This game has an auxiliary power supply and the fuses look good. Can anything else be checked?

Lift the playfield and check the connectors on the node board underneath. When my GOT pro flippers started behaving as you describe I found one of the connectors had worked it’s way nearly off of the prongs. Reseated it, never had that problem again.
