On to my next issue. Just noticed my top left pop is not popping.
I put the game in switch test and it registers a hit.
Start a game and hit the switch, it will make the game noise letting you know it was hit, but still no pop.
Fuse is good and other pops work great.
I then checked the transistor Q9 by grounding it manually and the pop coil fires every time with a manual grounding.
What should I try next?

Does it fire in coil test?

I will check.

Nope. In coil test it does not fire.
The other 2 do.

You didn't check the transistor. You checked transistor legs to and including coil wiring.

I'd replace the transistor. If that doesn't do it, something upstream from it isn't working.

Thanks Loyd.
Both of those were my guesses.
But I’m the past if I grounded a Q9 or the like and the coil fired it was usually not the transistor.
I’ll change it and see.

BTW, still loving our AFMr LE

No change with new Transistor

Probably something else on the board that drives the transistor then. Work backwards up the chain
