the score reel lights on player 2 seem to go on and off while game is in play but player 1 is ok

they're loose on the plate that holds them and are losing ground. Pretty common for those Gottlieb plates.

what's would be the best fix for this

If they are loose, you can try a drop of oil on each insulator pad.(the small fiber washer) It can sometimes swell the fiber, better fix is to clean a spot (I use a small contact file) and solder the two parts together (the long plate and bulb holder). There are other reasons that could be happening. Do all the lights flicker at once? If so, it's very likely related to a switch in the player unit that turns on those lights when player two is active. Check your schematic for which one and make sure it is clean and adjusted correctly.
