I am having an issue with optos on my TZ, and I am having trouble narrowing down the problem.
The issue I am having is with two opto switches (74 - Gumball Popper) and ( 84 - Center Lock). Both are next to each other on the same row (J208-4 White/Yellow).
I re-pinned the J5 connector that goes to the GLM 10 Opto Board with a fresh molex connector, but it still didn't solve the issue. That White/Yellow wire appears to be fine where it connects to both the OSB-10B and J208 on the CPU board.
I just shopped the machine, so there were a lot of worn leaf switches with new diodes I replaced while the playfield was out of the machine. It is totally possible that I screwed something up while changing out all of those diodes, but I can't see any incorrect wiring or diodes going the wrong way.
What makes me think it is a matrix issue is because when I interrupt the opto switch (73 - Right Ramp) which is on the same column as opto switch (74 - Gumball Popper), The gumball popper opto will start working again.
Is there a suspect diode or switch I should test or replace? I included the switch matrix diagram if that helps.
