Hey guys, half the small back lights on my TMNT machine's back box isn't working, and the larger bulbs are neither working. Since I believe the easiest route would be to just make a jumper to the first bulb in the circuit, and possibly do the same to the larger back box bulbs since none of the lights flash I believe. I would replace all the back box bulbs with LEDs so they don't overdraw that single circuit, and all would be well. Is this an appropriate route to take? I can take the connector and put pressure on it and the upper small LEDS will work, so I guess its a bad pin, even though the connector appears perfect.

Anyone? I know this may not seem the best route, but it the only solution I have come up with. I restore and rewind antique electric fans, really early ornate, rare, and expensive ceiling fans pre-1900. This is the line of fix I would do, but pinball is a different game altogether to work with. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What makes this route superior to finding and fixing the problem?
You'll find a manual here: https://ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2509
Look at page 50-51 of the .pdf at the wiring diagram for the backbox.

Replacing pins is not something I am familiar with, never messed with soldering on a circuit board. I have the S out on the TURTLES part as well. Trying to figure out solutions I am comfortable with. Maybe I can replace a pin though without mucking up the board.
