Have a WCS94 with a glitch or two.
After taking the game home, noticed a GI problem. GI is broken into 3 segments, Top segment has failed. Performed lamp test, replaced a couple bulbs, chased wires under play field all the way to back box looking for a wire issue. Nothing was found till I got I got to the board.
Finally made it to J120 and found 2 burnt pins (10/11). As you can see below, the female connector is actually a 12 pin and not an 11 pin such as the board.
Second issue I found is the top have of the translite lighting is in op.

With what I have above, I'm leaning towards this must be a board issue. Problem is, I don't really know where to start at this point now. Should replace the pins or should I just replace the entire board? I'm concerned about the traces and salvageability.

Lastly I believe they are the Bridge rectifiers and power pack in the photos below. Clearly someone at some point did some work and they look a little busted. Though?
Any suggestions or help is welcomed.

Thanks for the all the guidance so far. I have decided to send the board out to a fellow pinsider.

However when rebuilding the wired connections, I know I need a set of crimpers, Trifuricon connectors and crimp contacts. I just don't know who I should get them from and the exact type to prevent future damage. Also I see there is a "key" do I need one of those also? If you think there are any other tools or parts I should order for this job, I could certainly use the advice. Thanks
