So I have an issue. During gameplay none of my pops, nor the slings are functional. When in test mode they all function fine. I sent the MPU out for full testing and it tests fine, the interconnect board also functions fine.

Could it be that one or both of the pictured component is bad, and does it indeed operate the solenoid in some shape or form? I feel like I remember reading that these go bad. There is one for each bank of pops. I have verified no cold joints on both.

These are all on column 7,

Then I would look for a broken wire or a cracked header pin on the interconnect board.

The interconnect is a fairly new great lakes unit, but I will remove and Check it anyway

Then check the connectors for a loose wire. J1 pin 12 and J19 pin 6 on interconnect board. J8 pin 8 on the cpu board
