I had to put some good force on it, but finally got my AFM start button pulled out to change the lamp to LED. Now I have two problems.
First off, it's not going back in, either with the original or the new stubby LED. I recall seeing a video somewhere stating these old buttons were a one way ticket out and cannot be replaced. That can't be true can it? It certainly does seem like I'd need hammer force to get it back in (don't worry, won't use a hammer, unless I get really really mad at it.)
The other thing I noticed is that the start button is not lighting. It's the only lamp that doesn't seem to be working in the game and the wiring looks good (everything plugged in) so I can't help but wonder if I just messed something up when putting the force on it to pull it back. Both the LED and the original bulb no longer light up.
Unless there's a way to put these buttons back into place with the existing hardware, I intend to replace both the green (AFM) and yellow (TZ) with a new twist type button which is what I assume are the only ones on the market now.
Anyone have any experience with these suckers?
