Big noob here and still learning so please be gental

I have a temperamental issue that results in all switches on a column closing and the game ending since Slam Tilt is one of them.

So when i got the machine and turned it on, it had 2 x switch errors. It wasn't a switch error with the switch being closed, it was that the switches had not been hit in 80 games (i think thats when it reports it)

I had a look at the switch under the PF and the wires had been taken off and where just hanging there.

I soldered them back on, and everything worked perfectly

20 or so games later the machine slam tilts when i hit the 'light kickback'

I go into the switch test and the entire column closes when i press that switch.
I turn the machine off and leave it for a day. Turn it on the next day and its fine.
I then play it for 1 week (maybe just 1 game a day) and no issues. Then in the middle of the game Vs Germany slam tilt....
3 weeks later i turn it back on and it has the issue right away in the switch test. I start a game and the issue goes away.

I am guessing the error is on that switch? Here are some pictures of the wiring
Have a stuffed something up?

Currently when it works every single switch on that column works individually without shorting and activating all switches. Is something being grounded?

I understand it might be hard to diagnose since its temperamental

Diodes were still on, was just the wires that were off.
Was your issue temperamental or always happening?

I forgot to mention that I disconnected all the connectors off the boards in the backbox and plugged them in and it didnt make a difference when I had the issue
