    Game worked fine for dozens of games. Now when you turn the game on the gate opens. It will close when you turn the game off. The 2 switches that normally open the gate are not stuck closed. Thinking maybe shorted transistor? Any thoughts?

    If you've gone through the switch Test already to confirm no switch problems then yes, I would agree and say it's likely a bad transistor.

    For now I just swapped boards and now good to go. I will replace the transistor next and see what happens. Thanks for the reply ☺
