Why are the JSON event lines missing?

Path Finder

the line format is :

{"tim":"2018-07-12 15:23:16","pre":"ayisha.udam","fir":"Ayisha","las":"UDAM","pe1":false}

Some lines present in the source file if I look at it with a text editor don't appear in a search or in a raw export.
in a json export :

{"preview":false,"result":{"_raw":"{\"tim\":\"2018-07-12 15:23:46\",\"pre\":\"ayisha.adam\",\"fir\":\"Ayisha\",\"las\":\"UDAM\" ...}

The sourcetype (I don't think it's the problem) is like that :

INDEXED_EXTRACTIONS:json
KV_MODE:json
NO_BINARY_CHECK:true
SHOULD_LINEMERGE:false
category:Structured
description:JavaScript Object Notation format. For more information, visit http://json.org/
disabled:false
pulldown_type:true

I've checked for differences in the source : line breaks, quote, I can't see any differences.

What else can I check?

thank's

I believe this should be updated in your sourcetype:
KV_MODE:none

also if you can't guarantee single line events:
SHOULD_LINEMERGE:true

Default Splunk Sourcetype for _json with
./splunk cmd btool props list

[_json]
