  • Steltronics - Scoring Problem Wins 6.2.1 Brunswick Converted A2s

    Trying to help a friend with his Wins 6.2.1, Silver APIs, on Field Converted A2s, Never worked on Steltronics. Even lane will sporadically quit scoring. Odd lane works all the time. Checked Camera signal at Main CRT. Both lanes look acceptable. All lane sensors have Red LED continually "On" until you break the beam with the ball. Main cable from API to Camera is good - No damage. Powered down the unit and removed and reinstalled all cables on API Board. Connections in pinsetter electrical box all tight. When it does not score, you Do NOT get a "trigger" indication on the API Board - D17 (Green LED) does Not flash. D16 (Yellow) does flash as ball passes it. D21, D24 & D25 are always on. D18 Lites up when machine is on 2nd Ball. You DO NOT get a momentary flash on D19 (Yellow LED) when D17 fails to flash, so.... No trigger & No pin scan is taken. Rake mechanically drops as expected, then bowler has to press reset button to cycle machine. When you watch SCIBA from foul line, ODD lane scores and triggers with no problem. However, every 2nd or 3rd cycle, ALL lights on SCIBA are out. You may or may not get a trigger and a pin scan under this situation for Even Lane. Seems to be no consistency here. Odd lane works just fine regardless of light status on SCIBA as does the ODD lane LEDs on API Board. According to troubleshooting section of the manual, it states Replace SCIBA. Does this mean the circuit board in the camera assembly or the whole assembly ?? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Update: Owner was able to obtain a Camera board, (don't know if it was new or refurbished). Powered down unit and switched it out. Now even lane fails to trigger and score almost all the time. Odd lane scores just fine. We Did Not replace the camera itself which has its own board attached to it.
