  • problems during UV light

    hii guys


    I have a brunswick A2 conversed pinsetter and an acuuscore XL scoring system.
    I have a problem, when I turn the lights off and turn the UV lights on, the cameras go mad, thay just cant figure out how many pins were left.
    did any of you stumble this problem also ? do you know how to fix it ?
    thanks
    Aviran.

    I assume you are using the original cameras (p/n 244-001-000) cameras and the interface box installed under the frame? If so, you will probably have to upgrade the camera's program (EPROM) mounted inside on the pc board. There is a 'black light' chip that should cure this.
    I've had enough of hope & chains.

      can you tell me the serial number for this EPROM ? or maybe aversion number ? where can i get it ?

        While you are waiting on your eproms, try turning on the black lights, then unplug, and replug in the underlane camera power cable. If it's XL, this will power off the BT as well and may give you an error, so do it quickly. With Plus, loss of the camera power gave no error, with XL, it may freeze the system. But I'd certainly give it a try.

                Are you sure this isn't plus? 1.02 sounds like a plus camera. Else, someone has added the camera interface and changed to a '0' delay eprom without the black light fix?

                    Here's a shot in the dark. Are you using pins designed for black light? They have a UV coating on the pins that allow the camera to read the pins easier (under black light the pins practically glow white in the camera's eye.) Without the UV coating the pins can disappear in the background making them virtually invisible to the camera.
                    If it can't be fixed with a hammer, try a bowling pin! They're heavier and more surface area for whacking!

                        It's XL. Dark grey MI box on the curtain wall. CPU between the monitors in the overhead housing.

                          Can you take a picture of the camera and post it?

                          Accu+ CWC (typical):


                          Accucam (used with Accu+ & XL):


                          XL 'interface' installed under Accucam (for XL) (note the chassis under the camera in this pic. is an XL CPU):


                          Hope that helps. The EPROM in the camera that needs to be changed is U3 on the cameras with small lenses and the power/data coming from the rear of the camera, or U29 on the older cameras with the big lens and the power coming in the front, data out the back. The p/n you gave for the camera indicates it's the camera with a small lens - so it should be U3.

                          I'm sending you a PM about the chips now.
