  • Scoring Problem

    okay 1st off i have 82-70s with accuscore plus scoring..

    lanes 23/24 scoring issue on 23 as soon as the sweep comes down to 1st guard it scores not really a problem..but lane 24 it wont score until 15 seconds after it goes to second ball then after you throw the second ball it never scores...sometimes even tho you hit the pins on 1st ball it will score a miss...the micro switch is on and works for 2nd ball scoring so that rules that out.

    Change the com cable from the CWC to the camera, it can get damaged by balls underground. If that doesn't work then try the ribbon cable from the CWC to the monitor.

      Have you tried swapping out the CWC?

        Changing the CWC could be a good idea. Maybe the opto-couplers got fried. Where is the scoring picking up the 2nd ball signal from? Almost sounds like it is seeing the cycle lamps backwards, 1st ball instead of second ball. Is this an SS or MP machine?
        Check to make sure the start switch micro is wired to the correct terminal. Just check it against the machine next to it.

              I would check the sweep start switch actuating bolt - it probably has a groove worn in it from the years of use - remove and file flat

                were is the actuating bolt located?

                  Okay i got the 1st ball to score right when the fingers close..but still no scoring on 2nd ball.

                    Then it may have been the 2nd ball light causing the issue all along. Swap the pinspotter chassis and see if the issue follows. Accuscore + needs 2nd ball lamp voltage when the machine is in 2nd ball, else it will never score on 2nd ball. Your 2nd ball voltage input to the scoring is a 2 conductor on the masking unit 2nd ball lamp, or terminals on the mask board. You can meter it to see when it's on or off (12 volts). It needs to be on when the sweep drops after the 2nd ball is thrown. And stay on for 3-4 seconds minimum.

                        And it also needs to be a CONSTANT on, if it flickers then occasionally it won't score second ball.
