  • Conquer BES- RDB's

    This one has stumped me. I have a center that has Conqueror BES. They are RDB's..on Brunswick A2 machines. They are wireless with the transmitter type. It's the earliest fly of the console table. (if that helps). Everything is set right on the parameters for it. Also, in the program setup of it.

    The problem I'm have is that on this pair of lanes they can't USE the Keypad on either lane to input names or anything when opened up or even after that.

    This is what I have done. Tried a NEW keypad, tried a "different receiver for wireless"(the little receiver attached to the ceiling), replaced the RDB, tried a different "transmitter (in the bowler's terminal console as I call it) from another pair" and coded it right with the dip switches to that pair.

    The only thing that I didn't do was run a CAT 5 cable from D1(RDB) to the receiver(on the ceiling). I don't have a CAT 5 cable to run to that. Could that be the problem, this system has been in place since 2004. That's my last hope.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated and thanks for your help.

    you can buy a standard cat 5 cable tester at home depot/radio shack etc... then you can test the cable with out removing it completely. Just plug the transmitter and then the remote into the ends and turn on. It sounds to me as you have changed all the hardware with the exception of the cable, so testing is a good idea. If you are sure the set-up/parameters are correct then you might be forced to change out all of your hardware with a known good pair, one at a time.

    There's no such thing as idiot proof, it just makes a better idiot!

      Have you replaced the batteries in the transmitter?
