  • 3QT or Q Vision Board?

    So I have two lanes that are driving me crazy. 35 and 36 give me error code 200, which is communication. So my FM swapped the qvision board with another board from 39 and 40. He says it did not work so he requisitioned a new q vision. I kinda went behind his back and tried connecting 35 and 36 3qt to the qvision board on 33 and 34. Still came up with error code 200. So then I tried connecting 33 and 34 3qt to lane 35 36 qvision, and amazing , no error code. Mind you he said that he swapped out the 3qt on 35 and 36. I asked was it checked, he said since it was a refurb there was no reason to check it. So I just need to know if I am right in thinking that the problem is the 3qt or is he right saying it is the q vision? Also I know that a new q vision board is $1400, so I was wondering how much is a 3qt? BTW I have never had a q vision go bad, but 3qt thats another story.

    First, just because it was reconditioned does not automatically mean it is good. Whenever you receive a replacement scoring component it is always a good idea to immediately put it to use so you know for certain it is in fact good. Its rare but sometimes reconditioned stuff doesn't work.

    Second, if a suspected component is moved to another pair and the same problem follows, most likely the problem is with that component. If the problem remains on the same lane pair then its probably something else.

      Not sure you don't have an lcom wire issue. Check the voltages from the 3QT first, then chech them at the camera.

        Ted is right on here, check lcom wire for damage from 3qt to camera board. Mine was installed up against accelerator mount and started wearing through jacket and into wire. I moved wires and installed a corregated wire protector in that area.

          Turns out I was right. It was the 3qt not the qvision board. I got to prove that my boss is an idiot, but he had already ordered the part and had it rushed delivery to the tune of $1600. Thankfully all of our 3qt units are still under warranty. Added bonus: I got promoted afterwards.

              I'd check the LCOM cables to make sure it didn't ruin the 3QT. Unplug all the LCOM components and ohm each wire to wire for shorts, then each wire to ground (pinspotter frame) to make sure you don't have issues before you plug in the new one.
