  • 70s omega ss chassis no strike cycle

    I have a lane that has no X cycle. Its not in the chassis. We have table wires no scoring .

    When pinspotter is plugged in every table wire reads grounded with no pins in cells.

    With it unpluggedin table wires read normal
    Problem is in pinspotter not chassis??


    This just started out of the blue nothing crazy done to pinspotter or wiring

    Any one have any thoughts on what could cause the entire table cable wiring to go straight to ground only when pluged in

    Thanks in advance

    FIRST CHECK YOUR TABLE CABLE. Check to see if cable is rubbing or ripped. Any point of rubbing can cause a short to ground

        Get rid of the cell wires if you have expanders

            So this happened out of the blue, well you could check the table/table cable and plug also pull the cover off the front wireway which is where the table cable goes into the machine and this is where it connects to the TAC board. Check there for anything obvious like loose wires or metal debris laying on the board, etc, then from the TAC board the table wires then go to the C2A plug, so you could follow them to there as well. The table cable has 13 wires if I remember correctly, 10 for the cells, 2 for the GP switch, 1 for ground. But since it only reads these wires are grounding when the table cable is actually plugged into the table, then the problem should be on the table....damaged wires, messed up table plug or pins in the plug, etc. Table wires totally suck but if you have a little patience they are not so bad. If this started happening after a recent 'traumatic event' that the table has experienced such as a nasty table jam on the 7 side, I would be suspecting the table cable/plug area.
