  • Machine Cycle

    I have a solid state chassis with Omega-Tek boards (MK-70 & expander). When this chassis is on a machine it cycles great when a ball is thrown and activates the cushion MS. However it will NOT cycle if you press the cycle button in the rear control box.

    Based on what you've done so far, it's probably the board. Have you called Omega-Tek? I believe there is a lifetime warranty on these cards - you only pay shipping.

      does the RPO button up-front work?..non-scoring button on the scoring panel?...but it probably cycles when you hit the tenth-frame switch....the one on the sure-pik [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

      if this sounds like your problem the probs in the mask/APS plug on the 10pin side of the chassis.

        The problem sound like either the
        EMC or EXP board in the scoring

        Double check your installation of
        the scoring to see how they installed

        We have accuscore II in our center.
        The cycle button (back panel)is part
        of the RPO circuit in the curtain-wall chassis. Replacement of the EMC board
        cured the problem in our center.

          Which Accuscore do you have? If Plus, the only thing I can think of is the wiring between the machine cable from the CWC to the back end control box, especially if RPO works OK from the bowlers terminal (<RERACK> <ENTER>).

            Check out your pins and sockets in c1 and c2. One is likely to be pushed in in the c2 (low voltage)

              Geminix, so you have it narrowed down to the chassis huh.
              I would check continuity between c2a-14 &amp; c2a-32, and between c2a-27 &amp; c2a-31 to start. Actually, check for a pushed in c2a socket first as suggested by the King.
              Odds are its one of these two things.

                  Coors, you got it. Thanks buddy. It was a severely bent pin on the PM plug. I repaired it and I am now getting RPO cycle. It's weird that this function goes thru the PM plug but, hey, now I know for future reference. Thanks again!
