  • Strike cycle

    HELP!!!!!!

    I have a number of pinspotters which have no strike cycle. When a strike is bowled it scores it no problems but the machine goes onto second cycle and has to be respoted.

    I have taken out two wires in the bottom of the APC plug to the MP chassis and this gives me the correct cycle but then when a miss is bowled it scores it and sweeps off the deck and goes onto second cycle leaving no pins down.

    Any ideas?????????

    Check for a ground in the respot cell wiring.
    Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

      C,

      Take a chassis off a machine that is runing correctly and put it on a machine that is not.

      Then determine if it is in the chassis or machine wiring.

      If it is in the chassis ....determine if it is a board problem by takining a confirmed good board and putting it into a chassis that does not run correctly.

      Repost and let us know what is up!

        we have 2 or 3 machines that the tables need rewired and we took a respot wire and gound it to the table for a temp fix and use old boards in it so the strike cycle will work they have been like this for 2 yrs and are head mechinic has yet to rewire them

          Re: Strike cycle

          I have tried different MP chassis on all the lanes and it is def the machine wiring.

          Also I don't have table/cell wiring. These were all bypassed.

          Anymore ideas anyone?

            Re: Strike cycle

            What type of scoring do you have. Sounds like your APS plug is not wired correctly.

            Match it with a good lane.

              It has been checked with another machine.

              My scoring has just been changed from Accuscore to Advantage but the fault was there before this.

              It is really doing my head in now.

                8270C, your problem may be in your APS Chassis.

                That is if you have arrays in the kickbacks.

                What type of pin sensing do you have?

                  <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Check the Jumper wire in your wireway for the table wires. If someone went in there and messed around or they pulled it and it frayed the wires.

                  My table wires were removed before I got to my center so I had to double check all my jumper wires in the front end wireway. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif[/img]

                  So check that jumper wire. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

                    FYI

                    You don't need any jumper wires to bypass the Table wiring. Just put the two GPS wires on the same terminal and put any one of the respot cell wires on the ground terminal and your done. No jumpers to worry about.

                      I have a number of pinspotters which have no strike cycle. When a strike is bowled it scores it no problems but the machine goes onto second cycle and has to be respoted.
                      <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Is the table feeling for pins on the strike cycle? It should't be unless scoring has detected a standing pin.

                      I have taken out two wires in the bottom of the APC plug to the MP chassis and this gives me the correct cycle
                      <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">By correct cycle do you mean strike cycle? On a MP chassis interfaced with scoring 'strike cycle' the table does not feel for pins.

                      but then when a miss is bowled it scores it and sweeps off the deck and goes onto second cycle leaving no pins down.
                      <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">This is how a machine acts if the C-1 plug conversion is not done. When a center upgrades to MP chassis a few things need to be changed in the C-1 plug for the sweep reverse to work properly.
