  • Instructomat won't shut off

    I have 82-70 machines with M.P. chassis and accu-score automatic scoring. The other day one of the lanes went into sweep/table interlok. After clearing the interlok and pushing Zero on the chassis I cannot get cycle start. Machine appears to be in Instructomat. Have changed chassis, every switch in the back end control box and the C.B., all three sweep and table cam switches and disconnected the control wiring at the front desk toggle switch and at the a-mc box. Still no luck. Have not gone to the a-mc plug yet or internal wiring on the back side of the plug. Any help appreciated!

    Check for a possible bad Lane A board in the LIU.

        Maybe a short to earth between your mask plug and your mask.

          I assume you changed the MP board? Could be the board was failing & after you got the i-lock cleared, the board is simply not gonna work. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/usflag.jpg[/img]

            <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Hi Red ,
            This "MAY" sound stupid but have you checked the Interlock Micro Switch ?

            Seems that the Interlock was the starting point of the fault .

            Also , try totally unplugging the Accuscore from the pair ,Not sure if you have Accuscore or Accuscore + , We have some odd Accuscore+ faults that at times leave the Odd lane stuck on Instructomat &amp; wierd faults that are caused by the Accuscore ( OOR that are not OOR , Just Sweep at 2nd guard &amp; no table run , Go Figure ??!

            Good Luck &amp; as my Head Tech says "It's usually something so simple it's looking at ya ! "

              I'm going out on a limb here but did you check the masking unit swith. If its not wired in correctly it will let the lane run when its off....just wont let it cycle. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img]
