  • Omegatek Problem 1

    Table at 355, sweep at 270, fingers closed, 1st ball light and strike light on. Also, pinspotter jumps back to 2nd ball after spotting new set of pins. Replaced TA1 & SA switches. Other boards working fine. Sent back to Murrey, they returned and said nothing wrong with board.

    Check your cam lever adjustments and your off spot switch.

      You stated you changed TA1 and SA. If you are having problems with the switches, save yourself the hassle and change all 3 for both the table or sweep. But before you change both of them, you can spray a solvent in there such as WD-40 to try to clean the switches up. SA and TA2 are repsonible for changing cycles when the table and sweep are going up. Also try disconnecting your OS switch, as it can be used to change cycles as well.

        <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">You have the right idea, but I don't know if an oil-based solvent would be the best thing to use... if the oil manages to migrate into the contacts, they will cause problems. The 'signal voltage' applied to the camswitches does't have enough amperage to cause an arc when the switches open or close... so they will not "self-clean" like the contactors will... there just isn't enough spark there to burn gunk off the contact pads.

        I'd recommend something like CAIG DeoxIT D5, ECG Electronics Wash, ECG Delicate Parts Cleaner, or a quality brand of motor/contact cleaner that's safe for rubber and plastic. Compounds like these will remove the gunk, and evaporate cleanly.

        Also, your best bet is to change out the switches... they don't have too much in the way of open areas to get a spray cleaner into, so it's not guaranteed that spraying them off will help. If the plunger is sticking, it'll probably work, but if the contacts are carboned or gunked up, it probably won't have much effect.

          Yeah, Take Gman's advice--change all the T-S-OS micros as cheap as they are. Will save you some headaches down the road as they are good for several million clicks!!

            Thanks for the suggestions. Will try changing the remaining switches when my shipment arrives.

              To save time in the future, build up a pair of "switch packs". They're identical for sweep or table, so you can use one of them whenever you know of a specific problem.

              MP Chassis Tester

              Good morning,
              I have built a tester for the MP Chassis for the 82-70 machines. Instead of using the cam switches
              I am using relays. My question is to anyone that may...

              *sigh* Hello friends..

              I had a 4:1 go bad and I've never seen or done one before. Trying to search the depths of the forums, YouTube videos, it didn't seem too bad....

              Is anyone running the solderless relays on the accelerators? How do you like them? What brand? How difficult to convert was it? Would love the feed back as I'm about to switch...
