    Hi mate,
    On your machines is strike cycle determined via the camera or respot cell wires? Also do you have 5 boards, XOP's or Omega-Tek boards? When you bowl does the Accuscore score a Strike or not?
    AS REQUESTED....The all new and VERY improved "super cool" Pin_Head with super hip shades.....

        Are all the wires attached to your respot cells?
        Little more info would help.

          You can put a rag / cloth over the camera and cycle the machine. It should run a strike cycle.
          If not replace the camera / pcb's. Use the targets to adjust the camera to ensure that it can see all ten pins.

              Your camera is seeing something that isnt there.You need to replace or adjust your camera.Do you have expander boards in your chassis? They allow short strike cycle and sweep reverse on gutter ball or 7 10 pickoff.If it isnt your camera we can elaborate further.

                  You still haven’t answered if you have cameras. If so try Alastair’s method of blacking out the camera with the scoring on.

                  If you got a strike cycle (with the rag on)then you have some other light source the camera is picking up such as a torn curtain or shiny spot on your sweep arms. Either that or the camera needs re-adjusted

                  What is the count displayed on the monitor?

                    Try swapping out the Omega Tek MK-70 board. If you have cells attached, it may be seeing a pin that not there (due to bad MK-70)
                    I've had enough of hope & chains.

                          Bam glad you got it and thanks for posting back with the solution. A lot of newbies don’t do this an I become reluctant helping these people anymore.
