  • Powerless Pinswitch.

    I seem to have no power going to one of the pin switches on a GS10, so its not recognising, and solenoid grippers are remaining open waiting for a drop.Ive tested the output at the HV box and nothing on the one pin setter. Ive changed the board, the box the ribbons and the Game setter Box but still nothing. All help appreciated. Phil U.K.

    Re: Powerless Pinswitch.

    Carefully check the wiring.
    Give each wire a firm tug, like you are streatching a rubber band.
    Sometimes they can break inside the insulation.

    Also make sure that the pin holder connector is firmly in place. Sometimes the pins dont line up, and it wont seat correctly.
    You could also have an issue with the micro switches on the pin holder its self.
    Swap it out with a spare.

    Good luck.

      I don't believe there's any voltage going out on the switch wiring. It is merely completing the circuit back to the box.

      You should check the continuity of the switch through both the setting deck cable and the external setting deck cable. I have this wiring diagram that shows connections (click to see larger view).




      Not sure if this wiring diagram is the same for your machines, but this may help
      Use ADANA (Attention to Detail And Never Assume) or take a SWAG (Scientific Wild Ass Guess)at it

        Check the continuity between the common and switch in the table cable. You can check them at the control box and manually activate the switch open and closed to check the wiring all the way through.

              yeh grounds, at least on the gs98s, are run common and have often broke at turn points. Check all connections along with point to point.

                Just replace the table cable with a good one or swap with another lane and see what happens. Most likly it is a broken wire in the cable under the insolation. It usualy is 1 to 2 inches back. Hope this helps..

                    Check the plug on the HV box, I've seen the pins push out of the connector or the wires pull out of the plug.

                      Ok, the next thing to look at is swapping out the I/O board.
                      I have had a faulty board cause this problems, except on my machine it was the #10 pin holder that was staying open.

                        I have also had this problem be the CPU board. It was the 7 pin in my case.

                        edit*

                        Never mind, I see you've already changed the CPU. Did you use a known working Gamesetter box (from another pair) or use one from your inventory?
