  • GSX Error Code 70-73

    Let me start this by saying I am not a mechanic and have very little experience working on any pinsetters. Yet, I have no mechanic at the moment and am trying to survive. On one of my pinsetters I am getting a combination of Error Codes ranging from 70-73. I have turned the Nexgen setting to motor and the deck will move using the clockwise setting. However, it will not seem to move in the counter-clockwise setting. If I run it in diagnostic mode it will stop and throw up one of the error codes. I feel as though this may be an electrical problem, in which case I'll be even more screwed, cause I really don't want to mess around and get electrocuted. I've checked the alignment like the manual said and it seems to be correct. If anyone has a few easy things I can check for I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    Check the reversing fuses on the HV board (bottom board in nexgen).

      KC make sure you cut the nexgen box off or better yet unplug it and check fuses with meter. If you need to give me or one of the other members a call and we can try to trouble shoot it over the phone.

        Maybe check the switch cluster and see if switch actuator are meeting up with switches located on table shaft on top.

          There is one common wire to all the ABC &D switches, it is in position #8 in the plug on P1 (or P23). But if the table does stop at '0', that common wire is ok.

            Everytime that happens at out center, it turns out to be the fuses in the NexGen box. One other time the B switch fell out of the holder.
