    First of all, Welcome to Bowltech!

    It would be helpful to know what scoring system, and ball detects you are using to help with the diagnosis.
    I have had similar problems with the ball detects on the Vector system because of loose wires in the connectors. Both on the ball detect and on the cable out to the camera.

    Carefully pull on each individual wire at the connectors. If one is loose, or only hanging by one or two strands it will pull out without much trouble.
    You don't have to be crazy to do this job...But it helps!

        We are useing the vector system, i checked the connectors from the beam to the camera and from the electrical box and they seemed solid. we got a hold of brunswick and they said either the switch connected to rake arm or the distribution board.
