My Fish Tales decided last night to develop reel issues. It was fine the previous time I played it. Now, the reel spins longer than it should after each ball is locked. When the second ball goes into the caster's club, it doesn't end up in a hole in the reel (the reel isn't going into the correct position after the first ball is locked.)
What I've done:
-Verified that optos work fine in test mode
-Verified that reel test works with no issues
-Replaced connectors to motor controller board
-Replaced rubber ring between gearbox and reel
What am I missing here? I'm stumped.
*Edit 9/1/14* This seems to have been simply a case of a loose connector on the CPU. Everything seems to be resolved now!
