EDIT: Fix on post #14
I put my GBLE on location about 6 weeks ago. I think I have a Node Board 9 issue but not sure where to go from here. I went to the location at lunch today and took a corresponding working board out of IMDN but the board failed the update process. I know it is a working board as I put it back in IMDN and all is well. (yes, I checked the DIP switches and they were actually the same on both pins which was a nice little surprise).
I can take a video tomorrow if needed of all the technician alerts I'm getting. Basically it looks like the upper playfield is dead and node 9 is not initialized.
After this, I am second guessing a bad node board and maybe some other connection type issue or possibly a fuse? As it was lunchtime, I did not have the time to investigate further. I am second guessing myself on one thing: are the cat5 cables interchangeable? If not, maybe I transposed the cables (both black) when I put the IMDN board in?
Oddly, the manual is pretty silent on fuses and their locations. There is NOT a fuse on this node board. The board has the red power indicator light on so it is at least getting power.
Any help is greatly appreciated. I don't really want to pull the game from the lineup and move it home so I am hoping for a relatively easy fix. Where should I start looking next?
(also, I did NOT put the GBLE node board into IMDN to see if it worked. That would have been ideal but time just didn't allow. My assumption is now that the board is good since the pin acts exactly the same with its original node 9 board and the IMDN board)
