Hello wiredoug, here is a copy of the email sent to Homepin sales, they did not reply, perhaps you can send it through to them . My email here is [email protected]
Also. I have ordered a few new replacement ribbon cables for these machines as well , just to eliminate them as a source of the problems. It’s so annoying that it’s so intermittent. I swapped the two boards now between pinbot and STTNG. Occasionally at switch on STTNG still shows a flicker of data on the DMD then it starts normally, it must be a perk of the new boards. I have a second STTNG here for repairs with original CPU pcb and it does not have this anomaly.Email to Homepin as follows. Thanks for you info so far.
I have used two of your Homepin Williams wpc replacement pcbs. Below is my post on pin side asking for some help. Someone said to contact you directly, hoping you can help.
The second board I used in a bride of Pinbot. I have both machines here on test before going back to the customers.. pinbot works well but interesting enough it blew a fuse yesterday on switch on which stopped the face from rotating. No shorts found and new fuse restored all functions, just like the STTNG??
just looking for feedback on these replacement PCBs. I have used two of them . One in a STTNG, all good for 6 mths, but have a new intermittent problem now. Power up and occasionally we get immediate, garbled dmd display and immediately some coils lock on , so the solenoid 7 amp fuse blows. Replace fuse and all good for weeks at a time. Has happened a few times. I would have thought the cpu would not allow anything to happen until boot and the bongs happen etc. voltage rails seem Ok. Original pcb was battery damaged of course.
I would like to know if it’s a small error with the homepin pcb as I have not seen this type of problem on Williams before.
any help appreciated.
Also are the setting of the switches on the pcb important? Left to right all down and last 2 on the right are up. That’s how they were when the boards were fitted.
Hoping to hear from you soon ….Sent from my iPad
