Hi, the motor optos on the idol head and path of adventure has suddenly stopped working. Other optos work fine. Any ideas whats wrong?

#2 4 years ago

Motors wont work either

Check the AUX driver board, the small one in the upper right corner of the backbox, it is what runs the extra drive transistors for the motors and some of the extra optos.

Check the 12Volt on the small opto board (A17042-3) near the left arm assy.
Connector J1 pin1=black=ground, pin2=gray/yellow=+12V (possible 13-15V)

Hi, I tested the machine with the AUX-board from my TZ, and no difference. I will check the 12v on the small optoboard later today. I can see on more than 1 webshop that TAF also has this small optoboard, but I cannot find it in my TAF. In case I need to test with another board.

Couldnt wait. Checked the 12V and the ground. Both ok.

The complete test report is like this:

Error mini pf, check switches/motor
Error idol lock, check switches/motor
Check switch 94 mini pf
Check switch 95 mini pf

Don't find more, in the TAF has no got this opto board, it is only mistake.

The 3 Idol optos and the 2 mini pf optos are on the extra, 9. column in the sw-matrix.
Please check the violet/white wire 4 places (possible tear):
-8 driver extra board connector J5 pin4
-on the mini optoboard J1 pin6
-motor opto sw board and the serial connectors -see the pic-
-there is the sw 94-95 optos below the mini playfield on the backboard -it is hard to find, because need to remove the mini pf.

It is good connection between all these points

Can you try in the IJ another 8 driver board?

#12 4 years ago

I tried the 8-driver board from my TZ. No success.

I have just had this or simular problem. The ribbon wire conection on the CPU was falty. I resoldered the pins of the conector
and all works fine again.

Connecting CPU and 8 Driver Bd.

Im almost to embarrassed to tell, but I just found out that the ribbon cable was disconnected from when I resoldered the battery holder
Everything is working fine now, thanks for all the ideas
