Quoted from gearheaddropping:
Hoping someone out there is familiar with troubleshooting the card dispenser.
My card dispenser is installed and activated within the settings.
It ONLY dispenses cards (5) on the first hit home run......thats it. Nothing happens again until the game is reset. The light only comes on in the card dispenser after that first home run but does not come on when the game is first started.
The button within the card dispenser does nothing before or after that first home run is hit.
I don't see any adjustments or further tests within the software.
Any ideas on this? Any other ways to test it that are straightforward?
First, make sure you are using old cards that don’t have a glossy back. The cards need to be installed in the dispenser with the front of the cards facing the back of the machine.
You need to go into switch test and put your finger between the optos to see if they register. Those optos detect the cards when they come out. I bet those optos are not working. That’s why the machine only dispenses cards once. It can’t count how many cards are coming out and will stop dispensing. The light comes on to either tell the operator there is a problem or the cards are low.
