Help me troubleshoot my BSD


#1

BSD is resetting during play when both flippers are flipped at the same time. Where should I start?


#2

start here and see if it makes any sense to you: http://www.pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Williams_WPC#Game_resets


#3

My guess is it’s a voltage issue, low line voltage will cause resets when both flippers are flipped at the same time. I’m not very sure. Others?


#4

I agree with bdols. It is a low 5v issue. No better way than going through the pin wiki step by step; however, there is a short cut: buy the wpc daughterboard and then plug and play.

Let us know how you progress.


#5

I use the Kahr boards in several of my games due to voltage drops in the summer months and haven’t had a reset since.


#6

Same here. I have had a Kahr board in my Dredd that is on location for the last 5 months and not a problem since it was installed.


#7

Thanks all. I started to dig in, but have an injured knee and couldn’t keep working as it was hard to stand. I will dig in soon and update.


#8

Order yourself a kahr and install it once you heal which is hopefully soon!


#9

Whoa, Those Kahrs are affordable. Ordering now. Thanks All.


#10

It’s still worth fixing the root problem. It’s often the BR and Cap but there are other things that can happen. I use the Kahr for the summer when AC use drops voltage.
Best of luck.

BSD is back in action. Reseated some connectors again and made sure boards were grounded correctly. I think J103 was the issue
