TFTC switch problems

Post by prock on Sat Oct 20, 2012 8:47 pm

Finally had some time to get to the bottom of all the switch problems I was having with my TFTC. There was a few switches not working properly... turns out there was a wire that fell off of a switch which affected several switches in that switch row (only switches further down in the chain). I found it after inspecting all the switches affected. Re-soldered that one and everything was operational except for one pesky drop target. The drop target switch was constantly registering as being on and would never register a hit. After removing the whole assembly and playing around with it for a bit it turned out to be a bad diod... replaced the diod and it's now fixed Very Happy It's probably a very rare problem to have a bad diod on a switch but this proves that it does happen.

Off to play some TFTC!

Got my TFTC handle yesterday Very Happy Cant wait to mount this thing. Need to get a switch from marco first and it's ready to go. I didn't realize that the handle is actually plastic with plating.

Found another small issue with one of the VUKs.. one needs to be re-built as the ball doesn't sit in the "basket" very well.
