Re: golf simulator

Thanks for your help Benimur. I took your advice and dowloaded and updated everything! :) There weren't any real errors to speak of but it's still not working. I took the unit to a mates today to satisfy my curiosity, tried to run it on his PC (serial to serial) and it still didn't recognise it!!

Now I'm in trouble I guess. Seems like it's a hardware issue. Now I need to find someone who'll look at the sensor for me!

Hi again,

Appreciate the update. Since as you posted you tried it to serial to serial then I would have to agree with you that the problem is with the hardware.

Perhaps this may be of help to you and whoever will look over the sensor. To my knowledge USB connection would at most require 4 wires (+5, GND, Data+ & Data-) while most serials would have 9 pins/connection/wires. This link can provide their pinouts.

Offhand, most likely suspect would be the cable or the connector specially the junction of the two.

Incidentally, this link may provide some technical background on the operations of the sensor pad though it would need a technical person to correlate information into actuality. I believe one has to be a member to be able to download the complete file (hopefully together with the illustrations).

Good luck with your project and sorry was not that much assistance.

    If we are to check the sensor's cable, at most that would be continuity check, then any electronics knowledgeable person would be able to perform the check (as long as he has a continuity tester/DVM)

I get a error initializing scanner?

Background of issue- When 4345/M4345 boots up, amber light comes on under start button and the message "Initializing Scanner" is displayed. The unit will print but will not preform any scan functions.

Steps taken to try to resolve issue:
1. Updated firmware
2. Restored factory defaults
3. Took off cover in back of printer covering scanner controller board and reseated all cables
4. Took apart scan unit and cleaned (2)mirrors in scan head
5. Took off back cover of unit, reseated cables coming from scanner controller board
6. Ran Scanner Test, in menu (which everything functions properly)

Usually I would say scanner or controller board has failed but I had 3 M4345 come down with this issue in one week. The only resolve i've found for this issue is repetitively turning on and off the unit until it comes up without "scanner initializing" message. Once it comes up it functions 100% until the unit is turned off and issue will come back.

I'm at a loss here with so many units having same issue, open to any advice. I once took the formatter out of bad unit and put it in good one and it caused the issue in the good one but i'm double verifying this tonight. Thanks for any help.

Keep getting this error message i know my copy is the real thing took it out of th ebox last night. error code 0xc004e003

Dear sir
If you want my advice; just reinstall windows.
This error hard to handle since it is in the core of Vista and now you cant access control panel or updae to fix it.

So reinstall, register; and try to keep your system up to date with windows update.

Hi, I recently bought the simulator (

The 16 digit number or the product key for your game is can be found it is CD Case..Look for it there. You can also find it inside the cd installer. Browse in its folder and look for the key. If you can't find it then ask for the key from the store where you bought. Don't forget to rate me.. Thank..

GPS unit quit working

Make sure your unit is not in SIMULATOR MODE.

Press the wrench at the main menu, then the Gear (system) icon. Then look for the option that says SIMULATOR. Make sure that function says OFF. With it ON, you can Simulate a driving route but your GPS will not be working in real time mode.

DST issues

Download and apply the dst updater provided by the manufacturer. All the dst update does is change the day dst starts and stops to conform to what our government in its infinite wisdom (sarcasm heavy) decided what was best for us. Doing it after the fact will not harm anything if that?s what you?re worried about.
