SOURCE: valley dart board flashes numbers

When the dart board refuses to score points, this is usually as a result of failure in some of the sensors on the board. Usually the unit is designed in such a way that the board has sensors which determine which point is hit by the dart but when the sensors become weak or experience failures of various degrees then the unit is prone to experience failure in scoring and recording points because the sensors cannot determine exact points where the darts are pinned. Fixing the sensors usually require expert service so it would be advicable to refer it to an expert.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

What are the general rules of playing darts?

The rules of darts are quite basic. I will outline them for you here:

  • - Each player turn consists of throwing 3 darts
  • - Both feet must remain behind the throw line until the dart has been thrown
  • - Darts that bounce off the board (by hitting the wires) do not score and cannot be re-thrown
  • - If a dart falls out of the board during your turn, the darts are disqualified and the points do not count
  • - Darts dropped accidentally can be picked up and still played
  • - After 3 throws, the player must remove their darts from the board

I have a panasonic pt-51hx42. I was just

your convergence power supply blew a fuse & probably one if not both of the STK ics. Normally when this happens the short takes out the low value resistors connected to the ics.
it is common practice in the shop to replace both STKs and resistors
