I have a big buck hunter pro cabinet that has been upgraded to an open season machine, every so often the screen fades to a blue tint for a few seconds, this machine will also reset itself on an occasion. Any ideas?

    The dcv output is 5.01 but I can't find the trimmer to make the adjustment. What exactly am I looking for?

    What does the power supply board look like?

  • wgutzke May 26, 2011

    I have looked up what the box looks like that you are talking about, but I can't locate anything that looks like that in the cabinet anywhere, where the power cord plugs into the machine there is just a metal plate with a fuse on it then the power is split about four ways following these splits leads me to the vent fan, the coin acceptor, the CPU which then leads to a small board with 1 capacitor and 2 fuses on it, that inturn diverts power to the tournament sign on the top of the machine, and to another board ( that must be the I/0 board) that has a few capacitors, and say big buck hunter on it. (none of the capacitors are buldged or damaged looking). The power is then diverted to the monitor. Looking at all of these boards and the plate, I cannot find a trimmer anywhere on them. Nor can I find anykind of box, this is a 2008 big buck hunter cabinet.... Am I just not seeing it or am I seeing it and not recognizing it?

    Is the power supply box in the Dell CPU or is it after the Dell CPU on the wall of the cabinet? All I can find is a metal plate with a fuse where the cabinet is plugged into the wall.

    I did everything that was suggested here and the machine works much better now, thanks. My buck hunter pro machine does not have a power supply board of it's own that is all run through the Dell tower. There was no trimmer to adjust the 5v output. I think that part of my problem might have been the fuse board that I have has the 16v capacitor in the c-11 slot. That particular board has problems with causing the machine to reset, that and loose connection on one of the ground wires caused the problems.

Hi wgutzke,

I see that you are experiencing fading on the screen and sometimes resets itself on occasions as you mentioned in your post.

Have you tried checking for any lose connections on the machine that can possibly cause shortage in the power or possible ground to the machine, this can be the cause of a fading screen and a reset on an occassion.

Try disconencting every conenction and start conencting everything one by one from scratch then try the machine again if the issue will occur.

Also if possible try a different power outlet from where it is connected and also if you can use a surge protector instead of directly conencting the machine to a power outlet.


I hope that this will be of help.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

You need to adjust the power supply voltage output set the 5v to 5.5 volts.reset the power board connectors a loose connectors can cause a voltage drop to the main board causing the system to reset it self.re tighten connectors...make sure they fits the terminal.

The power supply board is the board which the power cord(wall plug) is connected.the adjustmen pot is located inside the case of the power supply board .The case of the power supply is a metal with a small hole for voltage adjustment.Use a small precession screw driver (jewelry screw) to adjust the pot.

Sometimes a simple voltage drop can cause the system to reset to determine if you have a voltage drop measure the voltage from the power supply output terminal and measure the voltage from the game board then compare the reading both from the power supply board terminal and the mainboard voltage.if you a big deference on the reading you have a voltage drop from the connectors..the connectors heats up also the wires.youre connectors are loose and re tighten them.

good luck and let me hear if you have further question...

Good day!

Please try to go at the back of the machine and open the back cover.
Try to look at the power supply board and check the output voltage.It should have 5.10vdc if you have less than that voltage please adjust it.

Thank you

I have the big buck hunter pro for my tv, ive tried to do the shootgun calibration from multiple tvs and stood as far back as possible and it still wont calibrate, the menu button will not work either


I'm having the same problem. I found that if I put the LED box on TOP of the TV, it will recognize the first target, but not the second or subsequent targets.
It looks to me like this will only work with a smaller TV. The angles seem too large on a big screen TV. I've contacted the manufacturer to see if my guess is right.

When turning Buck Hunter Pro on i am getting an error message error 0x01 Loading Linux - 2.6.12-bs thei text keeps repeating on the screen.


You most probably have a hard drive problem, corrupt software or less likely a motherboard problem. First step is to reimage the hard drive. You need an install disk to do this. If one isn't present you can obtain one from a distributor such as Betson in the US or Brent Electronic in the UK. After turning the machine on open the coin door and press the DVD button on the computer to open the DVD drive's door. Insert the disk and close the door. Turn the power off then back on again. The software will now install, and follow any instructions. If the game doesn't run properly you will need specialist help. I would suggest sending the core computer to a distributor or specialist dealer for testing and repair.

When big buck hunter pro is turned on I'm getting system boot failure. This has happened a few time over the last month. The last time it happed I turned game off and it booted up. This time it is not.


Reimage the hard drive by opening the DVD drive door and inserting the recovery disk, which is obtainable from a distributor such as Betson in the US. Close the DVD drive door and power the game off then on again. Follow any on-screen instructions as the software installs. If this procedure fails or the game still gives trouble, you may have a failing hard drive. You could attempt replacement yourself if you feel up to it, or alternatively send the entire computer unit to a distributor or specialist dealer for testing and possible repair as necessary.

Computer turns on but screen displays "no signal"


I am an amusement arcade game technician. I have found that the Big Buck Hunter Pro arcade games that use DELL pc's are fine, but the ones that use the "generic" pc inside have a tendency to overheat, causing capacitors to fail on the motherboard. You need to replace the caps , or get another motherboard.
