    Master Card input pin failure

    Hello:
    I have been a strange problem with may J3 and J4... Not a short circuit because there is no numbers in the input area when I turn on my master card (parallel port). The Output is ok.
    My pins in J3 and J4
    05-06-08-09 group 1
    15-16-18-19 group 2
    25-26-28-29 group 3
    35-36-38-39 group 4
    What it suppose to be ? Where is the problem ? Any IC burned ?
    Any idea ?

    Thanks

    Cesar

    Hi Cesar,
    Are you using the 40 ribbon cable from OC? I found that some of these are unreliable, and have the connectors splicing through a couple of wires instead of a single one.

    I have 2 cables that were not ok, and all of my inputs in certain areas were jumbled.

    Can you try replacing these, or testing with multi-meter to see if its ok?

    Cheers
    Chris

    Hi Chris
    I did all test before this post.
    My first thought was the cable... I replaced it and the problem continued.
    So I decided to get a single double wire and test every single pin.
    That's why I discovered every pin position in each group failure and both J3 and J4.
    Itīs not a random jump but the same pin group failure. Every final 5-6-8 and 9. I hope you or someone else could help me because I am not eletronic expert.
    Regards
    Cesar

    In the Annex II manual the author mentions that problem. It is a parallel port configuration problem. Download the manual from the site. It is in the first section.

    Actually you need to use PayPal with OC.
