Helping to set up a tournament field last weekend where the Driver Interface LEDs were not illuminating, but the Match Controller LEDs were both green. We would expect the **Disable **LED to be illuminated.
There were 3 fields at this tournament - only one field had this problem.
These steps did not resolve it:
Unplug USB from Match Controller
Plug USB back into Match Controller
Both Match Controller LEDs become green
Driver Controller LEDs are not illuminating
- For either Driver Controller connected to the Match Controller
Tried different Match Controllers - same results
Tried different Driver Controllers - same results
Tried different network cables - same results
Tried different laptop - same results
Since the Match Controller’s LEDs were both coming up green, decided to start up the Tournament Software, but that didn’t make any difference.
We overcame this issue by just using a manual competition switch - this was for the Skills field.
I’m suspecting this is a USB type issue - but troubleshooting information is limited. The forum post “Field Control - a technical analysis” is helpful, but I do not find where/how the Driver Controller will not have any LEDs illuminated if the Match Controller’s LEDs are green.
Is there a reason the Match Controller would show both LEDs green, but not illuminate any of the LEDs on the Driver Interface Controller?
Are there other troubleshooting steps that can be done?
Has anyone created an interface test device - maybe similar to a PoE (Power over Ethernet) test?
