AKA Excalibur Board / Connection Question

Recently picked up this excal, the bolt will cycle, but won't actually fire a ball.

I was looking for information about the board and how to connect it via usb to my computer. Does anyone know where I can get the cables for this? Or does anyone have information about this thing ?

I believe that's an old Nelson board. If that's the case, you'd need a specific cable(s), software, and serial port to usb adapter. The Nelson boards were not designed to be user serviceable, and you'd likely be better off upgrading to a WAS, Pandora, or Tadao Musashi 5 (M5) board. I would not recommend the Tadao Ebisu (USB) board unless the solenoids have been upgraded from MAC to Humphries.

A copy of the owner's manual can be found here: http://www.mcarterbrown.com/manuals/AKA/Excalibur.pdf

If I were to get one of these boards, where could I get said cable?

Thanks for the help. I see you on CC a bunch

You would likely need to find one used on one of the forums, eBay, or facebook. You may not find that necessary however as most of the settings are programmable through the trigger. I thought I recognized the screen name. Welcome to the AKA community.

If you don't have any luck finding a board, and you're on Facebook. Look up and join the Akalmp owners group on Facebook.

its not mine, its a buddy of mine. He's in all the fbook groups, he's just not very tech savy when it comes to the electronics of these guns. so i thought i'd try my luck over here on PBN.

I'd check the rear hammer cartridge. When I first got mine the hammer was almost off the shaft.
