Awana Finish Line detector

Post by rmcq827 » Fri Apr 03, 2015 8:36 pm

We have used an awana finish line detector for years with great success. This year the unit will not reset and all lights continue flashing. I have checked cables, lights, sensors, etc. with no luck. Any thoughts or is it time to buy a new finish line?

PS it has no model # or manufacture information.

Do you have any photos of the unit? Perhaps somebody might be able to identify it visually.

As far as I know, that's a rather ancient RaceMaster timer. I would recommend that you get a new timer, as it likely isn't worth the amount of money to send it in for repairs, assuming the manufacturer will even do a repair on it.

When is your race?

Thanks, Unfortunately our race is next weekend. We will just have to set up a camera to help with any close finishes.

I may be able to help on the timer issue. Where in the Denver area are you? I'm in Highlands Ranch.
