Gyrus replacement driver cannot be secured to driver tray. Thread posts too short.

Symptoms

  • When replacing an older legacy driver with a Gyrus driver, the driver tray thread posts appear to be too short and there is no room to attach the wingnuts to secure it.

Environment

  • Indoor Scoreboard
    • Any scoreboard model that utilizes a 0A-1230-0044 driver tray with 2 transformers.
    • BB-2115

Cause

  • The nylon standoffs, required so the old driver did not short to the cabinet, are still on the threaded mounting posts.

Resolution

  • Remove the nylon standoffs and discard.
  • Mount the Gyrus driver flush with the driver tray. This should allow enough thread exposure for the wingnuts to purchase/make contact.
