recently bought powerball techno from amazon
having problems when the flashing lights display my score
it says in the instruction manual that when the last LED light goes off,
my score will appear but it hardly ever does,
its only ever appeared twice,
is there something wrong with it or am i doing something wrong?
shouldnt the score appear every time?
thanks for your help.
You are possibly in the wrong mode, or maybe your aren't relaxing your grip properly allowing the rotor to completely stop spinning on its circular axis.
if the blue light is on or blinking, the score won't appear when the last light goes out, as you're in the 30 sec mode. you need to speed up the ball durign the period where there is no blue light, which is during the first 18 (i think) seconds after the first red light goes on.
I usually just take the techno up to where two lights are on and hold it there until i'm ready to do a speed run, that way it never goes into 30 second mode without me wanting to, but if the blue light does come on, I use my thumb to slow it until the LEDs just barely extinguish and then speed it up again right away, this is also a good way to reset the current high score if you want see what you're getting with your slower hand for example. But then again i've been using powerballs for a couple months now so I've got the technique down at this point
also, if that's not the problem, make sure you're spinning the rotor in the direction of the arrow to start, or the score will appear facing your palm instead
