Does anyone know how or can fix amb transponders. I have a couple playing up. One was only counting every 2nd lap and I think the other one had a weak output from memory.

Mine wasn't counting so well also, i raised it to by the aerial mount on my 12th and seems to be counting fine now.

Where are yours mounted?

I’ve had to change the plugs a couple of times sometimes this can be a issue as well.

It was the nationals. It was playing up at club before I went. Both loops were on the ground. Other one was in my truck. Both times I put a different transponder in and it was all good.

I fixed a friends one. It was doing somthing similar and it was inside the transponder. The soulder joints inside can crack. I found a tube video in how to resoulder and repair it.
Has worked for a season with no problems.

Hi ,

As a last resort you could try element82 limited , they seem to be the main mylaps distributor in nz . They are in rosedale but are also on Facebook etc . Seems like a knowledgeable guy and quite helpful..... we brought a couple of transponders from them , pretty sure they can do repairs but maybe $$$$ ?
