Studio C Tech Terminal
Understanding the Tech Terminal is an important part of
troubleshooting your show. We will attempt to cover all the basic
operations of the Tech Term in this article. We have also listed all the
movements (Bits) in both the #1 and #2 DTUs (Digital Terminal Units).
Important Note:
It is important to understand that when you first plug in
the Tech Term you will only see a flashing cursor on the on
the LCD display. This is normal, press the menu button to
show the display in figure 1.
Let’s start by selecting DTU #1, the top DTU. You can do this 2
different ways. The first way is by plugging the Tech Term into one of the
two “phone type” jacks at the front of your stage. The other way is to plug
the Tech Term directly into the gray DTU box located behind the stage.
This can be done by, unplugging the “phone type” cable that is plugged
into the right side of the gray box. You can then plug the Tech Term
directly into that “phone type” plug.

Bank #01 <1-64>
Figure 2
DTU Configuration
Bank #02 <65-128>
Figure 3
In figure 1, the Tech Term is displaying the two options it is capable of
performing. The first option is “Configuration”. Every show has two
DTUs, one for the character movements and one for the lights. Both
DTUs are identical, in order for the computer to send the right information
to the right DTU we must first tell the DTUs which one is #1 and which
one is #2. To perform this option, press the #1 on the keypad to enter into
the configuration mode.
At this point your display should like figure 2. This tells you that the
DTU you are plugged into is configured as #1 <1-64>, which is correct for
the top DTU.
Repeat the same procedures to set the bottom DTU #2. It should be set
to Bank #02 <65-128> as shown in figure 3.
If you should have to change from Bank #01 (Character Movements) to
Bank #02 (Lighting) press the arrow up or down button to toggle between
the two. You should only have to do this if you have just received a new
DTU.
Important Note:
When done, always exit by pressing the Menu button until
you see a blank screen. This will save your current settings.

Studio C Tech Terminal
Arm out (R)
Channel : 01 Off
Status : Clear
F1 = BL/CL F2 = On/Off
Figure 4
Important Note:
If you turn on a movement (Bit) in
“Diagnostics” and leave it on, it will
stay on until you power down the DTU.
Always remember to turn the
movement (Bit) off before
disconnecting the Tech Terminal from
the DTU.
The next option in figure 1 is “Diagnostics”. This function will allow you
to do 2 things, turn on a movement (Bit) or Blind a movement.
Press the #2 “Diagnostics” on the tech terminal to enter into the screen
shown in figure 4. Let’s start by turning on the “Arm out (R)” movement on
Chuck E Cheese, this is done by pressing F2 on the Tech Term. Chuck E’s
arm should move and the corresponding led should light. Press F2 again
and the bit (LED) will go off. You select other movements (Bits) by using
the arrow keys.
Now let’s look at the BL/CL (Blind/Clear) command. This command is
used to stop a movement (Bit) from functioning. If for example, Chuck E’s
arm breaks in the middle of a party, you would want to blind that movement
until you could repair it when the party was over. If you leave it blinded and
exit using the menu button until you see the blank screen, it will stay that
way until you go back in and unblind it by pressing F1 again.
The “Blind” feature should only be used in case of an emergency as in
the example above.

Check and make sure the configuration on DTU #1
is set to #1 1-32. Make sure the daughter board
(CPU) has not come loose from the main board.
Change the configuration on the #1 DTU to #2 3364 and try to make a movement happen. Change it
back when you are done with this step.
Unplug and replug the cop controller.
Check the cable from the cop controller to the
transmitter card in the main computer.
Unplug the cable that goes from the DTU to the
cop controller at the cop controller and move it
directly to the transmitter card in the main
computer. This will bypass the cop controller.
Swap the DTU #1 daughter board (CPU) with the
DTU #2 daughter board (CPU). Make sure you use
the Tech Terminal to change the configuration once
they have been moved, #1 to #1,1-32 and #2 to #2,
33-64.
Remove the computer from the rack and open the
top. Reseat the transmitter card.
Check for bad soldier joints on the transmitter card
main board. Pay close attention to the area around
the crystal (X1), U6, U2, U7, U8 and J4
Check to make sure you have a 47K resistor
attached to the legs of the crystal (X1) on the
transmitter card main board

Chroma Key (BVS Masterkey) Adjustment
1. Be sure the Chroma key unit in the rack is turned on (toggle switch on back).
2. Be sure the JVC camera inside the camera prop has power (green LED on rear of
camera.
3. Be sure the floodlights above the blue screen stage, are turned on, and that the
fluorescent lights behind the blue screen are turned.
4. Adjust the iris (brightness) and focus and zoom on the lens of the JVC camera for the
best picture, with a person or other large object in front of the camera. Zoom in all
the way, so that none of the inside of the camera prop is visible, and that none of the
area outside the edges of the blue screen are visible. Zoom and focus are independent
in these lenses, so the lens must be refocused if the zoom is changed.
5. If there is no picture at all, it is possible that the REF OUT and PROGRAM IN parts
of the cable from JVC camera are switched. There have been instances in the past
when a mistake by the cable fabricator has switched those, which are the short black
and gray cable s coming from the larger black cable.
6. The remaining adjustments need video fill, which can be had either by starting up the
show, or by simply turning on the DVD players and pressing “PLAY.” The Sigma
A/V switcher will pass video by its default settings if the show has not been started
up.
7. Remove the cover from the front of the chroma key unit in the rack. Adjust these
pots shown in the drawing below.

8. Adjust the “SC” pot in the JVC camera to fully counterclockwise, to adjust the color
of the fill video.
9. It may be necessary to remove one or both of the fluorescent lights from the bottom
of the camera prop, in order to reduce or eliminate reflected glare at the bottom of the
image. Lower wattage lamps may also help. The reflection of the red light on top the
camera prop is unavoidable, but minimal.
10. For better picture, change fluorescent lamps at bottom of camera to 25 watt (2 lamps).
11. If you still have issues related with the picture quality, try turning on dips 1, 2, 3, and
8 one at a time to find best picture.
