Hello, there are no repair manuals for these machines. Also converting a machine to use quarters in not recomended. On big pay outs, as many as 400 to 700 quarters will be paid out. Do you want all your friends walking away with all the winnings? Tokens are cheap, about 7 cents a peice. A lot cheape...

Could it be the rectifier is blocking the back up power going to the memory?

If you replace the back up with something at least similar to what was there is better than what you have now.

Ok Magic, read your post on the battery replacement. Did you replace nicads, with Nicads? Were they fresh and charged ? If they were not fully charged, it could be why there is a problem. Although the machine when on, should recharge the batterys, if it's not on long enough it can't charge the batte...

Generly the battery back up voltage was 3.5 to 4.5 volts, do you know what the battery was that you removed? How far away from the circuit board did you mount the battery pack? I remember you said you mounted it on the side of the light box, believe it or not, if it's a little too far away, it can m...

Hey there you go! I thought I had mentioned something about the battery's in the back box, but looking back I didn't :scratch: Oh well you figued the problem out. Just keep an eye on those battery's, don't let them leak. That was a big problem years back, batterys would leak, and damage circuit boar...

Take a look at the contacts for the roll under, if it has leaf switch's.
Or does it use a regular switch.
Use the ohm setting on your DVM to see if it's the switch that's bad. Unplug it from the circuit first.

I would just go with lamps, as you said I think they would be kinda blusish white for the LEDs.

I bought some chrome Ball Bearings, 1-1/16", they looked really sharp roling around the play field! They would scratch, but it took time.

Nice! I always liked a quick fix :lol: Good to see you have rubbers comin, and some balls. Make sure those balls are clean and not rusted or scratched. Also check the batterys in the light box, make sure they don't leak. That would not be a good thing. I bought some balls from Happ, years back and s...

Magic whats not working about it? There is a switch that closes when the ball is waiting to be put into play, have you checked it for proper adjustment? Are the contacts clean... Does the solenoid that kick's the ball into play work? Other than that, I don't know a lot about electronic machines. But...

My Eleco had those, a real pain to change out. That's why I wanted to go to LED, they run cooler and use half the current.

Sounds like a power issue, is the power supply giving the proper power needed to run the video card.
Sounds to me like it is not.

I second that Chris.
Can you test for power on your video card? Don't know if you have experience with a meter or not.
Let us know!

Hi TC, like Lou said, don't advertise... Some states are really strict on gambling laws, Pachislos are not a gambling devise, but you can't get that through the thick heads of states sometimes. If your worried, hide it like you said, do you have a dark hideaway some where in your house? If you remov...

Hello, and welcome! I see you already found your game in the data base, that's a start. Yama would most likely know where to look for a basic manual for your game, I'm sure he will be along later. You can also check the pachislo FAQ area, a lot of information there too. I looked at stealth Home Amus...

It's nice to see these being restored to tip top condition, I wonder do they do there own work? It would be interesting to see the begining and the .. well the end we see on the floor. Nice work.
