    Default Babel-reset after 'empty hopper' error

    I noticed on my Babel that when the hopper empties and you get the HE error that I can't reset it with the door key.

    On my IGT machine all I have to do is fill the hopper, close the door and turn the door key to the left and it resets and the bonus round continues.

    The only way that I can reset and keep a bonus round going is to press the round buttton on the door inside that you use to change the odds.

    The only problem with that is that the hopper will spit out the coins before the door is closed and you better be ready to catch them or your picking them up off the floor.

    Does the door key reset the HE error on anybody elses Babel?

    Just trying to find out if it's behaving properly or not.

    BABEL - Key Reset or Soft Reset

    Mine does nothing either.
    There is a sensor just inside the door but I no voltage going to it.

    That's strange...
    I actually have 5 volts at the red and yellow wire at the sensor when measured from red to black and yellow to black.

    I'm thinking that: red=power, black=gnd, yellow=trigger.

    Turning the key doesn't change the 5 volt signal on either wire.

    Oppsss Ya know it does help if ya set the meter to volts not amps


    BLACK = Gnd -5vdc
    PINK = +5vdc
    WHITE = Trigger +5vdc when s/w is closed
    0 vdc when s/w is open

    So your sensor is actually working but still doesn't do a soft reset?

    Does anyone else's door key actually work to reset the machine?

    Yes it's working but machine gives no reaction when activated.

    Messing with it just gave me an idea.. since it is not doing anything at this time.

    I'll just take my little DPDT Relay Rig and remove the old sensor and pop in

    a reed s/w or somthing in my junk drawers and use the LEFT TURN of the KEY

    to get more tokens.. since i keep the keys hidden except when I play.

    My Babel responds in the same way, as this is going to be a christmas present for my old mum, who wont be able to deal with such complexities, what is the minimum number of coins required to run a machine so you never need to open it up to refill the hopper ? (only got 400 at the mo!)
    thanks

    I have the same issue with my machine. However, here is something to try: If you have your machine set to turn off (play the music, etc.) after a BB, you can see if the left turn will reset the machine then. This is the only time the key works for me.

    Just my two tokens.

    Welcome Marc(t10)! I agree with Arby, 1000 to 1400 or so.
    Check my member page here or...

    Temporarily, go to youtube.com and search for BudgeRahe for videos. Until I get the links set up in the museum

    Aruze group (eleco and macy) and Yamasa are prominent makers
    but their products can't be reset errors by door key.
    so japanese parlor workers have to use reset button inside the machine
    and catch the medals which are spat out.

    as far as i know, SNK (they had a relationship with Aruze.) and Kitac's machines are also can't be reset the error by door key.

    Sammy(Rodeo) ,Daito and Sankyo(Bisty)'s machine can be reset by door key.

    i remember Daiichi's machine also can't be reset by door key.

    Let me try again! Why do the Yamasa models have a reset switch on the door if it doesn't work? What is the switch for?

    i think switch inside the neo planet's door works to reset the error
    but i remember, kingpulsar has reset button on power supply insted of on the door.

    if 'reset switch' indicates 'reset by door key', this will work when machine is frozen
    after BB by such setting beforehand.
    if what i wrote causes any misleading, i just apologize for that.

    That switch resets the odds on the Neo series.
