    Default Gamera Slot - High End Version.

    So I saw this on YouTube:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpXylmf5ssc

    Is this the High End Model? If so then where can I find it and how much am I looking at ?

    That is the Gamera High Grade Vision. There seems to be a high failure rate with the LCD on this one so be careful who you buy from and make sure you get one that works and the dealer will back it up.

    Luckydog, there are several machines with the same case, it is the Gamera's that have the problem. The first one I had was bad, I got it replaced from the dealer, he had 14 other bad ones in his warehouse. There is no known fix for these, we know, have spent hours working on them, resetting chips, cables etc. There appears to be a bad ram chip that breaks down while running. Just be warned about the Gamera HGV and make sure the dealer checks it out completely aka run it for an hour or two

    I was thinking about going through Hiro (CF Export). I've heard great things about their Pachinkos (going to pick up a new Indy) though nothing about slots. Either him or pachislo.com, anyone use them?

    Aren't the slots illegal in CA?

    My first Gamera had a bad screen. He sent a replacement...only half the screen worked. He sent another machine at no cost (without the reel and power supply)...and the screen worked great.

    The back kighting on mine died awhile back. You could see that the LCD display was there but the lighting around it went dark. Awhile back Pat sent me some Gamera parts. With them was an LCD display. Swapped out the displays now the lighting was back but the display had problems.

    Did some changing out of parts and put the good outer light frame and electronics on the original LCD screen and all is well now. FYI, if you turn the machine and the screen is dark at times and comes back, it's the lighting assembly that is going bad. Mine did this for about 2 months before it totally died.

    I found this out after MANY times re seating connectors and swapping out cables from my Ultraman which did not fix the problem.

    Thank you for the parts. Pat. They came in handy. The reels are still boxed up with desiccant packs just in case I have a problem with them down the road.

    Hiro said I have 7 days to return it if I have any problems, is that a sufficient amount of time to see if I have a bad screen or not.

    He said that he has sold one other with no signs of problems so far. I know I should trust him right off the bat but since I got screwed out of a pachinko from SlotPachinko.com (sent me a bad Indy) I'm just worry about transactions now.

    They're driving distance though, so it's a matter of "I knows where ya live!"

    I haven't had any problems with my Popeye, and it is from the same manufacturer.

    I wonder if the transformer has anything to do with the failure. Mine has a true 120v US transformer installed in it. Some may have a 100v transformer installed which will work in the US, but may cause an over voltage problem on the output side. This means at 120v your machine would be receiving more than the 24v it's rated at for normal operation. This could cause the components in your machine to breakdown prematurely, and fail.

    My machine was purchased from tokenslot.com and came this way.

    My Club Rodeo had a 100v transformer installed in it, and was causing a high pitched squeal in the electronics. I replaced it with a true 120v transformer and the noise went away.

    Just a bad run of a single game. I've heard so far it's only the Gamera that does it.

    I have to say that Hiro with CF Exports is one of the nicest and most professional dealers I have ever met. He sent me home with a top of the line Indy Pachinko; finally, I get the working machine I've always wanted.

    The whole thing looks like it was just cleaned, the brand new transformer is top notch and he added two variable resistors at no extra cost. The machine even came with a protective outlet plug cap and sticky pads on the resistors' bottoms (so they wouldn't dangle or get loose).

    Hiro also brought over a small power converter (a household current outlet that you plug into your car's cigarette liter), so I could see a test run at his mini warehouse in La Puente (keeps his inventory wrapped in a public storage unit).

    Bottom line:

    He considerably beat slot-pachino.com's price on the Indy, professionally installed extras and included twice as many balls in the deal.

    Hiro even loaded it into my Honda Element for me!

    And all of this under a 7 day warranty.

    If you live in Los Angeles and are looking for a great guy to do business with then CF Exports is the only company to do business with.

    Thanks again to fronzdan for sending me. Now I can actually enjoy my new toy.

    Here's their flyer:

    Sorry for reviving an old thread, but just got my hands on one of these and its been changed out with vegas stickers. I can see that the back lighting is there but there is no display. I would really like to get this machine back to original, any advice?
