    Default Help! Need to find one of the pachislo power cords somewhere! Please see pic!

    Hi Folks- need an identical cord for one of our machines if anyone has one/knows where to find one. This specific machine is a Bisty model, but don't think this cord is OEM-specific. If anyone has any ideas, has one to sell, etc, or can point me in the right direction, I would be tremendously grateful. Thanks!

    I would shy away from a cord like that. The two-prong plug is just inviting a 110Vac surprise. As for the white connector, that looks very Japanese, and I am afraid might have to come from Japan, if someone does not have an extra. Is there any numbers or letters on the connector that could help identify it? Also, there are pachislo parts vendors who might have something like that. They will need to know what brand/type power supply it came from.

    Sorry I could not be of any more help.

    If you can get to the circuit board on which the connector is... uh... connected... you could unsolder it and then directly solder two wires into its place, and run those to the output of your 110-24v transformer. Eliminate the fancy-schmancy connector completely.
    Woof!

    If you measure the distance between the pins I am certain you can find one that will work, or you can simply buy a pack of pins like this and make up your own:

    Pololu - Female Crimp Pins for 0.1 Housings 100-Pack

    The part you need is called a "female pin connector" FYI.

    If this were my project and I wanted to do it in a practical/simple manner, I'd use a couple of crimp style "butt connectors", crimp my wire in and glue it to the pin. You will have a good enough contact electrically for a light.

    If you have a junk computer laying around, you can probably find some pin connectors in the innards that can be made to work .

    Hey Folks- I'm 'rebooting' my search for this specific cord for a BISTY Pachislot from aprox 2008/2009- "Saturday Night Fever " featuring John Travolta, whose likeness was licensed for the project. Anyways- if anyone has a lead for one of these cords, please let me know. I appreciate those of you who have given your advice on how to handle this from a DIY perspective, but I'm not tech-inclined to the extent where I could confidently accomplish this.

    Thanks in advance for any help and advice!

    Can you measure the distance between the pins? You most likely need that dimension to source this.
