    Default Thinking of scrapping Satomi Computer PachinkoI

    100_1242.jpg100_1239.jpg100_1245.jpgIMAG0084.jpgIMG_0574.jpgI have a 1970's Satomi Computer Pachinko that I am thinking of scrapping. I've had it for 3-4 years, and I've never been able to get it to work correctly. At times, I've tripped a wire that caused the score to work or reset or such, but at this point, it seems more trouble than it's worth. It has been somewhat entertaining messing around with it, but it's time to move on (I think). Other than the broken "Pachinko" marquee that I'll probably keep, is there any aspects of the machine that would interest anyone from a parts standpoint?? Note: I have the ball tray; I just took it off to work on something. if there is interest in he parts, I'll likely just sell them and scrap the shell. Thanks in advance for any comments that you may have.

    I'm not addicted to Pachinkos. I can quit at any time. Did I tell you about the three machines that I have on the way?

    Are there wiring diagrams or schematics for these things? I'd take the whole thing if I was closer, if for no other reason than to try to draw them up.

    I wonder if any exist for the other basic unit like my "Electronic Computerized Pachinko". At least that is what they have on the front nameplate like this one in JACKSJE4's post several years ago.

    I think there is some crossover between the 2, but I have not seen a Nishijin A version so I could not say for sure.

    I didn't figure out the machine, just how to get the Satomi schematic. If I could find someone who graduated from ITT Technical school and was looking for a project for little pay, I'd be thrilled. just haven't come across that perfect person for the job....

    Extremely heavy machine; would cost a fortune to ship. I have perused Craigslist looking for an electronics expert who could figure it out for me (locally). Unfortunately, all of the so called experts have either declined or not responded to my inquiry of interest in their services. It's taking up space in my garage, and I simply don't have the skills or patience to mess around with it further. I'm making headway on my other computer pachinko, and I'm putting my time and interest into that project now. Unless some epiphany occurs, I'm probably going to begin dismantling it soon.

    It would be quite an undertaking to emulate all the inputs and outputs of the machine. And the problem(s) might not be on the boards.
