    Default Identifying and Connecting counter to lumina

    Hi, today I bought this counter, but inmediately I saw the connectors and thought I need help with this.

    Does anyone know what counter this is, and is is suitable for my Star Wars (R2D2) pachinko machine (Sankyo Lumina)?
    If it is, can someone gelp me get this installed?

    Posting pictures ofcourse.
    it has a bunch of thick wires, with 1 male and 1 female connector, which I think is fot power supply.
    2 sets of thinner wires, 1 with 6 pins male and female connector, and the other with 4 pins male and female connector.
    3 sets of thin wires with 2 female and 1 male connector. 2 of them are labled.

    Hopefully connecting it soon..

    the multipin plugs (4 and 6 way) Male and female are for syncing counters together.
    the 2 pin plugs in the second to last picture are probalby the right ones. The label looks like it says ootari (Sorry I haven't reinstalled my Japanese keyboard settings since windows 10 packed up on me)

    Daverob did a pretty good guide here.

    If I remember correctly the Lumina terminals are 3,4 and 5. But i could be wrong. There are various old threads regarding the Lumina frame and data counters.

    That counter will work on your Pachinko

    Many of those wires can be ignored, you will need to give the counter 24V as well. That is usually a red/yellow wire pair.

    Then there should be 3 male or female plugs that will be the Big hit(fever), ball in pocket, and battle mode.

    Once the counter has power... you can experiment with shorting the pins to figure out what each one does

    I've connected it today, and the counter works, but couldn't figure out which connector goes where on cn3, 4 and 5
    I just installed a good enough translator on my phone and it translated the black and white wires with the red text label wich says magnet contact output. The completely white wires with black text label was translated to jackpot contact output.
    haven't connected that one yet because of the male connector. The brown and black is still unknown to me.
    I have tried the female connectors at all 3 cn spots but didn't notice anything on the counter.

    Try this quick guide for frame and cel

    http://www.pachitalk.com/forums/pach...ina-frame.html

    The counter will only respond when you get fever or start pocket hits. Also as mentioned before. You need to connect it to a 24vac supply.

    A new update after a while..
    I think I know which one goes where, but think the counter is now functioning properly.
    I tried testing the connectors by shorting them
    Only 1 responded was the black and white one.
    it made the red leds on both ends go on.
    other than that, nothing is happening to numbers or lights

    I think black and brown is start, all white ooatari and black and white
    I think I should contact the seller and ask for replacement
