    Cool Hello from Palm Beach

    Glad to find this forum. I've owned a Heiwa Las Vegas bubble, Inoki boxer theme Pachislo machine with video for about 10 years. It is in pristine condition, and I don't use it very often. Lately I've been playing on it and it is great fun!!!! I bought about 2000 tokens for it when I purchased it so I can play and play and play. I have one issue with it. The volume is way too loud and I can not find a volume control switch. Can anybody assist? I can post pictures if necessary. Thanks a lot.....Ted

    Well without being to blunt and honest. The easiest way is to cut into the wiring and fit a variable resistor for some sort into the wires to the speaker. There are numerous ways of doing that.

    Oh and welcome aboard

    Thanks guys. So the bottom line is there is no volume control. Ok, not sure I want to start cutting wires so maybe I'll just wear ear plugs......lol

    Sometimes there is one or more dip or sliding switches located somewhere on the inside of the door but they do little to lower the volume. Some of my newer models have volume turning knobs but also do little to change from loud, louder, and ear splitting. Not so good for living in an apartment building.

    Hey Lefty.

    Welcome.

    I have 5 pachislots and almost all of them have a volume switch somewhere on the inside door. Usually by the speakers. Have you played around with any of them? Sometimes they area knob and sometimes they are a switch with 3 or more settings
    Ill walk you through it as best I can.
