    Default New Member - Need Help in Identifying My Pachinko Machine and Solving a Problem

    Hi - I am a new member of this forum, although I have owned both a Pachinko and a Pachislo machine for many years. I have the Pachinko machine pictured below, and am having an issue with the video screen in the center of the playfield "rolling". For those of you who remember when tube TVs had a 'vertical hold' adjustment, it appears to need something like that. The machine works perfectly well other than that.

    Any information on identifying model, age, etc. of the machine, and any suggestions for solving the issue with the screen, will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Ron

    It’s a Sankyo... haha. The name is probably in the upper right corner near the odds. 95’ model or so I reckon’, I don’t see it listed on Sankyo’s model history. Unless it’s the mysterious “NO IMAGE” 95 model?? Must be very rare

    Sorry, no idea about the screen issue. Did it start recently or has it been this way a while? A video might help.

    Sankyo used that frame from 1994-1999. But can't find it on the Sankyo website

    might be because yours has a different model suffix from the ones pictures, so different artwork.

    oh...as above

    You guys need to look harder Artwork can be different, but plastic features generally the same. Looked for the round feature just above the screen. Also copy and pasting the 'no image' names into a google image search will give you pictures of those.

    Thanks for the prompt reply. My machine isn't exactly like any in the catalog on the website you sent, but looks most like 1997.7, but with a different playfield and colors. I have attached another image showing the upper right hand IMG_0050.jpgarea of the field showing the phrase :5&13" plus two gold stars. Does that add any useful information?

    I tried to add a short video showing the screen 'rolling' situation but the website wouldn't let me upload it (probably even though it is only a few seconds, it is over 3 megs in size). If there is any other way to send it, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    Compirate identifies my machine as a 1997 Fever Pistol Daimyo GP. That helps, thank you! Is anyone aware of a repair facility or parts source I can contact about the video screen 'rolling' issue?

    Screen issue started a few months ago. I've had the machine for probably 15 years, and it worked fine until then. The CRT appears to be a unit connected in the back of the machine by clamps and two wiring harnesses (one small and one large) on the side and back. Is it possible that there is a "vertical hold" adjustment on it somewhere? If not, does anyone know of a source for replacement parts? I have been unable to post even a short video, sorry.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    You normally have 2 options for the video screen in these older Sankyo's. The Casio CMV54NT04P or the Sharp LM6Q401. I remember there being an adjustment on the back, but I believe it is for the contrast.

    You can try unplugging, cleaning with some CRC cleaner, and reconnecting to see if solves your problem.

    I had to replace one not too long ago, and the best/cheapest place to order was from AliExpress. I tried ordering one from ebay, but the one I received was worse than what I took out.

    Would I do another replacement? For the cost, probably not, but if you love the machine then it's what you do.

    Good Luck!

    The screen on this one is a CRT. More than likely a capacitor or two has gone bad.

    Followup on several replies I have gotten:
    -Compirate is correct - my machine is a 1997 Fever Pistol Daimyo GP. I was able to confirm using Google translate and the sticker on the back of the unit. Thanks!
    -Ikaria;s suggestion to use CRC to clean contacts was a good one, but didn't solve the problem. :-( Appreciate the suggestion!
    -Looks like Compirate is probably right about the bad capacitors.

    All of the feedback and suggestions has been greatly appreciated. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good parts and/or repair source?

    Thanks and Happy 2020 to all.

    Ron
