    certainly looks like it (i did suspect that was an "S" and not a "5"...silly font!!)

    only 2 versions, a bi- and an uni-... so dunno what the extra 4BB is about.

    thanks a lot for that. wouldn't know how to search it myself.

    I think you find if it's Uni it has the U in it. If it's bipolar there is no Suffix (nil)
    good luck hunting

    don't forget to check out the list of compatible cels that work with that frame. Although they are getting harder to come by. I post them in the YJA when I see them at a good price.

    farnell doesn't mess about, i've received the transformer already. i will wire her up tonight, just have to make sure the wires are connected right for parallel. obviously i will check voltages on the multimeter before i plug the machine in.

    are there any other precautions i can take? or just go for it?

    Should be fine. If in doubt, post a picture of the transformer connections before switching on. Then we can check

    Hi pachitalk members
    i have a spare star wars desk top model for sale ...looks a bit like frankenstien ...complete with nuts and bolts which hold it all together I purchased this from James @ 5 play when he was selling up all of his pachinko stock ...which I bought most of the stock : )

    I can sell you my star wars spare parts ( this stuff is hard to get hold of ) to be honest I need the space in my flat

    I will sell my working star wars desktop model spare boards , LCD screen , power board ( that you blew up ) for say £ 100.00

    I paid around 300.00 pounds with delivery for my Star Wars pachinko full machine ...now I have quite few So paying 50.00 ? Sounds cheap !!!

    If you are interested let me know ok

    I did have a spare power board only but...I blew it up when I was tying to repair my Looney Tunes pachinko which is now working ...lessons learned don't try to make your own leads for start pockets etc ...etc as this creates smoke from the back of machine i blew up the sound board and my power board ...it's taken me over a year to find the correct part on Yahoo Japan which I have now sourced the correct parts ( easier to buy a complete machine then trying to buy parts )

    Hi vib ribbon ,
    did you replace the diode as recommended and check and replace all fuses on power board ...and your new transformer 240 v input. 24v output To machine

    Let us know how you get on ...you may have completely fried the power board hopefully nothing else is blown up

    Good Luck ok

    we have success!!

    i wired everything quickly together and powered on...and got nothing. then i realised the white power connector that goes into the fuse pcb wasn't on properly. plugged it in for good and it powered up!!

    my god. i remember people saying these machines are loud, but nothing prepared me for how loud it was gonna be. even though the volume control was on the lowest of the 3 settings.

    here's a video i did:



    i guess i now need to figure out how to put the pots into it to quieten it down by a factor of...10?

    in the words of huey lewis, "i'm afraid you're just too darn loud".

    and then, i need to figure out how to prevent the balls going everywhere. i looked up on the web of other people's star wars machines... why does mine have a huge opening at the bottom of the wooden cabinet?? i guess i need to get a bigger tray?

    hi, thanks for the welcome.

    do you have a spare diode knocking about that i can buy from you? i only need the 1 and would seem silly to get it from that webshop and have to pay £12 for p&p.

    lemme know? ta.

    If you pop open the front door but not the whole machine, you will see the 2 speakers, mine had pots fitted there. Or trace the wiring back to the 40pin pink connector from the cel and insert them there. In the front is better as they will be hidden.

    I used a Tupperware contain meant for bacon to catch my balls till I built a cabinet with ball paths.
    Also worthwhile checking eBay for the diode as you can sometimes get components there with a slightly higher purchase price but with free or cheap shipping.

    turn the key to the left to just open the glass part of the door, you can put a sock or something else in each speaker opening for the time being to quiet it down

    to catch the balls in back, I use empty baby wipe tubs, some people use tupperware

    Yours has that huge opening because it's actually been put into a cabinet / case.

    A lot of pachinkos just have 2 planks of wood screwed to the bottom for feet. (most of mine are like that) and are open at the back.

    Steve / 777Heaven (used to be UK importer) used to supply the Star Wars with a plain MDF cabinet as an extra when you bought them. (I bought mine that way but ended up putting it in a homemade wall mount cabinet instead)

    ha! didn't know that. cheers for the tip! now i can reach some sticker residue on the glass and clean it off.

    so...i guess i can just snip the red and white wires and solder on a potentiometer? anyone know off the top of their head what range? thanks ever so much, am learning soooo much.

    500-1000 ohms with a rating of 1watt . I used the 20 turn cermet pots, the cheap ones can burn out the carbon brushes with ease.

    Might work as long as you leave the switch on the back in its lowest setting.

    I would say. What does the display and buttons on the front do

    Dr Ünkenclam sells balls in the UK, or they sometimes appear on eBay.
