    Default Need a place to start!

    Have need of help or direction for manuals of some kind. Have a machine and is missing parts
    , but hard to look if you don't know what they are. Wires are unplugged and don't know where they go! I'm not afraid of electronics at all. Over 10 years in the gaming industry and am an electronics technician. But is nice to know what you have before you start. Here is a picture and any help you can give would be great.
    Thanks in advance!

    Pics of the interior would be good.

    The name of the game is イブX made by Macy in 1994.

    Here's a video of what it's supposed to look like - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ej3fVxxWGIM

    Here's a Japanese site, explains a bit about the game, if you read Japanese.

    Could you get a clear picture of the upper right side of the front where the hole is? There's supposed to be a lock there, possibly a key switch, would be interested in what it says there.

    These are the only interior pics I could find so far:

    I can't see the reels, hopefully they aren't missing!
    I probably won't be much help. More vintage pachinko than pachislo. But I did want to you to pachitalk!
    Also pics of the inside would be a great help! That hole at the top is interesting. It does look like a lock of some kind was there. Maybe a keyed reset switch???

    Hole in the upper right is for a lock. Looks like someone not very skilled in removing it either. It is a two way key lock turn one way opens main door turn the other opens service door. Sorry noticed the picture I had take was with the reels out, they were on the bench beside the unit and they are intact. Thought I had pics of the inside will take some tomorrow. I am missing the hopper unit and looks like a board that was mounted to the inside right wall next to the reels to a plastic black mount. I have about 5 white connectors that are laying in the area.

    how about a best interior shot of the entire machine cabinet?

    Not sure what those loose ones go to.

    The way they are oriented in the cabinet I believe they go to a board that is missing to the right of the reels in the fourth picture I posted. Here is a shot of the whole interior though.

    Found a couple other interior pics, one from this game, the other from a different one - same maker.

    Some of those connectors may go to the battle counter board, if they had them then. What's behind the upper door above the reels?

    I'm guessing that you turned the camera sideways to make the machine fill the frame. When loaded into the computer it don't know which way you want it, and posts it the way the camera "should" be held. If so, you should be able to rotate them on your computer before you post them. I like the in and out counters! I don't know much about electronics...so not much help. If you can't find a hopper, it seems like there are coinless options...but a hopper is always better. There is a thread where a member bought and tested a coinless device bought on eBay and installed it and gave a review...or something like that.

    The upper door has lighting and a coin shoot for loading the hopper without having to open the main door. I think the board I am missing may be a stop reel board that mounts to the right of the reels. Will be an older style board with several white connectors on both side of board. I have located the proper hopper for this unit. Have tried powering up the machine and currently only get the body panel light and one red LED on the vertical plastic board that sits on top of the power supply. I can imagine that the stop reel board and hopper not being in the machine would prevent everything from coming on. I realize the game would not be playable without these parts but should pretty much power all up with lights and sound yes? My kingdom for a wiring schematic!!

    This is the stop reel board I am missing. Any ideas?
    Does anyone have schematics of this machine mainly power distribution?
    I currently only have fluorescents that come on and that is it except for one Red LED on main board.

    Ok I have acquired a stop reel board and a hopper for my machine. I have been tracing circuits and trying to figure this thing out. On power up I get insert medal light is flashing. Stop button light are off, start light is off, all bet lights are on to the left of reels. The , I believe, max bet button and cash out button I have tested and they work. The start reel knob has been tested and it works. The stop board keeps blowing fuse and has 43.6 volts at the fuse, that seems high! Led lights are lit up on all three reel stepper motors, but only have 7.5 volts at the connectors that go to each of the reels. Any ideas folks?

    would love some schematics if anyone has some or knows where I might locate some.
