    Default help for 1974 Nishijin model 4200 AKA model-B pachinko ABC lanes

    hello, i hope someone can help me. sometimes the jackpots work, sometimes they don't. when they don't, the seesaw thing at the back stays down and the jackpot ball goes to this shoot at the right bottom and just queues up and nothing happens. sometimes the jackpots work. What should i do?
    i have a video of the process if anyone wants to see it and can send photos if that would help

    any help appreciated!!

    thanks

    Hello and Welcome.

    Most often inconsistent payouts are due to dirty or sticky pivot points. Pictures are always helpful.

    Hi

    You may want to pull the plastic parts off and give them a good cleaning, because something is definitely sticking.

    Do you have enough balls in the machine? A pic or vid of the jackpot mechanism would help us to see where the hangup is.

    now of course it is working, but it is inconsistent. it also worked a few times yesterday. here is video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fycr6r9XHFg

    also in the ramp down from the bank of jackpot balls it is supposed to be 2 lanes.....but a little jam seems to make it one lane.....is that the issue? how to fix that? see picIMG_0265.jpg

    That ball jam will cause troubles. Both lanes must stay full.

    That appears to be the issue, only filling the jackpot half full.

    Looks like you are running rusty balls in your machine. They will not roll smoothly, and jam up your machine. Also not good for your play field.
    Gotta catch 'em all Pa-chink-o

    Hi

    I would start at the top with the ball tray and work your way down one section or piece at a time, the objective is to clean out as much dust, dirt, and grime as you can. Also clean the Pachinko Balls and then separate the rusty ones from the shiny ones.

    Number one rule about disassembling anything:

    LOTS OF PICTURES!

    So you know where it came from and where it goes and how it's supposed to look

    And another thing, don't lubricate anything. System is designed to work without it. Just collects dust.
