    Default My ball shooter isnít working

    I am the owner of a Sankyo big-slot. Every part of it works except for the ball shooter. It wont move the shooter arm. I have a dongle and I think it works because I am able to dispense balls. I have no clue what to do to fix it.

    and your hand is touching that metal ring and your not pressing that little pause button on the left?

    Putting my hand on the metal ring didnít change anything. The handle turns and something spins in the back too, but the lever wont move. The thing spinning in the back is a hexagon surrounded by a white circle.

    If you say that you can hear the motor turn. Are you getting a regular thud every second?

    Could be a damages cam on the shooter motor. Or balls not getting to the shooter hammer.

    Balls are getting to the shooter arm because I can manually pull it back and fore a ball. I cannot hear the motor turn. Where would I replace it if necessary?

    and the dongle is firmly plugged in to that big old printer looking port right?

    I have a Fuji machine that is sensitive and i have to squeeze the handle firmly or it wont shoot. firm squeeze while turning the rotating part right and making sure your not pressing the paus with your thumb. can you take a picture of the handle and upload it?

    well looks like the cover is missing and yes that looks like a Dave Rob card emulator. on the back it will have a slot for the card reader. Mine do work without a reader plugged in. so yes it should shoot balls. on mine the pause is small I cant tell on yours make sure thats not stuck. It will prevent balls from shooting.

    you can see if you can find a donor frame to get one from. Yahoo.jp or similar. unless you can find one local youll prob need to import it from Japan.

    Or see if anyone can get a spare frame and import it for you.

    anyone else have any suggestions?

    The motor has started working again, but the wire in the handle doesnít ground it. For it to run I have to put my hand on the metal bit and on the motor.

    Glad itís fixed too! For reference, games with the metal ring on the shooter knob always require hand contact in order for it to fire.
