    Would this be for a sensor in the coin mechanism or a reel? Depending on your machine many have a main board with a light to come on when each sensor, button, etc... is engaged.

    If there is no indication led on the main board. You can see if the IR led in the sensor is working by pointing a digital camera at it and see if there is a glow coming from it. NOTE this doesn't work for all digital camera (I'm looking at you Apple) of course this will only prove the emitter is working and not the receiver. After this you either need to use a volt meter to measure the sensor output or just buy a new sensor. Either which you will need to know the sensor model or data sheet.
