    Default Popeye Pachislo rebooting problem when sitting in idle

    hi all can anyone give me some advice on what's wrong with this Pachislo Popeye fruit machine when you first switch on it shows the E1 error and keeps rebooting, I have reset with the key which removes the error and it plays ok apart from the right-hand reel light is out, but plays like normal, but after 5mins of sitting in idle it starts to reboot itself over and over, can anyone tell me is there a battery on one of the boards somewhere, I have disconnected all the cables and cleaned them, and I have removed the LED board from the right-hand reel and the LEDs are all good, can anyone give any advice on what to do next with this machine, thanks for any advice Paul south coast UK, many thanks for letting me join your group, i have check the caps inside the power supplies all seem to look good no bulging<span style="background-color: rgb(36, 37, 38);"><font color="#e4e6eb" face="Segoe UI Historic, Segoe UI, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif"><span style="font-size: 14px; white-space: pre-wrap;">

    What sort of transformer are you using. Having an underrated transformer can cause the voltage to drop out causing the machine to reset.

    apparently the machine work perfect before it went into storage i was wondering if i should change the capacitors in the PS even though they dont look like there leaking, it must be a drop in power to make it reboot but does not explain the right hand reel light not working

    Well before changing anything. I would measure your incoming and out going voltages.
