    Default 2014 Pachinko Machine wonít fire balls

    Hi all! Ok so I powered up my new machine. Itís a Kinnikuman 2014 pachinko machine (pic attached) I have balls in the back hopper and balls in the front. I turn the knob and nothing. I feel like I just need to turn something on in the settings or flick a switch idk lol. Any direction or help will be greatly appreciated. My 2009 Kinnikuman machine was load and play but this one is a lot beefier so Iím not sure. Thanks!

    Does the machine power up and run through the boot sequence? If it does and it is just the shooter that isn't working, make sure your dongle is well seated. The shooter will not work if the dongle is loose or missing.

    Hi thanks! Yes it boots up fine and runs through the start up sequence. I’m able to mess with some setting and watch a step by step video on how to play lol (in Japanese of course). This dongle you speak of… where is it and what does it look like? Sorry for the newb question but I only have 1 other modern machine and I never had to do anything with its dongle.

    K actually did some Googling and saw what a dongle is. I’ll have to check mine and even see if it has one. More than likely this is the reason. If it’s missing it looks like I can buy one that gives that real Pachinko feel like in Japan or it can be as little as a diode capacitor and a resistor. Either way I’ll check it out and report back thank you again!

    Was able to check my new machine and it is missing it lol. I can see my original machine has one so maybe I’ll swap them just to test before I make or buy one.

    I can mail one to you for $5, most of which is the shipping cost, if you don't want to make one or spend much. I'll throw in a door key with the dongle.

    I concur on the daverob dongle purchase suggestion. I recently purchased one for my machine and it is REALLY FUN to use the ball loan buttons during game play.

    I really appreciate that! But save it for someone else that might need it more. I have a key and I can make a temporary dongle since I have all the components already. Definitely might get the DaveRob dongles though. Always need present ideas lol
