    Default Sammy "Sands casino" Pachislo NEWB

    Hi I am new to this forum. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I recently bought at auction a Sammy Sands Pachislo machine. I cannot find any info on this machine anywhere. I think there are a number of problems. It kind of powers up. Lights come on, Fans come on, The coins in and bets LEDs do not come on. The hopper seems to run fine. The fuse was blown on the reel stop board. I had a spare Voltage regulator and capacitor and just replaced those because the machine is from around 84/85 time period. That didn't help and the fuse blew right away. The solenoid is not pulling down on the coin checker. My questions:

    1 Can anyone point me towards a service manual?
    2 There is a key switch on the outside of the cabinet that is in the off position. It is towards the top of the cabinet on the right hand side. Its not the same key as the front door and I do not have the key to this switch. Is this the power for the logic boards that would run the leds on the front?
    3 If it is a mother board issue can someone point me towards a supplier for an APEX 701Z?
    4 I do not have any tokens for this machine and cannot find out what size or type I need to purchase. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    In a past life I was an electronic tech for AV equipment. I don't have any fear replacing components. I am mostly looking for shortcuts from taking apart all the wiring and drawing my own schematic.

    Thank you in advance for any info you can provide.

    Jeff Sand.

    Thank you for the thread. That one looks like it has the same play but the glass is different. The only thing I have found so far on this one is it is listed in the Pachislo database and I found a reel stop board on ebay. no luck finding any reference to that mother board.

    Hello Michigansand ,

    No response for my previous message ? Maybe you can help me for another problem ?

    Is it possible for you to open your APEX 701Z because i have 2 wire on DSG on the top to the left which are cut and i don't know where they go !!!

    I put a picture for a better understanding .

    I only have you to help me, this machine seems untraceable otherwise.

    I hope you'll can help me .

    Thanks a lot .

    Hello, I managed to repair the machine. it works entirely. If you want michigansand, I can help you fix yours. First, you have to change the capacitor C10 and the 5volts TA78L regulator. You also change the 1A fuse.

    Glad you got it working! Did you figure out where to two wires that were cut went to on the board?

    So, no, the wires are going nowhere.
    I don't know why they were there !!!
    I unsoldered them and it works.
