    Default Pachinko Repair Colorado Springs or Denver

    I just bought an Indiana Jones pachinko machine and everything on it works except the handle mechanism to get the balls going. I dont know how to even get into the mechanism to look at why it isnt working. From the back there are too many electronics covering it. I would love if someone could help me get it working again. Ive been trying to find someone for about a month and was told to ask here. Thanks so much!

    There's a 25pin DB connector on the back. Is anything plugged in to that? It's required for the shooter to work.

    The dongle that Compirate mentioned will need to be connnected in order for the mechanism to fire. Also make sure that when you have hold of the shooter knob you are making contact with the metal band on the knob, failure to do so will prevent use. You can also try opening the bottom of the frame and making sure nothing is jammed or gummed up.

    Yep. Start with the dongle. Even if you have to unplug it and plug it back in again. It might be in a small box, or a plug covered in hard glue. But no wires coming from it. Of course dongles do go bad as well.

    I highly suggest grabbing a CR adapter because it is necessary for shooting balls.

    Hello and welcome to the group

    Did you ever resolve this problem? Do you need pictures or able to post any of the back? We're here for you and several of us have this same machine to aid you if possible. If you need a dongle then I have a freebie for you.
