Hi All,


Brand new to the group and hello to everyone,  I am an I.T engineer that has always had a love of Fruit Machines,  I have never had the time or money to indulge my passion although recently I acquired my first “project” and am looking forward to the journey J  I now have a Bell “Diamond Mine” machine with a Scorpion 5 Board,  (This came with a second Board as well)


1st Board Completely dead with signs of the “Magic Smoke” on it so swapped it for the second one and although I got the full set of green light,  I get  a red flashing light and slight sound from the speaker but nothing else ..I have done some research and in both case it appears that the battery has leaked on to the board (which I have learnt is very common)


Would anybody like these two older boards for parts etc and could anyone point me the right direction for a replacement board (I see a few on EBay)  but wondered if there was a better place to go?


Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Nice to see you here. My nickname I have finished is referring to when I finished college. I have also given up gambling on high steaks, all emulations for me now coin and note effects work on MFME now! I wish I had room for a fruity here in my poxy little home with a poxy shed and outside toilet, but it's OK as I have one of those fake ones with a savings bank from B & M shop. Kind regards, enjoy your stay here, from Tom Grant.
