Looking at it, it's some sort of voltage spike protection use, bit like a dummy diode you get on some laptops, which is designed to blow before anything else on the device, thus protecting the rest of the machine, with only a diode replacement needed to return the unit to full service.

The number on the main board is 910510-4 If that helps ?


Had a good look around and found nothing related to that board - but you could have a browse on the unidesa/cirsa site here: http://www.unidesa.c...on.php?clicar=1

it's in spanish so I hope you can understand it - pic of one of their mini range attached - looks like your cab to me.

Yea looked a bit lie that but I suppose the silver end could of burnt off?
And by what your saying it may go in the place of a diode?

And thanks captin haddock I'll have a look at that later and no I don't speak Spanish but google does!

i didnt notice how burnt that board is until i saw the photo and now i look at it thats not a symbol for a diode is it?

Just to update an old thread for reference..... seams that system boards of of say a max-a-million are NOT compatible with these compact style BGT machines.

Part code for the Max-A-Million style machines are 960606-5

 

Part code for the Mini Wild Cherry style machines are 910510-4

Oh yes, still on pre-steel coinage unfortunately.. Anyone know how to retrofit a replacement mech for a Azkoyen L6 at all, or at an outside chance, know of someone able to update such a mech?

Using a MARS, Coin Controls mecs etc, is just not feasible, so an equivalent Azkoyen at the minimum is needed.

Also unfortunately with mine, after a time of use, reels go out of sync, and inside the machine due to it's small size, it gets pretty warm, with the main fan sounding like a jet engine, so I think first need to sort the fan (Should be pretty easy, as I have a number of large 12v PC fans), and I think the PSU could use with recapping.

I'm going through this processs with mine now.

 

I have bought a newer X6 mech and am wiring it up to an Arduino microcontroller. I have this at a point where the new mech is acception coins and I can see which coin is inserted on my pc debug console.

 

The next step that I'll have a crack at this evening is sending the correct coin signals from the arduino to the machine, then it's all good. All I need to do (I think) is send a couple pulses down the correct coin signal lines whise monitoring the inhibit line. 

 

There is no direct mech replacement, __unlesss__ you can find someone who will program the coins to the correct pins. I tried euro coin, but missed the call from the engineer who was then on holiday so ended up with a regular X6 programmed mech.

 

On my wild cherry, the graphics say it accepts £2 coins, but none of the signal lines are for £2. I guess it's because I have a slightly older version of software in mine? 1.9 or something (I need to check). I am planning on pulsing the 50p line 4 times to simulate a £2 coin via 50p's being put into it. I can't do the £1 line as it would end up with the wrong hopper count.

 

It would be nice to connect a note reader up to the serial port on the arduino, but I have no idea what not readers are easy to interface to. Quite a number of years ago when I worked for Cromptons I wrote quite a bit of code that interfaced to CCtalk mechs and hoppers. Note readers weren't a things for us back in 2005!

 

I did have a crazy idea about making a board that intercepts the mech, display and hopper, then in theory I could halve the value of the coin in and payouts to increase the jackpot of the machine. That would me a heafty amount of work though then the graphics would beed upading too. I don't have the time for that at the moment. I would prefer to do that on something like a Las Vegas Six, £1 play £50 jackpot.

 

In summary: [X6 -> Arduuino -> BGT]

Hi @khards2

I am looking at my Wild Cherry too. I think there may be an easier way than using a microcontroller. Some questions you might be able to answer.

 

1 Do you have a tech doc for the Azkoyen L6?

 

2 I tried shorting ground to pin 4 to simulate a coin and it showed 5p but couldn't get any otheres to work.

 

3 What do you mean by monitoring the inhibit line? I just assume this was the inhibit line for all coins so grounding this would accept everything.

This is the pin diagram I was looking at, it's not the L6, tried to find one similar.
