i bought a luxor casino maygay for £20 it had the dreaded 6.0 met
error so i cleaned the battery area as it had leaked and snipped it out
and wired it up away from the board then still had error then twigged
its probs because the guy before was a donut and cut the meters off i
just connected all the wires togeather the 4 blues and 1 white then hey
presto worked reconised coins put them in the right place played
properly but wont pay out and tested everything in test mode hopper
still dosnt work however when i put my hand in and press the button in
the hopper that registers the coins exiting the hopper, the machine

to do with the meters not wired correctly?

If The Machine Is Picking Up Coins Are Exiting (The Opto Works) But Could be A Dodgy Connection/Damaged Motor (Motor Pcb)

I Would Recommend Checking All The Wiring Is Complete & Good (keeping In Mind As You Mentioned A Wally Had It Previously & Cut Wires) 

&Check All Fuses & If That Dont Resolve It Buy A Hopper/Motor Assembly From  Ebay For Around £5  (This Will Confirm All is Well) 

Have You Tryed To Dump Hopper ?  What Do It Do ?

Is It Giving You Errors Or Is It Purely Just Not Spitting Coins Out 

I Would Exspect It To Give You An Error Or Purely shout IOU (As Nothing Passes The Opto & Thinks Its Ran Out Of Coins)

let Us Know :)

That yellow circular part, is a ceramic (non-electrolytic) capacitor. Also it looks as though someone has used quite a bit of solder to attach it to the circuit board, compared to the factory soldered components. Also one leg of the diode above looks a bit manky. I'd also check the board for dry (soldered) joints with a test meter.
