CEI Casino Poker 906 111 turbo + gameboard
« on: September 25, 2016, 07:52:03 PM »
Just got a CEI Casino Poker and it has problems. I pulled out the main board and sprayed contact cleaner on the board contacts and cleaned them. Put the board back in and still didn't work properly. The main board say it is a 906 111 Turbo + gameboard. Side tag says  M - 4492, DOM  4-3-91. The hold cancel buttons on the front allow moving around within some of the menu functions. It will just randomly take off and go to anther screen on it's own. The video has a problem. The micro switch buttons inside, menu, hand pay, error reset are very sticky and not sure if they function properly. Not sure if the mother board is causing the bad video or if both the video and mother board have problems. Visually examining the boards there doesn't appear to be any glaring problems with components. Looking for some help on where to begin. I have another CEI Casino Poker working but it has a 904 gameboard. Don't have another working machine like this to swap boards out with. Attaching some pictures. If someone can be of assistance I would appreciate it. Thanks

We're you the person looking for the door latch for the CEI about a year ago? I finally found my spare door with the lock and latching lever. I do have a few CEI parts but no 906 boards..

Yah, that's me. Need the door latch mechanism that slides up and down and other related parts. Bought this machine originally to cannibalize but now decided to see if I can get it running. What exactly do you have?

While you're waiting for those parts, I'd carefully clean each one of those sticky switches. That might explain any jumping around especially if they're making intermittent contact, when you don't want them to!

A lot of these poker machines will not operate correctly if the buttons stick. That the first thing I check and repair.

I pretty much have a complete door. It has the sliding latch, and mounting hardware for it. I think its missing one screw and guide bushing, but the other parts hold it secure. I believe it has the door lock with cam and key if I have not miss placed that.

I have a background in electronics. On my other CEI machine (904) the little micro switches move freely in and out. They appear to be momentary contact switches that are spring loaded underneath the larger red buttons. I have never attempted to clean one before just replaced them. These seem not to operate at all, sort of froze in position, Good point, that is why my function seems to randomly jump around. I'll open up the box they are mounted in remove them and attempt to get them working. Spray some contact cleaner on them? Then test them for proper operation. Are these just single pole momentary contact switches?  Thanks for the tip.

The switches are standard NO/NC with the common tab.. What needs to be addressed are the buttons them self not the switches.. You need to take then apart and clean the dirt, pop, and other nasty stuff that gots inside between the button and housing. I usually take them apart and soak them in a hot water bath with the cleaner of your choice. A tooth brush and Q-Tips works wonders to clean them.

As posted the 3 micro switches are 3 pin normally open, normally closed. Only uses the normally open pins. Unsoldered and removed the 3 switches. Menu was stuck in on position, hand pay was stuck in off position and error reset sort of worked. Shot some contact cleaner down around the shaft of the switches didn't do much. So put a couple of shots of WD-40 down around the shafts and worked the switch. That did the trick, checked them for continuity and they work great. Have not put them back in yet. Will post after I do. Never worked on one of these machines before. Again thanks for the tip.

Put 3 micro switches back in machine. Prior to cleaning and getting the switches working again, had different video screens randomly appear including the menu screens occasionally, along with hold/cancel buttons lighting up.

Now I have 3 different video screens in a repeating endless loop. (attached are photos) Not sure how to access the menu functions with buttons on front of machine.

Is this possibly the normal mode for the machine when sitting idle waiting for someone to play it? Without any credits on the machine and now ready to accept coins or bills? (the video in all the screens clearly has some issues and needs to be repaired). It has a bill acceptor and quarter slot. Neither will  add credits when bill is put in, coins just drop out into the tray. Is my only problem now (besides the video) is to somehow get credits on the machine? Any suggestions on how to get credits on machine, if that is my problem at this point?

You need to make your picture pixels smaller to post here.. It sounds like you might have a stuck test or menu button inside the machine..

Attached is a picture of my working 904. No credits, it displays last hand played and flashes insert coin, waiting for the next player. That is what this non-working 906 should like also? Thanks.

There shouldn't be any "weirdness" in idle mode.
Have you checked to make sure all the chips are properly seated in the MPU board?? Seems like I'm posting this everywhere but it's been an issue on many occasions.
If all else fails, I have a spare tested/working 906 III turbo board. PM me if you're interested.

The 906 should look similar but the main menu will list available games. It should look something like this (other than "mux error").
Were you able to check your connections and IC's?

In idle position looks like last hand played. I attached previously, above are 3 different video screens which currently repeat in an endless loop on mine. Won't be able to reseat the IC chips for a few days, my 4 grandkids are here for the weekend. The IC chip contacts can lose continuity over years of time similar closed relay contacts on a pinball machine. I'll carefully remove them and clean the contacts on the chips and the sockets as best as possible then reseat them. Thanks for input.

Let us know what you find out with the chips.

Sorry about the delay from last post. Decided to order IC tweezers online for 96 cents from China, weeks to arrive. Didn't want to chance using a screw driver and damaging the IC chips or sockets or possibly breaking the brittle circuit board.

One at a time removed and reseated all the large chips, did not remove the small chips, probably are power supply related and that worked. Put the board back in and turned on the power. The machine came up with good video and 5 function options. The IC chips contacts after sitting in the sockets for decades have oxidized just removing them and putting them back in cleaned them enough to make contact. My thanks to the suggestion on this thread for reseating them. I tried the 5 functions entering them by pressing the last 2 buttons on the machine. When I got into the last one I think "birth of game" it went into a diagnostics? and then said to press menu? The went to opening screen and I put in 5 quarters, dealt hand, saved a king and got 2 more for 3 and it gave me 15 credits. So it seems to work fine. My wife is now playing it feeding in quarters and has 435 credits on it. The horizontal and vertical size are a little large, I assume there are thumb wheel adjustments for that.

Is there any printed information available or can someone let me know how to make adjustments in the menu screens with the hold/cancel buttons?  My other CEI will not allow you to continue putting in quarters when you have credits they must be played. I assume it is an adjustment. My IGT stops at 1,000 credits. Photo of machine attached.

Good job on getting it running. Flaky connections on decades-old sockets can definitely cause a problem. Besides reseating the chips sometimes the ic legs can be carefully cleaned with a soft pencil eraser to remove the oxidation on them. This is a delicate task, don't want to bend or break the ic leg. I try to make a backup copy of the eprom or at least the .bin file before doing this, just in case.

There are quite a few manuals and documents for the Cal Omega/CEI machines in the NLG library but I don't know if any of them are for your particular machine. Manuals for this slot machine are sometimes of a general nature and don't always have all the details you'd like to have. To access the NLG library I think you'd need to make a contribution, big or small, to the NLG website. But in my opinion it is worth it for all the help and support the kind and knowledgeable people here provide, even if you don't get anything from the library.

NLG library:

Also, coinslots.com has a lot of manuals for older machines:
