casino poker manuals/schematics?
« on: June 25, 2014, 05:35:03 PM »

I am helping a friend get a c.e.i. casino poker machine going and looking for manuals or schematics. it sounds like they are in the n.l.g. file system but i do not have access.
also wondering how easy it is to use a t.v. for a monitor for troubleshooting purposes. right now i'm at "which connector goes where?", there's broken wires,badly soldered repairs to boards, screen is badly burned-in with images,i'm really at square one with this and can use all the help i can get.

The model number on the tag is blank. but the game is casino poker. motherboard is labeled 909 rev D, the other board is labeled 904 rev A. has 4 chips labeled 8.91 A-D, a mfg date on omega chip is '83.

apparently a lot of people have tried to fix this machine in the past with no luck and by what i see may have ruined it.

I will take some photos and will most likely have a ton more questions later, but for now any literature would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to NLG, and to the CEI world! Your machine is well recognized here, and we will
be delighted to help in any way we can.

Your 904 "game board" and 909 "motherboard," are the very earliest of Cal Omega's
move into the gambling world from the arcade machines they had been building. Casino Poker
was their first, and most common, model.

Before you do anything else, please..
1. Tell specifically what does and does not work: is there anything at all on the screen? If nothing,
do you get game-playing sounds when a coin is inserted? What lights come on, etc etc.

2. Post photographs, inside and outside, and especially of any are that looks damaged or altered.

The reasons for this are:

1. Casino Poker was built into four different housing styles, and the wiring differs between them.
Even within a single housing style (like "Casino Mini," which looks like a small slot machine), there
are versions with 10 buttons on the front, and with 15!

2. Many, if not most, have cut/disconnected wiring on the front door, in the area of the coin acceptor.
These are to bypass one of several coin reject- or re-route provisions, for owners wanting to use slugs,
tokens, or foreign coins; or who did not want to dick with fine adjustments. Such wire hacking & whacking
may have nothing to do with your current problem, and trying to "fix it" usually just introduces other problems.

As for swapping screens, you cannot use a TV or computer monitor without special conversion boards
and wiring. Let's see if we can fix what you have. By the way, burn-in on these machines is rarely a
problem: they were designed such that the picture changes very little during play, so you are unlikely
to see any burn-in while it's running.

So, whip some details and pics on us, and let us have some fun helping you!
