It would be nice to know what the problem was. I had on old "Status" video poker machine (look it up here... LONG thread as well). I was about to give up and sell after leaving it sit covered for a month. Another NLG member posted a suggestion for me to look again at my mpu. So, for the zillionth time I looked, but this time I decided to "feel it out." There were 3 or 4 voltage regulators with the heat sink on them. All were warm, except for one! I checked the voltage in, which was 12vdc. It was supposed to have 5 on the output but it measured 0. I drove to my local electronics store, found the proper part and replaced the other. Switched on the power and ... got a deck of cards and a working machine, once I adjusted the video settings.
Soooooooooooooooo food for thought in case you don't sell it.

Well my reply just made your thread TEN pages long.  Keep the machine! Keep the machine!  :hissyfit:

I've had a CEI here for about 6 months now. It has a bad picture, all washed out and shifted to one side. I recently was doing a repair on one similar to mine. I pulled my monitor assembly out and put it in the repair job to see if my problem moved with the monitor, and it did. So now I knows problem lays in the CRT chassis. I'll give it the once over for any obvious problem, if none seen ill try new caps. I hate giving up on a machine. Sometimes the best thing to do is walk away from it for a while and clear your head..
Please remember to make a donation to NLG for mine/our help in repairing your machines problem.. Your donations help keep this sight on line.
And remember...
If it's jammed, force it.. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyways...

I know I will probably regret it, but the guy is suppose to be here within an hour for pickup...

Ok, so the machine is sold and out the door, BUT, he will test the machine with his mpu and let me know the results over the next week or two when he gets around to testing it. I'll update everyone then. He may end up just keeping the machine I sold him with the swapped game board.


Sorry if anyone out there is feeling let down but at least there will be one good machine out of the two at the end of it all.

So if you had only one good kidney, would you sell it? That way there would also be one good machine. :rotfl:
Kidding!
Keep us posted if you find out. I hope the new owner will join NLG and try fixing it !  :applause:
