You're doing well platau, you're asking us questions and then coming back to us with the answers. :lol:
Ha ha yeah funny about that.
What helped me were things that happened by accident but I took notice. Just needed the right clues and they jumped out in front of me. Pretty lucky this time.

Re: Help with Aristocrat Mayfair

The machine is working now. It had several levers jammed by old hard grease, a broken mains input socket and a broken fluro tombstone. Also many adjustments were needed. The green button (so I discovered) is for: During a payout, if the hopper becomes empty before completion of a pay, the hopper wil...

Re: Help with Aristocrat Mayfair

After removing the resistor I took it out in the sun with my loupe and I could see the first band is green so 56ohm will be the replacement. Would like to know what the circuit with that resistor in it actually does? Another question: What's the green button for? When the door is open, there's a mom...

Re: Help with Aristocrat Mayfair

Even though it is burnt the resistor still measures 56ohms, maybe that's the right replacement.

Re: Help with Aristocrat Mayfair

Thanks for the reply.
It's a 3 reel machine.
You can see the hopper type in one photo.
Click on the circuit board and you will see the fried resistor.

Hi all, I'm trying to repair an Inca Gold electronic machine. It had several levers that were bound up with old hard grease that I managed to free up and get the mechanics working. Now there are electrical issues. The only thing working is the top light, I should be able to get the door lights worki...

Re: Help needed desperately with Aristocrat Bobby Dazzler

I tend to have a photographic memory and while I was looking at it I suddenly had a flash back of the bush being level with the hub and not recessed at all. Well the powder coater reheated the part and pressed the bush through but short by 1.5mm. He couldn't get it to go any further. I managed to fi...

Re: Help needed desperately with Aristocrat

The old cabinet was severely water damaged. The previous owner had it under a car port and I'd say it copped a bit of rain hence the rusty chrome. The cabinet was carefully measured and copied in exact detail including the way the handle goes through the timber. All I have to do is get this handle f...

I was almost finished assembling my machine after having built a new cabinet and getting all of the chrome parts powder coated when I struck a problem. I couldn't get the handle to go together. I spent ages trying to figure out why the tube that goes through the bush from the handle to the inside of...
