Inca Gold

Post by incagold »

I have an Inca Gold 5 cent machine 3 reel and I’m looking for mechanical and electrical information.
Thanks

Hi and welcome, there are not manuals as such for Aristocrats, although some parts and maintenance documents do exist for some, I have a few for early Aristocrats, but may not cover your machine. I am guessing you are in Aus and a lot will depend on whether your machine is a fully mechanical or part electronic as some of these contained hoppers and even boards and electronics.

Perhaps share pictures or mention what help you need, someone maybe able to help !!THUMBSX2!!

Thanks for your reply 👍🏼
I presume it is a mainly mechanical machine. I can kind of read and follow the wiring diagram in the back of the machine and it is mainly for main lights in the front, an optional light stack on the top, but then the 12v side after the transformer goes onto the connecting spades and then to a socket and then onto something else that I can’t read. Does this go to an electronic component that is missing? Also any pictures of complete mechanical workings would be great, I seem to be just missing a few springs maybe in a couple of places, I’m not sure.
Again thanks for your help

This photo is probably more detailed of what I want to know...
the first arrow no.1 does this have a spring that goes somewhere? And second arrow no.2 is there something missing from there? Seems to be a threaded screw hole?

The lever number 2 is a coin detector in the carousel. If no coin goes around in any slot, it locks the operation. No spring should be there, see below. The hole, is a pivot hole for another coin detector lever inside. See inside below one which should be there.

What are the issues you have?

In terms of electrics, I assume the lighting is mains voltage. Not sure what the transformer is for. Maybe any low voltage bulbs, like a light tower. There may be more electrics behind the panel, which is where they often mount them.

Thank you so much for your reply and help. The lights are mains voltage 240v and the transformer is 12volts. There is a magnetic switch in the money tray and a door switch which I presume are both meant to be in circuit on the 12v side. Both wires are cut to these switches. There isn’t any more wiring behind the panel, Mains power just comes in the back of the panel and into the ballast on the lights side and into the 240 side of the transformer and then out from the ballast to the lights. Do you have a wiring diagram in the back of yours also? Is it readable? I want to know what is after the “socket” in the diagram (I’ve circled in the photo what I’m not sure is meant to be there) I’m thinking it may switch the optional lighting stack in some sequence...???
Also is there any information on the pay out ratios of these machines and is it adjustable?

This was in the machine also. Does it have anything to do with it?

TF is that smart he's already answered your latest question with his previous reply...

If you look at the two images he posted, you will see that part at top left of both pictures. It diverts any second coin inserted, prior to the first coin being played, to the coin reject hole. As it's pivoted, the first coin inserted pushes the lower plate section backwards, thus pushing the top section forwards. The top section, in its now forward position blocks the path of any second coin and that second coin is then diverted (left), to the coin reject pathway.


Hope that helps.

It would have been clearer and simpler to draw a big red arrow on one of the pictures, but alas that
simple process is alien to me...

Strangely enough I've never had an Inca Gold until about six weeks ago.

Well that took me a little while to work how it fitted in and to find the little bracket and pin on the back that mounts it, but I got it in the end 👍🏼 Thanks for that!
You don’t happen to have a better photo of the wiring diagram or info on the electrical side of things do you?
Really appreciate everyone’s help 😀

I have to ask, have you tried the lights or is something missing as I can see the starters and ballast, which is all that is needed. Anyway, I could not get a clear picture of the inside of one of my machines as shown below, so taken copies of two manual pictures of Nevada’s, has wiring diagrams and pictures, hopefully clear enough. |/XX\|
