HELP WITH SUMMIT COIN MACHINE

Postby ROB » Sat Dec 23, 2006 9:28 pm

If someone could help me with a summit coin video machine it would be very much appreciated. I have a summit coin video poker with a ferguson monitor. The game works fine except that the characters are all facing backwards. I swapped the monitor with another one and the characters are normal again. I am trying to determine if the problem is in the video processing board or the monitor board itself. Each letter is flipped and the cards as well. Anyone with experience on these? Thank you in advance.

Sorry Bob but you must understand we're too old fashioned here to know about these new fangled video machines. Most of us live in thatched cottages with outside loos and our main entertainment apart from mechanical slot machines is a rousing chorus gathered 'round the piano down at the old Bull and Bush.

I suggest you try some more with-it forum like http://www.retro-trader.com/forum/
or http://www.retro-games.net/forum/

I am afraid I cannot help you with your plumbing problem. But I can give you 10 out of 10 for your imaginative use of apostrophes. With creative skills like this, why bother with your own plumbing?

DON'T DO IT!

I once tried to fit metric radiators onto my imperial heating system, and it doesn't work. The reason is an imperial boiler works on British Thermal Units whilst metric boilers give out joules. The two systems are incompatible so the reception was awful, the bedrooms weren't any better either.
You need an adaptor because ..........
Put simply, one British Thermal Unit [Btu] is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of
1 pound [ lb.] of water 1 degree Fahrenheit.
The Fifth International Conference on the Properties of Steam (London, July 1956) defined the International Table calorie as 4.1868 joule.
Therefore the exact conversion factor for the International Table British thermal unit (Btu) is 1.05505585262 kJ.
The thermochemical Btu is based on the thermochemical calorie which equals 4.184 joule exactly.
So until the water companies start selling water by the pound instead of the gallon you'll never be able to convert your radiators.

Hope this helped.
