Mini Sega not paying out

Hello everyone,

I’m new here! I just purchased a Mini Sega 6d in really good condition however since bringing it home and having lots of goes on it, it never pays out when I get a winning combination. The coin tube is full to the top and everything looks in place. I have no experience with these but willing to learn.

Has anyone have any advise or suggestions with this issue please ?

Thank you in advance.

Paul

Most likely a coin jam or the payout pin is not moving along the shaft and into the reels. These are a very complicated mech to strip even just to get to the coin tube. :(
If you take the mech out, and have a look what’s happening when you're playing, it may give you an idea.

Thanks for the fast reply. I see the two long pins thin rods one either side of the coin tube none of them move maybe due to a coin jam at the bottom. It’s not as if I can take it to my local shop to fix 😂. The shop I purchased it from says the guy that had it said it did pay out when he had it. The fact of the matter is that it’s not now 😭. They offered me a refund but the case is in really good condition and the other one I have seen has a lot of cosmetic damage and hooks broken off on the back door. But works fine apparently. A catch 22.

Take the machine out of the case and turn it upside down, all the coins will fall out. Then shine a torch down the tube if there's still a coin(s) down there then that's your problem.
Sometimes stuck coins within the slides may be freed by operating it while it's upside down as the slides are moved back in line with the tube.

Also there's no need to duplicate your post in different topics, we tend to read everything that's posted anyway. I shall delete your other one.

The one you're referring to with the damaged back door is actually mine I have for sale haha.
Try what bp says - turn it upside down, but I don’t think that’s going to be the problem. Also. no slides in these to jam up so it’s not a slide problem.

Thanks, I’ll try that. Noted in regards to duplicate post, I thought I initially posted in the wrong section.

Haha - really, I was contemplating on whether to buy yours off ebay or the one I did buy. Does your one pay out OK every time? I was gonna message you on ebay if you was willing to accept an offer.

OK, UPDATE: turning it upside down partly worked. I then saw a few coins jammed at the bottom and managed to release them. It now pays out. Only problem it pays out three coins only. Two cherries and a lemon and the three plums. The other one was two cherries and an orange which was correct. Any ideas on how to adjust the payout please?

Payout adjustment is by the part that looks like steps , and if you screw it up you will take ages to get it right again, tiny adjustments at a time until you get it right

Thanks for the advice I’ll try that once I have managed to sort out the coin slot mech it’s stuck in and won’t pull out argghh. Is there an easy way to just help release it back ?

Are you running it on the right coins?
