  1. It looks like the alarm is for the note acceptor missing and not the coin mech?

    It turned out that the power supply was causing RAM corruption on power-down so I replaced all of the electrolytics and the IEC mains filter... Old vs new mains filters. An exploded Rifa hiding inside the old filter!! Old electrolytics. New electrolytics. Panasonic and nichicon, no penny pinching here! All done! No more RAM corruption! For now, anyway...🤞

    50 credits worth of gameplay, taken just before stripping all those ICs off the board!

    I've got a card flipper unit I saved many years ago from when Arcadia, Ryde scrapped their Flip A Note. It's a stepper with a single opto. It starts with a blank card and then repeats 1 to 9 seven times. The opto is triggered on the 9 card just before the blank card. I'll post some pics later.

    More progress! I've sorted out the worst of the battery damage but there's still loads of logic ICs to replace on the bottom right corner. Still, she's working again for now, complete with a coin cell backup battery solution!
