    Definitely the newer ones, it's hit and miss whether it accepts them. Old £1 coins, 50p & 20p coins are fine. I've found a guy who's not far away from me to get the coin mech updated to the new £1 coins. Going to do that, replace the bulbs and then find someone who can solder so I can get the MPU battery fly connected to further it's lifespan. Cheers for all the help so far guys.

    Hold button was a loose connection into the hole so the outer button wasnt making contact with the wee black button. Also one of the spade connectors was off so put back in and light working now. I have a few bulbs out so will sort that but another issue seems to be the coin mechanism as it's not recognising 5p and 10p coins. It still only accepts old £1 coins so wondering if I should just update it and sort the issue at the same time?

    The left hold button seems to be faulty though as it's not responding when pressed for holds or nudges.

    Good news, the power supply was definitely faulty. It's powered up now 😁 VID-20201015-WA0005.mp4 VID-20201015-WA0007.mp4

    Ok, think I'm getting the hang of this. Just tried this and when brushing that 2nd pin it beeps and the values are between 0.6 & 0.7. Also retried the first ones and when brushing on it it beeps and is around 0.5 & 0.6. Hope that's about right?

    Thanks mate, will give that a try probably tomorrow now. Out of interest what are the blue bits with numbers for as one of the small white switches is out of position compared to the rest on mine?

    Also noticed for the first time when switching the power off the display does this VID_20201011_121830.mp4

    Took the MPU out to get closer pics if the battery on it for MattyL. Also some pics of the underneath including a close up of the battery points from below as well. I've also tried the multimeter and if I'm using it correctly then I can get it to buzz touching those points but the number starts high then decreases to 0.001. Been a while since I've used one but this is the setting I was recommended to put it on in the pic below.

    Managed to source a PSU which should be here by end of the week. I took a video of mine powered up and definitely doesn't sound right, do you agree? Apologies about the kids in the background :😄 VID_20201010_114235.mp4

    Thanks Matty, I'll see if I can source a PSU, will give you a shout about testing the board. I'll get the board off the machine and get closer up pics as well after testing with a multimeter that I'll need to borrow first

    Seen some MPU boards on eBay not far away from me but untested and showing signs of battery leak. Don't see any PSUs available anywhere so think I'm defeated before even starting. Appreciate the answers and advise, what brand would you recommend as I'll go for a working one I think now?

    I was hoping you wouldn't say that lol Are the lights on the PSU that aren't lit related to possible MPU being faulty or is that likely a separate PSU fault as well? Sorry, I'm a complete novice at this but willing to learn quickly. Worse case I'll get rid and buy a known working one. Cheers

    I've taken a few, hopefully the close ups of the battery are clear enough. Thanks

    Thanks for the quick replies, Assuming then it could be both the MPU and PSU that are faulty? Looking at the battery it doesn't look likes it's leaked. Not really thought about a spending limit tbh, I suppose if it cost up to roughly the same to buy one working I'd be comfortable with that.
  15. Hi All, Newbie from Glasgow who has just joined after picking up a free Simpsons Beer Guide Maygay machine today which has a fault. Powers up but only light on the outside is at the bottom left flashing red with a low annoying speaker sound. No other lights, display or reel movement as if it's completely dead. If I open it up there are some LEDs lit on the MPU, PSU and some other boards but not all of the expected ones are on. Got pics below of the various boards and lights, I'm thinking PSU fault from what I've read but hoping you guys can help me and point me in the right direction on what to do or replace? Cheers
