  1. Hi, I have literally just got my SP Ace Cash bowl up and running after some nasty battery damage in the last few weeks. I have about 3 duff main boards, and also I am sure I have V9 and V10 chips. I think the V10 is currently in my machne and V9 is spare. I added some high res photos to a previous post of the main boards. Let me know what you want and I'll see what I can do. Thanks
  2. Swtiched it on last night, then did a RAM clear using switch on PCB. 9102 error gone. Display says 0000 which I assume means OK.
  3. Thanks for that, gives me some confidence its not going to catch fire !
  4. its great, all works now, just need to sourch some old 10p.s
  5. Now fixed, thanks, turns out there are three reels, but you only see two from front. Reset them and all now works.
  6. See my photos, its an old mechanical thingy....cogs rotate with number on.
  7. Ah, you mean the display (plastic cogs)are not set correctly? After 00 credit, it goes 99, 98 etc. Is it best I keep going until it stops letting me play, or reaches 00 again to see ! Then at this point, reset the cogs to 00?
  8. Thanks to some of you guys, my Cash bowl is firing up and now working. I still get the error 9102 coming up, but this does not seem to interfer witrh operation. There are two ceramic resistors on the PCB, R10 and R11. Quite large beastes. I left the machine on for 10 minutes, and then removed the PCB. Boy it was very hot, including the track and surrounding parts. I guessed this is wrong, however how hot should the resistors get? Could this be linked with another faulty track? or ground problem?
  9. I've got my Lucky two's now working, and paying out (old 10p's!) It lets me play, even when it gets down to 00 on the credit indicator. The back door is shut. Any ideas? Technically it should not let me play if I have zero credit Its not a major problem, but I'd like to fix this last little glitch so another one of my "toys" is working. Thanks
  10. Change Reel MCU chip from V9 to V10. All lights now work as expected. Audio is quiet and crackly. I noticed two ceramic resistors, white rectangular things, getting very very hot - ie PCB was very warm as well. This doesn't seem right. Its says 7W on em. These are comoing of the +VLAMP line to ground. Is it normal they get really hot? Still getting 9102 error though.
  11. Thanks, found a break, still gives me a 9102 error, but can now works with the sound boards. Can now enter credits, but lights are going nuts. all sounds work, but where lights are going mad, can't see what going on. Any more ideas? Thanks, spending hours, but getting closer !
  12. Hi, Under other threads, I have now managed to fix the PCB on my CASH BOWL and get her to fire up. In order to get the thing to fire up, spin the reels and light up, I have to firstly disconnect the audio / expansion board. Then, she starts up, but I get an erro 9102 - Box meter RAM corrupted. Anyone know where this relates to, or how to fix it. With the audio board in, she keeps going through start up and before spinning reels - resets. Thanks again
  13. Thanks, this likely to be another broken track somewhere, or a damaged chip.
  14. On another thread, I asked for help to get a Cash Bowl machine up and running. It now powers up, but I get an error on the display PC= on the top display and 72 or St on the bottom (credits display). I cant find anything in the book. Any ideas? Thanks
  15. This morning, found a through hole track on the board that had corroded. Fixed it and now get power and startup. It now goes throught he sequence of identifying the stake CA06 5jp etc. The comes up with "PC=" in the display and "ST" on the bottom display... Cant see error PC= anyway in the manual. Any ideas? Thanks. Chuffed that it seems to be getting there, from a dead duck.
