Hi all,

My name is michael, new here and new to fruit machine ownership, I've just been given a pinball wizard fruit machine and after a little bit of tidying up and sorting out (decals and bulbs etc) I thought I'd got it all working perfectly, however...

Every time the machine has to pay out, even a pound it will empty the hopper completely as if it doesn't know it's spitting out any coins and just keeps trying, it then comes up with call attendant and iou message. I have looked into it as much as I can and cleaned all the pins and sockets from the hopper but to no avail. Is there anything else I can try or test?

Also if anybody has any information on this machine I'd be very grateful, I have no paperwork what so ever. I would like to make it free play too if that's at all possible?

Many thanks,
Mike
