Subject: IGT Wild Cherry slot machine handle stuck

I have a IGT Wild Cherry slot machine in which the handle is stuck. It will not pull. The spin reels button works perfectly, though. Also, it will not accept paper money anymore.
Any ideas?

There is a solenoid on the handle mech that allows it to be pulled down. These solenoids often go bad or have loose connections. I am unsure what type of BV you have but in general be sure the machine is not in the middle of a game and is playable with a coin. Then check the components of the BV separately there is the Head, Transport and the Can. The Head is what the BV first slides into and verifies the bill. The Transports simply transports the bill to the Can for storage. Also certain BV heads will only take certain money. Such as the JCM DBV-145 will only take bills prior to 2003.

Thanks for the reply Jeremy. Are solenoids expensive or difficult to replace? Coin operated play works just fine.
Also, the BV does not light up as it used to. Is there anything with the software or firmware that could cause both of these conditions to occur. I seem to remember reading somewhere that a tilt could cause this.
Thanks, Jeff

The solenoid can be a bit tricky to replace but is straight forward. If you have ever worked on an old car you wont have many problems as the handle Mech is all mechanical except the solenoid. You can reach your hand into the machine carefully and push the lever the solenoid usually does then pull the handle just to be sure that is the problem and not something else. Im not sure how much they cost anymore as it has been awhile.

The BV can have any number of problems that need to be walked through.

1. Be sure it is enabled if it was working and no MPU or game changes have been made then most likely it is. Push the whit self-test switch until you see a 9 in the other LCD there should be a 1 for enabled or a 0 for disabled.
2. The BV power supply would cause a BV to steal or not cycle at all
3. The Head
4. The Transport
5. The Can make sure this is seated all the way in.

Each of these things can cause a BV not to work I am still unsure which BV you have. One thing to mention is that in a casino I can do part swapping with the machine next to the broken one until the problem is solved. This can make things much easier for problem machines. If you dont have this option then it will be a bit harder to troubleshoot.
If the Machine works with coins then it is not in a tilt.
