What types of IGT machines do you have S-plus, PE-plus, S-2000’s or I-Games? Also I’m unsure of what type of BV you have WBA, MARS, DBV, 200 head etc.

One thing to keep in mind when swapping out BV’s is that the IDO has to match the game version such as the PE-Plus and S-Plus games have ether a IDO 22 or 23 depending on the game version. Also be sure the games BV option is enables which requires Key-chips or set-chips to enable.

If all the above is set right then you can begin to trouble shoot each part of the BV assembly. Having known good parts to swap out is the easiest. There will be the power supply, BV head, BV transport and the BV can. Each component can be swapped out with a known good part until the machine works. This shouldn’t be a problem since you have so many games.

wow, what a fast response...

i have 4 s2000 but only two share the same type of BV.

is there something the guy did wrong after changing the battery and rechipping? do i need to attempt a rechip again?

he tried to enable the printer, it didnt work, so he put it back like it was...but the BV only takes my cash and spits it back out!

thanks for fast response!

S-2000 usually shipped with a WBA bill validator although I have seen some with the new Cash flow system. The early S-2000 also shipped with DBV heads which was changed to the WBA. Knowing what type BV you have will help in troubleshooting since each one has their quirks.

Check the options of the games and be sure the BV setting is enabled. If they are enabled then they will not have to be Key-chipped again.

WBA bill validators often need to be recalibrated with special calibration paper this is also true for 200-Heads. Quite often before calibrating the small wheels within the head need to be cleaned. Debris builds up on the small wheels throwing the calibration off. If these are the heads you have clean the small wheels within the heads with a small screwdriver then use a damp cloth to get them clean.

Have you tried to clean the small wheels from all the build up on them? Sometimes the calibration paper will be needed but often a cleaning of the wheels will work. This is a common problem in casinos.
