I have a bally e-2000 slot machine.It is a 3 reel machine and the third reel coil is stuck on. When i turn the game on I can play one spin and then get a fault code of 43 (third reel fault). Then it tilts. I changed the tirac that drives it on the i/o board,no help. Any ideas? Thanks
Ron

I am unfamiliar with the reel mech in your machine but if you can swap around the reels and see if the problem follows. Basically whenever there is a reel problem you want to narrow down if it is the reel or the MPU/wiring. By swapping around the reels say reel one to reel three you can see if the problem follows the reel or stays the same which would then indicate a MPU or wiring problem.

Should have mentioned I already did this and the third reel is still locked on. I can try wiring,but it appears to be the i/o board. I have all the manuals for this slot,but as I'm sure you know,there are no schematics for the board. Just the interconnect schematics. I put a scope on it and really dont see anything. Thanks for any help.

Unfortunately I have never had to work on an older 2000/3000 Bally machine that you have. The I/O for the reels since the 80ís such as the 5000 Bally series machines have the I/o built into the MPU. Your machine I am guessing has this built into a PCB board dedicated to running the I/O for the reels. If you know it is not in the reel then it has to be in the wiring or I/O. usually it is not the wiring although as machines age it can become a problem. Most likely it is the I/O board that has a bad reel driver. I used to do board work on MPUís for games like the S+ PE+ Bally 5000 and so on and it can sometimes be as simple as a burnt transistor which can act as a sort of fuse or break before more damage was done. After that it should feed into a transistor before being sent to the boards main processing. I would check for these components and each reel should have their own I/O transistor and resistor. I wish I had more experience with your machine but it is a little before my time. Let me know how it goes.
