Was hoping that someone might have a good picture for reference on the wiring for the coin door. Someone before us decided to cut a bunch of wires on it and now I am trying to fix them but could really use a picture if possible. Thanks in advance. I also tried to wire some of the loose ends that I think belong but just not sure, I will attach pics of what I have.

Wow, that is a clean coin door. Here are pics of mine from an Air Aces. Send me a PM if you need more. Next time post in the EM Tech portion.

I need some coin door parts. Do you have spare parts?

While some guy really destroyed that coin door it is nice that he left the wire strands hanging as that makes it immensely easier to fix. I presume the problem you are having with just matching them up and putting them back is that the wiring is faded (else not sure why you asked), which means pictures probably won't help either as you still need to rely on these wire colors. Try shining a flashlight on the insulation to pick out colors, regardless if you're matching them up to the strands or using great pictures Skidave provided, what a great act of kindness.

The nice thing about a lot of these old EMs is that even two different machines' wiring harnesses usually fade at the same rate to the same weird colors, in my experience, which means 2018 pictures will be able to help you fix your machine in 2018 style considering they both should be faded. Hopefully you will be able to fix this up and get it going again!

To be fare, I had taken the door all apart and cleaned it. These pics are the after pics. It wasn't that clean when I started. As for spare parts , sadly no I don't. We were given this game a couple of years ago, we new it didn't work but had the intentions of fixing it but life seemed,to happen and well it say for awhile. My husband has been working outta town so I decided I'm gonna attempt to fix with out him knowing and surprise him. But now he surprised me,and the job is just about over so what I thought I would have until Aug is now 2 weeks,lol guess joke is on me, but I think if I can just get this door figured out I should be ok. And the pics are GREAT THANK YOU. I think I found 1 issue so far, this is the pic.it seems that maybe these wires may have been switched at some point. They look switched according to ur pic, so I'm wondering if I need , to change them around.

That is a switch, in which case it works both ways no matter which way the wires are, as long as they are the right ones. The factory solder job is also a given that you shouldn't fix it because it is where it needs to be.

I live in Reading. If you want me to swing by to have a look at it sometime if I can find the time let me know.

Otaku....THANKYOU for the advice of shining the light, yes matching wires is a major pain, I tried what u suggested and then,moved some wires around to try to see and WOW these things (wire) faded big-time. I wasn't expecting that. But then again I'm learning this as I go. So thank you for the tip

Also, you should really be soldering and then shrink-tubing these tied together wires. For both safety and integrity otherwise they will quickly loosen and separate with the vibration of the machine, and MUCH MORE importantly leaving them bare and not even trying to cover them up with tape or something is asking for big trouble in a machines with a metal door and filled with metal bits. Invest in a cheap soldering iron and shrink tubing can be used with a lighter and is cheap and provides great insulation. (Electrical tape is bad)

Best of luck with it!

I did get the iron , I had to replace the fuse holder, but I didn't get and shrink tubing yet, but my son's may have some I will have to look. And to be honest I was just gonna use tape but you have a good,point so I will get the tubing.thanks,again
