    I have just got a Keenely Venus EM Bingo, it works but!! the win doesn't clock up the the control fan works and the first two cogs turn but doesn't search for the winning lines any ideas or resolutions would help, i don't have a schematic for it so can't trace it.

    Thanks in advance guys

    The buttons on the lockbar handle search and award. Are you pressing them? I think the red button is the register replays (search) button.

    If looking for help with a issues you should change the title of your thread to reflect that. Alot of people will come to a thread to help with a problem but wont click on generic thread titles like this one.

    I've had my head in one of these at one point... I recall them being similar to the Bally setup. There should be multiple large search discs, and as the disc is rotating, it is scanning the combinations of possible winners. When it finds one, it will hold that search disc in place while the user makes a choice.

    bingobutch recently fixed one, and he told me that it operates a bit differently than expected... but I don't remember what he said.

    I'd start by looking for the search discs and cleaning as needed. If they rotate in the same way as Bally games, there will be small metal hooks that sit in grooves beside the search disc. These are called slip rings and slip ring wipers. Those also need to be clean to transfer power to the search relays. Several search relays activated simultaneously will allow the search index (or whatever Keeney called it) to pull and hold the disc in place while the user makes a choice.

    Some photos of the backbox interior would probably help, but it is likely going to come down to 'keen' observation without the appropriate paperwork.

    You might check with Steve Young's Pinball Resource to see if he has a copy of the paper for it.
