    I just bought a New Continental Golden pinball bingo machine. It turns on but will not go in play mode. The tilt flashes and it says Code- Err. 06. Can anyone help me fix the problem. Thanks

    Nice game!! Did it come with manual or schematics?

    #3 69 days ago

    Is the tilt switch closed? Does it attempt to reset at all?

    #4 69 days ago

    I have the manual of a Continental Magic scanned here:
    https://www.flippers.be/basics/101_bingo_machines.html

    maybe it can help you troubleshoot the issue.

    I don't know much more about bingos so can't answer specific questions.

    Thanks for the response. This is my first pinball machine. I don’t know much about them. I do not have a manual or any paperwork. Aeneas, thanks for the link. I will check it out. I’m not sure where the tilt switch is, or how would I reset the game? Thanks

    I don't know anything about bingo machines, but this looks like a manual to it

    EDIT:Nevermind. Apparently this is a solid-state bingo.

    Thanks for all the info. Interesting to read on how these were gambling machines. Probably would explain the metal bar with metal buttons above the coin deposits. I really hope I can by pass the programming that’s sounds like May only be available from some guy in Belgium.
    Vireland... What you said, makes some since. The person I bought it from said it worked fine for a while. He didn’t turn it on for a long time, and when he did, this code popped up. He said he was going to test all the fuses but never got around to it. This machine is well taken care of and looks in nice shape. I will post more pics as I would like to know what some of the switches are for inside. I really want to get it operational. I only paid $100 for it, and to me, the appearance of it sitting there is worth that. I’ll keep you posted

    There are not switches to clean with a flextone, this is a solid state machine.

    I've never worked on a solid state bingo, so can't comment beyond saying good luck!

    The manual should tell you what the error code is, if the manual is complete.

    Ah, didn't know bingos made it into the solid state era!

    They are still made today in Belgium. Some of the first games to use what we consider modern technology in pinball.

    Here is some pics. I’m assuming the weights hanging down are the tilt mechanisms on the inside. Does anyone know what the little toggle switch would be next to the row of lights that indicate how many balls are inside. Thanks.

    Unless there's something unique to bingos, those tilt bobs are installed upside down. The big part should be hanging on the bottom of the two in the picture.

    I don't see what you're pointing to on the coin door. The slam tilt switch is bent WAY too far back, but that's about all I see...

    Not unique to bingos, unique to games where tilt actually matters (many older games use this setup, as well as some modern games like bingos). In the case of bingos, you're talking big bucks. So if the tilt bob fails, it needs to fall down and instantly tilt the game rather than sitting on the bottom of the cab and preventing tilting...

    Interesting. Never realized there would be a reason to flip it the other way since it limits the swing.

    There's a whole world of unusual info to explore with bingos and the cat and mouse approach to anti-cheat. Pretty cool to read about on a rainy day.

    While it limits the upper part of the swing, the lower is still free to fly back and forth. Tilt is super critical in these games (and many 30s/40s/50s games).

    I mentioned it above, but bingo pinballs were using solid state tech in the early 1960s. Pretty neat!

    Regarding this particular game, I'm still clueless, though. Sorry OP. If you haven't tried already, try emailing Danny - email on danny.cdyn.com

    Thanks guys. I will try and email Danny. Is there a way of resetting the tilts? Just trying to do process of elimination on why the error code is on. I appreciate the help.

    It may be displaying tilt by default - showing that the machine is out of order.
