Not getting any power to the coin door. Help!
Using a P80 Pascal board.
Cannot set the 3 digit code to Spirit by pressing the TEST button on inside of coin door.
Reconnected all the connectors. Getting power from the board.

Any suggestions???

I have the same issue with my Joker Poker Pascal. I know they are 2 different boards, but same issue

All fuses checked, tried 2 different New P80 boards, double checked all plugs, nothing. Slam switch is correct though without power to the coin door seems like that is where the issue is. New restored game just dead on arrival. Has to be something simple. Anyone have any ideas??

Steve Charland would be the man to ask if he was still with us. And swanng never shares the System 80 information he hoards. Maybe John Robertson.........

Open the backbox and with the power off, unplug connectors A1-J5 and A1-J6. Turn the machine back on. If the machine comes to life (flashing lights, etc.) then you have a stuck slam tilt and/or switch shorting. Turn the machine off and check the slam-tilt on the coin door and the roll-ball tilt that these switches are clean and normally closed. Check the coin door switches for shorts. You will have to remove any coin mechanisms to clearly view the coin switches. Note that the coin lockout wires may tangle with the coin switches, shorting them out. Check to see that none of the coin switches are stuck closed. If none of these are a problem you'll have to look elsewhere for a shorted switch. Once you correct the short, reconnect A1-J5 and A1-J6 and turn the machine back on and the machine should come up and be ready for play.

Figured it out. Coin lockout wire got tangled and shorted it out. Thanks!
