  1. Exactly what I was thinking when I saw this post. How about they name their company name?
  2. Did you try to disconnect the 9 pin connector that is the there and see if you can still coin it up? Looks like a rats nest of wires there, I would pull those all apart and eliminate the 9 pin wiring from the connector back. I am sure there is coin door wiring there to get it to coin up. After looking at the wiring, I don't know if they have any of the bill acceptor stuff wired in. Looks like it is just zip tied to get it out of the way. Cut the zip tie at the bottom and separate stuff.
  3. Did you check the switches in the gantry? If it doesn't think it hit the end of the string, the claw will never close. It might not be hitting the switch or the switch is broke.
  4. I have run multiple candy cranes and always have them set at $.50 to play till you win. I always use good candy and keep it around the 3-5 cents each price point. Sometimes the claw grabs one, the other time maybe 2-3, but you are always still making money on it. I have also used tootsie rolls, laffy taffys and now and laters to mix in as well. Good time to buy is clearance sales after holidays at like Target, Walmart,, etc. and picking up candies like skittles, laffy taffy etc.. that have a long shelf life. You can usually get into good candy for the 2 cent each range that way.
  5. These are the cheap crappy chinese mechs. All the ones I had jammed all the time, etc.. so I replaced them with a Imonex R9 rolldown mech and you will never have any issues.
  6. Are people still making money with Sports Arena on location? Isn't that game like 25 years old???
  7. Post on craigslist or look on craigslist. You can also find a broken arcade game on Ebay and convert it over with the stuff you have.
  8. I switched away from the Coast to Coast and Coastal Amusements stuff and went with basically all Smart cranes. Price point is good and all the ones I have never break down. I have had the candy cranes, Prizetime Deluxe and the Toy Chest ones they make and all have been VERY reliable... If you had me rate cranes, I would say ICE is #1, but expensive and then a very close #2 would be Smart since their stuff is decently priced and reliable.
  9. Take a picture of the coin mech that accepts the coin. Hard to help if we don't know what the actual mech looks like.
  10. Sold a couple things recently. Here is what I will have with pricing: 60" Pinnacle Crane- $700 46" Toy Soldiers Crane- $800 2x Movie Stop Prize Redemption- $550 each 2x Barber Cuts- $900 each Flaming Finger prize redemption(one with side compartments)- $600 31" Prize Cube crane- $1400 31" Toy Taxi crane- $700 46" PrizeTime Deluxe(green color, bought new last year)- $2500 31" Spin Zone prize redemption(made by Smart and bought new last year)- $2500 Keymaster prize Redemption- $3400 Think that's about it for now. Keeping some smaller stuff I hope to place out in other locations....
  11. Lost some locations and need to sell some of this stuff: 3x Barber Cut prize merchandisers Winners Cube prize redemption 31" Prize Cube crane 46" Toy Soldiers Crane MovieStop prize redemption 31" Toy taxi crane Let me know if you are interested. All located in the Chicago Suburbs...
  12. Did you run it through the calibration? Sounds like its a calibration issue and its slightly off?
  13. I bet that air hockey table has close to 200K clicks on it. I would look for another table like a used Dynamo black light one like a Firestorm or Flash. Maybe even a Ice Fast Track one. I have a line on one for $900 in excellent condition, but I don't think you are close to me(Chicagoland).
  14. Basically Ipads, galaxy tablets are always a good bet. I also run Beats(the smaller wireless power beats ones) and they do just as well. If you want a little bit cheaper prizes, I also put in bluetooth speakers and people seem to go for those just as much.
  15. Air hockey tables make a ton of money in the right location. All depends on the model though, which one did you find?
