  • What is happening in this video, is when he triggers the scan start, the carriage is "seeking" a selection. The carriage will travel twice. If no selection is found it will automatically stop again at the home position. In your case 277. If you need any more help with the issue in the future, and Ron Rich isn't around, hit me up. http://gamesmedic.com

  • How is it going on your STD-2 unit?  I see you entered your video in February — have you received a solution to your problem?  Difficult to discover and diagnose your problem from a video but I would guess that you have a defective "one-shot board" in your upper control center.  I doubt that the problem is in the Tormat — and ALL Microlog Seeburgs are programmed to stop on 277 (or 177) – normal.  I do not do well with YouTube but you can feel free to contact me by eMail at [email protected] I am on Long Island and it is practically impossible to find a repair person in my vicinity at any cost.  Good Luck!

  • I got a chennal called cloudthetank that I use for my videos. I have jukebox videos that mite help you out.

  • hi i have the same problem with my jukebox too its the same model as yours but im in the uk and have no plans for mine, the guy i got it from seemed to think it was a fuse but thats not the case. im a mechanic so i will fix it in time. do you have wiring diagrams maybe i can help

  • hey dod, how,s your seeburg mission going, quick question, you say this machine is on freeplay, do you know how this machine has been put on free play, did they do that by removing the pricing card, [look at the black box up top, digital pricing unit, does it have like a card thing in it,] if there is one there remove it, but be WARNED, turn power off first, i usually unplug and remove the card the next day as it is possible to fritz your boxes very easily just by unplugging, plugging things in and out on this circuit, from memory kay pad is part of circuit too, i unplug anyway and leave till later,   cheers. ps, you have checked all the  fuses haven,t you   kelso

  • well spotted scott, double d, as you select first and second digit, the first and second digit lights should light up, [should make a kind of a click as you select each of the first two digits, then like a clunk as the third is pressed and mech takes off,  hahahahah] undo the couple of screws on the panel that holds the buttons and windows in place, fold the panel down [be carefull as panel is now free to fall into machine] and look at the back of the push button assembly, there should be two wires attached to the side to a pair of fingers[thats your trigger], if wires attatched, turn them around and try, although doubt thats your problem, pretty sure you need to check your -27volts[negative], think from memory it,s in your dcc around f3102 fuse, check your manual. cheers

  • hey double d, kelso here again, carma is such an odd animal, just after messaging you i was on ebay, was a cheapish std2 on there that i bid on, hope to win it, used to have a nice one, the consecutive chaser lights were red, looked really cool, great sound, sold it to a mate, miss that box, lots of luck [and often cursing] with your box. cheers.   kelso

  • DoubleODude, It appears you have no credits shown in the selection window. Click the manual credit switch located on the same panel as the scan switch. Once you establish credit, you should be able to select the 3 digits and the mech will start to scan. After you get the credits figured out, try the battery trick again. Read the manual so you have a good understanding of how everything operates, and be sure to clean the Detent Switch contacts – this is usually a problem area.
