Bally Slot will not pay out

Can anyone give me some advice/suggestions on a problem I have with one of my slots. Let me mention that I have many mechanical slots and am pretty much OK with working on and understanding them. When it comes to Bally electrics, I am as dumb as a "door nail".
I thought if I ask this question someone might have a simple solution that I could understand, like cleaning a contact or something like that.

The machine in question is a Bally. On the side is a metal plate that reads" Bally Manufacturing with these numbers: 1114-10 and 1114-298. Not sure if these help with identifying the model, so I have uploaded a couple of photos.

The problem is that the machine works except it will not pay out on any combination. Perhaps I could just clean some contacts if directed on which contacts and where they are located.

I live in Little Rock, AR and don't have access to anyone nearby to help me with this.

Thanks!!
Nick

Hello Nick
If you search ebay, "bally slot repair manual" you'll find a manual for $44.95 and a video for $31.99. These are two great tools for cleaning and trouble shooting most of the Bally EMs. They really helped me and I have gotten several back and working with small problems. Usually a good cleaning, which the video goes through in great detail. Hope this helps. Leo

Thanks leospanner!

I have a Bally repair manual, but it is like reading Greek for me. I just can't follow it.
I will look into the video, however. That might help!

Leospanner,

Is this the video that you are refering to? Just want to be sure before I order it: Slot Machine Repair video DVD Vol 1 & 2 for Bally EM slot machines.
Seller: bigdaddyenterprises_pinball

By the way the manuals I have are the ones put out by Bally. VERY COMPLEX!
I did order the one by Geddes and Mead.

Thanks again for your advice.
Nick
