This is the first video produced about bingo machine maintenance that I know about, and it comes from a guy who got a bit of his knowledge from a long time bingo operator (and designer of Bally EM slot machines).
The video is targeted at people who own a working machine and want to keep it that way. Some of the topics covered are:
The nice thing is that much of the information also applies to getting a game working to begin with, so if you are staring at a warehouse game that hasn't been powered on in 20 years, the video will help for that also.
What it's not
This is not an game overhaul/rebuild video. While Alan shows removal of the search wipers, taking apart the control unit or mixer shaft assemblies is beyond the scope of the material. Likewise, this is not a debugging video. If you are trying to solve a specific problem, you're not going to get a direct answer.
The other thing it's not is HDTV. Since the resolution is fairly
low, it will look a lot better on a television than it will on
a computer. Here's a few screen shots:
I think it's a great effort for the first bingo video. There's some things it doesn't talk about like removing the backglass or raising the playfield. Are things like that needed?
